Hello there, every other source I've read states that mana spring totem does not give any threat, am I missing anything here?
Unless it got silently changed in the last few weeks. You can only get threat from your own Mana Spring Totem.
How would it be supposed to work? I did the following test:
Emptied my mana by self healing
Body pulled a low level mob
Placed mana totem (more than one actually)
asked a priest to punch the mob
The priest actually missed the mob (!) and still got aggro!

The threat generated by Mana is half of the amount, so it would be quite low.
I will re-test this and get back to you.
If you have any other questions regarding the guide, feel free to ask.

Hello, have you had any chance to re-test it? From my post above it looked like the threat generation is zero, so I'm using Healing Stream now instead, which also generates zero but at least counts as a little mitigation

I have a question regarding the stat weight you give to defensive stats. You give armor a weight of 0.34, agility a weight of 0.9 and dodge a weight of 17

We know that 20 agility gives 1 dodge and 40 armor so according to your weights:
40 armor = 13.6 points
1 dodge = 17 points
20 agility = 18 points.....shouldn't this be the same as the previous 2 stats together for a total of (13.6+17=) 30.6 points?


Same thing for the "threat" weights, with a weight of 0.6 per point 20 agility give 12 points, but 1 crit is weighted 10 instead of 12
