It's essential to an effective immortal build.

At level 50, it'll absorb just under 1.2k, that's a good sized hit, and almost 10% of your health when you hit fresh 50. In my opinion, it is most valuable because of the control you have. It's not a proc, it's a result of casting force scream. If you know something big is coming, you can pop it.

Plus you can spend the talent point to make it free after a Force leap. Minor amount of range is another plus.

It scales off of force healing (which scales from Str.)

Force healing scales based on willpower & power, not strength.

Irrelevant of how it scales, its is a really nice talent. Controlled choice for a shield that absorbs damage. If you find your defensive CDs unusable and scream is up, its will offer you a good buffer, plus it can come rage free when talented.

I agree with most that is a quite good talent, but the talent for making it "free after a force charge" is no imo. Because you wan't to use it when needed and not just because you got the buff for a freecast, setting it on CD.

And I do like the other tier 1 talents more...

I use it off cooldown too. I need to use my big Force attacks to hold aggro. Force attacks hit harder, they have a bigger damage bonus.

We're not Inquisitors, we have no need for Willpower, certainly not worth stacking just for the barrier.
