As a blood specced tank (Gasp! We do exist!) DS is an important part of my rotation. My whole feeling about blood tanking is "Heal us if you want, but you know, you dont' -have- to," (THIS IS AN EXAGGERATION) and DS is a key part of that. I got a heal on myself for ~8k the other day (at level 73). How happy does that make healers? Fairly, from what I've been told. Even nicer now that pestilence can refresh diseases -- AoE threat bonus + one blood rune to 'reapply' two diseases, increasing DS heals is wonderful. The new talent is part of my spec, 100%.

I second that. It's really nice to be getting nice tanking compliments from healers because I'm not dying very fast at all, I can DS and heal myself in a pinch, and I'm still holding aggro across a horde of mobs. DS is a blood tank's friend.Also, Imp Blood Presence, while only being four percent in non-blood stances, is still nice when I'm pumping out as much damage as half my dps-ers.Blood tank FTW
