DK tank active shield vs. Pally/Warrior passive shield

Recently there was some discussion about how shield block is a passive ability vs. the DK blood shield which is an active ability.  Personally I like the fact that BS is something I can use whenever I choose.  Sure shield block is passive and for some that may translate to easy mode.  I admit I lean towards that description.  I'm not slamming warriors or paladins I just think it means they have one less button to push.  It's more a matter of play style, than which may or could be better.

Feel free to take a look over at MMO-Champion and read the discussion for yourself.

DK Tank 4.0.6 changes

Hello!

Below I've briefly gone over the DK tank changes for 4.0.6.

Bone Shield 4 charges now instead of 3 (win).

Blood Shield now stacks (win).  Could we stack this now as high as  60k or 100k?  The possibilities appear to be endless.  I know after grabbing and keeping threat I will be virtually spamming Death Strikes to keep this shield up.  Also Death Strikes damage got a buff which helps threat and means even more spamming of Death Strikes.

IBF now breaks stuns and provides immunity to them (win).  Halfus fight anyone?  This should help out here.

Here is the spec I'm using now. 31/6/4

This is not a change to the DK but I felt I should explain I do not use blood parasite.  I just don't see much benefit in only a 10% chance to proc this and then it does not heal for very much.

Thx
