Grr...! I'm gonna give you a Feral Staff... Infection!

After the post yesterday, I've been wondering: Do I need to spec for Infected Wounds? It would allow for me to tank AoE mobs a little easier, but will it be enough to tank the mobs that get past me on fights like Gothik?

There's a lot of conflicting information on whether Infected Wounds works on a raid boss, and I've been under the impression for a while that it didn't work. That's why I've really shied away from it. But tonight, before raid, I think I'm going to go spec into it and see how my damage stacks up using WWS. More information to come tomorrow.

I've been told that IW does work on bosses... kinda.

The movement-impairing effects don't work (and don't really matter) but it DOES cause them to attack more slowly.

It's a very nice mitigation stat and I was having a lot of trouble when I first started tanking in Naxx because I didn't have it.
