Quoted from the lovely Crezax from the EU Druid forums: http://forums.wow-europe.com/thread.html?topicId=220712071&sid=1

We have implemented the following two hotfixes:
The Druid ability Lacerate will now land a small amount of instant damage, causing it to generate threat against bleed-immune creatures.
The Druid ability Mangle (Bear) will now generate 50% bonus threat.
The reasons for this are:

1. Lacerate will now do a small amount of direct damage to the target. This means it will generate threat rather than an immune message when used on bleed-immune creatures. However, bleed-immune creatures will still not receive the debuff from Lacerate. This should address concerns about Druids being able to tank in specific bleed-immune encounters.

2. Mangle (Bear) now generates 50% bonus threat on its damage. We realized that in reducing Mangle damage, we made it less useful as a snap aggro tool. This threat bonus moves it back up to almost where it was before the 2.0.10 changes.

In addition, we examined concerns about the best Feral Druid armor pieces being outdoor world quest rewards, and Druids feeling their tanking ability would not scale with better gear. We are adjusting superior and epic leather pieces designed to be used by Bear Druids and increasing the armor on many of those items, particularly raid sets. These changes, however, will not show up until patch 2.1.0.

Exactly what I wanted really, to fix Lacerate(our bear-sunder) and some other means of generating threat, very glad to see they will fix some leather items to give more armor... so it's actually worth raiding to get the tier sets

Lacerate will still be stackable against immune-to-bleeding mobs, but Im guessing the small dmg will generate enough threat(tho not as much dmg), 50% more threat on mangle was something I didnt see coming, great for bear - not so great for cat(cower will get spammed?)

Havent tried out dps in cat form since....well, UBRS in pre-BC so dont really care, tanking FTW! :D

Ehm?

2. Mangle (Bear) now generates 50% bonus threat on its damage

Quoted from your own post...

Edit: Mangle (bear) is a nice skill for catform

Just for the people that didn't get to what I was refering.
