    To hit with Taunt

    Hello.
    When taunt now benefit from hit, how much do we need?
    If you are able to cap it, you can skip that second offtank you have in case of resists.

    I guess taunt still act according to spell resistance. Will it also cap at 16(?)% as spells? Will it benefit from spell hit as well now?

    Very unsure about the spell hit value, probably something I've read somewhere.

    Perhaps this is already an answered question, but I could'nt find it.

    Although its a spell, It works on Melee hit and not spell hit, So i would guess it would be 9% because of that.

    Dont quote me on that mind

    Taunt resist mechanics will change from spell hit to melee hit in 2.3. That means 9% hit vs boss mobs.

    My only true concern is will it operate in the same way as all other melee hit mechanics and get parried/dodged as well! O_o.

    Either way, at least we can realistically itemize for it now.

    Depends on how you define a huge buff; most of the lv+3 Boss encounters aren't tauntable. There are few fights where you need to taunt frequently on a Boss, which is where a resist can really matter. 4H being the primary example, I think?

    But yeah, awaiting some actual tested results on resist rates, before saying if this is a boost or not. Whether or not taunts will ignore parry/dodge (like Blind) is something that also needs confirming; but I suspect that they will.
