Reckoning is a bad talent. 20% chance on a block. I am at 30% block because I reforged to mastery on items with parry+dodge to see how well it works. Doing the math: 3/10 * 2/10= 6/100. 6% chance for this to show up. I will do 4 more swings all doing minimal seal damage and meh melée damage. You get more from the haste in the holy tree. It has never been a great talent.

Well, we shouldn't forget that it also grants us an extra proc on the seal, and that white damage is now buffed up by righteous fury. I remember Theckd stating that it was one of the biggest threat talents so far, behind WotLB and Sacred Duty.There, got the link:http://maintankadin.failsafedesign.com/forum/index.php?f=1&t=29589&rb_v=viewtopic

Reckoning is actually now much better than it previously was, especially compared with some of our other choices. Check out threads on maintankadin for details - Theck's numbers are pretty compelling.

I'll check out the numbers. But if it is now better than our other options that speak as to the other talents being worse as it hasn't gotten any better. It used to be on being hit or block.

I too was extremely surprised to see reckoning overlooked based on the numbers shown at maintankadin and elitist jerks. It's a MUCH better talent than Grand Crusader imo and now in 4.0.1 a huge single target threat increase.

Oh, jesus, perhaps I should follow his links before judging based on the header picture, skimming and comments. My apologies, shame on me. :(Still. Reckoning is good now. I wouldn't pass on it :D

Wow. His math is impeccable as ever and yep, I'll be shelling out for a respec. I hereby call myself a noob, retract my original statement and welcome it downvoted to oblivion. Guess I should keep current. I love that thanks to Holy Power and how ShoR works we are still shackled to a rotation. Great job Blizz.
