I completely disagree that this buffs frost tanks. Of course it all depends on how much damage reduction Unbreakable Armor grants. But the pestilence nerf will probably nerf AoE threat gen unless Blood Boil gets a decent damage buff(probably likely). But the pvp accessibility in the frost tree means less Frost dk's which is opposite of Blizzards intentions. The talent reductions hopefully mean that new frost talents are incoming that buff the slightly underpowered frost. frost could use some love

I wouldn't say it buffs frost tanks, but it's not that large of a nerf. The majority of my DK's threat comes from big Howling Blast crits and lots of consistant disease damage. I doubt the couple hundred damage caused by my Pestilence will make a huge difference this way. And as previously mentioned, this means Unbreakable Armour is good against magic or ranged hits. Can't complain there!Factor in the two "freed up" talent points and I'm a happy tauren.

Frost tanking just got a huge AOE buff. 5/45/21 will be the new AOE king. HB and UB, in the same build. This is assuming they don't move HB further down than FS.http://omenscourge.blogspot.com/2009/02/patch-31-notes-scourge-style.html

@ omenscourgeYeah I was just thinking about that. How could I go frost and still get UB. It means you have to sacrifice Tundra Stalker which is kind of a bummer. I'd be really happy if they moved UB to the 3rd tier.
