Hey Rossi,What are your thoughts on the idea that some Fury warriors are dropping Bloodsurge for the "fact" that Slam is worthless? They say that wasting the GCD and rage for a skill that crits for a little over the base damage of a Bloodthirst is a dps loss.I've never set foot in a raid so my best gear is from heroic dungeons and emblem vendors. I tried dropping Bloodsurge and Slam from my talents/rotation and I maybe saw a dps increase. I dunno, maybe I wanted to see it. Anyway, anyone else think this is viable?

Right now, theorycrafters are seeing that Slam is only worth it IFF Bloodsurge is procced AND you have an overabundance of Rage, because Heroic Strike > Slam, so if you only have Rage for one or the other, you want to use HS. The question is, can you find a more useful place to stick those points?

Note however that this is dependent on having good gear. If you're a very fresh 80, I suppose it's possible that Slam will hit for more. The difference is that Slam hits for base weapon damage plus a static modifier, so it's only slightly better than an autoattack, while HS uses a small static number modified by your AP. So, the higher your AP, the better HS will be in comparison with Slam. You should check to see what the actual numbers are for your character with your gear.
