Talent enhancement

  • Commanding Presence increases the health bonus of your Commanding Shout by 5-25%.

Usage and Tips

This is the highest health bonus buff cast by a player, but due to its short range, duration and rage necessity, it is often overlooked. This, when combined with the various Fortitude spells, Gift of the Wild and Blessing of Kings can boost a player's maximum health considerably. In raid instances, this is ideal for the Main Tank to withstand a Boss' melee damage.

Commanding Shout no longer stacks with Blood Pact. The more powerful of the 2 will be applied, which will always be Commanding Shout (2255 untalented vs 1729 talented).
