Do any of you ever use Ravage? I know that come tomorrow everything changes, but I don't recall seeing Ravage even mentioned during the whole beta process. I'll have to get on the ptr to see if they changed it all, would be nice if it turned out to be a pleasant, useful surprise.

Nope. It is not even on my bar.

I guess it might be a nice opener against a drinking clothie in world PvP???

But with the new maim, I'm not sure that makes sense anymore.

As far as I remember its damage has been increased quite a bit. But Pounce is still the better opener in PvP, and possibly even in PvE.

I occasionally use Ravage to open in PVE when I am just farming far inferior mobs (skinning etc). It offers large burst damage but no bleed or stun, so I would always reccomend Pounce in PVE & PVP unless your target has laughable HP.

Also, when I am fighting such inferior mobs I usually don't want to take the time or effort to cloak and position myself....ussually just walk up and Rip, Mangle, Fer. Bite....dead.

Ravage is a good opener for PvP on mages sometimes, unless you know for sure that their blink is on CD, then Pounce > Ravage
