My problem? If tanks can consistantly match and more often out perform a pure dps class or dps spec what does that mean for the dps in our raid or dungeon?
and then you continue the post inmediatly with:
The bottom line is, a situation like that will devalue the majority of players. .... etc etc.
my question is. Do YOU realize how theres a sentence missing on your post? you are missing the part were you explain exactly what does "that" mean...
it means nothing, you still need dps, because a tank that doesnt have a rolling Vengance stacked cant DPS. previously you had tanks at the bottom, now you have them in the middle. regardless of where they are, pople like YOU
need to understand that they ARE TANKS. they are not dps, and even if a tank tops a chart like it happens on aoe fights, the best dps is still the first dps listed, not the tank. if you are comparing your dps to a tank myfried, you are doing it WRONG. tanks cant help but AOE even whent the encounter mechanics requiere DPS to focus fire, tanks have 100% uptime, and they get a monster ammount of free DPS in the form of vengance.
and no firestyle thats not how vengance works. you cant even keep 2 tanks at full vengance, you should read on how the buff works, its not a set ammount of AP. it degrades.

Tanks depend on [Vengeance] for their ridiculous damage, which means they need to actively be tanking mobs to put out those numbers. Blood DKs will not be taking DPS slots in raids because having >2 tanks (or >1 in some cases) doesn't leave enough incoming damage to build sufficient [Vengeance].

exactly, the problem is a psychological one. if people wont stop looking at recount to measure their performance, then they need to understand that top DPS is, and will allways be, the top D-P-S. tanks are on another category,a nd if on a two tank fight the two tanks want to compare their dps, then great. (that said, blizz needs to buff prot palas)
