I've been tanking for some time, but I noticed as dps has been increasing to well over 10k, I'm starting to have aggro issues. I'm using the below build which as served me very well up to this point. I'm level 123 and wondering if it's a rotation issue or a gear issue. Any help is apprecaited.

All tanks have a +- problem with the threat on A52, especially when there is a dps that has 10k + on one target, but that's also the problem with those DPS that they don't use abilities that reduce the threat

@KaptainKarmac I feel your pain. But the threat improvements we had not too long ago made most things much easier. Normal classic WoW was a nightmare to hold any sort of threat, so I'm glad we at least don't struggle until the dps are hitting huge numbers. Regardless until more changes are implemented try switching out a few REs to boost your threat.
The "Taunting" uncommon enchants actually draw a lot of threat. I'm running two taunting thunder clap res.
Another option is the single rare REs like Holy Guardian that increase your threat by 30% with a specific school of magic.
I would opt to take these REs over the 1% agility ones you have currently. Hopefully this helps!
@WiliemDemon Yup, every single one of my builds has an aggro reduction talent, usually "Pyromaniac" because all my dps are casters. I also have Fade and Feign Death. These should be automatic picks.
Looks like all tank threat was increased 20% today.
As for your build:
Instead of Swift Avenger, You can think about going with Stormgarde with 3 talents in Static Shock (take them from Deflection because since you are not using a 2-hander those talents are not in effect) and Lightning Shield (maybe remove Demoralizing Shout). Change the 2 Taunting Thunder Clap to Natural Disaster and either one taunting Shield Slam or one Improved Sword and Board.
