For some reason I seem to hit more tanking?
Prot also gets a lot of its major rotation/threat abilities early; Ret's damage is built aroudn a self buff (Inquisition) that they don't get until 81.

Just last night I was in a LFR for Heart of Fear(Tanking), and during the trash pulls before Garalon, I pulled 2 packs of mobs at once, and my DPS peaked at about 178,000 during the fight, and dropped down to about 140,000 DPS by the end of the pull. I topped those charts by a huge margin over the DPS who was in second place on that pull.
Most tanking abilities were changed when MOP came out, and abilities that used to have threat modifiers to increase threat generation, had those removed. Now in MOP tanks get their threat by doing high amounts of damage, instead of low damage with high threat modifiers. So now, Damage IS Threat, whereas before that was not the case when each ability had a threat modifier that increased how much threat was generated but was not really tied to how much damage the tank did, but rather whether the ability hit or not.
