    Druid is doing better IMO, I just went and soloed a few bits I normally solo, and Normally one boss because of stacking dmg I would get quite low on HP, and have to use defensive cooldowns a lot, this time with the new changes i ended the fight at full HP, that was without using cooldowns, Not sure if that helps you, But that's the only one I've played

    I just played my druid as well for the first time since winter. Tanked some dungeons to grind valor, justice points to honor points. A lot easier it feels and im in 463-476 gear.

    Because blizzard made the absolutely retarded decision that haste should be a plate wearers primary tank stat. Since sanctity of battle reduces cooldowns and increases attack speed. It allows a tankadin to have a near 100% uptime of Shield of the righteous, which is about a 50-60% DR depending on mastery. Tankadins ideally shouldn't be dodging, parrying, or blocking, they don't do tank like things anymore. We have become glorified DPS and I would rid myself of sanctity of battle in a heartbeat so that we can stand apart from the DPS.

    That being said, the proactive tanking is nice; but I am not a fan of it's implementation.

    From what i could see right now BrM still do insane amount of damage, you could replace 2 dps for 1 BrM tank. Even fistweaver monks can pull off 100k dps while still healing like a bos, i can understand the notion that everyone should be in the dps charts but that just insane.
