I always hated how people got confused and freaked out because they thought you had to be frost spec to tank. They should never have given the presences and talent trees the same names.

Good point. I still don't like that the (new) build will be Blood spec in Frost presence. I hope they shuffle the Presence effects so that when you tank it is Blood spec AND Blood Presence. It's just less confusing.

That, or change the names entirely, using complementary, colorful terms. Arms/battle, protection/defensive, and fury/berserker don't confuse.

Or just make the presences different altogether. Give blood the increased stam and threat, and keep some healing returns. Give frost extra spell damage or extra offhand damage. Give unholy extra disease damage or faster disease ticks(haste). Something like that...

I really do have a feeling that presences will be changed to reflect the talent tree changes being made. At least, I hope they do. God, the confusion in Hellfire Peninsula where all the new lvl 58 DK tanks will be insisting that since blood is the tanking tree, it's the presence they should be in.

Wowcoholic has a great idea there. Unholy presence is 80% useless. The only times I really used it is while I'm in the city and after boss wipes so I can get back to where I was faster. Making the presences better reflect their talent trees is an amazing idea. I'm a 2H Frost tank still, and I gotta say I'm gonna miss it. Still very interested on how Blizzard does with the future of the Death Knight.
