<DIV>I noticed last night, that i seem to draw aggro almost every fight...  I'm not talking from mez, I mean as soon as mobs are pulled they head straight for me...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>At the time, i had breeze on the Healer, and tank, recklessness, Magi shielding, Power of coercion, and that other one we get... I used to be able to have 4 breezes and 4 buffs, plus recklessness and never draw anything</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>never cast a mez, or damage, and would pull my staff as soon as tank pulled mobs...  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>anyone else having this?</DIV>

<DIV>This is caused by the massive agro that is produced from........... breeze.  Yup breeze.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Nothing we can do about it but pray for a good tank that knows his AoE taunts.</DIV>

<DIV>I had this problem in a couple groups too at first.   I figured it was breeze/haste agro and let it go at that.  But a couple groups later I wasn't having this problem at all. The difference in the groups was earlier I had a paladin as MT, but with a guardian I had no problem at all.  Perhaps it had to do with the tank's skill with taunt and pulls, but I'm not positive.  Maybe it was a problem with paladins holding agro.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

I've had good luck with both guardian types/paladin types and bad luck. I think it just depends on who is playing the tank. I suspect if you are getting wacked up front that the tank isn't taunting enough or properly (if there is a technique to it).

<DIV>It solely depends on how the enemies are being pulled.  From what I've seen, paladins like to pull from a distance with a spell, which will cause agro on one target of a group but not the rest, leaving them to swarm the enchanter if the paladin currently has Breeze (and paladins gobble mana up at a rate that they need it).  Guardians usually pull either with an arrow or with Taunt/Shout.  Arrow pulls will often give you agro, but if they pull with their AE Taunt, then you're set and safe.  The Breeze agro is minimal, but if the puller does nothing to offset it, it will draw creatures onto you.  Talk to your puller and explain the situation, and if it's really bad and they won't do anything to change it, turn their Breeze off.  Then the problem will go away.</DIV>
