I've been tanking for 2+ years now...I think the prot tree needs some love, as dps and threat from all the other classes have scaled well off the scale while Warrior threat output still relies on static values, except for a couple of moves.Casters stack +spell crit and get massive +damage/healing bonuses, our threat output scales whenever we get a new sword. Or we can sacrifice a lot of stamina so we can try to maximize shield slam hits, and spend a lot of time as a ghost.In addition, as I'm getting better and better gear, its becoming more difficult for me to tank anything outside of a raid instances. Even in my DPS gear, I can't do normal instances anymore (for the guildies) unless I actually remove armor, and then my DPS is gimped because I lose bonuses. Rage generation is getting to be a problem, even with Anger Management, Focused Rage, and reduced costs for Sunder and Heroic strike.I'm afraid that Warriors aren't scaling terribly well at this point, and we may go back soon to the Dark Times where PUGs are turning away warrior tanks for druids.
