One of my main raiding characters in classic was an SK. No one was taking aggro from me while spamming disease cloud, votex, and clinging darkness. It was pretty normal for me to take aggro until slow landed to try to mitigate the amount of enchanter/shaman deaths while debuffing is going on,

Its not as good as it was but spamming Disease Cloud is still a very low mana high agro spell (for SK anyhow). I have noticed a change but its not game breaking, at least for me.

+1 to proc agro being terribly inconsistent, as a Paladin you will not be satisfied.

I haven't had any big issues with Flame Lick... there may have been a few times I was surprised someone took aggro and i had to recast, but I can't tell if it was due to the change or because i am more sensitive to it happening after I read the patch notes.

Low level agro for my new pal/sk (flash and disease) seem lacking, like I lose the attention of some mobs now at 30-40% with uber twinks in the group. but my higher level pal/sk with vortex/stun? forget about it.

flame lick still cool

Just recast DC a second time... Then at higher level some more... On raid I just keep casting it, never had agro issues like that... If you are a bit mana challenged? Just keep using DC and don't use anything else...

Disease cloud use to be bugged to agro higher than it should. Eq live took like 4 years to fix not sure if it was remedied on P99. It’s the goto spell to get the mob turned on you. Keep taunt maxed and spam. Also helps to have a proc on 1h weapon too. Next best thing to get hate is to fear them but no one likes that in group play.

The best agro is white damage with a couple of spells on top. I know everyone thinks Knights do terrible DPS but on my raid geared 59 SK I feel her DPS is quite respectable. As a consequence its much easier keeping agro using my 1:1 ratio weapon vs the shit I had before.
