35% Mitigation Tax

82 Human Death Knight
Tanks in PvP is an iffy subject. Many people see them as an OP spec who can mitigate too much damage and according to quite a few posts, Out DPS pures.

However, some people enjoy protection PvP for what it is. Should we out DPS any DPS class? No.

My thought? Aa 35% Mitigation tax. Meaning that a tank should do 65% of a DPS classes damage in PvP

Example- Mortal Strike for Arms warrior hits for let say 10k. Than a shield slam should hit for 6.5k. A mages frost bolt hits for 15?k(Im not sure what they are doing at 85) Than a Avengers shield should for 8.5k(Estimate)

Does this seem fair? Just want to get some peoples opinions.

There's no need to put an exact percentage on it as long as both specs are balanced overall in both PvE and PvP. In fact, staying to a set "tax" would probably conflict with that goal of balance.

Honestly, my concern is tanks hitting too little.

From reports on beta tanks are hitting for 10% of DPS specs with vengence.
