I have to say this change is pretty disappointing. I thought they'd go with a system where a tank talent deep in each tree would switch that Tree's masteries over to Tanking Masteries. That would allow easier balance tweaking among each DK tank (adjust masteries and special tanking-only talents that require the mastery-switch talent).Flexibility was a GREAT thing about the DK and I had thought we might see them eventually expanding that flexibility to other classes. Now, apparently, they've decided not to bother with that sort of thing and just go easy-mode on class design here. Overall, pretty disappointing that they went the easiest route. Makes me less excited about Cataclysm when they make decisions like that.

Easy mode on class design? Considering the multitude of considerations that go into balancing, it's more accurate to say they chose "Extremely difficult mode" over "sisyphean mode."

Like I said though, there were other solutions to the problem that would have made balancing DK tanks much, much easier. Instead the gutted one of the most iconic/unique things about Death Knights in WoW.
