see, you are incapable of answering the question that is asked. you seem to interject secondary and tertiary answers of specific scenarios that you made up and answered yourself with no regard to actually answering the question correctly.
question: can pre-casting motifs get you aggro on the pull
answer: yes. the presence of motifs generates aggro for the bard
there's no variation; nothing else to explain. motifs generate aggro just for being up and if someone pulls, (accidentally, intentionally, it doesn't matter) you are going to have hate generated on the mob(s) pulled. that can result in aggro. period.
question: can the warrior call of entrenchment cause resonance to be missed?
answer: yes. coe overwrites motif of tenacity, and if casted at an inopportune moment, can cause resonance not to be refreshed
WELL IF YOUR BARD HAS THESE ISSUES, IT'S SLOPPY BARDING
no, it's not. it's a video game. get a life and take your attitudes elsewhere.

I agree, stop being elitist and just state what the issues are and how to fix them. I don't bard much, but I'll make sure when I do I cast MoT last now.
Dummy Foundry rocks. CQ blows. Energy is meh. MORE ROLE SLOTS! Burma shave.
I'm not trying to be elitist or bring an attitude (except my last post, that was maybe overboard), I'm just trying to explain why you're making an issue of something that isn't.
Besides, did I miss the part where you couldn't cast Tenacity last and have everything up to proc Resonance, or did that get stealth nerfed somewhere in the past seven months?
At least for my comment, the "sloppy barding" thing has sweet **** all to do with some warrior popping CoE and overwriting MoT. It has everything to do with the bard being lazy and not refreshing motifs period. There are two ways Resonance can drop, and only one of those involves someone overwriting your Motifs.
y u so mad bro?

I suggest chill pills all round.
Call to Entrench should never cause issues for you if Motifs are refreshed in an optimal order.
Call to Battle is more likely to cause you grief.
The best way to avoid losing GCDs or dropping Resonance is to simply to watch your Call to Entrench buff, when that goes up you know you have between 6 and 9 seconds (depending on the Warrior) to cast your Motifs before Bravery will be overwritten by Call to Battle.
Bards can cast Motifs at any point, Warriors cast calls at specific points in a rotation.
Logic dictates the person with more flexibility should adapt around the less flexible person in order to ensure optimal efficiency and minimum fuss for each party.
Anything less than 100% Resonance uptime in most fights is poor performance for which there is no reasonable excuse.
You can change the order in which you mash the same five buttons you have to mash to prevent this from even being a problem worth discussing. No "hand holding" whatsoever.
I'm not surprised you skipped the rest of that post, fwiw. Your posts have terrible bard and/or troll written all over them.~
