Claiming this affects all tanks equally is about as ignorant a comment as can be made, warriors and paladins are hurt much less by this than druids and DKs. Druids are losing their only mitigation form, DKs are losing 1 of their 2 and a huge portion of their threat, when DK threat is already spiky and low as is. Warriors and Paladins still have a huge chunk of block and parry, and revenge really isn't the biggest part of warrior threat since the devestate buff and 2.0 speed of the quel serrar making them hit harder and still being fast enough for heroic strikes as well. DKs are low man on the tank totem pole right now and are going to fall off more in ICC, druids will still have the most HP and armor but the damage incoming is going to be much more significant its going back to the mana sponge idea for druids like they were in Naxx. If this was set up so 10% dodge and 10% block or 10% dodge, 5% parry, 5% block so it was more evenly spaced around the mitigation types it would hit all equally, right now it does not hit the other tanks the same it hits druids.Also when talking about the previous dodge nerf / parry rating buff, that wasn't really the part that hit druids the hardest it was the nerf of agility to dodge ratio as well, since no other tank class stacks agility.
