...Any Disc priest with half a wit about rage generation for warr/bear tanks knows better than to make PW:S their only spell... hell, even I only toss up the shield on my Disc priest if health starts to drop below half...Paladin tanks, I'm not afraid to toss a shield on, but I have to remind myself that they're taking damage from multiple foes at once. That shield may fall off faster than anticipated (such as with Weakened Soul up) - and may screw you if they're taking more damage than you anticipated, as well.Of course, that may come down to their own fault for pulling that much damage at once/dps lollygaggin'/no spell interrupts (Shadow Blast in Ahn'kahet, anyone?), but still.Just my two cents. I'm partway glad they're nerfing the cost to PW:S, personally, and this is WITH a Disc priest. It makes the bigger absorption amount feel a bit evened out to me, and turns it more into the 'oshi-' button I've come to see it as.

Uh, pw:shield hasn't interfered with rage generation since patch 3.1 or a little before.

You realize they allowed rage to be generated through absorbs at the start of wrath right?I mean... if they didn't bears would be somewhat screwed, I mean I hear they make their own bubbles and all...In other words, /clap for trying to be condescending, but it only works if your right. Like me. Because I'm awesome. And your not.

PW:S has not affected rage generation for years. Pre shielding is a valid tactic when tank healing no matter who the tank is.
