Well, you don't have much abilities until you hot 40 and get the Shield Slam.
So just play in Def Stance because you will get 10% less damage. Do do damage use Rend, Thunderclap and thats basically all ^^, oh and keep the Battle Shout active. If you got the killing blow change to Battle Stance charge the next enemy and use Victory Rush before switching to Def Stance.
In addition you can use Demoralizing Shout to take even less damage and apply Sunder Armor to increase the physical you do but because you level together with a warlock the fight might be over to soon to really take advantage.
At level 12 you get Overpower this ability is only usable in Battle Stance but after your enemy dodged an attack you get a very powerful and cheap attack that requires stance switching.
At level 14 you get revenge which shares the cool down with Overpower and is only usable if you block, parry or dodge an attack. Revenge works well with Shield Block and its available with level 16 and increases your chance to block by 100% which means you can use Revenge after you activated Shield Block
So after that you get a lot of situational skills that I don't want to explain here because learning how they work is part of the fun.
Talents form the Def-Tree:
At level 30 you get Concussion Blow which stuns the enemy and deals a good amount of damage and even more threat.
At level 40 you get Vigilance. You put this skill on the party member which produces the most threat and you get Shield Slam from a warrior trainer.
At level 50 you get Devastate which replaces Sunder Armor from now on
At level 60 you get Shockwave which stuns all enemies in a frontal cone and deals damage.
When you reach level 60 you have all the tools for the Def Warrior priority list that is mentioned in the guides.
To build threat before Level 30 you use:
Shield Bash (not sure about this but if my mind serves me correctly it also generates threat)
After that you can fiddle in Shield Slam and the talents from the Def-Tree.
Debuff the enemies with Thunderclap, Demoralizing Shout and buff yourself with Battle Shout or Commanding Shout (at level 68).
If you have over 50 Rage you can use Heroic Strike (one target) or Cleave (two or more targets) to overwrite your auto attack with a special but be careful and stop spaming Heroic Strike and Cleave if you have few rage because you will not generate new rage by yourself. I' sure there are useful posts on this board that deal with the next swing attacks.
Nice tools which can come in handy are:
Taunt (works like the Taunt of the Paladin but dosen't do damage)
Challenging Shout (AoE "Taunt" that doesn't put you on the same threat level like Taunt)
Mocking Blow (does damage and forces the target to attack you for 6 seconds)
Intimidating Shout (AoE fear)
Shield Wall, Recklessness and Retaliation (the last two require Battle- and Berserker-Stance)
Hamstring (slows the enemy but requires Battle- or Berserker-Stance)
Enrage Regeneration (regenerates 30% of your health over 10 seconds)
Basically all warrior abilities are useful and I don't want to talk about all of them :P .
I don't know if there is any specialized way to skill. Personally I would get Shockwave as soon as possible.
You can use the the Thunderclap, Bloodrage and Battle Shout Glyphs for the minor ones. The Glyph of Charge can also be useful but i prefer Bloodrage for leveling but Charge is really good, especially when you spec'd Warbringer. The Glyph of Command is useful when you have access to Commanding Shout but again for leveling I prefer the Glyph of Battle (-Shout).
As Major Glyphs I would use Heroic Strike to begin with. Later on you can change it and add Glyph of Devastate, Sunder Armor and Taunt if you tank a lot of Dungeons.
Again Glyph explanations and discussions can be found all over this board.
Gee thats a wall of text. Hope it helps and that all the info is correct.
