One word: Taunt. If that isn't on his toolbar, it should be. Taunt requires that he be in Defensive Stance (I think), so he can either click the stance bar first or set up a fairly simple macro. Taunt forces the mob to attack him for a few seconds and gives him the same threat as the mob's previous target. At level 61, there shouldn't be any taunt-immune mobs.

Intervene is an ability that will temporarily redirect a single attack without pulling aggro, but I don't know what level it's acquired at.

If he doesn't want to taunt, but wants to pull aggro from the tank through threat generation, liberal use of Heroic Strike and Mocking Blow (in Battle Stance?) may do the trick. However, he has to exceed the threat of the mob's current target by 10% in order to pull. If he wants to play the game this way, have him install a threat meter such as Omen (in fact, all players should get this tool if they ever plan on grouping).

If he wants a comprehensive guide to playing a Warrior, have him delve through the information on .

Thanks Lealla I'll point him in that direction, I tend not to use wowwike as I don't like the hunter stuff in there but other class info might be more in depth. I was just explaining UI's to him he didn't realize you could change how his UI was laid out. How do you warriors lay yours out? Any add-ons that you feel are helpful?

You would want to pull aggro off the tank?

But like Lealla said, he can switch to defensive stance and taunt (yes you must be in defensive stance to taunt). Or in battle stance use mocking blow (forces the target to attack you for 6 seconds). But if you wanna tell him this, you might want to also tell him that taunting mobs or forcing them to attack him will not end well if he doesn't have a shield and stay in or get to defensive stance. Getting to defensive stance will also increase his threat gen so the mob will stick to him.

Anyways... Do what Lealla said and let him do some reading up on tankage and other warrior mechanics.
Shhh! Theres a dead horde in my trunk. Wanna see it? Fuck around and you'll be it.

Yes, the primary question is why he'd want to pull from the tank. Generally this is regarded as a bad idea. The tank's job is to keep things from hitting other people. The healer's job is to keep the tank alive. Taunt/Mocking Blow should be reserved for the situation where a mob breaks loose from the tank and the tank is unable to pick it up immediately, but if you use either one, be prepared to get smooshed unless you quickly put on a shield and go to Defensive Stance.

It was one of the boss's in HH he was trying to OT the rider while the tank tanked the mount or something I forget the fight. I gave him the wiki page and he's been reading it all morning, doing the WOW wish I had known that thing. He was wearing a pali chest from lvl 50 so think I finally got his itemization right. Thanks for the help though guy's :)

Yeah, pulling ain't too hard, especially if he doesn't have Salvation. Other high threat moves include Heroic Strike, which can be liberally used if you have the rage, because it is off the global cooldown. :)
