The tanking 4pcs hint at a massive amount of raid damage. Lovely.

The tanking 4pcs are somewhat unequal though. The Blood one is OP as hell in a 25man with two resto druids.

Yeah, but the 2pc encourages the "it might be bad to heal the DK tank" problem that I hate. This is why DK tanks and resto Druids go very badly together...

Which is to say, the resto druid healing model consists of an overhealing strategy with very little mitigation or absorption. Meanwhile, the DK model consists of self-healing, and does better by doing so. Basically, if a DK tank is healing it means I didn't do well enough. Except he should be healing... It messes me up. I mean, I guess if you kept the tank hovering around 35%, this could very well be OP... but it would require incredible tandem as to when to stop hovering and jump the health back to safe levels. Definitely something not to be done with a resto druid, methinks.

I knew there had to be a catch on that beautiful feral 4pc. Sigh. Now I don't get to decide when to pop my FR for myself, I pop it for the raid. This is the same problem we had with warriors and Last Stand / Raid Stand.

Bella, I mean this in the best way possible, but resto druids worrying about overhealing are like feral druids worried about doing too much bleed damage.It's what they do. Their "mitigation" is "out-healing", which leads to over-healing, and that's fine.

@BellajtokThe DK 2 piece (not anywhere near final, I might remind you) effectively means that if you've got either a frost or unholy rune, or Blood Tap off cooldown, you can Death Strike if your health just dipped below 35%. If the tank is always topped off, he won't need the set bonus... and if he just went from full health to sub-35% in no time flat, that's gonna be a very impressive heal and shield.

Okay, okay, I got it. Yeesh. Just once, I'd like to bitch a little and have people agree with me.
