Yep. Overall, death knight tanks have seen the least change in the transition to the MoP beta and are probably weathering this better than anyone than perhaps paladins. I'm told their "active mit" tool does a crap ton of damage, whereas Shield Block and SD/Frenzied Regen obviously don't. However, there have been a number of players who've asked whether the DK tanking model is the one to go for when DK tanks have never quite equaled warrior/paladin popularity. So the question then becomes -- what is really driving tank popularity, and is it a good idea to shift all four (now five) tanks to the mechanics that govern one of the less-played?Having said that, I think Blizzard's correct that active mitigation really could be the model to aim for here -- it's a good way to keep tanks engaged in an era where threat shouldn't be a hassle -- but this is the earliest part of the beta with what is likely to be the clumsiest iteration of that idea.
