Oct 15th 2008 7:32AM I agree with you here. You can see how I did my talent build for 70 here: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=0ZxGhsfbdceRscuho0x
OOC is a goodish spell however I think dropping it for the others is better at this stage. Realistically, bear tanks generate so much rage that it doesn't matter so much if we get a "free" spell in there once in a while. Especially with these new talents as well, even if you began to get short on rage, you'd soon have it back again.

I don't see the need as a bear tank for the 2 points in Primal Precision. As far as I can see that is purely for kitties because of the reference to "energy." Also I can understand the points in naturalist which are usually must-haves however I have decided to put those points into the now spell-interrupting "bash." Also I think people are perhaps taking the "king of the jungle" too lightly. I use my enrage ability even if I have full rage - every time it has finished CD it keeps me topped up with rage which means super spamming, but also in this case means we will be able to have more spurts of damage.
Overall, we will have more chances to do burst damage and keep our DPS topped up. This means in my opinion we don't have to put as many points into talents that used to be so important.
