I don't understand the comments regarding Reckoning. My tooltip says that it has a 2% chance to increase my Attack power on the next five swings. How does this produce more swings that can be parried by a mob? Wouldn't it just inprove the damage on my hits?

I think you're misreading the tooltip. With 5 points, Reckoning has a 10% chance whenever you're hit to grant you up to 4 extra swings within 8 seconds.

I thought that I had misread the tooltip, but I went back and checked it. Even after last night's patch, it still shows an Attack bonus, nothing about extra attacks.

Mark, it generates extra attacks, not attack power. Here is the tooltip:5/5 ReckoningGives you a 10% chance after being hit by any damaging attack that the next 4 weapon swings within 8 sec will generate an additional attack.http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=20182This is very similar to a sword spec for warriors or rogues. Those extra attacks can be parried and thus the worry about being instagibbed by high damage thrash n' crush bosses.

Mine does not say that at all. I'll bet it was one of those poorly-written patches Blizzard keeps sending out. I'll probably have to re-install the program.
