So a hard hitting auto crit aoe and the best defensive cooldowns are justified because of the lack of a hard stun?

Yes.
You can stunlock me for 4 or more seconds, I need a high burst to compensate the time I'm stunned.. I have no crowd control so I can not stop you, you are dpsing me all the time. This is why marauders has more than 2 defensive cooldowns.

There's so many times when I don't have my cc breaker up, I die for a 8sec stunlock..

Tired of the misuse of the term stun lock. 4 sec stun lock? Really?

In Wow getting stun locked meant upwards of 20+ sec of no action.

I also despise when ppl say stun when they are in a cc breakable by dmg.

Just be happy that Free Scream is Shii-cho form only.

and the nerf:
now gets +15% crit damage to everything instead of +30% crit damage to just smash
force choke no longer adds stacks of shockwave

discuss
charge/oblit have now a free 12 second snare so you don't need to waste GCD.

Needs to be removed, total crap. Focus management goes out of hand, even a monkey clicking random abilities wouldnt run out of it.
Instead we need back the Masterstrike buff, which btw is another nerf.

I liked the idea of reducing smash dmg and buffing singl target dmg. But taking away masterstrike dmg isnt a good thing

Yeah it's a nerf for Jugg tanks too.


Why did they take away our ms/rav damage talent?! Eh it's whatever.

Still there for juggs, its in the tank tree and does now 10% instead of 8%.

WTH why would they switch these around?! The free scream is much better for the tank jugg.

Juggernaut tank can pretty much make Scream free at any time now with Sweeping Fury and Revenge. Their Rage management improves beyond all measure with 2.0.

The free Scream talent might as well just be scrapped tbh. Both Rage specs have so much Rage anyway.
