One thing I have come to realize since leveling a new Warrior. I can once again be a terribad nubcake. I did not level prot on Darraxus. He was my first toon. I pretty much leveled in Noob spec. That would be a strange spattering of Arms and Fury with no rhyme or reason. Because of that (and the fact that I heroic striked my way to 60) I did not actually know what levels I got cool tanking shit.
Little did I know (\facepalm) That I had sunder for a few levels when I went into my lowbie instance to tank. I also forgot that you get Defensive Stance from a quest. I really can't believe I forgot Sunder. Perhaps it is because it really hasnt been used since BC came out with Devastate. I should remember.....remember my days back in Strat Dead when the "3 Sunder Rule" was in effect. Basically, DPS waits for three Sunders or dies a horrible death.
With raf and my sister running me through shit, I have been progressing very very quickly. I am sitting at level 30 at the moment and have been gaining roughly 10 levels a day. Once I hit 60, it will be the ole instance grind up to 80. I like instances, and this is now more viable than ever since you dont have to do any of the grunt work to get into a dungeon.
