It's pointless for tanks.
Unless they are shadows. Particle acceleration gurantees every project will crit. (if working optimal rotation)

If by some odd reason you wanted a secondary stat dedicated to threat as a shadow, i'd think surge would work quite well.

I've sometimes, as a Shadow tank, gone through several fights without ever seeing Particle Acceleration proc. I find the talent, and surge, useless.

You find particle acceleratoin useless?

I'm sorry that random number generator isnt nice to you every fight, but this talent is pretty much a central key to the rotation.

You are doing something wrong.

Particle Acceleration has a 50% chance to proc off of Whirling Blow and Double Strike. WB is obviously situational but you're either not looking for the PA buff or you're not using DS enough. DS should be in pretty heavy rotation. There is no way you go through several fights without seeing PA.
