Here's another post about the ridiculous threat system Ok so as a Paladin main we literally have a mechanic that increases threat, it gives no percentage, no proc condition just say increases threat generation, that is not something that can be turned off.
aside from that certain encounters and at-wills state, increased threat generation, does not state amounts.
And than you have a class feature which increases or decreases threat this has a percentage and is the only point as a Paladin interms of abilities where percentage is mentioned.
Next for threat generation is the ring of the condemned which also doesn't state any amount just says generate threat around you when you have been running for 1 second no mention of stacking or anything either.
Now we have the jewel of the north set which states 15% threat generation, but doesn't state a proc condition.
Soo here is the crux of the matter, 15% of what? When? Where does neverwinter provide this information for tanks to properly control threat? How are we meant to realistically test these things when there is other variables to consider? How much threat does any and all heals generate or any and all attacks for the DPS and healers?
the information that is available is so vague and mostly not even provided by the Devs but players trying to work it out themselves, and even than it can be difficult to find, not only good info but up to date info about a vital core mechanic.
So again finally it's hard to judge weather anything and everything that states increased threat generation works and if it states percentage it's difficult to understand what that even means when we can't see these actual numbers anywhere.
The only thing I can say I know for certain works is the ring and hard taunt abilities that instantly put you at the top of the threat list, even than I couldn't tell you the effectiveness of the ring I can just say it appears to do as it says.
Moreover if you start the game as a tank there is nothing that teaches you about threat at all again this is the core mechanic for tanks and we do not get any help working it out other than from other players, everyone gets taught about combat advantage but no one is taught about threat, I have seen so many tanks who do not have any understanding of the threat system and not just new players but yes new players will struggle the most performing their role as a tank.
I can't emphasize enough the ridiculousness of haveing a core mechanic for the past 7 years that is as vague as the threat system, literally all we have is a tiny little box with a traffic light system to judge threat with which doesn't apply to every monster around just the ones you have managed to pull.
Ways to rectify this issue could be add a threat stat to the stat page, make it more clear how much threat is generated by things that say increase threat generation, give us some solid numbers to work with, make the combat log a group combat log so tanks can see how much threat everyone is generating, and add a monster counter next to the treat bar so the tank can have at least a rough Idea of how many enemies are focused on him and how many enemies are focused on someone else.
I'll add that without some actual solid numbers as tanks we can't even say what is the best way to focus and balance treat generation or for us to balance offense stats and damage to prevent DPS and healers grabbing the aggro.
I expect as always the Devs will remain silent about this glaring issue. But seriously it's ridiculous that this hasn't already been sorted out across all these years.
It would be nice to hear some sort of response guys something to say you have seen our issue, or some answer to these problems, I know your busy with all the new mods and character reworks but this is a major system concerning an entire class role, might want to fix this before reworking character, but I don't know what do you think @cryptic39#8917 @nitocris83
