Since the talent applies to both melee attacks and spells, it is highly useful for both Elemental and Restoration specs. As it provides a solid bonus to critical strike chance and is a prerequisite for Flurry, Thundering Strikes is a staple talent for all Enhancement builds.
Thundering Strikes is in every way superior to the Tidal Mastery talent in Restoration, since it is not limited in what it applies to. The two talents stack, however. Thundering Strikes also stacks with the bonus spell crit chance from Blessing of the Eternals. Combining all three talents provides a +14% bonus to spell crit chance.
Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): Now affects spell critical strike in addition to melee critical strike.
