Shield Block. You're not going to get those big shield slams without the +100% SB increase. If we were to get this usable in Battle and Berserker stance, we could get those big shield slams back.

The problem, however, is that our yellow attack crit percentage is still a paltry 10%, which I think adds to our rage starvation woes when not getting hit. If you look at Arms and Fury warriors and their related gear, they're well into the 30-40% crit percentage.
You know what would be cool? If we had a talent that took this into account and added 15% crit to our white hits but maybe only when you're wearing a shield. In fact, why not just get rid of the added +15% crit bonuses from Sword and Board (for devastate) and Critical Block (for Shield Slam) and change Incite to "Increases Critical Strike chance by 5/10/15% when wearing a shield". You could argue that that would make it so that Arms or Fury would start wearing shields for that extra crit, but I kind of doubt that'll be the case.
Stay strong. Stay smart. All heart.
