    Prot AOE threat

    I saw something in the past about a potential buff to our consecration but I can't find it anywhere or remember the specifics. Was this going to be implemented in 5.2 to help with our piss poor AOE threat or were there other updates that I seem to have missed?

    It was a buff in low vengeance numbers, but a nerf when we obtain decent amounts of vengeance.

    What you're looking for is this:

    Like said above, it helps in low vengeance values but ends up being a nerf in higher amounts. I kind of like since it does help with the initial aggro in bosses like wind lord and my damage is so high in those kinds of fight that I really can't argue against a nerf, specially such a minor one.

    Yeah, that's what it was. Did they ever announce whether they were looking into prot pala aoe threat? Single target is fine and doesn't need to be touched. AOE threat is garbage. I could easily have a druid or monk tank rip threat off without much effort.

    Only change or mention so far, regarding Prot. Our AoE threat is real shit when in low vengeance, but this might help a bit.
