or u could roll a hybrid assassin or marauder still and output great dps while having multiple survival abilities
you'll live almost as long as a tank which much better dmg output

This is the truth, and if you think you really are all that much survivable because you "play properly", then think how much better you'd do with one of the favoured dps classes that have better survivability tools built in than any of the tank classes.
To the OP: Nothing has changed besides what you mentioned... TTK is lower, pure tank survivability has not changed besides the inevitable hp creep, which will give you about one extra autoattack worth of time.
