As MMO champion reports the threat system being added is rather simple currently (which i like), so it looks like it won't completely make threat mods redundant (possibly blizzards intention?) as they can take the data, display the exact threat of each member of the raid and display it in a better way, like a raid interface.As it stands, i wonder if what is currently implemented is only a way to check your own threat on a mob. Can other people see what my threat is? Again it seems like Blizzard has left some room for addon makers or could possibly be they will add more to it in future beta builds. Either way, seeing your exact threat is a good change. Just last night some guy in my raid pulled aggro when a tank had only just started building up threat. If he had omen or something, he could have backed off.

Or more likely this is only a test implementation to make sure the back end threat data is working properly. It's not like Blizzard has ever been hesitant about stamping on mod authors before (extra action bars and raid frames spring to mind). My guess is they will implement something that is equal to basic KTM, I doubt they would put in the effort for some of the esoteric features of Omen.

Wouldn't that be the point of an AddOn like Omen then? Do display the information in a more helpful way, and send and recieve informaton about other member's threat? DamageMeters currently syncs the damage of various players who have the AddOn. Frankly, the % means little to me, but if I have bars moving up and down and can see where I am as well as my relative position and see my threat on multiple targets(Omen allows multiple targets to show your current threat) that is more helpful to me. I'm a mage, and nearly ever dungeon has at least one AoE point. I couldn't imagine running Magister's Terrace like this, I'd have to have Omen running to do things properly.
