Tell me, do you feel tanky in defensive stance now? Cause I don't with 69% res.
You have to think of it relative to other classes. In the case of warriors, you would go from Dstance(25% damage reduction) to a 10% reduction(Bstance). So once a warrior finally left Dstance, he would still be taking reduced damage when compared to most. And would also be doing... a lot of damage. In some sense, It just wouldn't feel like the warrior was making himself that vulnerable.
I mean, it seems to be blizzards thing with these damage reduction with melee now(making it possible for you to be caught/give up damage). Rogues have feint which they can be caught w/o, DKs might not just sit in blood 100% now and warriors need to stance dance to put out good pressure.
In short, it's a trade off to have a damage reduction. And blizzard wants you to be exposed at some times. Which is fine. I know that 10% wasn't a lot, and warriors could still easily be killed through it. Just would seem.. over the top to have a 25% reduction to survive stuns/burst then a 10% reduction while you're going crazy with damage.
Still, I hope they change our 4-piece to something else. Maybe something to give us more utility.
