DKs have the same health pools as warriors, though, and not only do their dps cooldowns not penalize them with taking extra damage, they have damage mitigation cooldowns that are off the global cooldown and thus can be used with no dps penalty whatsoever. In fact, a well-timed Anti-Magic can not only reduce the damage you take but provide you with extra potential dps by giving you more runic power.Ret Pallies also have the same health pools as dps warriors, and have divine protection available as a damage mitigation cooldown which doesn't need to hurt their dps if avenging wrath is timed properly. In addition, they can pop an instant flash on themselves if art of war is procced and exorcism is on cooldown, and ret pallies are not GCD-bound usually.Rogues do have lower hp, however with proper use of Feint or Cloak of Shadows they can mitigate some damage, at a very small cost to their dps. Enhancement shamans also have Shamanistic Rage to reduce incoming damage.The only damage reduction a dps warrior has access to that I can remember is Shield Wall, which would require them to equip a shield, change stance, use the ability, then change stance again and back to their dps weapon, *and* it's on a 5-minute cooldown, far longer than the damage mitigation abilities available to other classes.
