Leveling in Cata is beyond simple; I find myself outleveling zones before completing all the quests without heirlooms, gathering, or even rest. You practically have to lock XP if you want to see the content at-level. That said, I've been leveling a new warrior solely through LFD, and it is phenominally fast; I pick up 4 levels an evening, easy. Tanking isn't that bad; Blood and Thunder alone was enough to hold aggro until nearly 45 by itself. The biggest problem was trigger-happy dps, and between the lowbie buffs and the dungeon nerfs, even that caused shockingly few wipes. Dungeon quests, drops, and Random Dungeon rewards generally keep you in gear. I tanked Scholo and Strat live with the mail quest chestplate from Scarlet, even though it's caster gear.If you want to learn crisis tanking, level quickly, and have a high tolerance for dumb, LFD is definitely the way to go.
