Surprisingly I've seen little issue with my DK, both in tanking and DPSing. I don't know if I stumbled upon good speccing and glyphing by happenstance, at least for lvl80 content, or what exactly I may have lucked into, but I tank for DPS ranging anywhere from 5.6k-6.4k gearscore on my 5.9k gearscore DK, and I'm holding threat well, unless someone else pulls groups when both DnD and Blood Boil are on cd. Single target threat hasn't been an issue at all, even through a fight like Ymiron in UP with lock dots all over the place. Similarly, in my frost dps spec, I'm pulling at least as much as I used to, if not a little more. My DK is Pfinferno on Kel'thuzad.

Similar experiences here as well. My DPS in both Frost (2H AND DW) and Unholy remains more or less unchanged for me from Pre to Post patch. And after tanking a bit last night, I found no issue holding threat except for one pull when the mage unleashed hell before I got my blood boil off.

After a little work with a training dummy unbuffed, I feel fairly confident in saying that my frost DW dps has actually seen a significant increase. I'm pretty happy with this patch, at least for DKs, it just takes a little bit of work to be honest. I do have another DK tank friend who is having trouble, though he was a frost tank so he's adjusting to blood. I think in many cases its just a matter of determining the proper speccing and glyphing, though clearly some things either will require some attention from blizzard, or are simply balanced around 85 instead of 80.
