That skill was actually introduced due to the pot nerf.

Out of curiosity, since this spell is channeled doesn't that mean that is pretty much out of the question for use when tanking. Granted I don't know much about channeled spells but would this not act similar to casting and thus remove our ability to parry and block for the duration? (Not to mention wouldn’t spell pushback be incredibly frustrating?).

Whenever you use a pot you get a debuff called Potion Sickness which prevents you to use any other potion.

Basically you will only be able to use one potion(of any kind) while in combat.

Most of the fights where I have mana issues I'm not tanking. Fights like Bloodboil where I need to keep myself high on the threat list while not actually getting hit to regenerate significant mana I'm often choking down mana pots as soon as they are off CD. I can see this being very useful in that sort of fight, especailly as we'll basically be limited to one pot (of any kind) per fight as things stand right now.

Not really, shadowpriests now got Shadowfiend + Dispersion to replenish their mana.

What about others? :p

Well, mana regen is REALLY being buffed if you look at it. Now Paladin = JoW, no matter the spec, ret regens mana, spriest regens mana, survival hunter regens mana, paladins Evocate, and so on.

Shrug...its free, and doesn't cost me 2-4g everytime I use it :)

I know I thought of it more as an offtank spell. Though there are fights were you have a 6sec breather and you could use this...

Any boss where he stops attacking for 8-10sec to channel something
Any boss where taunting is used to switch between tanks
Any encounter where there is more than one tank target, once yours is dead.

Surprisingly this encompasses more bosses per instance than not...
Ex:
Kara: Moroes, Any Opera, Curator, Shade, Nightbane (*forgot Netherspite)
ZA: Bear, Eagle, Dragonhawk, Hexlord, ZJ phase 3/4
TK: Alar, VoidReaver, Solarian, various parts of Kael
SSC: Hydross, Leo, FLK, tidewalker(ot), Vash, Lurker
Hyjal: Rage, Anetheron (OT), Az (OT)
BT: Supremeus, Shade, Bloodboil, RoS, IC, Illidan

I probably missed some and several of these have only windows you can use it...but its alot harder to find fights you COULDN'T use it effectively in

Nightbane goes to air before skeles come/skeles dead but NB still in air?
Netherspite is on OT?
your other tank has his turn on nalorakk and you just ate cleave so it´s on cd??
one side of dragonhawks dead and waiting for other side to hatch?
Lurker dives?
Murlocs coming in a sec but not here yet?
My dude dead in multi-boss fight and i´ll want to help in healing/dps/try catch others in threat?
etc.etc.etc.
those just from top of my head.
You only need 6 seconds without someone hitting you...there´s plenty of those times even when tanking. Even if you only can get 3 secs safely, it´ll still be free 25% of your mana pool.
