Nope, this is just a tooltip change. Defense doesn't actually reduce the chance to take a crushing blow right now.http://www.wowwiki.com/Crushing_Blow explains it in detail.

Begin Nit PickingWhile Defense does not directly increase your resistance to crushing blows, each point of defense does increase your dodge, block, and parry by 0.04%. So indirectly it does help out, but not by much (unless of course, you play the min/max game... then its rather important.)End Nit Picking

Edit: How could I possibly resist nit picking the master of the warrior column, The Care and Feeding of Warriors? :-)

And that is why you are the master of the warrior column. :-)

Crushing blow chance is 15%.No amount of defense in the game will push it off the table for warriors without Shield Block.
