from what i understood, it will drop tier pieces

not that the piece you actually need will drop, so why worry about it?

if it doesnt drop teir, wtf will he drop?
pvp gear that no one really wants by the time it drops anyway?

that has always annoyed me as both a pvper and pve'er
i have to do pve on my pvp toon in order to get a chance at loot, or i have to do pvp, or pray my faction pulls thier head outta thier ass, to get access to another raid

So, I wonder if the patch was being delayed anyway, or if this is a response to the other part of the PvP complaint, that they didn't get 2 weeks notice?

Whoever is supposed to let the CMs know about the PvP stuff keeps dropping the ball...

Last time, it was the existence of new pvp gear available for JP, now its the reset? Someone needs to shape up

It can drop the 397 VP Head, Chest and Gloves.

Before Baradin Hold was a saving of VP, can still continue to be.

They should make it drop Tier Helm and Shoulders just to fuck with people.

So uh... The big tank changes for DK's.... Blood Shield always happens, and armor boost? That it?

And those are not big changes? Or am I missing something since reducing spike damage when blood shield isn't active and reducing the dependency on threat stats for blood shield seem rather huge.

No, I'm not trying to say that they aren't huge changes. I'm saying, I thought I was missing a change, and I was.

I forgot about blade barrier's change.

The Blood Shield change is huge. Maybe now I will feel comfortable taking the axe next time shannox drops it. (the last time it dropped the 4.3 changes hadn't been announced, and the 359 is better until 4.3)

I'm not sure if I can quantify the armor change yet. The scaling on armor, being what it is, I'm unsure how much of a damage reduction it will be. I'm pretty happy that I will have an armor number that "feels" like a tank for sure.
