Hi,

When I pull with my Bonedancer (Bone Army), I have two possibilities:
1- instant debuff, then make the pet attack the mob, ...
2- instant lifedrain, then make the pet attack the mob, ...

what I noticed is that using #1 the mob is still aggro on me far more than using #2. For me, it sounds strange that a debuff brings more aggro than a damage.

is this normal, or should I open an issue in the tracker ?
Me!

It may be debuffs in general. I notice on my Sorc, whenever I debuff a mob, I get instant big agro from it.

If I DoT the mob, pet or player easily gets agro...So I think there is an issue with debuff mechanics.

Definitely an issue with debuff mechanics. Spec AF debuff on the Necro pulls an ungodly amount of aggro... although this is useful for peeling from healers, so keep that in mind!

thanks for your feedbacks, i'll check for existing similar issues in the tracker, and maybe raise a new one if needed.

Report the id when you open it. here seen the same issue in hib with multiple debuff pull methods (nearsight. Dps haste etc) usually easier just to use a lowlvl dd spell

i experience this too. I use debuff and mob is on me until my pet does about 15% damage.

you can always use a level 1 debuff. It works anyway: it's instant, it pulls, it consumes ONE point of power, and it will not be so difficult for the pet or other players to gain agro.
If you have the spare time, you could use a level 1 dd spell, which gains even lower agro (and does 2-3 damage in the meantime, hahah)

Try pulling with a lvl 1 dmg spell. Group gets aggro much more easy even when the smg spell hits. The problem is that debuffs seem to get way to much aggro then they should
