It wildly depend on team composition. In 4 v 4 dps I will often get focused first and Force Bound + Grit Teeth is not going to help much. In those matches I use LW first and maybe Cut to pieces second, as the odds of getting a second life from GT is near zero anyway. Force Bound helps a bit, but it's certainly not a game changer.

Healer + tank matches are a different beast altogether. FB is a lot more useful here and especially GT shines.

Its still BiS almost everywhere simply because people can't CC other people while under the effect of forcebound (with no more than a handful of exceptions), which is where most of its strength lies.

Take force bound if you are vs operatives, sorcs, pt's or veng jugg who is not kiting (crossguard heal games for example)

Force bound is so annoyingly designed because it gimps your dmg considerably but is such a carry against certain comps that it's basically a must take. It sucks to use it and sucks even more to have it used against you.

There are some exceptions for games when you literally have to carry someone in ur team who is on a very short timer and you need to just go balls to the wall with descent set and dps tactical and try to race the enemy team

I did the plunge last week on my Sentinel, and in most games I have seen a 10-20% drop in DPS.
I am running four peaces FB and the three peace Amplified Champion so I get the WE extra numbers.

Although yesterday I was again to my usual average of about 5k in Combat/Carnage.

The utility works but do not accept to be thanked for it, and people will also complain that you are doing less DPS.

There is a lot of truth being said about the FB set. Is it better for overall dps - No. Does it provide a better opportunity for your team to win vs decent - Yes. Is the survivability better with FB and Grit - Absolutely Yes.

Remember, FD is your friend. Always blow this first. Utilize defensive CD's and stims afterwards to allow for a few more seconds to be able to utilize Grit again. The use of awe is situational imo but helps significantly. Blade blitz is also your friend, great escape which allows for a leap back in. Then 4 seconds of stun immunity.

Decent is great for regs but worthless in solos.

Also, I never considered using FB on a sent/mara. I could see it help a combat/carnage spec though. I will have to give it a test.

Nope, a good fury mara would be wasting their time with FB.
