Suggestion: Threat lowering ablities useful in PvP

I got an idea what about make those threat lowering ablities useful in pvp?

It would be simple, when you press it, all enemies who are targeting you would get target cleared so they would have to target you again.
Would give you one or two global cds of time to do... anything... I can imagine it would be cool small aid for escaping.

What do you think?

They only have to press tab to target you again, so pretty useless.

Absolutely agreed. Warriors/Knights already get some use out of their threat drop (Focused Defense and Force Camo for Guardians and Sents respectively).

Something as simple as what you suggest would be great. Especially for Commandos/Mercs.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

That would be a dream come true if tab targeting actually worked when you wanted it to.

Yes lets make it so when you use threat drop it makes pyrotechs and smashers target someone else

That would be pretty cool. I'd support this.

GO PVP more and when a marauder/sentinel kills you first because you lost your target to execute and he still has his.....come back and post again.....?

Some of those abilities weren't supposed to be abused in pvp as they are. They were for pve purposes but when they show up in pvp, its like W T F do they need that with all the other defensive CD's they have.

the commando one has a natural affinity for reducing accuracy (ala pacify). it pops up like 4 or 5 copies of the commando to confuse the attacker. that would be a perfect sentinal pacify type abil. gawd knows commando dps need help.
