Making Retallation an "O Shit Button?"
I think instead of putting Shield Wall on a one minute CD, they should make Retallation into a bit more of a tanking tool, yes I know many use it for AoE trash. (I personally dont bother...)
But if it could also double up as a damage reducer, or a massive Absorption tool.
Lowering the CD slightly on both Shield Wall and Retallation along with the Last Stand CD they're about to lower could help solve our problem.
Retaliation is shit because it doesn't proc on avoided or (partially) blocked hits. Utter shit for tanks.
I use it in the Sartharion Fight when I''m add tanking ....works nice
I use a BR/BV set for adds so I have a whopping 5-10% chance (depending on buffs and my lousy memory :P) to get hit and trigger Retaliation.
