@AJActually you're completely wrong...I can't remember the last time I pulled aggro from the tank, and I'm a rogue who tops the metres pretty much every time. I use vanish to get myself a bonus overkill a lot more often then I have to use it to drop aggro regardless of the tank. Can't use FD and your aggros getting up there? Use MD on the tank mid-fight.. that's what its there for.This is *nothing* to do with 'not knowing how to play a hunter well hurhur'. This is knowing how to play a DPS class well. Here is how you do it:1) Do as much damage as you can to the required target(s) at the right time without pulling aggro from the tank.2) See #1.Tank has to move in a fight? He loses some threat generation. Adjust. Tank has to pick up multiple mobs? He loses some threat generation on the main mob. Adjust. You have to change targets to do something else? ADJUST.There is much more to playing a DPS class then looking up the optimal rotaion and then mindlesss spamming it from 30 yards away while staring at recount. What do you think happens to me if I go all out on say, Ignis? The boss would turn around and one shot me within about 10 seconds and my damage would be a great big ZERO. The undergeared scrub who lived would now be worth more to the raid then I was because they are still doing damage.You have a 30 second CD complete aggro wipe and a 30 second aggro dump onto the tank. Use them, they are in the game for that reason.
