Id like to take this time to voice my opinion on the warior VK threat generation. Ive been tanking on my warrior for about 3 months now. Ive used a 51 point VK build since 1.5. 8 paladin for touch of life and 6 WL for Battlefield awareness aggro generation. The mitigation from the 51 point spec. 20/10% mitigation was a bonus and holding aggro from Sab specd or MM specd rogues was NEVER and issue and I never had the rogue put up incriminate. He could blast full dps from the begining of the fight throughout and I never lost threat. I had no threat "Threashhold" with them. Ive been in ROS and GSB with dps who held around 1500 to 1800 single target and never lost threat to them. NEVER. Untill this new 1.6. My spec is no longer valid at all. Im having to blow every CD I have just to gain threat back from them. And that's with using the Call to battle skill when ever its off CD. This shouldn't happen. I havn't read the tanking thread so i don't know who else is having issues with threat or if they love the new changes. However, threat isn't the only issue. My overall mitigation is down about 7% from what it was. This is taken from data based on 17 T2's run over the course of two days. Its been a constant 7% more incomming dps overall in every dungeon from what it was. I used 3 different meters to judge this. Riftcount, RJP and ACT. My overall block is decreased and i think that maybe where the difference is comming from. I was under the impression that you guys where making the 51 point specs more viable in raids. That may have been a misconception on my part.
I do however LOVE what you guys did for my rogue tank. The threat generation is up and the overal mitigation is awesome. I have noticed when Off Tanking GSB that I cannot hold the threat on my warrior against the rogue tank we run with. He doesnt even use any force taunts and he rips aggro away from my warrior. This just makes me a little concerned about the direction you're heading with the warrior. We're not multi talented like the rogues/clerics. We cannot support we dont heal. The only thing warriors CAN do is tank and dps...... Shouldn't warriors be the specialists in this? I know you're trying to balance things out but really you've made me a very unhappy warrior but you've made my rogue VERY happy.
