Which TBC tank is better in current build?

#1 » Post by flik9999 » 27 Aug 2017 03:11

Now how do the tanks look like at 70 im between paladin and warrior. In tbc warrior was the far better main tank and paladin was a good off tank (Warrior had to tab target to hold more than 1 enemy effectivly).

In wrath something changed when DKS entered the scene and warriors became less useful as tanks and more of a dps class as well as paladin getting some serios buffs that made it viable as a main tank.

As we are essentially playing level 70 wrath how are the tanks balanced. Is war a viable class or are paladins the go to tank like a level 80 tank?

All tanks are viable, but as of right now Warriors are objectively better than Paladins. Both take about the same amount of damage and warriors push out much more threat. Unless you plan on just 5 and 10 man content and prefer a Paladin, I would suggest the Warrior. Upside: Revenge makes leveling as prot very easy.

DPSers AE damage now outpaces all the tanks' AE threat. So...Warriors are fine on AE tanking as long as DPSers don't expect them to hold aggro permanently on a full AE burn, but none of the tanks really can.
