What is the expectation on abilities like Feign Death and such these days? Back In The Day (tm) it seemed that the hunters I knew treated it as a real emergency 'argh I pulled aggro' thing. In Wrath I would quite often see hunters approaching the tank's threat level, FDing *very* briefly to wipe threat, then continuing to go all out. I have no idea how it works in Cata, not done any instancing yet and I don't play a hunter main.This goes for abilities other classes have to wipe or cut threat of course, like a Warlock's Soul Shatter. Do they reduce all current threat permanently, or only until some internal cooldown is up and then suddenly the lost threat is dumped back onto you?As a tank I worry when people approach me in threat, but have never paid much attention to threat reduction abilities. I assume that people who play those classes know how they work and use them sensibly ;)
