Default New to the SK business

I just leveled up my SK to have an actual tank. I have previously been using a ranger or merc but that just wasn't working. Does anyone have a good mash key setup to keep my group or eventually raid from pulling aggro? I have been losing aggro to both the ranger and zkr, and when a friend is around a necro almost every single mob. I appreciate any information or website you might refer me to to get this issue resolved.

What lvl is your Sk? I don't know what the kids are using these days (or what all the changes have been), but it's traditionally been hard to hotkey aggro instead of managing the Sk and hotkeying the other group members.

Just a few minor items -

* When possible, have the SK pull with a Terror. Initial aggro + terror.

* Use Terrors

* Cast Voice of Thule on SK. With max AA, that's 20 minute duration.

Hot Key ideas

I make sure to keep VoT or Touch of Holmein up all the time. 1H with Rune process or 2. Spear, Terror, Impose for Power are your main aggro spells. I do not have a aggro face focus anymore but have no issues with my necro using 5-6+ dots. If I do not focus a lot of time on aggro ramping (spam terror, spear, etc) my shaman will out aggro my SK if he uses 3+ dots. Shaman will out DPS my necro easily in the group game.
