I think the issue most warriors have is that they are the least flexible of all the tanking classes, its not an issue of jealousy, of other classes infringing on their turf, it is an issue of having diminished importance in one area with seemingly no hints at equivalent compensation in others.

Feb 11th 2008 7:08AM The removal of crushing blows would not render druid tanks overpowered, neither are warriors necessarily forced to stack avoidance. Warriors are more effective at stacking avoidance considering that defense rating is more beneficial to a warrior then a druid with the parry factor.
Don't underestimate the importance of block value to a warrior or paladin tank.
A tank with decent block value blocks for about 1,000 of a melee attack. On a mob that hits for 10,000, this is quite an effective mitigation (10% mitigation on top of armor mitigation).
