@KurdonAs a Pally tank that has a lvl 80 warrior that i tried to tank with i feel your pain, but make no mistake ardent defender is not that much better then survival instinct for druids and last stand for warriors...to be honest i would like to have a talent that increased my health pool on demand so that ardent defender wouldn't proc until i wanted/needed it to. You could get the same basic effect by using last stand and enraged regen - or SI FR as a druid it's not that big of a booster it just is auto so it makes it easier for the people that really don't know how to play their class to survive that big spike damage that Blizz loves hitting the tank with...to be honest this has become more of a omg i have to over heal everyone type of game and that really saddens me. To the point of the column though once that start to strip down the main keys in a group (healer-tank) then we can all be happy with the great amount of time it will take us to run back from the GY for each wipe. I for one will not be caught dead in a group that wipes more then four times in a Heroic if there really is nothing the tank can do to help it, myself included. I stopped tanking for awhile while the pathing bug was getting worked out, but when they start to nerf threat gen, and mobility in favor of making PVP more enjoyable will be the last day I will be tanking with anything other then the flavor of the patch.TL-DR roll another tank, and they will change how they look at warriors.....or judging by how they like to handle things nerf the newest flavor of the month and make them as crappy as the tank you just came from.
