Out of all the moves Prot Warriors have that could be increased, I suspect the most likely candidates would be Thunder Clap, Shockwave, or Concussive Blow. Revenge is also likely, but I dunno if it'd be as likely as those other possibilities.I say Thunder Clap and Shockwave because Prot Warrior AOE threat could definitely use a buff. And with Concussive Blow, it's a 30 second cooldown that could use either a damage increase or a shorter cooldown. The problem with Con. Blow would be the possibility of adding another stun to the PVP Prot arsenal. Oh, and then there's Cleave and Heroic Strike, but as they're connected to other specs that, apparently, don't need fine-tuning in DPS at the moment, I don't think they'll add it.I'd say the most likely candidates would be Shockwave and Concussive Blow, seeing as how they're actually talents you get in the Prot tree and that would significantly reduce the chance of it affecting Arms or Fury.

*I meant a shorter cooldown stun in regards to Conc. Blow, not adding a complete stun altogether. We need editing features, WoW.com!

I read an idea on the forums yesterday that I liked:Allow Shockwave to be glyphed so that its cooldown is much shorter, the threat it produces is higher, but the stun effect is gone. Or how about shortening the cooldown on challenging shout? When it's on CD it takes four globals or more just to generate enough aggro pull a pack of mobs off the DPS that hit them before I did.As a new 80 warrior trying to learn to tank, AoE is very difficult to master, esp. in Heroics where the rest of the group expects speed. Inevitably I'm yelled at for not holding aggro on 12 mobs, which teaches me nothing, and I wind up having to just leave group :(

Not a chance they will buff shockwave or conc blow. The druid tears would be unbeliveable.I really the stun component. Easier to control the pack who is running for that AOE happy mage / lock.Taking the damage reduction componet from D stance would be a nice start.
