Warrior about to hit 80, need advice on what to do next
I'm about to hit 80 (this weekend) and I'm wondering what my next progression will be. I'm currently furry spec'd for leveling but I already have the money for dual spec so I'm going to go with the standard protection spec and pic up the beginning tanking items that I've seen in several posts on the forum. My question is what to do after that to start acquiring items. My tentative plan is to run a bunch of random dungeons to get used to tanking (random dungeons until I have around 3 times in each is what I've read) but then I don't know what to do. I'm also changing my professions from herbalism/skinning to mining/blacksmithing and eventually blacksmithing/jewelcrafting for the additional gem slots and improved gems.
Edit: A link to my wowarmory profile, though it will change a lot when I pick up the noob tanking items and re-spec
