we will be • when you will be no more
oh god, you caught me.
except why assume the wording on the spell itself correct and only the glyph is misworded? there is equal chance of either one, except that the glyph's wording is far less open to interpretation than the spell's wording.
it's a functional taunt, it's been discussed to death that it is.
Yes, I've QQ'd about this quite often. It's ok though - Hpallys can still taunt /insert wtf jackiechan meme
And again, unglyphing it is not an option unless you know you'll need it before the fight, which means it's not you stepping in and "emergency tanking" until the real tank can be bressed.
It's not a huge deal, but the thing is that we had the taunt in MoP and some dev deliberately removed it, and that kinda sucks.
It's actually very annoying. Doing H: Amber Shaper (10 man), I am responsible for taunting the monstrosity right before he does the fling. This way I get picked up instead of the tank. With the CD on Death Grip, I have to use it exactly on CD (Fling usually has 3s~ when it comes up). Sure that alone isn't a huge problem, but it'd also be nice to be able to use my Death Grip to bring in oozes and kill them near the boss to make positioning better. But that's kind of just the start of hybrid utility that I feel DKs lack. After playing a warrior for so long and being able to taunt + shield wall and actually save attempts, then going to a DK and even with BP + IBF, I just get gibbed. Feels bad man.
Again not trying to say any of that stuff is really game breaking, just some quality of life things I suppose.
I hate it. It's senseless.
DGrip has so much real utility that saving it, or burning it, for the mundane purpose of taunting is really unpleasant. Not to mention that sometimes, what you want to taunt is NOT something you want to change the position of!
Honestly. When a damn Holy Paladin or macro-wielding Shaman can taunt more effectively than you as DK DPS, something is just not right. /angryfist
I miss it in pvp, was great for keeping focus target in combat, just macro in /cast [@focus]Dark Command into all your spam abilities but nope, no more of that now sadly.
It was a pvp nerf. That is the only reason, it had no effect on PvE at all. Smart DKs were doing things like taunting pets to break CC or take some pressure off healers. Taunt also worked as a ranged "keep in combat" that had no resource cost, small cooldown and was able to keep players from drinking effectively.
It has been years since wrath launch, but there are soooooooooo many players who are still butthurt over how OP DKs were then that we still continue to eat nerf after nerf. It is amazing how many players still don't understand basic mechanics of DKs and for some reason still think we are OP Gods from wrath.
But if it was to take taunts off DPS in PvP why did all the other DPS keep their taunt?
Druids, Ret/Holy Paladin, WW/Mist Monk, Arms/Fury Warrior ... desperate Shammy with a weapon macro :p
but with dps dks i think it might have been an oversight by blizzard
actually a taunt can be very helpful for certain situations, also, we off-tank the adds for heroic will, us 2 dks pickup the emperors strengths, we don't need to respec but there has been times another strength somes out before mine dies i dg him, and someone pulls more aggro than i can hold being in blood pres but not spec. im MS dps and both my specs are dps frost and unholy for elegon
Reading comprehension FTW.
