Tips and tactics

  • This is a good way to make sure the mob is always attacking your pet if used liberally.
  • This can help you grab aggro off of another player if you need to
  • Stuns target, especially useful in PvP. In PvE, when applied at the right time, can help a player tank regain aggro. This is especially true when an enemy switches target to the hunter, another ranged dps, or the healer. A quick intimidation will not only switch the target of the enemy to the pet, but also keep the enemy close to the tank to regain aggro.


  • The threat value is 580.
