PROT in TBC is fun and it is a lot better than it ever was in the past. With the right gear and spec you will out threat your entire raid. Most warriors don't understand the HUGE value of shield block value (that causes your shield slams to scale by bigger hit - 2k shield slams are not hard to get at all anymore and that is more threat in one single attack than anything else in the game). Shield block RATING is useless and I see so many tanks stacking that for god knows what reason. Visit www.evilempireguild.org/guides/ if you want to see the math behind this. I do 300+ dps on Gruul with the right setup. This includes picking up Cruelty, 1H spec and Shield Mastery to scale up your damage/threat.Spamming devestate on anything is not gimmicky and not sure how you think so. The only thing that limits this attack is the global cooldown and is intended to be spammed.....but it is only worthwhile to do so if you apply a few sunders while grinding. Your damage will be terrible if you don't do so. Allowing a tank in a 10 man fight with no threat issues to do that much damage to push past rogues and locks shows just how powerful this attack is with the right gear and buffs.
