    I'm glad you defended yourself on this. And on the ui thing. Who cares about someone else's UI? If you like a UI..use it. If not...don't.

    I posted a funny in game picture a while ago and the first comment was criticizing my screen res. Then it quickly devolved into an argument about wow's graphics in general. Lotta misdirected nerd rage out there. Keep having fun and keep posting!

    i don't use defensive pets, do u mean it doesn't put u on top aggro? as in the target just attacks the pet, regardless of threat.
    I believe what he meant was that Pet taunts were made to be unusable on bosses, as part of the 3.1 patch:

    (From the 3.1 patch notes

    Taunts: All player or pet-generated taunts now have a shared diminish category. In addition, Taunt-type effects from pets and from classes other than death knight, druid, paladin, and warrior have been set such that bosses can be made immune to them while still affected by death knight, druid, paladin, and warrior taunts.

    That change was made presumably to prevent raid bosses from being tanked by pets, as well as allowing the use of Army of the Dead on raid bosses without the risk of wipes due to their previous behaviors of taunting on raid bosses, mainly ones with tail swipes or cleaves.

    Yes, I'm sure it would hurt if you'd have the ability to help out with a cure toxins when needed or just generally being more aware to what's happening to your raid. But at least you don't have to clutter your UI up with crap like that - leaves more room for your recount so you can make yourself feel better.

    Oh and don't let me get started on the usefulness of PARTY FRAMES in a raid (you know x-perl allows you to disable these automatically in favour of raid frames when you join a raid group right?)

    Wrong, that means that non tank class taunts will not override a tank class taunt while the mob in question is under the taunts effect.

    A pet can still taunt off a normal tank.

    I don't know if you'll read this OP but I think the video was really cool and it just shows that some people are about having fun with the game, not about min/max epeen stroking. Anyways TotT doesn't work on hunter pets, but if you put TotT on the hunter, tranfersing some rogue threat to the hunter, then using MD, would that transfer rogue threat to hunter then to pet? If that makes sense... Lots of transfers of threat I know.

    Pretty neat and grats to a cool kill for some fun.

    For those people waxing on hate about a worthless kill, just chill people, these people are just wanting to show what they did that isn't of the normal. Yes, this type of thing has been done (pet tanking boss to be clear on the point) but it's still not quite an easy feat. Yes, it would be amazing if it led into a hardmode kill with a hunter pet leading the tanking force for it but is still no reason to drag this down.

    Again, grats on Bubbles big steps to tanking Ulduar. I hope that he did well later on for the instance for the night.

    I had planned on not posting in this thread, but I thought I'd clear up a little confusion.

    The talented Tenacity pet taunt does work as a fully functional taunt in most circumstances. However, since the patch that introduced the diminishing returns on taunt and made DK/Druid/Pally/Warrior taunts override all others, raid bosses have been immune to the talented pet taunt.

    You should have entitled this...

    My god, how do you even see the freaking screen with that UI.
    I used to be hardcore, then I discovered how fun it is to get laid on an almost daily basis. I'll take sex over WoW any day, so now I'm casual.
