So the question is, arms vs prot for leveling now in patch 4. And if possible specs for either. pros and cons? hell if for example prot is better for soloing tough and arms is better for clearing trash I may just dual spec early and grab both. So yeah which one is better and for what? Also which stance for both? I'm starting at level 61 (pl'd through refer a friend) and is going to be my 4th 80. So level 61 for the talent and stances available

ah, so now I know why I run into so many bad tanks/players on classes and wonder how the hell they made it that far up in levels and not know wtf to do. RAF...

I can't help on the Arms, but I can say if you plan on being a tank Prot is the tanking tree. I leveled my entire way from 1-80 as prot and did 95% of it in BGs and RDF. My Qs were pretty much instant, and if I liked the group (RDF) I would run more with them.
BGing as prot was fun too (of course this is all before 4.0.1 hit) as I was (ore felt like) a brick wall.
The stance for prot is the Defender one. Grab a good shield, use a BoA Weapon (I liked the Mace over the sword), and armor and go have fun (tanking on Warrior is imo pretty easy, all I can describe it as is AEing to have aggro on everything...and then watching to see if targets change targets to a group member).
