"No that can't be right. I heard 540 for heroics and 560 for raid..."So you're saying that for some reason, what you "heard" is more important than the +140 def to uncrittable game mechanic that has been in the game for literally four years? It's +125 def to be uncrittable by equal level mobs, and then +5 def per level afterwards. Boss mobs are equivalent to +3 levels, so, +140 from the "learned" cap of 400.Remember, this means you DO NOT actually need 540 defense to tank any Heroic. The highest level mob in any heroic is level 82, which means you need 535 to be uncrittable in heroics. Now, WotLK is easy, so even crittable tanks should see some success in heroics/10mans... but with the fact that DKs are naturally somewhat bursty, we really need to smooth incoming damage out as best as we can, and that means getting to the cap, and stacking our armor to be used with our armor modifier.
