In its current state, tactician feels pretty good and reliable. A 40 rage move (execute, t clap, whirlwind, ignore pain) guarantees a reset. Crit and haste levels can be stacked to very high levels already in this tier that rage generation is absurdly good. What can feel awkward is using T clap/WW is a better move choice over slam/rend in single target. MS damage overshadows everything else in the move pool that damage from slam, WW, etc may as well not exist.
I feel the inverse. It’s a big gutting to its survival versus Fury, as well as removing a rage dump that they need to replace for AM/ToM/Tactician purposes. We already have Sudden Death being a double edge in that regard.
Until this change, I was dead set on doing Arms, but now I’m probably running Fury next patch. Again. We’ll see if Blizzard fixes this, since it seems like we’re drifting towards a worse version of Shadowlands Arms.
I’m not saying it’s a bad change, per se, but as Tinderbeef pointed out our rage economy is screwy. They didn’t announce any other changes related to this so far, so I’m just miffed that this didn’t come with even any acknowledgement of what it means to remove that from 2-3 core functions in the spec as it stands.
Hopefully they’ll announce something in the interim for it.
