Nordh’s recent word of his pet tanking addon work in progress got me thinking about properly calculating pet threat again. Trying to gather accurate threat data has been a nightmare for myself and others. For a brief moment we had a glimpse of hope with the release of training dummies, but unfortunately they don’t track threat.
So today, after half a year of staring me in the face, it finally occurred to me “Why not test threat the same way that we hunters tested our DPS for all of The Burning Crusade?” So off to Netherstorm I fly, to revisit every hunter’s favorite punching bag.
I’m still in the process of collecting data and napkin math, but hopefully I’ll be back soon with a working model for Growl, shortly followed by a another formula for the Thunderstomp threat.
