So I'll speak about my experience with Tfury priority. I come from a more serious guild than usual, the benefit our war tank would typically get from tfury is not that much. Our tanks were usually always on top of threat regardless of tfury or not. If they weren't we'd just ask fury warrior to be more vigilant of their threat and use threat diminishers. We would give the weapon to whoever used their DKP for it.

Right, but were your tanks' threat really that much of a non-issue that a maxed out rogue / DPS warrior WITH thunderfury could still not pose a threat - threat-wise? Because the proc of TF also produces its own threat.

My guild was perhaps a special case, but no, dps pulling too much threat/aggro was never an issue. Everyone knew what they were doing. There's many ways to curb threat, especially on Alliance. We did have a tfury rogue, he would just Vanish/get BOP if such a bad case of threat happened which was very rare.

I heard that hunter received the quest items because he was the one that paid the most via DKP. At the time nobody knew what the mats were for so it was a roll of the dice whether it would even be useful to any specific class.

This would be the case in a guild full of memes that are performing suboptimally. For most guilds TPS will be the biggest variable in bottleknecking your raids DPS. The tanks TPS is the most important factor when considering gearing your team for progression.

There are better weapons out there and they scale with spell damage stuff.

Thunderfury has a high procrate. The proc cause additional threat on top of the damage, and as icing on the cake the damage is further boosted by the threat modifier from Defensive Stance and Defiance.

The difference in threat between having a Thunderfury and not having one is massive. Not sure why people think differently? Even if threat wasnt an issue to begin with due to low DPS on the raid, it just means the tank can exlusively use mitigation gear and never worry about dying rather than wearing DPS gear for threat.

People think differently because they lack experience. Instead of seeking experience through actually playing the game at a high level, they just make presumptions and share them with others as fact. New players can’t interpret the difference and become mislead by those they perceive as experienced and the cycle continues... The blind leading the blind.

You joke, but Caperfin's guild would probably run this spec. And it would be the tank.
