Decreased taunt cooldown, eh? At least taunt, unlike intervene (original 2T9 was -cooldown on intervene), is an ability I use on a regular basis.It's still a lot weaker than the 2T7 (+10% damage on shield slam) or 2T8 (+10% crit chance on devastate) bonuses imo. If I have to taunt twice within a few seconds, then either I bedder drop vigilance on the offtank, or I'm doing something wrong. Or the DPS is doing something wrong, getting spored all the time and having to constantly taunt Loatheb back is a good way to stay on your toes I guess, but it doesn't make for a great 2T9.

/agree... if you're having to taunt that many times back to back, something is definitely wrong with your tanking or your group. I hardly ever use growl unless I absolutely need to or it's a boss that requires two tanks to taunt back and forth. Decreased taunt by 2 seconds as a set bonus pretty much blows...

"If I have to taunt twice within a few seconds..." /agreeI hardly ever use growl unless I absolutely need to get aggro back. Normally an actually attack will solve that problem unless the dps is stupid and refuses to target another mob instead of continuously building aggro on the mob coming at them. If I need taunt to be a smaller cooldown, I'm obviously doing something wrong... so a decrease to taunts for all the tanking set bonuses? bleh... I'd rather have something more useful, like a buff to a main tanking ability for better threat building.
