    Re: Death Knights will tank as Blood in Cataclysm

    Glad to see this change.

    Hopefully this will make balancing dk tanks without making DKs retardedly overpowered in pvp much easier. (not saying they are overpowered now, just that they were overpowered when they didn't such at tanking.)

    Re: Death Knights will tank as Blood in Cataclysm

    absolutely bloody disgusting

    i've been blood dps right from the get go, and this is wrong, if i didn't love my DK so much i'd abandon her right now (or maybe when cata comes out), now i have to switch to a dps playstyle i dislike

    Wait, does this mean feral is getting screwed too?

    If you want to dps as a druid you have to go boomkin? -screams-

    Maybe they can finally add a bit of spice to the rotation then.

    Because currently my dps rotation is very similar to my tanking rotation, which I find dulls the experience...a lot.

    Oh and the bit about some dks were jealous of protection cooldowns-- Since when? And why would they be? Ours>theirs. This is obviously a bogus opinion injected into this explanation to try to make us feel better, since we all know the real reason they are limiting it to one tree is b/c they are throwing in the towel.

    As a Frost DK tank who tanks in ICC 10 and 25, I'm not sold on the idea unless they can give you the option in the blood tree to Dual Wield with appropriate talents to boot.

    I only hope they can still give us the awsomeness which is a Howling Blast like talent in blood for tanking, cause that shiet is awsome.

Good move blizz

    Re: Death Knights will tank as Blood in Cataclysm

    I like the decision for only 1 spec, but why blood? Players are used to Frost, and Ice just makes sense as a tanking type. Which is the harder substance: blood or ice? Hm...

    I expect they have a reason for blood, I have no idea what it could be though.

    I don't find having similar rotations/abilities makes it dull, but it does mean it can take me a while to notice if I'm using the wrong talent spec...

    Re: Death Knights will tank as Blood in Cataclysm

    Great change tho I would rather make it frost, since they seem bit more armored and bulky, and they could Dw tanking weapons?

    damn.. when i just thought of a good tanking/soloing spec this comes up :-\

    Re: Death Knights will tank as Blood in Cataclysm

    Awesome. I love tanking, i have 3 of the 4 tanking classes (though my druid is currently balance/resto i spent all of BC as a feral tank) but the only reason WHY i hadn't yet done a DK tank was exactly because of the reason they mentioned, there's tank and dps talents mixed in all three trees. That really turned me off for some reason. Additionally, i wanted to be blood-spec, so the fact that blood will be THE tanking tree... it makes me much more interested in leveling a DK alt.

    used to frost? any good DK tank, in high end-game raiding guilds raids as blood, it's far superior with it's self-healing and cooldowns then frost -.-

    Which players exactly? Blood has been the superior end-game tanking tree for Death Knights since Ulduar. This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

    Also, WOOOHOOOOOOO!!!

    Although Unholy has always been my favorite spec, this will make things much better balance wise for DKs. It was a good experiment with the 3 trees, but sticking to what works seems the better way to go about it this time.
