Advantages of WoW Leveling As a Tank
A tank talent build will open new WoW leveling possibilities. If you’re planning to roll a new character that can serve as a tank, you should choose that spec. Even if you won’t play as World of Warcraft tank from the beginning, as soon as you become eligible for dual talent specialization, visit your trainer, train this ability, then choose tanking as your second spec.
So, how can a tank talent build would enhance your WoW leveling process?
First of all, you will be assigned to a group almost instantly, every time you sign up into the Dungeon Finder. Also, especially when you join an instance for the first time, you will benefit from a series of quests given by the quest givers at the entrance of the dungeon, quests which are usually done along that particular instance. With you as a very alive and kicking tank, leading the group, those quests and the instance as well, will be finished as quickly as possible, which will increase your XP rate.
Tanks have been given even more love from Blizzard since with Cataclysm, tank-oriented Heirlooms were introduced, like the Burnished Helm of Might or Ripped Sandstorm Cloak. Of course, you will be needing some reputation with your guild on one of your characters to be able to purchase those items from the guild vendor, but once you have them.
Even if you decide to level up in battlegrounds, you can still have a pretty much decent WoW leveling as a tank. With some PvP gear like the Brutal set, or a few PvP heirlooms, tanks are pretty hard to kill. By guarding a base or an objective, you can be a lot of help to any PvP group, increasing the winning chances of your team by a lot.
Now, if you add the optimized path of a WoW leveling guide on top of your tanking spec, you will be able to level up very quickly, and reach 85 in the shortest time possible.
