@ toddcoreBreaking news: A Fury warrior specced for Titan's Grip using two-handed weapons AND a shield ISN'T a TANK. Its a Fury warrior with a 51 pt dps talent carrying a shield. Can you pretend your a tank? sure. Should you? Not if you don't want the party/raid to laugh at you as you fail. So again, this weapon is meant for DK's to use not a lawl tank Fury warrior.

A good player can "pretend" to fury tank through the level 80 instances. They're not that hard. I don't know how well you'd perform in heroics with a spec like that, but it'll get you through all the normal mode content if you're having a hard time finding tanks and don't want to respec.

I have now tanked every heroic except for Utgarde Pinnacle as a 18/53/0 fury warrior using a 2h and a shield. Pinnacle asks a little too much of a healer: I'd spec prot for that just to treat them nicely. But everything else, I can tank just fine as full fury.

i seen fury warriors tanked 4h on heroic mode it requires a lot of healing but the way our guild does it it dosnt matter anyway since they die way too fast so healer's dont have to be spamming hl for a long time.

Yeah, I'm going to have to go with "I can tank fine while specced Fury, at least through the normal instances". Am I specced specifically for tanking? Not really. I mean, no, I'm not. Can I tank perfectly well in this setup? You bet. Only caveat, you're going to have to go "old school" - DPS has to follow markings, and go a bit slow on the AoE, at least for the first 15 seconds or so of the fight. Maybe throw in some CC, if really necessary (shouldn't be, but can't hurt to utilize that option). Works more than fine.
