I should throw this out here while it's still early: Blood Craze is good for a few things, particularly for soloing old content. Its heal is tiny, but it has no cooldown and can even clip itself. When you're pulling big packs (admittedly a tanking spec thing) of much lower level mobs, they can't keep up with the HoT ticks. I'm currently grinding spiders in Terokkar to make the Aldor love me, and uptime is around ~100%.

Yeah, pretty much this. I'm finding I get more survivability soloing BC Heroics in Protection spec (never lose more than maybe 2k health), but soloing Fury isn't far behind due to Blood Craze. Fury also has the benefit of taking 20-40 second fights (often longer in Prot) down to...literally...3-5 seconds due to this handy formula:Death Wish + Recklessness + Berserking (Troll) + DPS Trinket = deadWhich proves that a good offense *can* be the best defense.

"Which proves that a good offense *can* be the best defense."I imagine that when you pick the "fury" specialization at level 10, the fury warrior people give you a grey t-shirt with this motto written on the front of it.

Indeed, for soloing of any kind Blood Craze is a fantastic talent. It procs reliably off of any type or amount of damage. I have it consistently proc while doing my cooking daily in orgrimmar when I pick a prickly pear fruit. I solo old content all the time as fury, this talent alone makes me able to survive for much longer than otherwise would have been possible. Many of the old raid bosses put dots on you that tick for less than the heals from Blood Craze.Combining blood craze and bloodthirst spam I can solo most old raid content, including Magtheridon as Fury.Funny little bug. My blood craze healing ticks will often proc my hurricane buff on my weapon. Go figure.
