Hi guys (and girls),

I am hoping you guys can help me out regarding a couple of our AA's skills.

1) Convergence of Spirits

I normally save this for an emergency when the tank needs a fast heal but I am wondering if anyone knows how it affects the tanks ability to keep agro. I mean the description says that it "leaves the target with protective thorns". Does that mean that it will reduce the tanks agro? (and head to you!)

2) Wrath of the Wild

When I first got this ability I simply used it on the tank as a way of adding an extra bit of dps to the group. I now cast it on the puller just after the tank engages the mob. I have found that this helps take agro from the puller. Is that the way most people use this AA or are there other strategies that you guys use?

As always your opinions are most welcome.....

I don't have the convergence AA's yet, but I use the Wrath of the Wild quite a bit. I either use it for extra DPS in groups or when I solo then I let myself take a hit. I usually use it to finish off mobs when I solo, usually in Vxed.

As far as I know the dmg shields doesn't have any agro, but I could be wrong.

Convergence of Spirits ( and Wrath of the Wild ( do not decrease hate.

Wrath of the Wild on the MA, using it on the puller can create a summoning situation if the DS drops the mob to 97 or below in health.

I tend to use CoS as either a quick direct heal on a secondary group member, me after I cast Oaken Guard, or on the MA after a Direct Heal.

When used on the MA, you can cast SI, CoS, and then SI again and you pick up an extra 2k direct in healing and 3k in HoT.

If you're getting agro from Convergence it might just be from the instant heal. Using it very early in a fight could pull agro, though I've never noticed it.

Wrath definately shouldn't make any changes to a group's agro. If anything you might generate a tiny bit of agro yourself if you cast it midfight due to the 1 pt rune.

I think our only direct agro mod-spell is Oaken Guard which can lower your hate on mobs swinging at you.

I use CoS when farming and PL'n! Pull all spiders in velks, pop it + shammy DS + all buffs is GREAT!

But otherwise I save it for emergency heals, like my healing hammer and mask.
