There was a time when the best tanking tree changed from patch to patch.To quote the linked blog post:"We’ve seen the rise and fall of Dual Wield Unholy.We’ve seen the rise and fall of Mastery-Heavy Frost Presence using Dual Wield Frost builds, mostly because of GCD locking and the BoTN change.We’ve seen the ghoul start off being Unholy’s highest portion of damage, had it nerfed severely, and then had Scourge Strike eclipse that.We’ve seen Mastery go from a near worthless stat for Unholy DKs to becoming a high priority stat after Haste. More re-gearing.Today, we’re seeing the rise of Shadowfrost 2.0, a Frost spec that emphasizes spamming Howling Blast and skipping Obliterate completely."All of that happened in the span *of one patch*. But we're not allowed to say we're on a roller coaster because we haven't been riding it for as long.As a Paladin I only really had to concern myself with massive changes in playstyle when transitioning to a new expansion.
