New Prot Warrior Level 30 Needs Advice ;-)
(*please read the below with tanking in mind - not overly concerned with levelling - I'm finding the prot warrior a damn sight easier than my level 30 Holy priest lol)
Having never played a melee class before, let alone a tank, I've done a fair bit of reading on this fine forum and on EJ and others to try and get clued-up, but struggling to find info on prot warrior / tanking at level 30. So any advice is welcome.
My main question at the moment is:
1 - Specifically for tanking as a Prot Warrior, is a faster sword better than a sword with more dmg? You can see my sword here - The World of Warcraft Armory
I just chose the fastest sword I had as I went along at the moment, but was wondering if I should get the BoA sword for level 1-80. Looks like a nice stat on it, but it's a lot slower.
I'm glyphed for Revenge/Sunder/Bloodrage, so will a faster sword allow me to get off more Revenge + free Heroic Strikes?
2 - Rotation. Any advice or criticism you guys have on what I'm doing here? I'm basically using :
Defensive Stance - Taunt/Shield Block, Revenge/HS, Sunders and Mocking Blow when needed at the moment. I'm working Thunderclap and Demo Shout in there as well with mobs. Tried a Challenging Shout>Battle Stance / Retalliation once or twice on 5/6 mobs which was fun, though a long C/D - any other tips on how to maintain aggro?
Although that seems to going okay, I was wondering if it was worth chucking in an early Rend for more damage, or Disarm maybe....damage on me doesn't really seem to be a problem though, so not sure whether Disarm is useful most of the time..
Thanks in advance guys.
