So, I've seen there are hardly any warriors in our guild, and wanted to try and fill this gap. I've been playing around with some warrior builds, and I'll post them here as I sort out the fine points.

Here is my tanking build. Basically, I tried to generate as much threat as possible, so aggro is allways on me. So far, it's working. I've had others start a pull before me (not my call) and I have no issues pulling aggro right off them.

So basically, Paladin gives you some ranged strikes, lots of armor buffs and block increase, which dramatically reduces the damage you take.

Reaver gives you more damage reduction and AoE DoT abilities which all will generate threat. It's important to have these going to keep threat on you. They also spread to other enemies, so its pretty easy to grab aggro no matter what is going on.

Warlord gives you bonuses in armor, block, and aggro. It also gives you a cool ability to pull someont to you, which is nice when there are several casters in a pull that are too far apart for aoe.

I am working on macro's for this build, I'm having some issues with all strikes not being cast. I will post those soon.

So, here are the macro's that I am using. there are a few, but each puts up a buff/debuff or AoE or a pull.

Tank 1
suppressmacrofailures
cast retaliation
cast aggressive block
cast disarming counterblow
cast pacifying strike

Tank 2
suppressmacrofailures
cast retaliation
cast agressive block
cast disarming counterblow
cast leader's mark

Tank 3
suppressmacrofailures
cast retaliation
cast agressive block
cast disarming counterblow
cast empowering strike

These I bind to keys 1-3. each puts up a different buff, while letting you use counter block whenever it pops up. I ust spam away with these on single targets.

Reaver DoT's
cast plague bringer
cast grim lure
cast soul sickness
cast blood fever
cast necrotic wounds

This is my 4 key, which I pull with. Plague Bringer makes all the rest of these strikes hit 5 targets. Grim Lure forces the target to attack you for 3 seconds. Soul Sickness heals you. The others are just DoT's

Tank Ranged
suppressmacrofailures
cast light's decree
cast shield throw
cast light's hammer
cast nectotic wounds

Shift1 is my Shield Charge, to fly into a group. It generates threat, but sometimes a groupie who is quick on the draw will pull it off you. Better put up Plague Bringer first, so you can cast your Reaver DoT's ASAP.

This is my Shift2 key. These all have a 20 meter range, so you can pull aggro to you. Light's Decree should be first, because it causes attacks to hit 5 enemies instead of 1. Makes all strikes an AoE for 12 seconds.

Now for AoE attacks.

suppressmacrofailures
cast concussion
cast retaliation
cast disarming counterblow
cast paladin's reprisal
cast light's decree
cast sweeping strike
cast vicious cleave
cast judgement

This is my Shift3 key. Two of these are AoE taunts, and 2 are "hits * number of attackers."

The reason I put the same strike in so many of different macro's, is because the randomly pop up when you block, which is a chance happening in itself. You never know when you will get it. I am always spamming whichever attack I need to at the time, to you will get a 1-2 hit when they pop up. As a tank, you could pretty much run the entire instance whithout slowing down, as long as your healer can keep up. Otherwise, I put Light's Hammer on another button to stun when I need it. The only thing this build really is missing is a interrupt, but the stun sometimes works for that.
