I heartily second everything you've written here. It's like Blizzard isn't even listening. Don't any of them play Prot Warriors?

To help warriors with their threat, couldn't they have Thunder Clap cost no rage and just be on a cool-down, much like a paladin's Consecrate? That might help with threat.

consecrate costs nothing? holy shit, where the hell did all my mana go then? consecrate costs mana, a LOT of mana. L2Pally

mtsadowski: That's a terrible idea.(1) It's one of our exactly three AOE threat abilities (Thunder Clap, Shockwave, Damage Shield), and it's the ONLY one that's 360 and active (i.e., I trigger it myself vs. being a passive effect)--putting it on a longer CD is not good.(2) The problem with threat generation is that Rage is currently really spiky--either you're rage-starved or overflowing. Making a single ability free isn't going to fix that.(3) It's pretty rare that I don't have the Rage to TC when I need it.(4) TC isn't a Warrior tank's biggest threat-generator (not on single targets like bosses, anyway).(5) Warrior threat isn't the biggest problem right now--DPS, reliance on Block, etc. are all bigger concerns. And changing TC isn't going to fix that.
