All of my characters except one are night elf, and I started experimenting with this new feature as soon as I found out that you could use Shadowmeld in combat. When you are along (no summoned pets or anything) it seems to work great. But let's say you're a hunter fighting a mob. The mob is hitting you (not the pet) and you shadowmeld. The pet will gain aggro. But when the mob kills the pet, even though you are "hidden", it still proceeds to beat the crap out of you. Something similar happened with my death knight. I accidentally aggro'd Abdul the Insane (elite) on his pirate ship. Hit hit me and proc'd the blood worms. I shadowmelded. He killed the worms and then came back after me, even though I was "hidden". I've not quite figured out this mechanic.

If you're a hunter, you can use this nifty trick i discovered a while back, which some of you probably already know. If a mob is attacking you, and you want to mount, have your pet take aggro, then put it on passive. The mob will continue to beat on your pet. Then proceed to FD (or shadowmeld), mount up, and ride off. Just MAKE SURE not to gain any aggro from the mob.

Actually, shadowmelt is not like FD. (I have a NE hunt and a NE druid)FD clean your aggro. You FD, the mob forget you, except if you hit it again (beware with DoTs).Shadowmelt is temporary. If you SM while in a group or if your pet is still fighting, you will get your aggro back when getting out of SM. If you're alone and the mob resets after you SM'd, it's alright, you can safely got out of SM.
