As a hunter pushing 8k-9k, on any non-movement oriented fight, I need to make use of all of my threat reduction techniques to not pull. That means two sets of misdirected shots at the start of the fight (via Readiness), constantly watching threat, especially around target swaps, etc. Different tanks have different levels of success in keeping aggro, and good tanks will do better than poor tanks, but on raid bosses -- from Deathwhisper to Saurfang to Sindragosa -- watching threat, especially when working with less-geared tanks, is a huge part of my DPS role.Of course, sometimes, you can't help the situation any. On one Deathwhisper 10 run, I poured out Misdirect onto the tank, flopped onto the floor, waited 10 seconds, and the tank still didn't have a solid lead. :/ Bad PUG tank iz bad.But this is all hunter-specific. In short: Yes, DPS can pull, especially good DPS with bad tanks. Equal-geared equal-skilled tanks and DPS, the tank will almost always be quite a ways ahead.
