"I don't play a Blood Tank, do my disagreement may be uninformed."Alas, it apparently is. The Holy Shield change (note the lack of words like nerf or buff) is pretty irrelevant to DK issues.Also, Vengeance is a factor of incoming damage not altered by absorb shields or blocking, and DKs have similar (not identical) actual avoidance, as in parry and dodge, as other plate tanks. Not that Threat matters in any realistic way. Which is also why there's no saving Death Strikes for high-damage situations. (I'm also not sure why you have to use all of your taunts as a paladin. But this isn't the proper medium for that discussion).Disease upkeep is just one of many issues involved. The application of diseases in itself is fine. The fact that you have to choose between them and mastery-based mitigation, that is not fine.
