So the question is, arms vs prot for leveling now in patch 4. And if possible specs for either. pros and cons? **** 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 **** 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).
