Taunt pull,
Do not taunt pull unless the mobs are already coming at you or after a healer (Gothik the Harverster would be an example) and all your ranged spells are on CD. Taunt pull = "Mobs come at me for two seconds, whoops someone did something and now they're running off and now my taunt is on CD. Now i have to run to the mob and grab aggro whooo i just made everything harder on myself.

Tanking is a joke now compared to what warrior tanks and off tanks had to deal with in 40 man naxx and AQ. Why even argue, they are all easy and easy to heal.

There are times, when as long as your DPS aren't morons and can follow instructions, it is perfectly good to taunt pull.

Snakes at the start of Gundrak for example. They're spaced too far to hit more than one with a shield. Taunt the lead one, as they come over they bunch up, throw shield, threat established. You just need your DPS to understand what "Don't DPS until I throw shield" means.

Don't forget about Shield of Templar. That's another 3% reduction for paladins.

I would like to ammend my statement when I said "at you" i meant patrolling toward you, not already in combat.

And why don't you just mark one instead of wasting your taunt CD?

....Hunh?

Actions not directed solely at the mob still generate threat on the mob. If I "mark" the lead mob for the DPS, and they open up on it while the other mobs in the pull are still too far apart for me to hit with a shield, theyr'e going to put threat on and quite probably pull those mobs...

I'm saying that taunting the lead guy to get the rest to bunch up so you can shield them is as much a utility technique as LoS pulling around a corner or doorway is a utility technique. Both require your DPS to know what you're doing, and not screw it up by DPSing too soon.

That's why you have the initial 3 second rule, once the tank has the adds for 3 seconds, open the **** up.

You didn't train consecrate? Unless the DPS is standing in front of you they're still going to have to come by you.

The legs had dropped in UK last week [I was tanking with fiances pally], and had lost the roll to a Holy pally.
I opened a ticket, and told them that i had won the roll, but didnt realize my bags were full, and thus hadnt looted it.
A week later, this is in the mail.
Best.
Day.
Ever.
For me on that pally.

Had also gotten him the emblem ret and prot trink, and prot neck. The ret and tank legs [ H UP and H VH]. The Black War Mammoth. The Spiked Titansteel Helm...
Ive been busy while my fiance hasnt been able to play.
:]
Now to get my lock gear >.<

In my example, I'm saying that the group of mobs is too far apart to hit them all in one go, so if I just hit the lead one, it is certainly in the realm of possibility that the healer/dps opening up on the lead mob might generate enough threat on the other mobs that one or two ticks of consecrate might not be enough to guarentee them to pull to me as they enter the area of effect.

The choices are "Assume consecrate will do it" or "Have the DPS count to 5 so I can shield every mob in the pull" I know which is the safer bet.

Plus it's always at least a little annoying to have to shift and move to get all the mobs back in front of me if they pull on me from the side or back as they run over consecrate anyway.

So, you lied to get free gear. Classy.

I just implied that it wasn't very classy. I don't recall saying anything about OMG reporting them. I don't -care- it's just a pretty crappy thing to do, and makes them more likely to just stop doing restorations for people who legitimately should get them.
