...if only Mages hit hard enough to draw any threat anymore.

if you're not hitting hard enough to draw threat, you're not doing enough damage.You should actually have to be very good with your threat, or have a very good tank. The two best mages in our guild pull off of anyone who isn't one of our 2 main tanks. we rarely find a pug tank who can keep aggro.

Perhaps, I have good threat management...since the times I'm told I've been hitting very hard, yet seem not to pull agro. Of if do...the target is dead anyhow. But I find in general that Mages don't hit as hard as other classes now. Thus, threat goes to them before it goes to us. I guess our advantage now is we get to live longer....helping finish off a boss, when all other dps is dead.

I don't care how good your tank is if you have living bomb crit at the same time as a fireball or frostfire bolt crits, followed with a crit on the subsequent instant cast pyroblast, you're going to have your aggro go over 100%. 30k damage in less than a second is my definition of hitting hard.
