I've got a prot warrior, been prot since level 1, ground out during the Dark Days of Prot, pre-Wrath. It was a bitch when I did stuff alone, but the character was made to play with a mage buddy, so it was okay. Isle of QD was a royal pain though, took me so long to kill stuff sometimes, the last guy would respawn...So, new prot rocks, it's fun, it's pretty, it does everything, but I went dual spec and grabbed Arms anyway, which is also fun, most times. (I can't say why I don't like fury, oh well)I got Ahunes little scythe, it's worthless, but I kept it anyway, just to bladestorm around Dal with it!Oh, right, the point. I like arms, it feels fun, but sometimes proc's just don't proc. My balance druid feels less random than my arms warrior. I only hope there's more to do with Arms in the future. Rather than just hitting buttons that light up in order...(I don't raid as Arms, so it's not an issue, but still.)

Rend is a 100% proc for overpower. The only other proc that I see is Sudden Death (which yes, is a pretty low chance at 9%).So like... either you're doing something wrong with rend, or you're putting too much stock in Sudden Death (which is a far lower percentage than Eclipse procs for balance druids).

You play a Prot Warrior but you don't like hitting buttons that light up in order? What do you call Sword & Board and Revenge procs, then? :P

@ vocenoctumThe Dark Days of Prot were pre-BC. Back when you didn't have Devastate and your abilities hit like wet noodles but it was okay because they all had hefty threat modifiers, but you couldn't solo something 10 levels lower than you without a healer and 90% of your talents were either threat bonuses or damage mitigation. Oh, and the constant tells asking you to tank some dungeon because Warriors were the ONLY tank class. THOSE were the dark days. BC era Warrior tanks had it easy in comparison, and Wrath era Warrior tanks can actually solo anything that isn't a current Dungeon or Raid.Also, saying you don't like to hit buttons as they light up in order is just silly, especially as Prot. You have both Sword & Board and Revenge that light up like clockwork, you have multiple CDs you can hit as they come up, and TC every 6 seconds. It's EXACTLY like Arms' play style, only you have more CDs to pop and you're less likely to die (because healers actually heal you) and you never run out of rage, ever.
