With all due respect, I consider this a very poor argument, anything that any players can do to change the life or death of another player should be done to give you the best chances to succeed hard encounters.Ultimately it's not my job as a tank to lessen the damage taken on none-tanks other than positioning mobs and possibly interrupting. While i agree that it would be nice to help out on that, it's not worth 2 talent points and especially not on such a situational talent that isn't critical at any point in any fight.
It has a 1 yard splash and there is definitely RNG in this single target spell, please, confirm your information before giving a baseless argument. The platforms are so small that I can actually intervene someone without even moving (if you are less than 4 yards away, you wont even move. If you really need data to prove that, I will gladly fraps it to prove that safeguard is a beautiful element in the warriors arsenalYou know what makes people get "hit by many many shadow volleys at once"? It's not RNG. It happens when people are too close together, which is exactly what happens when you intervene someone.
