That's true. I don't think anyone can argue that saving a HS for an event 30 seconds in the future is an optimal thing to do. The fact is that it will work and be used like warriors SB. At times it will be more useful to use it on CD for less damage intake over time, and at times it will be more useful to save it for upcoming burst (sometimes both during the same encounter!).
I like the change just because I feel that tanks should be playing actively for their mitigation and not just get it all baked in. It adds a fun factor and overall increases the skill-cap for the spec.
I thought more and more about how, while I would mostly use HS on CD, there would be plenty of times where I would hold off on it. I realize that that in itself is a choice.
So yeah, I guess there *is some real decision making involved with using HS now. My bad.
