Quoth the Hortus:"The only change to pet threat in 2.4.2 is that growl no longer gets bonus threat from buffs to your pets AP (such as charge or blessing of might)."This doesn't imply that the Pet's AP has no affect on growl. It only means that AP from buffs on the pet won't affect the ability.It may be the case that Pet AP has nothing to do with growl's threat, but that's not something you can conclude from what has been said.

To be clear, I'm pretty sure that portions of my data are faulty. However, having said that, there is still evidence that something is -- for lack of a better work -- wonky with Growl. Myself, Nimizar and Ashraf have been coordinating on the WoW forums with our testing, and although we've had to throw out portions of our data, what we have left still seems to indicate that Growl is scaling with pet AP on the PTR. But investigations are ongoing, and anyone who would like to help gathering data is welcome to join us. :> I tell you -- setting everything else aside, this would be alot easier if Blizzard was a bit more forthcoming about how things are supposed to work.

It's true it would be nice if Blizzard could be more forthcoming, but at the same time I can understand why they aren't.The sheer number of mechanics, and how frequently they're tweaked behind the scenes, would require a cadre of full time staff to keep updated properly. To boot, the vast majority of populace doesn't delve far enough into the game mechanics to make use of more than [/roll]% of the information.I'm okay with them looking at that situation and deciding it isn't worth their time, but it'd be nice if when the CMs answered game mechanics questions they were a lot more specific with their language. Half of forum explosions seem to come from CM posts where it's easy to misread, and hard to figure what interpretation is correct.
