So is protection(warrior) ALWAYS the ideal soloing spec?

my warrior alt is 77, and protection far and away does superior damage when soloing, not to mention higher survivability. does this stay consistent all the way till 90? i was juggling between arms and fury to see what i liked better for a while, decided i preferred fury, so i decided to try out prot and wow.

i mean, i know prot is the spec to use for soloing old content, but that's a given.

Well all tank specs are ideal for soloing just because of the survivability and ability to pull half the zone at once. But prot warriors really do damn good dps compared to some of their counterparts. Its odd.

Overal ideal? Hmmm...Blood DKs I think prolly have a bit more self heals.

But otherwise, with 2nd wind and SHield Barrier, its difficult to near impossible for many older bosses to kill a prot warr, even when enraged.

I think ideal soloing warrior spec is what was meant.

Nah it doesn't hold until 90. Nearly the opposite, without vengeance then Prot is juan of the weakest specs in the game, so much so that they're getting a massive buff to their base damage in 5.2. And since any damage you can self-heal through is too low to provide substantial vengeance, you're frequently better off with one of the dps specs if you want to get things done with any kind of speed.

^This..As far as strictly warrior soloing goes more times than not i kill bosses as fury. There are a handful of fights where i prefer prot because the mob will have a big spikey damaging thing he does or something that could possibly kill fury through second wind but most times fury is the go to solo spec because your going to have to beat enrage timers or certain mechanics.

You know. This is nothing against arms, but I cant play it. I readt have a dk thst uses one two hand weapon, I need something unique so the dual wielding of fury is most fun to me. Ill personally keep prot as my off spec for soloing raids snd such.

it will hold up to around level 80ish.

once you get into the cataclysm zones. the prot specs just dont hold up well for leveling besides doing dungeon ques. this however is attributed to the mobs having a ludicrous amount more health then wrath and below.

I got 3 bad touches before I got my first good touch. I haven't gotten a single bad touch since and I spent 2 hours trying for one tonight.
