In Defense or Defense hybrid, yes, absolutely. In fact, it parses as my highest damager sometimes, because of how often I can use it.

In Vigilance I use it as well, because of the wealth of focus in that spec.

It gets used very infrequently for me in Focus and Combat specs, because the resource/damage trade-off isn't usually there.

Pro-tip: Using Riposte/Retaliate right after an attack with notorious abililty delay, like Blade Storm, will force that ability to do its damage immediately and begin your Riposte animation.
A classic sig that should not be lost:

I use it always. Damage is not bad and off the GCD, adds more burst. Everything that is off the GCD should be used religiously.

Isn't worth the focus cost.

I had a hard time justifying the rage cost but then again... I ran annihilation for months until min/max.

It's not too often I have excess rage but I can see the usefulness in some situations.

I throw it in anytime I have the excess fury. I don't prioritize it, but it is on my bar and I am not afraid to use it

Why or why not?
I'll use it when my opponent pops things that increase their def/parry since it can't be dodged, parried, or miss. I'll also use it when I have too much focus, or I'm about to die and need to unload as much as possible.

Rateds don't mean anything with the current class balance. Sorry bud.

Like others have said, I tend to use when someone pops a parry cd, it's on my hotbar, but I have to think about using it, it's not something in my regular rotation.

I use it like a boss on my Level 22 Jugg, you know, cause I don't have much else.
