There's a lot more to warrior aggro management and warrior tanking in general than just sunder armor. There's Revenge, an instant attack after you dodge, block, or parry an enemy attack which is also high threat. There's Disarm, which is high threat and obviously serves as a debuff. There's Shield Bash, which is high threat and interrupts casting (very important). There's Shield Block and Shield Wall, which increase block percentages for a brief time so you can get in a Revenge to increase threat. There's Demoralizing Shout, which can be used to gain initial aggro and is also a nice attack power debuff. There's Cleave, Sweeping Strikes, and Whirlwind, which allow a warrior to fight multiple enemies at once to keep multiple enemies aggro. That's not even getting into swicthing stances efficiently to maintain aggro and raise DPS.To say that Warriors are designed around Sunder Armor is somewhat true since that is a main tool in aggro management because it's cheap and effective and it stacks. But a good warrior tank uses lots more than just Sunder. But to your credit, you did admit you didn't know everything about them. Now you know more ;)
