Possible CC tweaks

Hello!

Consider a mob in a CC state. Should agro/threat from heals affect it? It would appear that currently threat is generated from heals even though the mob is catatonic. IMO, if a mob is CC'd threat from heals should be nil.

Question related to above. Can tanks 'pre-load' threat on CC'd mobs through non-damaging means such as provoke without breaking CC?

Cheers,
Skeezix

Yes, you can 'pre-load' threat on CC'd mob with provoke and roar like abilities with out breaking CC.

It's kind of a double edged sword here. Tanks want to be able to build up aggro on CC'd mobs (because the CC itself generates a large amount of threat) but supporters likely don't. At the end of the day I'm not really a fan of changing the "rules" of how the game works in different situations like this so it will likely remain as-is unless we find it to be a serious issue.

Or a reagent for the cc ability in question that can lower the threat a tad to alleviate the issue without totally wiping out threat gen from cc.

Reagents for you and you and you and you!

I think truly stunned mobs who are out of commission shouldn't build agro on anybody. They are out of it, how do they know who to be angry with besides the last thing they saw before getting stunned. However, if they are simply rooted, yes, agro should build normally which means if they see me healing, I build agro
