So, I'm new to this whole "tank" and "warrior" mumbo jumbo.

What's the best spec for warriors to tank in?

And, someone mind running over the whole...tanking system for me? Or at least giving me some helpful tips?

Noob warrior tanks FTL. Please help! :D

Tank in protection talents, and defensive stance.

some ideas about builds: http://www.wowwiki.com/Warrior_builds#Protection

Are you leveling as a tank? Jumping into tanking at 80 in heroics?

Don't really know what you mean by "mumbo jumbo." You might want to be more specific. anyone in here could write books on tanking. If you're interested in tanking start with the "Tankspot's Prot Warrior Guide" in the guide section of the website. After watching that come back with some more specific questions and then it will be easier than just explaining absoutely everything.

I'm leveling as a tank. Figured it'd be better to do than just level then jump to tank. I'd like to get my barrings and get familiar with the class and responsibilities.

And I'll check out that prot guide. Once I get a bit more educated, I'll come back with better questions. :D

Click the "Guides" link tab at the top of the page, there's TONS of info there.

If you need a quick start, get to the Gear and Enchanting Forum and click on the sticky "Agg's Prot Warr Guide". Most of that will get you in the right direction.
