Ability threat ammounts?

Anyone know how much threat juggernaut abilities produce? Apart from backhand i don't see any abilities that generate extra threat? I sometimez tank with group members who are several levels higher so keeping agro can be an issue. Knowing which skills produce more threat would help.

Dont think anyone knows yet.

But as the tank stance makes your damage abilities do more threat anyway, damage = threat.

Ah ok no problem. Just wasn't sure. most other tanks i have played usually have a particular ability that is good for causing threat, like amethyst slash in daoc or sunder armor in wow. May not be one in Tor but thought i would see .

Somewhere I read that sunder armor generates a lot of threat...but maybe that was someone talking out their ***.

your highest damage skills do the most amount of threat. You really have to be on point, and losing aggro is a flaw of the class. For example, while raiding, I always lose aggro at the start of the fight, and need to cycle between my taunts to keep the boss on me. After keeping the boss on me with a combo of single target taunt > aoe taunt > single target taunt I don't have trouble with threat anymore, because the initial burst a lot of the dps classes can do has leveled off.

A great way to get threat on single target is: Saber throw > jump > backhand > force scream >crushing blow > ravage.

Pop retaliation in there if it procs.
