I see alot of people talking about how Blizzard wants Tanking to be hard(ish) with threat being not so easy to maintain, but I've never found a source for a quote regarding this. Does anyone have one?
I just find it strange that it seems many DPS classes were buffed substantially, and continue to be buffed (like Mages for the last 2 PTRs), while threat is apparently remarkably easy to lose. I ran with a premade Mage in a random earlier today who, even with a solid grip on what I need to do now to maintain threat, was nearly impossible to tank for as he continually pulled off of me. Is this the intended direction of Cataclysm tanking?
