Dunno why warriors wouldn't like this change... that "threat" set used only for trash will actually make for a good boss set as well. less avoidance and more threat. Im sure warriors will welcome that they can increase there tps on bosses.

The reason warriors might not be enthused is that they are the easiest tanks currently to hit uncrushable, giving them at times a leg up on tanking over tanks who either have a harder time (paladins) or who can't do it at all (druids) - if a boss' crushing blows just aren't soakable no matter how much armor and stam you have, uncrushability is key.But I expect it will work out.

Agreed.Blizzard has done a good job of giving paladins a great niche. They are a must in hyjal and ZA (if your doing the chests). They should do the same with DK's and spellcasters (hungering cold is an absolute win for spellcaster tanking).What im most interested about is Warriors vs Druids. Wtihout crushing blows, druids become the choice tanks because of their high armor and mitigation (id rather have a druid in ZA than a warrior). Warriors still may be the best because i feel their deep prot talents are more suited to absorb damage (while druids look like they get alot of Threat generation abilties), which may stick as what I see as their current roles. Warriors being the best MTs because of highest reduction of damage, and druids being the best OTs because of their ability to generate alot of threat while not being attacked.But with everyone being able to dish out DPS and generate threat while not being hit, we'll see what holds up.Again, blizzard should do a good job.
