Oh, sweet jesus, I second this. I almost quit tanking by Dwarf Warrior (leveled 43 to 46 this weekend) because of an ass that wouldn't let me Charge-Rend-Clap before he was full bore on the AoE. And then proceeded to berate me for not using Rend-Clap.

Oh - and another thing - if you steal the aggro before I get to do this... my chances of getting it back are slight, since all of my threat abilities require Rage, and Rage is generated by getting beat on. So - let the mobs beat on me a couple extra seconds, and then open up. You'll be glad you did. I promise - we'll still kill 'em fast.

As a first time tank. I leveled a warrior in prot with one condition..... Drop group when I notice a over zealous hunter. Now I'm 70 I have to watch dk's too now. Good grief.

Use cleave for number four in after applying rend since its not on the GCD with trend and thunder clap, glyph it to hit another target that will eliminate almost all of your problems. If it it's still a problem then spec into blitz

Yeah - that is actually what I do... Left off cleave, but that's my number 4 ability in the rotation. And - I even have it glyphed.

This is exactly the reason I have so much hatred for all the articles everywhere praising Blizzard for increasing threat for tanks. We can't get ANY threat if we can't hit the mobs first!

I'm levelling a resto druid, and I like to keep hots rolling on the tank at all times, because it's cheaper to keep lifebloom going than to have to restack it every pull, and I'm lazy. A lot of warriors I have trouble with (I get aggro cause hots!), but the one I saw actually charge-rend-tclap had absolutely no problems holding threat off me at all times regardless of my hots.Frankly recently I've had soo many dks that don't know what DnD is (and one that thought they only needed to tank one mob out of a pack of 4) that I just heal anyone who has aggro, since at least it isn't me -_-And yes, I know that if I'm getting aggro I shouldn't put any hots until the tank (or everyone else) has threat, and if there are issues I switch to doing that.
