Prot pally grinding is way more fun than leveling retribution (once you get holy shield that is) to the point where I would recommend that as the main leveling build for paladins.Prot warriors are the only tanking class gimped by their spec, and thats not something that gear should adapt to. If they want prot warriors to be able to solo without changing gear and without screwing up end-game rage generation (IE: making it too easy) they will have to make changes to the protection tree.The difference with adding spell damage to healers' gear is that they won't be doing damage when they are casting a heal so the bonus doesn't screw up raiding difficulty. Warriors on the other hand already do some DPS while tanking. If they are given more, free DPS in the form of attack power or some other type of gear addition then blizz will eventually have to nurf something else to achieve tanking balance without making the game too easy.And yes, free epix are nice... but when blizzard can't produce raid zones fast enough to match the demand they will nurf progression by making mobs harder or lowering warrior threat. Its happened before and it will happen again.
