Ah, tank history. Yes, in BC you were expected to get 490 defense (to push crits off the table) and, if you weren't a druid, 102.4% miss+dodge+parry+block. Why 490 defense for the shield tanks? Because Holy Shield and Shield Block had a finite number of charges, as well as cooldowns, and you weren't getting uncrushable (and, incidentally, push whatever crit may have been left off the table, too) without them. Druids, on the other hand, were stuck not only with very few options for getting their 490 defense, but had no choice but to eat crushing blows with their ginormous amounts of armor and health.
