Reviving this thread. Using 2 rogue mercs now in gmm on burn. Just let them tank ftw.
The dps is crazy.
Boxing a cleric to keep shining aegis on the mercs and healing them helps lol.

I've had agro issues for 2 years now myself. Now it's only gotten worse. In a burn it's mostly bloodlust and DoT spells that makes agro go way overboard.
In missions when I burn I'm also generally the tank. It just works easier that way  :-P
I don't even have most of the ToV AAs yet. With the upgrades like gelid rending I expect it to only get worse.
On raids I chain FDs and the new FD is nice about 15 secs in a burn to really give the tank a head start. I still continue FDing even after that too though.
Paladins have a deagro buff..Marr's salvation iirc. It helps some.

As you get more DPS AAs are you finding that aggro is now an issue?  I have to plan on tanking or FD in 3-5 seconds after hitting my burn.  I am hitting BA + SF + BL + VV and I am using the ToV T3 group 1hb Velium Infused Battle Rod (18delay) MH with the TBL raid 1hb Rod of Effortless Might (24 delay) OH.  I am not even spamming DoTs.  Both weapons have 8dmg w/proc augs.  The main hand gets the Venomous Tear (Poison) and the off-hand gets the Frost Blossom (Disease).

I will be testing out swapping proc augs for the 14/15 dmg augs from ToV and see if it impacts the aggro generation significantly.

Grats on 110!!!  Start cranking those AAs and make sure you have the max AA banked and max quest rewards banked before the next expansion launches.

Since the nerf re-tuning, Grash is a bit of a mare.
In other news though, I have all but the Appointment Enforcer 1hb and the Phases ringm as I got the aug last night.

Huzzah! 110 club at last, just in the nick of time for 115 to come along.

Who would have guessed that I am having fun with the melee damage merc?  I did some parsing over the weekend with a WIZ merc head to head with a ROGUE merc.  The Rogue merc was easily 20K DPS ahead of the WIZ merc.  Since I 2 box a Bard it only gets better.  On balanced, I was seeing an average of close to 50K DPS from the Rogue merc with bursts into the 80K range.  I have been moloing in GMM instances with a rogue merc and just spot healing the pet as needed to level up the evolving gear.

Flipping darkness howls is a good way to get the augment too from the elusive named orc.

Most people run GMM (Darkness Howls Mission) because the mobs are so easy the kill rate is really high and.....wait for it...it is one of the only zones where the exp counts for evolving gear from TBL.  It is by far the easiest way to get exp for evolving items.  Most people already have all the gear from GMM or are raid geared so they just flip the mission without completing it for the exp.

3boxing this with Enc+Mag+BST.

Now I got the layout and the mob groups, it's a doddle, 60 minutes and done.
Had the glass shield and the gyroscope from Grash, and have nearly everything else from the chest for the Bst/enc. and still only 108. I guess clearing the whole zone helps a bit with exp? is it dungeon bonus?
