Buff Time!

According to a Blue post from yesterday, one of the assorted undocumented hotfixes from this week was a buff to Death Knight tanks! From the post:

Death Knight:
  • Frost Presence now provides 8% Stamina, up from 6% Stamina.

  • Icebound Fortitude now provides 30% base damage reduction, up from 20% damage reduction. For a geared tank with high defense, this translates to 50% damage reduction, up from 40%.

The interesting thing about the Frost Presence buff at the moment is that, if you have Improved Frost Presence, it's still only applying the 6% when in Blood or Unholy Presence. This gives you a very easy way to check how much of a difference that 2% makes. For me, in my 10-mans-and-badges gear, it was an increase of 490 HP. Presumably this will be rectified at some point, but for now it gives an easy point of comparison.
