He is ctc capped. And he's really difficult to heal. Not impossible, but healing our DK tank is much much easier. With only the one CD it makes it tough in tight situations.

My healers have no issues with me, any my threat/dtps is far more than fine. Our cooldowns are also the opposite of long, although I can't disagree with the overall shortage of them.

What are you specifically having issues with? Generic QQ isn't going to get you any help.

Crit block is awesome, Ctc capped warriors are epic.

Impale, Void Bolt, and Focused Assault say hi.

The weakness of prot warriors this tier has a lot more to do with the terrible design of DS than with the class itself.

Impale is hardly a difficult mechanic to mitigate, especially with Shield Wall at 2 min.

It hits for 1.2 million on heroic. The issue isn't Shield Wall, it's that Shield Block doesn't mitigate it, unlike Barkskin/Bone Shield/Divine Protection.

EDIT: That being said... which encounter(s) are you having trouble with, OP? It's likely that we can offer advice on cooldown rotations to help you survive better. The only fight where warriors are completely screwed is Yor'sajh 25-man heroic, honestly. On the rest of the "anti-warrior" fights, it's just a moderate disadvantage.

Sorry, I missed the part where OP is on heroic Madness.

... ah.. wait.

Neither am I. That doesn't mean it's not a design problem that Blizzard decided to implement terrible fight mechanics this tier.

EDIT: Derail it? He was never asking for specific advice for his situation, but rather discussing a common complaint of warriors in Dragon Soul.

Remember, bosses in Cata won't burst hard enough for EH to be a meaningful consideration in tank selection. It'll take the boss 6-8 swings to kill you from full health, and the healers will really need to push themselves in order to top you off.

I have 1 mitigation CD, whilst other tanks have at least 3. I see a problem.

Shield block is a mitigation cooldown (granted, it doesn't work on some mechanics, but it works on anything magical/blockable) and druids also only have 2 mit cooldowns. Again, generic QQ doesn't help anyone.

Wait.

What's the third mitigation cooldown that I'm missing? Or a DK for that matter (since IBF and Bone Shield are the two).
