    Sooo, where do Blood DK tanks lie now?

    after our mitigation nerf and now Blood Boil stealth nerf...
    (Incidentally, it looks like Druids took a big hit in their Mastery as well. Less health, but more importantly, loss of attack power and threat)

    Hmm well for me on pre patch I haven't notice these nerfs too much. I am still A1 tank and people don't have an issue healing me.
    I notice the slight damage nerf but I am still able to top charts certain pulls/fights and I don't feel any weaker than I originally did.

    Could be wrong at 110.

    nvm just saw the blood boil nerf. Testing later will let you know. Seems suckish saying they just nerfed heartstrike. SMH

    Yea just did some googlefu...wtf???? 50% nerf?

    So we have the mobility of Stephen Hawking, our self healing is outclassed by DH's, and now our DPS is average at best?

    Getting easier and easier for me to switch to my Prot Warrior full time.

    Someone predicted this last week. They'll nerf HS and after a week they'll realise that HS wasn't the problem, nerf blood boil and won't buff HS and keep it as is.

    At least blizzard is showing us time and time again their current DK class designer is an idiot. You'd think after 14 months of a useless tier set and class trinket they'd replace that person.

    I realize Skullflower is working on something unrelated, but he really should get up and slap the other guy doing DK design out of his cubicle.

    That's what I don't get, they just upped DH damage too.

    Are they simply trying to shift the playerbase over?

    But boy are we slow at delivering our mediocre damage!!!

    See, this is just further proof that Blizzard wants all DK's to be unholy. Hero classes will have one or two specs! Demon hunters will probably keep two, but DK's will be one and that one is Unholy.

    I have mistwalker on this char, I refuse to reroll. They could make me do 5 damage and I would still refuse

    I am getting WoD flashbacks already

    Eh, I'm not as invested.

    I love my DK. Had a lot of fun and good times trolling my raid group. But when I'm looking at the pros/cons of each tank for raid progression, I don't see much advantage in taking the DK when I can take a Warrior with a better toolkit, or DH, since they pretty much have all our old toolkit nowadays...

    Warriors wont get nerfed because they are the "real" tanks and DH will just be buffed over and over because they are blizzards new pet child even though they literally are just warriors in terms of mechanics.

    If you want a real tanking experience play warrior. will literally never change. DK damage or survivability were not a problem and both have been nerfed. Warriors do good damage and have over the top survivability and havent been touched.

    Ahhh the Hyperbole brand of whine. Outstanding choice, sir.
    I'm not a defender of Blizzard, I'm an opponent of stupid.

    The things that matter are still there. They did WAY too much damage with Bloodboil so it needed to be nerfed.
    The self healing is what makes them OP, and they still are very much OP.
    Still the best tank for 5 man progression and very strong for Mythic raiding.
