    Rend as prot.

    Does rend scale dynamically with weapon damage or I it's enough to wield a 2h when applying and refreshing it?

    i really dont think its ever smart to switch to a 2H when tanking

    Just make a macro to swap weapon asap. so about 1.5 seconds without shield at pull shouldn't hurt to be honest.

    On topic: As prot it shouldn't matter mate. The damage you would give would be tiny so what is the point of endangering yourself?

    You can macro your 2h to rend and thunder clap and your tanking weapon to some revenge so you only spend half a second,which isn't dangerous with proper timing.The problem is that you it's not worth doing that if it rescales when you swap your 2h out.

    Do note that switching weapons resets the swing timer.

    It doesn't scale dyamically so you only have to equip a 2h when you apply and refresh it,it's about a >15% rend increase with full vengeance.

    Didn't notice it resets your swing timer,since you only have a 15 second window to refresh it via tc it's too tricky to make a dps increase.But it's proably worth manually refreshing applying at favouring circumstances.

    Waste of time and pointless, especially at this point. Besides, Rend is gone come 5.0 and that's not far off.

    For what its worth, Deep Wounds in beta does far more damage than Rend does now, 1H or 2H.
