"showing just how much aggro you're getting from whatever you've got targeted."By itself, it doesn't seem useful to healers, who rarely have a mob selected. (I heal via mouseover macro and generally have either nothing or the tank explicitly targeted.)However, quoting commenter Skajake: "Did you know that up until now KTM and Omen simply had to guess the threat values from abilities and match it against known item / talent modifiers?"If true - and thus leading to better threat mods - then yes, hooray.

You can now use the focus window (which had an API before but now has a direct UI component) to keep the mob targeted (providing threat info) and heal the rest of the group using the focus window. Not sure how viable this really is, and I tend to agree that the best part of the threat feature is the new API to aid in the threat mods.

You might be interested in my mod: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info10151-AggroNotifier.html.As long as at least one person or pet in your party or raid is targeting a mob that is aggro'd on you then you'll get a customizable visual and/or audio warning that you have aggro. It also pays attention to anything you've set as your focus target.I'm a healer and made the mod because I wanted that instant "oh crap" warning. It is certainly not a replacement for a real threat meter, but it is perfect for any class that doesn't want aggro and needs instant (and obvious) info about when they gain and lose aggro.
