Ok, so no offense, but this sort of statement is what makes other tanks respond with a tinge of umbrage. Currently (pre-PTR nerf) DKs are less squishy than warriors and pallies even without their CDs. You're saying that the importance of your CDs is that it allows you to succeed without having to worry as much about the abilities/gear of others. If you can explain to me what the difference is between "trivialize content" and "not have to worry about finding good healers" go ahead, but even then how do you justify that you'd prefer for DKs to keep the best CDs too because it "distinguishes" them. I'm sorry, but simply being the best at both normal mitigation, avoidance, HP, and CDs is not a "role", it's being handed easier success than other players, period. No it's not "god-mode" but it still means you get more success and depend less on the rest of the raid than other tanks, and that isn't balanced.
