Since tanks are wearing dps gear now due to the fact shield and absorption is completely useless in pvp, it's hard to say if this will be fixed or not...if at all!
Hey guys guess what:
Why? Because people run tank spec in DPS gear and play as if they were DPS and then complain that they do not feel like a tank.
If you actually played like a tank in tank gear.you would notice a drastic increase in survivability over DPS gear. Survival gear is not useless, its these complaining players that would rather whine than learn something that are useless.
