Darkmoon Card: Maelstrom
A highly useful item for melee fighters, it is mostly aimed for Fury Warriors, Dagger Rogues, or Catform Feral Druids, who rely on a high attack rate. This trinket has about 1.5% proc chance, and it procs from every melee strike, including feral attacks (making this very useful for feral Druids) and free strikes. It is known to crit and may be affected by +spell damage (hits over 300 have occurred on non-vulnerable targets), and can be resisted normally as nature damage, it can also hit for 1000-1400 when the target is vulnerable to nature, in BWL for example. Depending on weapon speed, it can add between 1 to 3 DPS (and sometimes higher), on average.
It is useful as a damage trinket in high-end raids, in PvP and solo PvE.
