Consecutive posting. I'm merging this post with the one before it.
And in that case - where you want to manglespam as much as you can - imp mangle doesn't help you until you've cast your 3rd one. That's when you'd be able to get a 4th one off. So yes, in the unlikely case where you must mangle to attract the mob and can't afford for whatever reason to switch to bear and mangle that way, imp mangle is marginally better after 6 seconds of time.
The mandate I have from my guild is to maximize my dps in any way possible. My current build includes 2 points in improved Mangle. It sounds like those points were a mistake.
I'm going to be dropping a point from imp Mangle to get Feral Charge. Mijae said FC should be part of a cat build. Last night I realized just how many times I could have used FC to get back into combat quickly. (Thanks Mijae!)
I could take SI over 1/3 imp Mangle, but I'm not sure that would increase my dps. If I get boss aggro I don't think it will do any good at all.
