Why are people always going on about how amazing this talent is?

I really don't think it's worth taking, especially when Bloodtalons is A LOT more manageable now due to synergies with Elune's Guidance / Rip and Tear / Primal Vitality.

And for it to do damage you have to spec into an artifact trait path that isn't very good (left-hand side).

Taking Feral Power alongside the right-hand path I get near enough 100% crit on Shred during Incarn, which does about 180k. Brutal Slash rarely crits and does 100k, you get 3 of them on a 15 sec recharge. Isn't it supposed to be a "bursty" talent?

So what's the big deal about it? Am I missing something? Is it really worthwhile over a 40% increase on bleeds?

BrS is overrated as fuck the burst increase isn't that huge and the loss of pressure from losing BT is pretty big. As a note. BT is 50% not 40%

And JW > EG too, With rip and tear being a thing there's no reason to play EG cause FB does like no damage for the resources committed. Only reason to play EG is in combination with the maim talent, and even then you can still use that talent with JW just requires a little more planning ahead.

Yeah, I'm only running EG until Rip and Tear is available (need a high honor level). Was running it on Beta when FB was still doing a lot of damage, i.e double BT ferocious bite in opener after double BT bleeds getting people to like 30%, but it pretty much does nothing now. I do more damage by using a BT shred crit than I do a normal non-crit FB.

Considering I've picked up the shred crit chance trait on the way I've pretty much got 100% crit chance during Incarn so I actually lose burst by using Brutal Slash during it.

Still think EG has it's use in a situational sense like you said, but not sure if it's worth taking.

I still always see people on forums complaining about it and every glad-level feral hyping it up like it's the most OP thing. Not really sure why.

If you pre-healing touch a BT proc you can get both bleeds with Bloodtalons, Tiger's Fury and the Rake stealth double damage in the opener with Elune's Guidance. Pretty crazy.
