Optitaunt is also a great addon for tanks that need to communicate. Sure, the addon originally was for telling when taunts missed, but it also announced cd's. Only thing that tidy plates doesn't do, but wished it did was tell me if the mobs I don't have threat on are focussing on the other tank, or a raid member. I just have to wait to see health pools drop to tell if the other tank has it or not.

actually i think there's an option that does this with the threatplates enchancement package.

To tell who's being attacked, I use Grid, and set both the border and health bar to turn bright red if someone has aggro. When the only boxes that color are the tanks, I know everything's golden; if someone else has threat, I can easily select them to see what they're targeting (which is probably what's targeting them), throw an Intervene on them, etc.

Get Grid or some other raid frame and set it to highlight people with aggro.My Grid frames gain a white border around anyone with aggro.Combined with TidyPlates - I know if there is a mob I'm not holding, and I know who is holding mobs. Logic can fill in the blanks.With my warrior I've also got clique set up to let me intervene on anyone who's frame I middle click. Which is usually enough to recapture a mob - at least in trash pulls where I can be more sloppy about position.

I do run grid with threat warnings on it, but it only changes color once they overtake threat, and it also means that the mob has started beating on them, hence the reason I said what I said. It's only the overzealous melee that pull usually, so it's fine if they pull a lil.Gonna have to go play with the enhanced options and see if that works.

You may have noted that "person has been set to tank" message. I'm pretty sure that threat-plates uses that to ascertain who is a taak.I'm pretty sure this is native to WoWs functionality, and threat-plates has an option to "ignore the other tank" (not quite that but it's close) based on who has been set.
