It's very possible that the "all runes for DS" element of DKs won't survive the MoP transition, since they want to expand the "active mitigation" ethic, making the OB choice of tier one less cut and dry.If they are going back to LK style dungeons, I can see roiling blood being an invaluable tool for trash.Furthermore, if I recall, OB is still on a one minute cooldown, in this iteration, and roiling blood is a refresher of diseases, of even a single target, for a single blood rune. There may be a point where the difference between the two choices (as it relates to "death strikes dealt") is so minimal that they really are just flavorful options, as is intended.Now, if they ever tie DS's effectiveness to diseases-on-target again... that's another story.As a non-raiding, blood tanking 5-man (and eventually PVE scenario) lover, roiling blood is just too awesome for my priorities and playstyle to pass up.

"It's very possible that the "all runes for DS" element of DKs won't survive the MoP transition, since they want to expand the "active mitigation" ethic, making the OB choice of tier one less cut and dry."That's a fair point. However, it's always to your benefit to have diseases up. So, since Roiling Blood actually requires you to have a decent sized pack of adds, you won't take it except on maybe 5mans or fights like H Rhyolith 25man, where you happen to be the fragment tank. (Because having my Blood Boil automatically spread diseases, as opposed to having to work out diseases and then use Pestilence is a pain.) But for most fights, where you generally don't deal with a lot adds as a tank, you will probably pick up Outbreak.
