Next time just report. The thread is clearly labeled "Endgame tanking". Thanks a bunch.
I haven't noticed anything to that effect. I ran 2 bear runs last night (didn't kill the last bosses on 1 of them) where myself and the 3 dps were over 20k dps on every pull (except bosses, I was only roughly 12-15k there) and had no issues. We did not have a Tricks or MD in the group, but we did have a mage (invis). The only times pickups tend to be difficult is with Fury Warriors, Frost DKs, or Hunters who seem to have misplaced their MD macros.
Wasn't he trying to do it the other way round? First use Heart Strike and then use Blood Tap - I think this is pretty senseless though...
Or maybe I'm missing your point, Crushern?
I noticed my threat on the pickup of 3 or 4 (or more) Mobs in heroics (mostly in ZA/ZG) has become a little low since the DS change. Especially when I'm in a guild group with 3 crazy AoE-Classes (Cat is insane since 4.1 imho). I have a second spec for those heroics (and even for the Halfus heroic encounter - but imho it's almost always better to DS instead of using LB+DC there when you're tanking whelps + 2 dragons, therefore I have always specced into more AoE threat for this particular fight) where I didn't pick up Lichborne but spent my points for AoE threat.
Has anyone else noticed something similar? Or is it just that my damage dealers are to good for me?
