War Machine Bear Ultimate Question

I have a question about War Machine on a Stam Warden ranged build. Currently one of the only issues with Major Slayer from War Machine is the fact that it applies to the two closest players to the player that used the ultimate. That being said it can be given to tanks accidentally rather than the dps you would like to receive the buff on fights where the group requires a soft stack rather than hard stack.

Currently mag and stam nightblades, stamplars, and wardens are the only classes that can achieve a near 100% uptime on major slayer due to low ultimate costs they have.

My question is if a ranged build Warden were to use the bear ultimate at range would it give major slayer to the two closest players to the Warden or the bear? Anyone test this yet? Would love to hear some input on this

    Two closest to the warden :) tooltip says closest to YOU. And that's what happens.

    Thanks for the input I figured that's how it worked. Question would be now is a ranged Warden build provide enough DPS for HM trials to be viable over bringing other classes. This would definitely bring some unique utility to the group that can't be provided by Mag/Stam NBs and Stamplars for buffing ranged dps on soft stack trial fights.

    I tried Alcast Bow/Bow build on my StamWarden but felt it really lacked in DPS for trials compared to other classes. I have full BIS gear for him however that was before all my skills and passives were leveled. Will have to test again, anyone out there have any parses close or above 35k on a Bow/Bow build on a Stamward?
