If you take a look at the alpha trees, you'll see that the Frost tree is somewhat lacking when it comes to mitigation, whereas both Blood and Unholy have some very nice tanking talents. There doesn't appear to be one "tanking" tree. Rather, each tree has something to offer for tanks, even fairly deep in each tree.Personally, I think this a brilliant change from the way tanking has been done before with one definitive tank tree. By scattering the talents across each tree, Blizzard ensures that every spec gains some level of tanking ability and encourages hybrid builds. If the trees stay the way they are, a tri-spec may very well end up being the most effective strategy. Props to Blizzard for throwing a wrench in the works and trying something new. Now lwe see if they stick with it and make it work.
