Let's add in the change to Righteous Fury. That is HUGE if you're a pally and suddenly there's an "oops we wiped and I forgot to put it up again"I can't count the times where I've wondered "Why is ______________ pulling off me?" and suddenly someone in my guild goes "Righteous fury Grace?"whoops. But one of our OT's is a pally too and has the same issue.

@StellaI actually like having the choice of whether or not I use RF while soloing. It's not a big deal, and maybe a little selfish, but when I'm doing my dailies in a close place with a lot of other people (basically anything in TB) I don't want to take damage for other people, since they're getting the credit for the kill I don't want to run around with a bunch of other people's aggro'd mobs on me, especially if I'm done and ready to mount up and go turn it in. More often than not people see that they tagged the mob, they will get credit for it, see I have aggro on it and leave it for me to deal with and loot it on their run back out. Sure I could just be more careful with my AoE but that makes me lose more of my (already low) dps.

There are times when soloing when you wouldn't want Righteous Fury on. For example, the Hyjal quest where Tortolla helps you kill the lava giant. He will absolutely kill you if he's on you, even as a tank. Tortolla is supposed to tank him.

In the meantime, if you don't mind installing another addon, PowerAuras can be set up to visually alert you when a certain buff isn't on. Just figured I'd let you know in case it helps :)

Soloing. Also if you gather. ESPECIALLY if you gather. You don't want some chump getting your herbs/ores because you aggro a mob. It would be nice if it automatically went on when you click Devotion Aura but still able to take it off when you want to. If you happen to be OT you don't want it on either ;)

make a power aura or something for it.you want to be able to click it off, for when you have tank swaps. festergut anyone?

Every tank in the game currently has the ability to turn off their "high threat" mode.Warriors change out of Defensive Stance.Druids shift to Cat Form.Death Knights switch to Frost or Unholy presence.Paladins click off Righteous Fury.Why? Because some fights require insane amounts of DPS, and having your offtank capable of going balls-to-the-walls without pulling aggro off the main tank is a valuable tool.Prime example: Festergut. The tank got a stacking debuff that increased all damage by 90%. After the tank swap, if a paladin is stuck with Righteous Fury on permanently, they are then screwed. They cannot use that 90% damage buff to their advantage because they'd yank threat right off the other tank and wipe the group.TL;DR: Making Righteous Fury "automatic" or "passive" is a terrible idea.Better idea: Make it so that when Righteous Fury is on, "recasting it" removes the buff.

Not to QQ about pallies, well a little QQ since I am a bear tank; but they are the only ones who take ZERO negative effects to their defensive capabilities when "turning off" their agro gain. Kitteh, one boss hit and you are dead; dropping into frost presence as a DK, one hit and you are dead; battle stance, take 10% more damage and lose access to some abilities. And to that I say, you should have to tank my mobs when doing dailies =p
