    It's hard to think of many horror stories on my end, and I've done many PuGs.
    Maybe it all just blends in with the learning process of how to carry random groups.

    The only remotely recent one I...

    Just to throw out a very quick and simple observation, skipping over a lot of the details, semantics about how things will work, and any belly-aching nonsense....

    This is where the changes to healing come in, they affect tanks as well. Significantly, I'd say.

    Tanks will no longer be two-shot if we don't receive heals, it'll take several hits to bring us...

    The benefits of stacking stamina are very well defined at this point, but I agree on the point that the focus is a little too heavy on the stat. Yes, it is necessary to stack stam to survive the...

    Warrior tanks don't need an advantage.
    We get things done no matter the odds.


    Just who the hell do you think we are?!!

    We are warriors.
    We are badass.

    Here's my general priority list for tank stats:

    1. Uncrittable vs Raid Bosses -- 540 Defense, or just the right buff/stance/presence/form in Cata.
    2. "Enough" Effective Health (EH) -- You need...

    One of my professors a couple years back (taking engineering by the way) actually had some sagely advice regarding this sort of thing, something which I think you're overlooking:

    We're quite aware of that, but remarking on the fact that warriors appear to have some form of compensation in the form of simply being a blast to actually play in combat.
    When you think about it,...

    Quite frankly, I think there should be more instances like H HoR.

    I suppose that does make me sound like a bit of a masochist, but there are a few good reasons. Tanking every single other heroic...

    It's easy to understand a certain amount of apprehension regarding DK tanking, quite a few people aren't looking forward to Blood tanking either because they really enjoy Frost tanking and/or simply...
  12. How could or should the Blood tanking be made more interesting for Cataclysm?

    We've seen the class previews, we've seen some of the new abilities. But as of yet, very few details about one of the the primary concerns about death knight tanking (for me at least) has yet to be...

    It is true that warriors do lack "fun" out-of-combat abilities.
    On the bright side, they do have more "fun" in-combat abilties.

    It's a bit of a trade off, you just have to put up with it.
    You...

    The Scent for Blood talent actually does provide a stacking buff, based on experience on my own DK. It seems to be a maximum of three charges, so investing three points in it provides you the full...

    Not completely convinced about Blood tanking yet, they've yet to address the playstyle concerns, which I would say are the main issue for me. Blood is un-fun, I couldn't care less if it's going to be...

    Alright, I'm actually quite thrilled about many of these changes. The full scope definitely has to be considered though, because there are some nerfs in there.... but justified ones.

    Now given some time to digest the information, I suppose it's not quite so horrible that Blood has been chosen as the tank tree. I'll hold back on declaring Death Knight tanking "Ruined FOREVER"...

    And this is probably why you're meeting such strong opposition, those "unnecessary complications" are often the dominant aspects of tanking (and possibly healing as well). Now compared to DPS where...

    I too have heard this, and I'm not looking forward to it for my DK. Mostly the fact that I don't like blood spec nor do I like dual-wielding (personal preferrence). If it were up to me, I'd make...

    There are times when AotD is useful and times when it isn't.
    The general rule of thumb is if the boss/mob has a directional attack, but I'll look at a few of the situations.
