It's the thought that counts, not how many people die because of it.

Allow me to insert my 2 copper pieces here: does the damage reduction effect from Vigilance stack with the one from Blessing of Sanctuary? I'm pretty sure it does not.

Anyway, while this is certainly an interesting bit of theorycraft, I have a feeling that it's going to be far too situational to really be considered an exploit. How many bosses:

a) Have DPS mechanics such that diverting a portion of their damage output would significantly improve tank survival.
b) Do not have mechanics that would render this technique suicidal, such as cleaves, breaths, hatefuls, etc.
c) Are not so threat sensitive that DPS would risk pulling from the tanks.
d) Are tauntable.

Now, it's certainly possible that Blizzard could introduce a boss that requires bouncing taunts to defeat. That would be very interesting. I envision something along the line of the "Fist of Stone" buff cast by some mobs that increases their damage but reduces their movement speed. Combine this with an unbreakable snare and you set the stage for a taunt bounce fight.

1st boss in spider wing ?

A. tauntable.
B. has an ablity that makes the tank run and kite.
C. Could be simply taunted by a tank at max range. (even if 2nd tanks still has to kite some, they have a nice lead)


Not that we have any problems with this boss, and it isn't exactly bouncing, but still kind of the same thing.

I'm talking about a boss where the difference between a 20 yard and 30 yard taunt actually makes a useful difference. The range on Locust Swarm is 30 yards, so the increased taunt distance would have no effect on that encounter whatsoever.
