I tried bloodtalons in bgs and ashran, pretty strong hits and all but even if it isn't dispelled it is super annoying to throw in a ht and sit on he buff to build cps up and pool or use TF. It is even worse vs a clever dispeller who lets you start to pool for 4 seconds hen dispel your proc.
Did I mention I miss the 15% move speed on our gear? I know its not needed exactly but I've been running at least 150% in cat form since vanilla Lt. Commander gear...
He models for shrivallah are ugly as hell but we won't see a glyph to remove since ppl need to know we're going to be able to clone hem in form I guess.
Healing nerf coming down today is warranted but probably could have come with some protection on the proc? Does hat buff bloodtalons too much?
Moonfire is a waste of a potentially awesome talent slot. Do pve cats even want that over the 6% vets or bt?
I just re-activated a month ago as well & It is extremely bizarre for me as well since I played feral since 1.1 (before mangle was even out). I'm so used to the awful list of prerequisites to maximize shred damage that I found myself still in that rut for a while.
That being said, it is worth having on the bar for emergencies, you wouldn't want to use it over Shred if you know you can get behind. Situations may come up where you need a twitch attack where you don't have time to get in position first - such as applying infected wounds quickly and cheaply.
