Let's consider an interesting possibility, what if there is no defense in the expansion?The precedent is there, defense has been removed from all relevant talents in favor of dodge. The effects this would have on itemization and even tanking roles would be immense.The most obvious side effect is that while Blizzard has removed crushing blows, all tanks would be subject to the 5.6% chance to be crit. With defense gone and resilience made null in PvE, there would be nothing to do but suck it up and take critical strikes. Only Druids would be uncrittable with Survival of the Fittest.So Druids would be the premier physical mitigation tanks, having massive armor and no potential for damage spikes.This would vastly alleviate the conern that Druids will be getting sidelined in WotLK. No one is going to look down on a tank that can completely avoid nasty bouts with the RNG.

And you in 5 short paragraphs just reversed roles for top tank position with warriors... something i think people for the most part would rather avoid having one class to be the premier(sp) boss tank
