I don't have a source to cite but I'm almost certain that some blue said that both bears and warriors will gain rage through absorbed damage now. I seem to remember reading it on mmo-champion around the same time Savage Defense was first announced.

Well, I was sort of right.http://blue.mmo-champion.com/1/14990472390-class-change-highlights-parts-1-2--3.htmlUnder Warrior changes, "You now gain rage when damage done to you is absorbed, such as through a Power Word: Shield. "Whether that includes bears and savage defense, or even made it to the PTR, I have no clue. Guess we have to wait until the thing works after all.

It would make more sense for that change to be listed under druid changes, since it doesn't affect warriors a great deal. While a warrior being shielded while tanking a boss will affect rage gen a little, we're already in an almost unlimited rage situation. With savage defense druids are going to be shielded much more meaning they would feel the rage loss if they didn't gain rage when shielded.What i was hoping to see for warriors is gaining rage when attacing a shielded enemy. This is a pretty big problem for warriors in PvP since absorbed hits make us fairly useless.
