It should be noted that Frost Presence is a stance, that all DKs have. It's the Defensive Stance of DKs.In essence the buff to it is -NOT- a buff to Frost DKs, but to all tanking DKs.

Just to expand on that...What we're seeing here is that some of the mitigation that was in Icebound Fortitude or Bone Shield is now in Frost Presence.This leaves Frost and Unholy tanks pretty much where they were, but is a notable buff to Blood tanks.That is, unless Blood also got a tanking nerf somewhere that I missed. Blood is the one tree I've not even bothered to look at yet beyond the baseline mandatory tanking talent of Blade barrier that -ALL- DK tanks need.

Frost Presence is indeed a spell under the Frost tree in the spellbook, and thus, is listed under the Frost category in this post. It was never specified as a frost-only buff, he merely listed things where they logically belong.I think you're over analyzing this a little. o_O

No in the end it said a nerf to Frost Tanking, which Unbreakable Armor didn't change (the equivalent talent to Vampiric Blood and Bone Shield) and IBF is what changed. But IBF is baseline so really only Unholy tanking took a hit.
