I'm having the same problem gearing my new level 80 prot warrior....noone takes him seriously and just bashes his GS and either leaves or kicks me from the group..i don't even get a chance to tank.I got about 21.5k HP and about the same Armour...i tried dpsing but then people complain why my dps is so low and why don't you know how to play my warrior...or why are you wearing tanking gear dpsing...my response usually is....(I never wield a 2handed weapon since i got rid of my axe at level 2 and since then i've been a tank." and usually get kicked from the group that way.and my server either i'm not looking hard enough or Thorium brotherhood alliance side has no good guilds out there.

Sean, are you defense capped? Undergeared tanks are a challenge to healers, but some people that are well geared like the challenge. And most are lazy and don't know how to actually keep up a undergeared tank. But I love undergeared tanks on my druids. But yeah, not defense capped is bad. The good news as a tank is that if you get vote kicked, then it's just a matter of seconds to find another group. I know it's hard starting out, my DK was there at 20k health/20k armor, but he was defense capped at least.
