im tired of people complaining about heroic strike. we are warriors we are pure feral power(druids) or holy powerhouses(paladins) or unholy disease machines(DK). We don't tank with ultimate strength or power, we tank with precision and battle experience. we should be pushing more buttons. that's what warrior tanking is about. And realize, people such as the writer here, who macro HS to other abilities is lowering their threat because GC and Swing timers are very diff. i have my HS and Cleave on a seperate hand along with some more casual (less spammy) buttons on my right hand(mouse) and the spam abilities on my left hand (keyboard). in this way, tanking is much like playing the piano, both hands doing completely different things yet working together to make harmony. the day blizzard takes this away from me is the day i stop playing my warrior after 5years.

I'm sure you move out of defiles beautifully with both hands completely busy at all times.

Macroing HS doesn't hurt anyone's threat. Hell, macroing HS and Cleave doesn't hurt anyone's threat. No one has ever lost threat because they don't have to spam an on next melee strike ability. That's why the macro exists. I prefer to have my house hand free for movement and camera control. You don't, that's fine, but acting like hitting a button every second somehow improves your tanking ability is just silly elitism from someone who, frankly, barely even types coherently. I have a hard time imagining you hit that HS button reliably when shift and caps lock are beyond you.

I apologize for my poor use of the written English. Let me change my comment here to be more about myself and less about others. I have found a fun way to play with the current Heroic Strike mechanics. I feel this lets me play the class to it's initially intended style. I understand and feel the boredom that comes out of button spamming, but also enjoy meeting those demands to play at my best. Though, Heroic Strike is spam ability, it still has a certain complexity because of its swing timer mechanics. It feels like I am playing music when I tank, and I wonder if any others are like that, and enjoy it the same way.
