I agree with that, in terms of PvP. And i have no clue why it does, but the general consensus is that defense/shield/absorb (the three big stats in all tanking armor) are fairly useless in terms of PvP as most abilities don't proc any of those. And while it's true that you don't get the same DPS as a deception or madness build, a hybrid build with some darkness in it boasts a fair amount of increased survivability with a median DPS than any single spec build. As it stands, hybrid tanksins are the best DPS tankish classes for PvP (with great utility too if you add in the pull)
