i think ugly and wartotem are talking 2 different languages. ugly, you are correct, in that vig no longer reduces threat produced. but thats NOT its function any more.
as for the strat war is discribing, i have to say it works well.. since i started this thread, ive been using vig on a lot of fights and i find that the math MEL did a page back is highl accurate for single ta rget effects or split tanking situations.
for trash pulls ( in a raid setting, not a 5 man) I have fund that having a paladin pull, and taunting adds off him as needed is a near flawless strat
