So, with the removal of the extra threat flavor in our abilities, is there a different way to open on single target? I used to FF, Mang, Maul and stack Lac- should that change?

I usually use Mangle Maul Lacerate and fit in FFF when i feel i have enough threat however if I Charge I will dump FFF as I'm getting to the targert but apart from that it's exactly the same not noticed that I have had a reduction in the threat that I am generating

In fact I'm loving the changes to be honest the extra threat mechanic should be removed from every class imho and just adjust the abilities that are used to tank to compensate however I dorealise that this will have an adverse effect on the PvP world but honestly who cares about that :-P

Thrash is actually enough damage/threat to put into single-target rotation, if there's 3 stacks of Lacerate. I'm not sure if it's damage was boosted higher than the threat lost or it's always been that way and we just couldn't tell.

Please pardon the ego, it keeps getting stuck in doorways. I'm working on it.

I Enrage first then pull with some combo of charge and FFF. Then Mangle/Maul and get a Lacerate up followed by Thrash then Demo. Lacerate is still the filler and Mangle and Thrash should be on CD along with Maul as rage allows. I try and use Pulverize after a Thrash to ensure there is a bleed up at all times. I'll try and pop Enrage before Berserk for the extra damage as well, shit I keep Enrage close to on CD as well now as 15% more damage is fun.

Since the patch I've respec'd out of FA and Imp Charge to grab KotJ. So FFF doesn't start at 3 stacks but it does more damage now so is worth using 3 times to fully stack it up.
