See thats just the thing however, if you look at the current tier, there really arent many low block fights, even on fights like Heroic Feng where there is a lot of non blackable dmg going around he still hits like a mack truck when you are tanking him and you want to have the high SB uptime, barrier is awesome when you arent tanking to help eat some of the DoT dmg and the raid aoes. Looking at heart of Fear, other than Garalon it seems to be the case as well. Will of the emporer has a lot of downtime where SB is useless unless its titan gas there is no damage going out. While some fights it may be annoying and clunky overall looking at heroic encounters bosses are hitting like trucks, so the SB is amazing.
