I just want to be able to spend more than 26 points in a tree other than VK and not feel like all of my points are being wasted.
The diversity of the soul system sounds great from a distance, but in practice we are really pigeon-holed into a few specs because the mitigation is so poorly distributed among the trees. Why would you spec over 26 points into any of the trees other than VK? Every point after 26 is just fluff. Wasted points.
1) Base Mitigation should exist for every tank spec based on shared roots
2) Specialized mitigation should be acquired with deep investment into any given tank soul
3) If we cannot tank with 51pt specs of each warrior tanking soul when this patch goes live, it will be deemed a failure.
To me, this is the make-or-break patch. Tanking is what I do; if they don't deliver here, I will not be nearly as active with feedback or analysis because I will have learned directly that it's gone to waste. That's not a threat by any means. It is, however, the truth.
