Talents, Serious Business.
So I'm just one day away from my first serious push into BWD and I've been obsessing with my spec. I have found a core I'm comfortable with, but I have one problem:
Is there some order of preference to the threat/dps talents?
Incite adds 5% crit to HS per point allotted and has a proc on HS crit that gains value as your crit rating increases.
Heavy Repercussions is a 16.67% or 33.33% damage buff to SS at 1 or 2 points respectively (assuming you pop SB on CD, which isn't likely the case).
Cruelty is static 5% crit to SS per point allotted and is required to get Rude Interruption.
Rude Interruption gives a static 5% damage bonus for 15 or 30 seconds at 1 or 2 points respectively following a successful interrupt.
War Academy is a static 5% damage buff to HS, Cleave and Victory Rush per point allotted and is required to get Deep Wounds.
Deep Wounds adds 16% of your weapon damage to your crits per point allotted, for a maximum of 48% at 3 points.
I often find myself looking at these threat/dps talents against survivability talents like Blood Craze and Impending Victory and utility talents like Gag Order. I realize Blood and Thunder and Thunderstruck are also talents often exchanged with these, but I view them as incredibly useful in any AoE tanking situation.
I've been starting with this build: http://wowtal.com/#k=ffWcUxV.a8t.warrior.
I then have to allocate 3 points amongst Incite, Gag Order, Impending Victory, and/or Heavy Repercussions. Then I take 3 in Sword and Board and 1 in Shockwave.
Now I throw the obligatory 2 in Field Dressing, and I have 8 more to divide amongst Incite, Gag Order, Impending Victory, Heavy Repercussions, War Academy, Deep Wounds, Cruelty, Rude Interruption, Piercing Howl, and the much less attractive Drums of War and Booming Voice. This is where everything for me crashes.
What build would you make for serious BWD progression raiding? (I realize not everyone takes Blood and Thunder and Thunderstruck for progression raiding, you can remove these should you so desire).
