I have to say that i find it pretty useful (thx to the new improved rage gen in the rage tree, and through passion) and i usally use it when it is off cd, what about you?

im also curious if you guys pick up the speed buff after obliterate or if you take through passion and what YOU find most useful?

neither I find them both useless to be honest, i prefer using those points to get the extra strength in the veng tree.

It buffs your strangulate ability in that it suffers no push back at all. It is an oversight for you to not see the utility it offers. It is a great ability as not only does it interrupt another player or mob but it does good damage as well. It also builds Shockwave charges which enables your smash to be your most damaging talent. Without it you may not get every tick from your Force Choke! It also is a good Rage builder as well. However this is your toon so do with it as you please.

Yes, because spending two talent points to potentially gain an extra maybe 1500 crit tick on an ability used once a minute is totally worth it.

Likewise, a 10% heal (read, minor heal) for something that is on a 2 minute CD that shouldn't be used off CD anyways is also not a comparitively wise choice. I would much rather buff abilities that I use far more.

Well Rage spec for juggs is pretty sqishy and thats no secret and thats the reason i pick up both Through Passion and Payback , cuz those selfheals saves my life pretty often.. and interceptor and strangulate dosent bring enough to the table to compensate that in my opinion and thats pretty much the only other choises we got in this tree =)
