Hmm. I find a few good changes most mediocre. Imho, the imp def stance is probably the best new addition to the prot tree. Its nice that they shaved pts off some of talents, but it doesn't make up for the talent pt inflation we pay for our talents. If you look at the other class trees, they get more for their talent pts than we do. They fold more abilities into each talent in their tanking trees so they can still maintain their uniqueness and yet they still get talents that mimic talents we have. On top of that they have nerfed the rage saving from devastate and still not have addressed removing Stalwart Protector to the Arms tree were its renamed Justified Killing. I can't even talk about Vigilance. I have played with many different talent builds and can say at least I don't have to waste a pt into it. It is useless for threat or mitigation. Here's a clue. You took a 31pt talent that defined our tree and gave it to all that can use a shield (even other another class). How about doing something smart and putting Shockwave there. We could talk about threat modifiers and whether it should be a stun, daze, knockdown and whether it should be a cone or AoE. But, that would allow better off tank hybrid builds which could be beneficial on multi-mob trash pulls and make warriors a + to bring to a raid or even 5 mans. That would mean that another 51pt talent would have to be designed. This time get it right and give us a tool for mitigation. Not some RNG which I can't really affect. Not something on a 20 to 60 sec CD or greater. Give us a real tool while tanking. Something that defines us as a Prot warrior that isn't given to everyone else. I think that TG is an excellent example as something unique that defines warrior dps. Why can't we have one as a prot warrior also?
