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.
