I recommend using QWE for movement but that's just me. I wouldn't have HP pot on 2, have charge or something else on 2.
I decided to throw all my abilities on key binds. I know it isn't supposed to be an easy change over, but I feel really awkward about my bind set up, mostly the Z -> B key binds. Could anyone offer advice on better placement, it would be much appreciated ?
Here is my setup atm..Shift modifier keys are the bottom one:
I use a Belking n52te gamepad, all of my movement is on my thumb which allows every ability I have to be keybound. I would recommend it.

Thanks for the advice I guess I'm just badly uncoordinated ^.^
wow, i guess I'm too complex i use the default binds with Ctrl alternates on the number row and use the numberpad for shouts and defensive cooldowns
I remain the only warrior in all of Azeroth that can cast fireball
This is my setup, it's pretty radically different from that one, but I really like it:
1 - devastate
2 - HS
3 - Revenge
4 - Shield Slam
5 - Shield Block
6 - Conc Blow
7 - Zerker rage
Shift 1 - charge
Shift 2 - commanding
Shift 3 - demo show
Shift 4 - Blood Rage
Shift 5 - Int Shout
Shift 6 - Challenging Shout
Shift 7 - ... actually I can't remember what I have bound here, I guess I don't use it much
q - trinket 1
shift q - trinket 2, or if I don't have a second trinket with an on use effect equipped I will bind this to WotF
e - shockwave
shift e - heroic throw
f - thunder clap
shift f - macro with charge and heroic throw bound to the same thing
g - focus
r - taunt
z - commanding shout
v - spell reflect
` - vigilance
cntrl v - equip weapon, sometimes for arms this is my 2hr for when I use my spell reflect macro, sometimes this is bound to items such as the rocket pack on gunship
F1 - Last Stand (I click shield wall to insure I never accidentally fat finger it)
Caps Lock - taunt focus target macro
M4 - "oh shit button" - has pots, healthstones, enraged regen, etc. etc. bound to it
Shift M4 - just enraged regen
M5 - shield bash/pummel macro
Oldschool gaming advice - put movement keys to ESDF. You suddenly get 3 more keys to bind with zero loss of convenience.
Second thing - put HS and Cleave on mousewheel.
edit: HS and Cleave on scroll works well :P
i now use binds -
Q - Shield Slam
E - Revenge
F - Devastate
R - Thunderclap
Shift R - Shockwave
T - Taunt
S+T - Mocking Blow
Z/S+Z - Commanding/Battle shout
3/S+3 - last stand/ Trinket
1 - Bloodrage
2 - Berzerker rage
4 - ER
and for movement - wasd
I still feel uncoordinated hehe but thanks for the help !

It just takes a little time to get used to it. Don't give up. Once you've used your binds enough that they become reflexive, you'll find your play improves significantly.
For my Tank Spec my Kb's are like this:
1-Revenge macro(Cast revenge and Heroic strike)
Then My scroll wheel goes like this
Down: Spell Reflect
Click: Auto Run
My keybinds seem very simple compared to other peoples here but I've gotten so used to them I'm not sure i could change
