Why do people keep forcing Omen upon me? I raid a lot with my mage...I'm usually #1 or #2 on the DPS chart. I don't pull aggro unless the tank hasn't gotten aggro yet or the tank is dead.Having said that, my guild makes me raid with Omen...I find that omen will trigger threat warnings _waaaaay_ before I'm close to the tank and it's terrible at letting me know when AoE mobs are heading my way. The built in threat meter is so much cleaner and easier to deal with as a mage...it gives you a nice threat percentage at the top of the target box and your portrait changes colors as you get close to pulling the mob. Same with AoE mobs...AoE till your portrait goes orange...break casting...ice block...whatever you need to do...works like a charm.When I'm tanking on my pally or leading a raid, omen is wonderful...tells me exactly who is pulling to much threat, who needs a hand of salvation, who needs a bubble, etc. Outside of that, the threat monitor in healbot (which I use for raid frames as well) gives me all I need.

as far as i remember, omen will trigger the warning at 90%, 100% and 110% of the treath... if you cant figure out what to do with this info your probably not a really good raiding mage (or at least not raiding with totw/fire spec, cant imagine how a mage could survive with that spec without omen)
