As much as I like the change to AD, it is unfortunately the wrong change and not enough. It is not, repeat NOT, a cooldown that you can use. The reason we are the last tank chosen for progression is that the other tanks can time their cooldowns to get them through a rough patch. One healer not doing his job or having to run out of range and our "Last Stand" is used up and gone when we need it, whether we chose to use it or not. This is NOT IN ANY WAY A LAST STAND EFFECT. This change makes it a passive Guardian Spirit effect, which is nice, but is decidedly NOT a tanking cooldown. I really don't care if tanking starts feeling more homogeneous. Blizzard says they do, but they really don't either, otherwise they wouldn't have made the sweeping changes they did when LK launched. All I care about is being able to do my job as well as some other class. The fact that they can handle progression content better than I can, not because of their ability but because they have better buttons to push, is BAD DESIGN. This change has no bearing on that.
