    [Guardian] Tooth and Claw

    So what's the thinking on this new ability? On the surface, it sounds interesting, but we have no real numbers on its effect VS using frenzied regeneration or savage defense. Threat wise, by the time it procs and you have the rage threat should be either a non-issue or too late to do anything about.

    I can't really imagine it being better than savage defense unless it completely negated the next melee swing, so I'm guessing the hole it's meant to fill is for when we aren't in any danger and want to add a bit more DPS into our rotation, we won't have to give up /all/ our defenses?

    Depends on if its a percentage damage reduction or a flat amount.

    Guess we do have numbers, and its not great.

    Empowered Maul causes its victim's next auto-attack within 15 sec to deal (max((AP * $AGI) * 250 / 100, $STA * 250 / 100) * 0.4) less damage.

    So flat reduction and of only the auto attacks. Good off tank ability, but that's about it.
