Our guild uses myself as MT and a blood dk as a OT. We're going into heroic ds. This guy is almost harassing me with whispers about how there's NO WAY this tank combination will work because one of the tanks NEEDS a shield. We just don't have a BLOCK and therefore will fail miserably on heroic modes and even if we do get through we make healers mana die quickly. He's also going on how our tier bonuses (4 piece set) isn't as good as others. Either we can drop the feral (me) or the DK and replace one of us with a paladin (which he happens to be gearing to tank).
Please, for the love of thrall, give me 20,000 reasons why this makes NO SENSE so I can give them all to him and tell him to shut it! I've scanned the forums and have found a FEW things but would really love to have some updated information. If there is any way i could get hold of real theorycrafting, statistics, or combat logs, throw anything you have at me. I need concrete information!
