I have a 70 horde warrior and a 30-something alliance warrior, plus numerous previous attempts at warrior alts and I still hate the rage mechanic. (My druids are either kitty or resto only)

tauren warrior was my first character... still one of my favorite classes to playwith that heal on victory rush makes them so much better

Depending on when you last tried warrior, you should give it another chance. The new talent system helps the class a lot early on as well as key soloing abilities like Victory Rush becoming available sooner.

Yup definitely try rolling a worgen warrior. I was in the same situation and my main bank alt is still a level 5 warrior but I made an alt of every other class in the game and got bored. I didn't have a worsen yet and a savage beast pummeling faces in with two two-handed weapons just seemed so right. The sprint comes in handy, the arms playstyle while leveling is pretty fun(no way I'm letting my worsen use two puny one-handers) and prot does insane aoe when gathering up mobs. I made it to 60 in just three days and it was a blast

My biggest difficulty is with Prot warriors, feral(bear) druids are not that difficult to manage rage and aggro, however once I try the same instances(druid and warr are near the same lvl) on my warrior, I fail utterly. Something about having to manage both weapon AND shield attacks leave me with hold only 1 mob, or no mobs, its really frustrating. With every other class/spec I can get the hang of it fairly quickly, or if it is a bit difficult, I will eventually find a way to make it work, but ive had my warrior for over a year now, and still cant figure out his prot spec.

You guys are crazy. Not really, but I can't relate--warriors are my face class.@Tor: It's not so much shield vs. sword but single vs. AoE leveling, priority will be Rend debuff > TC > Cleave > S. Slam.Me, I can't stand to play most DPS classes. Not as fun as tanking, and the queue times suck.

I just made a warrior and have gone to late 40s without even blinking. Amazing. It's the only class that's ever clicked with me as much as my main (priest) and I have no idea why it took me so long!What can't I play? Rogue, warlock, shaman.

While my tauren warrior has seen a lot of down-points with me playing, and is currently the ONLY class I haven't gotten to 60, I actually don't mind the class. I originally created him while my main server was down and, since my server was back up by the time I reaches level 6, he wound up abandoned (though not deleted) on that other server. He sat there for YEARS before I casually mentioned his existence to one of my closer friends. She suddenly decided it would be great fun to make a horde-side alt there, since I already had a toon there. Next thing I know, several of my friends had made horde alts there and we formed a guild. We had fun questing together and running dungeons as a guild. =) It has been pretty quiet since Cataclysm, but that's to be expected. The only reason I HAVEN'T continued leveling him is because that would defeat the fun of leveling with my friends. He'll be ready and waiting for me when we return for more alt-tastic fun. =)

I was stuck on my warrior at around lvl 29 and getting my @ss kicked anytime I took on 2 mobs. I tried all 3 specs and got about the same result (I very possibly suck at being a warrior). However, when the shattering happened I gave him another try and with the buff to Victory rush and mortal strike I suddenly became supreme over multiple mobs. During the holiday event I would happily ride into packs of scourge and take their lovely charms. He is now doing the same in outland. Point being, things change from patch to patch. It never hurts to go back to a class and try it out again. You never know when some fix here or there will make it click for you and you can enjoy them when you previously have not :)
