Other Tank Specs: "Am i a joke to you?"
Veng DH FTW :)
Author here.I missed out a crucial detail on the Legion memory lane, which is that Bone Shield back then worked as a pseudo-absorb (and therefore counted in the DS window calculations). This also led to a much stronger Death Strike than we know today, as it was also given the chance to "crit" for 8% extra DR (well, pseudo-absorb) via Skeletal Shattering and this could be doubled when playing Spectral Deflection, something which happened a lot in cutting edge content. All this damage that used to be a factor in the DS window is no longer present in BfA, and was not replaced in any way.

I miss the old Frost/Blood tank tree and omnidirectional Howling Blast. Boss to slap? Howling Blast. Adds to kite? Howling Blast. Howling Blast? Howling Blast.
it doesnt matter what tank you play in raiding. idk why people think it does. all 6 tanks can clear mythic with ez. same for tanks in keys under like 24
As someone who doesn't raid at all (or do anything else challenging) but does have a blood DK for tooling around the place and soloing stuff, this was absolutely fascinating. Thank you.
this doesnt mean anything to 99% of wow players, though, who will never push CE or 20+ keysAny combination of tank/dps/heals is viable for all keys to 15, normal and heroic raids.Let the nerds be nerds, rest of you, play what you enjoy!90% of the people who bluster on about "viability" have never experienced harder content than heroic/10 keys anywayits all a joke :)
Ah yes, solo tanking Heroic Garrosh as BDK. Good times.
