Good Druid tanks had been switching to cat to dps when not tanking since vanilla, and up until MoP, that was how we were expected to play. Suddenly at the end of Cata this practice went from being considered normal to considered OP and our versatility was gutted for MoP. So please tell me why now it is completely acceptable for Warriors to gain what we lost for WoD? For those who don't know what I'm talking about, this is Gladiator Stance:
Gladiator's Resolve (Protection) - Increases the damage reduction provided by Defensive Stance by 5%.
Also allows you to forgo your defensive role, and instead focus only on offensive capabilities, by replacing Battle Stance with Gladiator Stance. Gladiator Stance - A dauntless combat stance. Increases physical damage dealt by 20%, and replaces your Shield Block with Shield Charge. You cannot change into or out of this stance during combat.
20 Rage, 10 yd range, Instant, 15sec recharge, Requires Shields
Raise your shield and charge a short distance to your target, increasing the damage of Shield Slam, Revenge, and Heroic Strike by 30% for 6 sec. Maximum 2 charges.
It is essentially quite similar to Bear-Cat, especially when you take into account that ALL tanks will be using dps gear in WoD. Yes, they can not change in or out of the stance during combat, but they also do not need to worry about changing specs, glyphs, or gear to utilize this either. I know most people don't care, I know for years I detested being a Bearcat and often forced into the OT role because of it but 'the grass isn't always greener', and I miss Feral being one spec. We gained absolutely nothing in the split, but lost our versatility and our identity imo.
