    Who has more health?

    Simple question, do warriors have more base stam/health then paladins?

    uhm... what do you mean with Base Stamina? Like the amount of HP you recieve when starting your toon at level 1, because that's determined by race, not class.

    After that it's down to gear, so there's not really a comparison. As far as I'm aware Paladins do get a bigger Stamina multiplier than Warriors from talents.

    With the stamina talents, warriors are actually at the bottom of the HP pool with the new T8 sets.

    Followed by paladins, then DK then Druid

    Obviously gems and enchants could change this.
    Only a warrior chooses pacifism; others are condemned to it.

    This information is actually mostly incorrect.

    Base health is the amount of health you get for being a particular class (warrior, paladin, etc.). Your race determines how much stamina you have without gear/talents, or naked stamina. Naked health is the combination of your Base Health (from class) and the health from your Naked STA (from race), but minus 180 health (part of Blizzard's equation).

    Your health is determined (before gear and talent modifiers) like thus:

    Naked_HP = Base_HP + (10*Naked_STA) - 180;

    So the comparison goes like this typically:
    Paladins - Higher scaling on Stamina
    Warriors - Higher Base Health, Higher Naked Stamina, and 1 extra slot to put STA in (gun).

    Scaling-wise, a paladin will eventually outpace a warrior, but that totally depends on how people gear. Warriors start higher at first and offset some of the scaling differences with the gun slot. In general though, the HPs of both classes will be pretty close.

    Jere, true assuming level 80, but that's nowhere in the OPs post. Thanks for addition though, it gives a much clearer picture than my comment.

    No, that should be true for any level.
