Bear Stance damage bonus removal has very little impact on this build given that:
1) Main source of character EWD is Shamanic Trance + Spirit Guide (Bear Stance gave the least)
2) Main source of Merc and Minion damage is Nephalem Spirit which remains unchanged.
The main point of using Bear Stance is to increase defense and cap out party DR%. You have plenty of other damage sources within this build.
