@zappoI really agree with this. Back in vanilla, I played a warrior (my 2nd toon ever) up through the levels, I was spec'd Arms and using whatever gear I got from quests or drops, with the occasional crafted item from my smithing. I had no trouble tanking anything I wanted to, sub-60.Now I happen to be leveling a warrior again (I changed servers at one point in the interim), I'm prot this time, with enough time, knowledge, and disposable income to be geared in anything I want. I can still tank anything I've hit (lvl 44 as of now), but I feel comparatively OP'd doing it now. It really wasn't hard back in the day, and it's a helluva lot easier now.So, for Cyanea, I realize I'm saying something you already know here, but maybe solo with heirlooms and switch out pieces for tanking gear specifically when you're doing dungeons, and only swap the pieces that you actually have a tanking upgrade for. When I leveled a feral druid, I always maintained a set of healing gear, so that I could get groups more easily. Even if you don't, you can tank in the heirlooms alright anyway.
