You might be right yeah thanks for the tip. Thought it works when I tested it, I cannot see any update.

Hopefully in the coming weeks, Omen or KLH will be updated. If not then ClassicThreatMeter it will be. I'll keep an eye on it and update the Thread accordingly ;-)

Deen, this is amazing. I know for a fact I would not have been ready for launch without this. Thanks to you I can look forward to a complete mess of action bars and begging notes from addon developers, and not being able to play the game until I have figured out the rubik puzzle on the screen while my character goes AFK, and finally logs out which I will be powerless to prevent.

Remember to update your addons. Several have received new versions since the stress test.

"A good habit to take from the start is to always wait a few seconds for the MT to build some aggro before starting the DPS, whether in dungeon or raid."

What we used to do in classic was wait for the MT to have atleast 5 sunders in before starting dps.

i sure hope Grid is gonna be available, not a fan of the default frames.

Not to nick pick...but for dungeons usually 2 sunders is ok. 3 if you wish it account for a POM Pyro blast or expect someone to do some massive crits in quick succession...or if the tank is 3 levels below the DPS!

Otherwise the premise is exactly correct. Classic is about threat management! Not about topping DPS charts.

Hunter's weaving MD into their rotations as well for the first minute or so.

Sorry for the confusion, you mentioned dungeons thats why.

Misquote must be my fault! Don't know how that happened!
