Level learned

75

Rockbiter Weapon 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. It is learned at level 75.

Notes

Rockbiter Weapon increases threat generation and damage reduction, essentially giving 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.
