One question, what is your view on leveling up 1-60 as protection?

As a protection spec'd warrior, i think leveling from 1-60 is easier than many people give it credit for.

Very few warriors start as protection right off the bat. At around level 20-25 is where the transition takes place, where there are higher end instances to be worked through.

One thing that defenitely works in our favor is our ability to tag and kill multiple mobs at a time. This comes in handy especially in highly populated zones (like Silithus when it first opened). We may not have the kind of dps that fury or arms warriors possess, but with the right kind of gear (stamina based), we can outlast multiple mobs at a time.

It is far easier I think for a protection warrior to find a group for instances as he/she is leveling up. The 5 man instances are far easier when there is a capable tank in the group. It certainly is possible to just bash through instances like SM or Maurudon with pure dps, but in my expirience its far easier to get through the instance with a prot. warrior. Instances are where protection warriors gain most of their expirience, since grinding takes longer than it would dps spec'd.

Leveling from 1-60 as protection takes a bit longer, but it provides the bonus of running more instances, and thus there is a better chance to obtain gear as you level.

also, rend everything. If it moves, rend it. Can you imagine having 8 rends on something? it would die wicked fast. (yeah, I said wicked)
