Returning Prot warrior talent advice.
First, obligatory armory link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...e/Eisen/simple
Please ignore the gear. I'm in the slow process of upgrading everything with JP, VP, and the new instances. It's coming along just fine and I feel comfortable there.
Where I DON'T feel comfortable is in talent choices. I'm a old school tank who left wow for many months and is just now returning...and everything I thought I knew about talents seems to be wrong. So, some advice on talents please? I didn't see any talent guides stickied, and I only trust EJ so far.
1) Seem to be hearing noises that blood and thunder isn't good anymore. That's always provided me with a TON of aoe damage/threat, and I was happy with it. But I'm hearing that I should get rid of it. Will it really not hurt my threat that much to do so? Certainly simplifies my aoe rotation to not have to worry about frontloading rend.
2) Thunderstruck: See above for B&T. I hear the same here. It's no longer important. I know that the new Vengeance and threat mechanics make threat easy mode now, but is it so easy I can ignore every aoe talent I have?
3) Blood Craze: A lot of the specs I'm seeing are ignoring this in favor of Cruelty or Battle trance. Is the extra little crit/rage worth the (admittedly minor but every bit helps) survivability of Blood Craze?
I'm guessing if I remove points from all those, it's back to our old favorite standby deep wounds for me?
Thanks in advance.
