If a tank can't hold threat after the recent changes. He is absolutely doing something wrong. There is almost no excuse for not being able to hold threat, after say the first 5 seconds of picking up a mob (or mobs). I actually struggle to not hold threat and during tank swap bosses (Rag most often) I have to stop hitting him till my OT gets enough vengeance to compete with me (threat-wise).I also disagree strongly with taunting being your first action to pick up an add. All tanks have at least some form of ranged attack that is better to gain threat with (that should always outthreat "incidental" damage/heals from other people). If your mage decides to blow his **** on the mob and pull threat, this is when you hit your taunt, suddenly all the wonderful threat your mage just pumped into the add is now yours, and if you're lucky, all his cooldowns have been used.
