Newbie tank, experienced player
So I have been lurking on these forums for a while and I'll be damaged if I can't find some advice. I am an experienced WoW player (6/12 ICC as an Arcane Mage). Currently running cata heroics on my mage so I know the basics of the game.
The guild I started is not doing as well on recruiting as I had hoped so I am switching over to play a tank. Currently I have a level 21 Draenai Protection Warrior. I've tanked my way though Ragefire Chasm and Deadmines. For the most part the runs were successful but some problems I am having are knowing when someone else in my group has aggro, peeling mobs off of other people, and sometimes tab targeting does not work for me.
My rotation is basically Thunder Clap, tab through all mobs and Sunder Armor to 3x on each mob, then keep Thunder Clap on cool down. If there is a caster in the group then I keep the caster targeted and use my Shield Bash to interrupt spell casting.
My questions are:
1. How should I setup my interface to easily see who has aggro on what mobs?
2. What macros should I look at to make pulling mobs off other people easier?
3. Who are some of the top prot warriors here so I can view their Armory profiles to see what stats and gear I should be looking for?
4. Also are there any guides in the forum that I may have missed for prot warriors?
I know that as I level things will change but I would like to get my interface setup at level 21 as if I was main tanking raids. This way I can get used to it and when I hit end game there won't be as steep of a learning curve... hopefully.
Thanks in advance!
