Optimal for Tanking, can 2nd as a DPS. For PvP I believe warriors are one of the weaker classes though, if you want to PvP I would suggest having your 2nd skill set as Fury

I think General Thoughts is an excellent name for a warrior.

Manly as hell class. They take the least amount of damage, but have the least health/self-heals. Great group utility (can increase everyone's damage, defense, and health with separate cooldowns) and awesome mobility, but they can't do anything omgwtfhax (like Pally bubble, Army of the Dead, etc).

You're really reliant on the healers though in raids, which is why I didn't stick with mine. My healers tended to leave me low for far too long, and then I'd just fall the **** over and people would ask how I died. I moved to DK because I'm a loner like that, but if you're raiding mostly with competent people then it's a grand class. With Second Wind and Victory Rush you'll be unkillable while leveling though.

Prot's dps has been a bit low lately, but a few days ago they got a HEFTY buff. I daresay you'll wreck absolute face in low level dungeons now.

(you need a beard though, it's very important)
