How can people be happy with dks?

The changes to blood tap, and taking it away as a baseline ability is crap
Our glyphs are a joke
Most of our talents are a joke
Taking away hunger cold is complete bs, our only cc now is a stun, which is a talent that replaces one of our key abilities
DW frost is like hitting with a wet noodle

I feel like a squishy pre-MoP warlock now.

DKs got the shaft hard this expansion. How can ANYONE be happy with them in their current state? Honest question. Maybe I just suck.
I'm happy, destroying anyone and everyone in pvp as unholy, and tanking is still as easy as ever.
Our glyph's are lack luster; I wasn't impressed with any of them. That being said, complaining about balance in the post-patch pre-expansion era is common but really nothing can be done. The mantra of "Wait for MoP" sucks, but it is what it is.

And what Dilox said: <3 Blood.
Well, I don't like how frost is despite its insane oblit crits as 2hand, I just don't like how it's designed atm. I feel like Unholy is amazing though, and Blood tanking is even easier now. Things may be different come MoP seeing as this is all scaled to lv90 not 85.

Maybe I just suck.

It's fine, l2p.
I started this guy to try out tanking with DK and loving it so far. I think I'll go Unholy with my dps spec, which I haven't really even used yet:)

What you just said, is articulate, it is intelligent, and it is logical. There's not a thing wrong with what you just said and god bless you for claiming that right.
I enjoy my glorious Obliterate being used frequently in PvP again, the new Blood Tap is amazing and we have a lot more survivability than we did before. I just haven't played most of the lame duck so I'm getting reamed because I did a terrible job at keeping up with what other classes got. xD

I agree. I guess we just have to accept that Blizzard only thinks Druids want to look cool.
I'm having a great time as pvp frost.. The new blood tap gives me death runes for necrotic strike stacking just fine and i'm topping the overall damage charts often *shrugs* I love it
I notice you use the word "our" and awful lot, yet you seem to be a level 1 warrior that hasn't been logged in on in quite some time. Maybe if you post on your DK and explain your rotation/priority, people can critique you and help you out. As of right now, DW just barely tops out 2H, but the priority is different and the stat weights are different.

Just a thought.
I love my Frost. Always have.

DW was fun and lots of frost strike dmg. ;)
Sorry man, don't mean to be rude but, I have no problems with most classes as UH...
Just don't know why blizzard still didn't removed energy cost on Leap/Gnaw, and minimum range for leap... So simple...

Frost is still a litle squishy yet, but I think its intended to be that way. Only thing I would like to see is instant hunger back CCing 1 target only, and maybe a glyph making HB hit only 1 target too, so I could 3v3 with my fellow hunter without being afraid of breaking scatter-trap.

Other than that, out glyph aren't amazing and our lvl 90 talents either... (a 5 second to go, dispelable stun...) , but we are pretty good. Not mages, but still good imo.

I like remorseless. Have to consider its also a slow so we are on the target more as a frost, pounding away.

Love that. I do want that howling blast better but on the 1 target, it increases the damage? I mean its essentially a small nerf from a group to 1 target. :P or it provides some kind of bigger debuff?

also hungering would be nice ccing one target at range.
