The single best thing Blizzard could do for warriors would be to give them some ability to mimic what prot pallies can do in the warrior prot tree. It would also, if they were low enough in the prot tree and set up right, possibly double to help partial-prot warriors tank in 5-mans.Basically lower level prot talents to duplicate retribution aura (but obviously only on the war himself) and to add the chance to passive do damage to any mob you block. The actual damage done would be very minor of course, just like it is for prot pallies, but the net impact would be that a prot warrior getting hit by more things would do more damage (ie. play into their core strength). The added threat from this damage (plus t-clap) would really boost warriors' ability to tank multiple mobs in 5-mans.Then, deeper in prot, you add talents that have a small chance to partially heal the warrior every time they hit something in melee or they block something with their shield. Once again, nothing *huge*, but a small amount each time with enough things hitting them can simulate Reckoning+JoLight, at least a bit. These things don't translate into making pallies better main tanks, so it seems reasonable to me they probably wouldn't unbalance prot warriors. Putting the "heal thyself" talent deep in prot keeps the DPS warriors from getting it, and gives warriors a measure of improved soloability the same as paladins.Besides, with prot pallies getting buffed to handle MT duties, it seems only reasonable to me that prot warriors get a small measure of what pallies can do.At least, that's this balance druid's opinion.Korek (Tauren Doomkin of Steamwheedle Cartel)
