For those who don't know, taunts give the tank a large threat multiplier for 3 seconds. In an expansion where threat is so horrendous, they are trying to sneak in a change that removes this multiplier in 8.1.
Speak out, make yourselves heard, and always keep a thread protesting this change on page 1. We can't let this go through. Life is already miserable enough for tanks as it is.
[EDIT] It's been confirmed that the threat boost is being changed to a hidden effect, and thus is removed from the tooltips, but they are planning on nerfing the threat boost. This is still a serious issue, as tank threat overall is not in a good place in BfA. Classes with high base DPS and strong offensive cooldowns hardly feel the BfA threat nerf (DH, Paladin), but classes without these abilities are already suffering immensely, especially bears. Both Monks and bears have zero offensive cooldowns, meaning they are incapable of generating snap threat that lets them keep up with high-burst DPS classes (DH, Warrior, Frost Mage, etc). Prot Warriors are also the most-crippled spec by the GCD changes. The clunkier you make tanks, the more unfun they are to play, and the more threat issues they'll have.
