Challenging Roar is an emergency ability that causes nearby enemies to attack you.
Tips and Tactics
This ability is best used to save a group from a wipe when aggro gets out of hand or there are adds that must be quickly and surely drawn to you. After the 6 seconds time, aggro will switch back to its original holder unless enough fresh threat was generated during that time. Good options to generate aggro on the multiple mobs attracted are: Thorns, Demoralizing Roar, and Swipe. Besides those, when grouped up, paladin Retribution Aura can be a good help.
This skill is akin to the warrior's Challenging Shout.
