That's just personal preference, of course, and other folks can and do use other setups and do fine.
You can look at the abilities window or another hotkey for reference if the button is greyed out, but yeah I get that.

So besides spamming the taunt button, was there any consensus on what spells the SK should use to keep aggro? Seems like they all suck now.

So, are they going to fix disease cloud?

Who am I kidding? They're not even making a new server. Of course it won't be fixed...

Doesn’t matter if they do or not, tbh it hurt warriors more as it limited their proc weapon choices.

Do you see a difference in aggro between clinging and SV and spells of that nature? Per a poster there should be no difference. It would be nice for mana savings and since sticking snare on stuff at a point is almost impossible.

Agreed. I haven't missed DC too much. I have flowing thought items, clickies, and a big enough mana pool. The 20 mana cost of Clinging isn't the end of the world in the endgame, especially if you have C2.

It hurts lower level SK's more, since saving mana is harder without good gear and clickies.

I haven't tested it enough to give a definitive answer. Clinging does flip mobs back to me, so it's working for sure. I don't remember needing to switch to Shadow Vortex or Shroud of Pain consistently to get agro back. I'll cast those spells if I want to get agro back faster and not have to wait for clinging to pop back up. Or if I want to gain agro on something without applying a DoT, like on mezed mobs.

Idk since I cast only 2 clinging in most teams less someone is super anxious to rip aggro. I don’t have issues and if it’s a longer harder mob I usually have mana for the other stuff cause buffs.

Edit I also have tuna sword tho so I get root proc and good white dmg.

I spam taunt tanking all the time, also spam clinging darkness / shadow vortex. With Narandi / Potg / C2 I never run outta mana and the only time i lose aggro is to someone's low health. Spamming taunt, while unnecessary maybe, gives me something to push. Who cares dudes, Just spam or don't spam away
