How does a Warrior stand against a Paladin, and how can I survive more?
My guild heavily favors Paladin tanks, and it may be because the MT before I came along was an amazing Paladin tank. My guild goes around saying that Paladin tanks, because of the near constant uptime of Holy Shield are unhittable, which makes sense. I know my current fellow Paladin tank can keep his up indefinitely.
I can do that only with my Shield Block, and even with my T9 Four-pieces bonus, there's a 20-second downtime that my avoidance doesn't sky-rocket.
I know that Blizzard intended for each of the four tanks to be able to perform each role in this game, but do Paladins really have their avoidance to credit this spot above Warrior tanks? What's the consensus of Tankspot for this?
I also want to be able to survive more than I've been able to, and I'm going to respec and reglyph to fit in that nice two-minute Shield Wall. It just seems more and more difficult to know when to pop my vast array of trinket and ability cooldowns.
Wasn't sure whether to put this post in advice, or mechanics. I'm talking a bit about both here, so.
