Last Stand vs. Survival Instincts - both do exactly the same thing, so total wash thereShield Wall vs Barkskin - 5 min/60% vs. 1 min/20% - It's a toss up depending on your tanking preferences but some would say a more frequently available (5 times as available) cooldown is a better one for raid fights today that require frequent tank swapping. Glyphed Shield Wall vs. Barkskin - 3 min/40% vs. 1 min/20% - Closer, but Barkskin is still looking better and it doesn't take a Major Glyph to get there.Glyphed and Talented Shield Wall vs. Barskin - 2 min/40% vs. 1 min/20% - Identical in overall damage reduction, but now you've taken 2 talent points and a Major Glyph to get it that way.Enraged Regen vs. Frenzied Regeneration - Both give 30% health over 10 seconds, but the Druid version costs some raged.. So technically it's inferior but in practice it's virtually identical.Shield Block vs.. well, nothing the Druids have. Maybe Savage Defense + Improved Leader of the Pack. Not exactly cooldowns but self healing and damage-absorption are both two very sweet tools to compensate for a lack of block/block-cooldown.4pt10 BonusDruid - Your Enrage ability no longer decreases your armor and instead decreases all damage taken by 12%, and the periodic damage done by your Rake ability can now be a critical strike.vs.Warrior - Your Bloodrage ability no longer costs health to use, and now causes you to absorb damage equal to 20% of your maximum health. Lasts 0 sec.Both create tanking cooldowns that would be better in different situations. They're basically a wash, depending on the fight.
