Yep and the reason isn't for direct survivability gains, but for increased rage generation because you never miss revenge or shield slam. Isn't avoidance more of the same now? You get more revenge procs, therefore higher rage generation. I understand that the way shield block/barrier work they are nearly mutually exclusive, but I've used them both to great effect on fights like Durumu where the hard stare needed a barrier, but his melee needed a block. I mean is what I'm saying completely farfetched?
