I did notice a significant boost to my threat when I went from a Rakata hilt to a Campaign. It was just vastly easier to keep agro off of the DPS. With that said, Kitru's advice is correct. Unlike DPS, who *need* to do the maximum damage possible, tanks have other options. Taunt boosting basically trivializes the threat mechanic, so it doesn't matter how much damage you do as a tank. For this reason, my guild gives main hands to the DPS first, then the healers, with the tanks getting it last.
