I know that the AoED power's extra crit damage (the Ebon Lightning strikes) used to count threat to the AoED user, and that this was changed a while back to have that threat count to the attacker who triggered the damage.
I suspect something recently reverted that change. Last night when I was playing my pet master build (who has AoED), I was aggro-ing threat from the whole room full of baddies the moment I stepped into the room after teammates already started the fight. I didn't even fire off a healing or damaging power and a dozen mobs were dog-piling me.
Can somebody verify that something did indeed change and that it's not just my imagination?
