What’s better for warrior AOE tanking? Battle shout or demoralizing shout? And why?
It is an old debate that Blizzard announced “split” fix on like october.
DS=43 per mob afflicted
BS=55 per person (included you and party pets) you buffed
So you do the math. Consider all threat you create will be splitted among all mobs in combat.
Ie. 5 man party vs 5 mobs. If you can DS all mobs you generate 215 total threat, 43 for each mob. If you BS 3 of your party you generate 165 total threat, 33 for each mob. If you BS 4 of your party you generate 220 total threat, 44 for each mob. If you BS 5 of your party you generate 275 total threat, 55 for each mob.
Basically look at the positioning and consider mobs count and/or party members you can buff with 1 BS.
One would be better than the other according the situation and numbers.
