2 points here which I think are not properly understood in this post. The first being about druids, saying that savage defense doesn't proc a lot or is some how unreliable. A properly geared druid tank will have well over a 50% chance to crit which translates in to a over a 50% chance to proc SD. This is a bigger chance than warriors or paladins have to block or at least the same chance. In fact when you combine a geared druids dodge and crit (aka block chance) the can get over 102% "avoidance". If you combine that with the fact that the can reach the armor cap and the larger health pool to say that they take more damage than other tanks is not really accurate in any sense in fact they take less effective damage especially with any type of priest healer.Second Army of the dead is not a defensive cool down. Any raid death knight tank that channels it to attempt survive incoming damage is a fool since you cannot dodge or parry any attacks while channeling spells. You could come up with a situation were you could do this however all other cds would have to be unavailable and you would have to guarantee no incoming melee before you even consider it. I would think that the damage reduction is meant to make it an emergency cool down to use while soloing, or in world pvp but not for tanking.
