Omen Threat Meter

English: |cffffd200Can we get AoE mode back?|r

Again, this is not really possible without guessing threat values. Blizzard's threat API only allows us to query for threat data on units that somebody in the raid is targetting. This means that if there are 20 mobs and only 6 of them are targetted by the raid, there is no way to obtain accurate threat data on the other 14.

This is also extremely complicated to guess particularly for healing and buffing (threat gets divided by the number of mobs you are in combat with) because mobs that are under crowd control effects (sheep, banish, sap, etc) do not have their threat table modified and addons cannot reliably tell how many mobs you are in combat with. Omen2's guess was almost always wrong.

|cffffd200The tooltips on unit mouseover shows a threat % that does not match the threat % reported by Omen3. Why?|r

Blizzard's threat percentage is scaled to between 0% and 100%, so that you will always pull aggro at 100%. Omen reports the raw unscaled values which has pulling aggro percentages at 110% while in melee range and 130% otherwise.

By universal agreement, the primary target of a mob is called the tank and is defined to be at 100% threat.

|cffffd200Does Omen3 sync or parse the combat log?|r

No. Omen3 does not attempt to sync or parse the combat log. Currently there are no intentions to do so.

|cffffd200The threat updates are slow...|r

Omen3 updates the threat values you see as often as Blizzard updates the threat values to us.

In fact, Blizzard updates them about once per second, which is much faster than what Omen2 used to sync updates. In Omen2, you only transmitted your threat to the rest of the raid once every 3 seconds (or 1.5s if you were a tank).

|cffffd200Where can I report bugs or give suggestions?|r

Xinhuan (Blackrock/Barthilas US Alliance) did.

Tells Omen to skip enemy player pets when determining which unit to display threat data on.

Player pets maintain a threat table when in |cffffff78Aggressive|r or |cffffff78Defensive|r mode and behave just like normal mobs, attacking the target with the highest threat. If the pet is instructed to attack a specific target, the pet still maintains the threat table, but sticks on the assigned target which by definition has 100% threat. Player pets can be taunted to force them to attack you.

However, player pets on |cffffff78Passive|r mode do not have a threat table, and taunt does not work on them. They only attack their assigned target when instructed and do so without any threat table.

When a player pet is instructed to |cffffff78Follow|r, the pet's threat table is wiped immediately and stops attacking, although it may immediately reacquire a target based on its Aggressive/Defensive mode.

English: The following data is obtained from |cffffd200|r on 2nd Oct 2008 (credits to Satrina). The numbers are for a level 80.

Battle Stance ________ x 80
Berserker Stance _____ x 80
Tactical Mastery _____ x 121/142/163
Defensive Stance _____ x 207.35

Note that in our original threat estimations (that we use now in WoW 2.0), we equated 1 damage to 1 threat, and used 1.495 to represent the stance+defiance multiplier. We see that Blizzard's method is to use the multiplier without decimals, so in 2.x it would've been x149 (maybe x149.5); it is x207 (maybe 207.3) in 3.0. I expect that this is to allow the transport of integer values instead of decimal values across the Internet for efficiency. It appears that threat values are multiplied by 207.35 at the server, then rounded.

If you still want to use the 1 damage = 1 threat method, the stance modifiers are 0.8 and 2.0735, etc.

|cffffd200Threat Values  (stance modifiers apply unless otherwise noted):|r
Battle Shout _________ 78 (split)
Cleave _______________ damage + 225 (split)
Commanding Shout _____ 80 (split)
Concussion Blow ______ damage only
Damage Shield ________ damage only
Demoralising Shout ___ 63 (split)
Devastate ____________ damage + 5% of AP *** Needs re-checking for 8982 **
Dodge/Parry/Block_____ 1 (in defensive stance with Improved Defensive Stance only)
Heroic Strike ________ damage + 259
Heroic Throw _________ 1.50 x damage
Rage Gain ____________ 5 (stance modifier is not applied)
Rend _________________ damage only
Revenge ______________ damage + 121
Shield Bash __________ 36
Shield Slam __________ damage + 770
Shockwave ____________ damage only
Slam _________________ damage + 140
Spell Reflect ________ damage only (only for spells aimed at you)
Social Aggro _________ 0
Sunder Armour ________ 345 + 5%AP
Thunder Clap _________ 1.85 x damage
Vigilance ____________ 10% of target's generated threat (stance modifier is not applied)

You do not gain threat for reflecting spells targetted at allies with Improved Spell Reflect. When you reflect a spell for an ally, your ally gains the threat for the damage dealt by the reflected spell.
