The way you quoted it makes it sound like "20% chance per combo point" is the correct interpretation, and a 5-point finished guarantees it (which is the opposite of your analysis).

Exactly. The 'developernese' says that at maximum talent points in predatory strikes, you have 20% chance to get an insta nature spell (in pvp I agree, probably a heal) for every combo point. ie. 20, 40, 60, 80 and 100% depending on the number of combo points. I think a lot of the kitty builds out there are cheering now. Especially in arenas, a good strategy will be to mangle (or do whatever) until you get to 4 or 5 combo points, then maim and while the opponent is stunned, cast and insta heal on yourself, then shift back. This will give more then enough time to get the heal on yourself and generate some energy after you shift back, probably even do some damage. Obviously I haven't tried it yet, since I'm not on the PTR, but I think if it patches through like this, it should increase feral survivability by a noticeable ammount.

Entirely correct, and I fixed up the article to reflect this. I remember writing this last night in a sleep-deprived haze wondering what possible good a 20% chance could do except to leave arena match outcomes up to RNG even more than they already are. Naturellement, this makes a great deal more sense, and is probably a more "balanced" version of the Tier 5 feral bonus given that you *have* to be stacking some CP's in Cat to get any use out of it, rather than just shifting out of form.
