Slam and Shield Slam are two different things. Slam does the same thing your steady shot does. it will clip our autoattack. And when you're swinging once every 3.6 secs, and you mistime your slam, that's a lost hit that means a big hit to your DPS.
So if Blizz is gonna make it easier for the hunters(yay, just what we need them to do, dumb the game down more), they should also do the same thing to Slam for a warrior.
