You can level via the LFD as Prot, that much is obvious. Solo questing as Prot? Not so much. I started out in Vashjir as prot, the way I levelled throughout WLK. However, since block value and damage shield disappeared, this wasn't the way to go. Things took forever to die, since Vengeance wasn't stacking at all - there were very few opportunities to aoe tank in Vashjir. This was a shame, as I'd gone all the way to 80 as prot in WLK, aoe grinding was very possible, I could solo group quests, and had no downtime whatsoever.When I hit Deepholm I specced arms and found it incredibly nice, especially with Victory Rush meaning I had very little downtime. Things died *fast*, even in the DPS plate quest greens I was using (I was prot/prot throughout WLK)So: Prot for 5 mans (duh) and Arms for questing (though Fury works if you can get x2 Obsidium Executioners early on - you wont find many options for SMF, believe me)

I leveled my warrior as prot by questing through Cata and had no more trouble than I did with my druid (feral) or my hunter (MM).
