@lownwolfSwipes damage (and threat) is very weak and no, it is not at all complementary to Thrash. If Swipe were to slap the Mangle bleed debuff on the targets, then it would complement Thrash, making Thrash hit quite a bit harder. Also, Thrash is a bleed that is mitigated by armor. It's the only bleed I know of in the game that does not ignore armor. We also have no ranged silence, the only tanking class that lacks this tool.Bear AoE tanking is not impossible by any means; it just not where it could be and should be in comparison to other tanking classes. Read the forums. There's a thread in General called Why Druids are Frustrated by Saviodrood. It covers Bear Tanking issues as well as Feral PvP issues. There are some really good responses in there from some very highly regarded bear tanks. There's even a blue post, although the information in it seems way off the mark. Overall it's a good read.I'm hopeful that due to all the recent changes to Feral, they are waiting for some more data and taking more time before planning any further adjustments. I do expect to see some changes in the next round of patch notes.
