Randomly unable to hold threat.

15 posts in this topic

I'm not looking for a solution since just dying seems to make the effect go away. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

 

Sometimes, I'll go into a raid or CM and just be completely inacapable of holding or generating any threat. Mobs end up switching targets after a few seconds with nothing wrong on my part. Simply dying makes this effect go away completely.

 

Is this a known bug or am I just imagining this?

Definitely not a known bug. If you provide some logs, I can help you sort out what's happening with your threat.

Haven't played my warrior in a serious environment yet and this comes up very rarely. I'll most likely not be able to provide logs any time soon but I'll keep you posted if I catch it.

I kid, I kid, lol. I'm only now starting to build a tanking set. I haven't gotten to use it but I have used Defensive Stance as a Fury Warrior!

You could run logs for yourself for an LFR or flex run and that would be enough to give a pretty good approximation.

The issue manifests very infrequently. Running raids repeatedly until it happens really isn't a reasonable way to reproduce it. Regardless, I'll start logging everything my warrior does starting from next reset in hopes of catching it.

You probably won't have to catch it on logs. I want to see what you're doing in order to see where the problem is stemming.

The problem isn't stemming from anywhere playstyle-related. I'm literally doing the exact same things that I normally do. The only difference is that I fail to generate any threat.

It may be that your threat generation isn't as good as it could be and the reason you seem to not be generating threat sporadically is due to groups that are able to generate more threat than you are. If that's the case, then your logs will show. If it's not the case, it can be counted out.

I've actually experienced this on my warrior and I think I have an inkling as to where the problem is stemming from.

 

Do you by chance use the glyph of the subtle defender in your dps/off spec by chance?

That would be a possibility, but he states his issue goes away after dying, so I doubt it's a glyph problem. Something to check, though.

I've swapped from fury (with the glyph) to prot (without it) and swore up and down that defensive stance was doing nothing in terms of threat gen.  I'm not sure if I hit defensive stance while still in fury spec in this case but it's possible.  Since I've suspected this to be an issue for some time now I switched to battle, then back to D stance and it seemed to have fixed the problem.

Are you using ELvUI ? I'm and I get this when, I swap from protection to arms, Happens every now and then. So lets say Im tanking then change to dps, I was in Defensive stance before I changed role but now, I'm arms and in Defensive stance So I will change to Battle stance. So now I need to tank, Changed role to Protection but I'm in Battle stance so I change to Defensive stance.. No threat No idea why taunt will not work not a thing. The fix I have found is, Switch stance from Battle to Berserker to Defensive just like Akudama said above. Have no idea if it's a UI problem a me being a tard or what but just happens. I taunted iron Jugg 19 times once, Never got aggro for a second, I guess 19 taunts has some sort of diminishing returns. I think I have logs will check and update if I do.

ive had this same problem. i find it happens when i switch specs mostly but it could just be stances. i find the easiest way to fix is to simpy /reload which always seems to fix it instantly

 

edit: since i noticed it ive suspected it was due to the subtle defendor glyph that i use in my fury spec. it seems a major problem with an easy fix. just /reload all the time lol 

ps i swear ive had it start randomly when i havent switched so it may be worse then we think
