I will have to agree with the writer on this one. Tanking is what i love about WoW and have done since Vanilla...Yes i leveled as Prot in Vanilla..it was grueling. I now have a level 80 character in each of the tanking classes. My warrior is my main and is geared in mostly Ulduar 25 gear. My pally is in mostly Naxx gear as well as my druid. My DK is fresh to 80, so I actually can't comment to much on how he feels raid tanking yet. To the point...of the three raid ready tanks i have, my warrior is the most difficult and frustrating one to play. Playing off tank on encounters is my worst nightmare and forget trying to out threat or dps a pally or druid. Don't get me wrong, I can lay down some decent threat with my warrior, but compared to my pally and druid, it feels like a workout. Now the dev's want to nerf my avoidance and reduce my shield slam damage...all in name of burst damage in PvP. Seems as if they have recognized a problem and rather than actually putting some thought into it, they shook the magic WoW 8-ball and came up with this terrible plan to fix it. I like the plan to have strength be the mitigation modifier and do away with Block all together. Just have those talents scale on strength. It would make warriors think a bit more about their gems and enchants (maybe), so we are all not stacking stam and hoping taunt doesn't miss...
