@#13 - I agree with you completely. My warrior is only lvl 5x, however I am the only tank in my small guild. Because my guild is small, I run a lot of PuG's, unfortunately. It is very difficult to hold aggro (even with 5 sunders) against a dps class going nuts. Combine that with 3 dps classes on 3/4/5+ mobs (crazy mage), it makes it nearly impossible for a warrior to tank b/c it costs more rage than you can generate with a shield.(not to mention the ADD you need to see everyone's aggro gain) I did do a PuG with a pally the other day and he was pulling mobs off me like no ones business with consecration. Much grats to him for that, and I just wish thunderclap could compare...at all. IMO warriors can gain threat once every 6s with taunt, and hold it 'to a fair level' with sunders, but it is way to easy for anyone to pull aggro off, esp healers, since a heal is an aoe aggro gain. It is also most unfortunate that our good aoe aggro tool is on a 10min cooldown, but the discussion of cooldowns is for another day. (What other classes have 2-30min cooldowns again?)I will admit I am under-geared for my level, and not specced prot as I am still level grinding. (Tried arms, but will switch back to fury)Perhaps there is a more experienced warrior tank that can lend expertise. Or perhaps Blizz will give us tanking back AND make us a viable solo pvp candidate. (Please don't die laughing)
