As someone who hadn't raid tanked seriously since BC or early Wrath, when I was asked to step up as temporary off tank in my ten man, Vengeance was a huge issue on any fight with with tank swapping, IE, everything. Since I learned tanking in the MAX THREAT AT ALL TIMES mode, I was hitting my rotation like clockwork, hitting DPS cooldowns every time they were up, and still probably gearing more for threat than a serious tank would. They way I saw it, if my survivability wasn't immediately in danger, my job was to provide as generous a threat ceiling as possible. All of that meant that it was hard to taunt off of me and I several times pulled threat off the other tank through what I considered my normal tanking rotation. Now I did, eventually, unlearn a lot of those habits (and start Salving myself when she taunted), but it was definitely an issue.Vengeance, in my opinion, makes tanks lazy. Maybe it'll be different when MoP's new tanking paradigm is in place, but we're not there yet.
