Power word shield and threat
Return to board index
Sincerely, it does not. Healing threat exists. There are just two things to consider:
1) Healing theat is 1/2 of the healing done, whereas DPS threat is 100% of the damage done, so it is easier to hold aggro against a healer than a dps;
2) Healng threat is spread between all the enemies, making it even easier to hold aggro against.
But healing threat is not inexistant. There is no way I can hold aggro against a healer on a single mob by auto-swings only if you spam me with greater heals, each healing me for, say, 10k, which will generate 5k threat. My auto-swings do not hit for 2k, you know.
What Ethix (and me earlier) meant was that healing threat is small problem. You only got troubles with threat and healers during a pull or when adds come mid fight. And even then a taunt/AoE attack can get the mobs to the tank in no time. And because a smart healer always stands behind the tank the mobs will walk over the tank to get the healer.
And if tank fails (or does not see) use fade.
3) Overhealing doesn't make threat.
And from the PWS page on wowwiki:
Casting it before combat does not cause any threat and reduces the time until the target can be shielded again.
