Master Shapeshifter may look great, except I don't see it as 2% damage per point: I see it as less than 1% per point, because you have to take Natural Shapeshifter first which is nigh worthless for anything except maybe pvp. Which means the only benefit to taking those points is to unlock MS, which makes me consider MS a 5 point talent with a trivial side effect. Looking at it that way it becomes much less tempting.

That's a very good point; for some reason it hadn't occurred to me to think of it that way. Still, it's close to 1% damage per point, which is pretty good.I revised the cat build to include Rend and Tear instead, though, which is probably better. Thanks for pointing this out.

I agree. Naturalist seems a better option over the Shapeshifters for a bear build IMHO. That's an actual 10% physical buff vs. 4% with some mana conservation. My only concern right now is whether Intentsity is worth considering in conjunction with King of the Jungle (and adding Enrage to a rotation). OOC's new version seems nigh on useless to me in a bear build.For "required" resto talents, I only see 13 atm. furor->naturalist->intensity But it's early days yet.

Agreed on the shapeshifting talents 4% for 5 points just can't compare to naturalist and other plain +damage talents.I wouldn't consider intensity to be a required bear talent though, now or in the new patch. Helpful for the very start of pulls, possibly sometimes but not after that.I definately wouldn't be wanting to be poping enrage mid fight unless fairly overgeared, our armour is already getting dropped alot. Should be ok for rage generation with natural reaction anyway hopefully.
