* Shamanistic Rage: Cooldown is now 1 minute, down from 2 minutes. Successful melee attacks now have a chance to generate mana equal to 15% of the shaman's attack power, down from 30%.Considering there were times when I was bringing mana bar to full and more in 1 SR, this may actually increase total mana gained (by reducing waste). Yay!

Exactly. Currently, SR is overkill, and lowering the amount it gives and the CD both by half does much more than just "cut things in half." It lower the amount of wasted mana generated by the talent. Methinks this change deserves a lot more credit than peeps are giving it.

Also it means the damage reducing effect of SR will now have double the uptime. If you hit it every cooldown that's 25% uptime on 30% damage reduction. A great tanking talent. :-)

Mhmm. My guess is that each usage will still restore your mana from nothing to full, because SR currently doesn't take half of its duration to restore all an enhancement shaman's mana (for the vast majority, anyway).

Yea, the big thing is the increased uptime to the damage reduction.Currently I was making due with a low mana bar because I knew a big AE damage spike was coming in a minute and I needed the damage reduction. Now I just hit the button as I will likely have it anyway. This is a good PVP change because now you have it twice as often. More survival with more health will hopefully make things less stupid. Not that enhance should be in anything other than BGs and WG anyway, but it helps.
