If your prot warrior has been that much of party DPS, two things are probably happening:A - you are in a group with poor DPS. Either they are poorly geared or don't understand their class mechanics yet.B - you are tanking. Prot warriors (especially well geared ones) at certain levels can put out a lot of damage when they have the much less restricted rage that comes from being the focus of enemy attacks.Now, if you were NOT tanking, your DPS would be poor. And if you were a well geared DPS warrior, your DPS would be better when not tanking. I've leveled a new alt to 67 almost entirely via dungeons, I have yet to have a tank beat me on DPS who wasn't four levels higher than me or geared to the teeth in heirlooms and the best blues or epics available. (That one tank was a level 68 paladin when I was level 64, and he still barely outDPS'd me.)
