If a bear uses Thorns correctly on a pull, there is no way he should lose aggro. As long as each mob in a pack hits the bear just once, the amount of damage and threat from thorns should easily keep those mobs sticking to him. If swipe misses and a mob aggros to another player, he has faerie fire, and, failing that, growl, as ranged aggro abilities.Honestly it feels like most tanks are pretty much equal with AoE threat; pallies are still slightly better solely because of avenger's shield, or the avenger's shield + consecrate combination. When doing 5mans on my fury warrior, I've been able to pull off of pally tanks about as much as I have from DK's and warriors. Don't run into too many bears to know, but IMO bear threat is all about thorns.Also, if you have a druid in your group, and she's good at casting thorns on the tank, AoE aggro will be ridiculously more easy for your tank to maintain.
