When I played my Warlock way back when, Soulshatter was the source of an incredible amount of hatred for me: It had a huge cooldown, can be resisted, can be REFLECTED, and after all of that, only cuts your threat in half versus other threat dropping movies. It's kind of ridiculous.

I believe that the ability to have Soul Shatter resisted is one of the things they have fixed in the current expansion at some point. Though I could be wrong, I thought I saw that mentioned on the forums. (If not, it's considered an unfortunate behavior/bug that it can be resisted, at least.)

This article would have been more relevant back when the CD was 5 minutes and threat was more of a problem but it should never have been resisted as it was based of your hit rating. You always had that capped though, right?

Curse you crschmidt, commenting at the same time as I am!Yes, Soulshatter used to be resistible but here's Ghostcrawler confirming that being removed in Wrath:http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=21035173936&pageNo=9#164*blows a raspberry to the mages that say I don't research this stuff*

Well, I let you have "Summon Felguard" while I was writing this one, so consider us even. Though when we started in ICC, I had the same problem as hehealme; despite raiding as a BM hunter, I would still pull off of our tanks, despite my pet doing 35% of my damage and using misdirect correctly. Since then, I've switched to a guild with better tanks, and don't have the same problem. :)

Even though it "cannot be resisted" nowadays (and I am at hit cap), I still have Soulshatter do absolutely nothing several times. I hit it and the boss still turns to come chasing after me a moment later. "Half" threat reduction on a 3 minute cooldown is so pitiful compared to every other pure DPS class. Warlocks need a real threat reduction ability. You think they could have buffed Soulshatter to 100% (or even 75%) instead of buffing our threat reduction talents (that are split between two trees...), but no...
