And your point is...?

That spec can tank just fine, but a protecion spec warrior will have an easier time handling several mobs or tough bosses.

To each his own, m'kay?

Don't need high prot to tank in MC etc. You do need to be using a shield tho. ;)

That's what I'm saying, it's just that with some talents in protection you'll be a bit better off due to higher Block chance and such.
But tanking in MC is different then tanking in Instances like Stratholme.

Going for the following spec for now, might tweak it as time passes.
It's quite effective in 5 man instance groups, sure my damage is pants compared to Arms or Fury spec but thats where Casters and Rogues comes in

Protection 30 Pts
Shield Specialization 5/5
Anticipation 4/5
Improved Bloodrage 2/2
Toughness 5/5
Last Stand 1/1
Improved Revenge 3/3
Defiance 4/5
Concussion Blow 1/1
One-Handed Weapon Specialization 5/5

Arms 21 Pts
Deflection 5/5
Improved Rend 3/3
Tactical Mastery 5/5
Improved Overpower 2/2
Deep Wounds 3/3
Impale 2/2
Sweeping Strikes 1/1

its not really about you having an easier time, if you're gonna tank mc, you should be good, instead of "omg talents will help meeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!"

its about gear, gear and buffs and 8000 hps.

then its hi priests

If you're aiming for any high end pve (strat isnt high end x<~) then you'll be wanting to get rid of Deep Wounds, mobs only have 8 debuff slots and if all warrs have DW that means any other debuff is off in like 2s flat ;<

Sure Arms/Fury is better in pvp, but untill BG's come out there is little use in doing pvp as Alliance zergs everything anyway.

Got an unused Kang the Decapitator though, thats making me regret that I don't use 2h but that's life :)
I play on PvP server though, I NEED a decent PvP spec just to level up, am 54 at the moment and can pretty much hold my own. The damage I put out with 31 Arms/13 Fury an a nice slow 2H Axe is sick sometimes.
