    Default Question about Ranged Threat Reduction

    Ahoy,

    I'm looking at my options for a rogue AA, and having some challenge finding threat reduction for ranged. All of the rogue enhancements (short of Shadowdancer) seem to specify melee only, along with the vast majority of items (short of the magewright cloak).

    Are there any ranged threat reduction methods beyond the 15% from Magewright?

    That same bonus shows up on Wretched Twilight, the various flavors of Cloak of the Dragon, Epic Bracers of the Hunter, and Bow of Sinew as well.

    Your other option is the "Paranoia" proc that you can add to the Parasitic Breastplate that will often give you -50% threat.

    the threat reduction 'buff' from using Bluff doesn't explicitly say it is melee-only and so could be worth some testing. taking diplomacy would also help as it drops the aggro built up from attacks

    Assuming those sources don't stack, it sounds like 15% is the maximum ranged threat reduction from items - correct?

    So, it sounds like I'll be needing to Twist of Fate shadowdancer as well as keep up a high diplomacy. Eesh. With all the kiting complaints, you'd think there'd be some built in ways to negate that issue.

    It's chicken and egg. There are only kiting complaints because there is no possible way to significantly lower ranged threat outside of reducing ranged DPS. If you reduce ranged DPS, the ranged people complain that it doesn't compare well to melee DPS.
