A stupidly large AP boost is a threat stat (from your armor!). Vengeance is meant to make tank threat scale off tank oriented gear, hopefully as well as dps threat scales off dps oriented gear. What people seem to be saying is that it's currently working too well (too much extra damage/threat).If what you're saying about bears was true, in late WotLK bears would have either a) been the preferred tank as their threat would've gone much higher than plate tanks & in turn allowed higher dps & shorter fights; or b) been completely forgotten about as their survivability would've lagged behind due to all the "threat stats" on their gear.I agree with your point that vengeance has been designed not to be good in PvP. Everything you said you wanted in your original post (threat stats from tank gear, pve only damage boost) is exactly what vengeance already is.Maybe the solution is to have vengeance give the same +threat bonus to each attack it already gives now, without actually dealing any extra damage.
