When I switched to Prot as I was leveling my Warrior Alt through Northrend (some time in T11ish), what I found helpful was to roll a new warrior from scratch and level as a tank through the dungeon finder. By the time I got to about 25 or so, it'd given me some context to work with so that when Igot back on my level 74 Warrior, I could make more sense of all the abilities in the Prot section of my spellbook. I find the biggest challenge when picking up a spec for the first time (particularly at high level) is sifting through all the crap in your spellbook and deciding what needs to be on your bars and what doesn't, where to put it and how to use them all. Going "back to basics" provided a low pressure environment to start from scratch with the bread and butter tools of tanking. Charge, Rend, Thunderclap and Shield slam.

I did the same, only I hadn't tanked in 12 - 18 months leading up to Cata. I couldn't stop at 25 though :( I took that second Warrior to 85, It was too much fun!
