Rockbiter Weapon is a core shaman ability learned at level 75. It adds a 30% threat increase to a shaman's spells and attacks and provides a 5% decrease to all damage taken when a weapon is imbued with it.
Modified by Edit
- This essentially gives the shaman some tanking capabilities. The shaman class still cannot serve as a full-time tank, though if temporary off-tanking is needed they can fill the role in a pinch with this ability.
