    (Incidentally, this is the reason that charge+growl isn't matching up, hunters)


    Looking forward to the fix. :) Thanks for looking into it.

    I haven't found any good sources on the threat generated by pet abilities, but I think that there are still serious lacks here in an otherwise great threat addon. Like I noted before, the boar's charge seems way off.

    I'm level 70 with about 20% Karazhan level gear, BM specced and using the ez-mode high dps macro. :) I can send my boar in with charge, gore, bite and growl active and unload right away or even just before he gets there and still not pull aggro on most regular mobs.

    My boar has charge lvl 8, but when it goes in with it, it still only generates the standard 150-180 aggro, according to Omen/Threat. When the mobs I'm testing on right now go down (boars in SMV), the meters report me at 3-400% threat without any sign of the mob targeting me instead.

    If there is a simple way for me to try to figure out the actual aggro generation from the charge, I'd be happy to do it, but right now I've only got Threat for reference. I could reactivate KTM and see which values it reports, but it's hard to get reliable values during combat.

    I spent a good while testing this last night, and I cannot reliably get Charge to produce said amount of threat. I was engaging a mob, meleeing it for ~500, having the boar charge, and aggro remained on me. I need to do a lot more testing on it.


    Hmm... maybe my numbers are wrong then, but I think that's how KTM report them. And it's always seemed to work when I use my pet as my tank while grinding. Are you using rank 5 of charge?

    The other thing that suddenly occurred to me, is that maybe my pet is blowing all its cooldowns right away (not sure if they have their own global cooldown), so it could be the result of charge, gore and bite. Either way, when I have my boar charge in, I will be listed way above it in aggro for quite some time before a mob turns its attention to me, so something isn't being added up right.

    According to this guide, http://www.bookofwarcraft.com/guides/class/hunter/pet-skills.htm, the level 5 boar charge has an attack power of 390. Not sure if that helps. I guess the threat has to be worked out for each rank of charge and so on.

    With the current version (39341), it seems that Threat isn't registering aggro for the Boar Charge ability for the boar hunter's pets. The funny thing is, I could swear it was a few days ago, but while testing today it wasn't registering. I'm using Omen as the front end, and I don't know how the communication works between them and whether it could just be an Omen display error. But anyway, I figured I'd note it so it could be checked.

    I'm unsure off-hand exactly how much aggro it generates (in the 3.5-4k range), but it's very significant, so it's handy to have that handled when using a pet tank. Thanks!

    Great job so far! I can't wait until I can feel safe in ditching KTM and going with a lightweight Ace2 solution. :)
