    Warrior Vs. Pala Tanking

    I have a level 80 warrior tank who is quite good geared 5k gearscore etc. but recently got my paladin to level 40 and starting tanking on him im wondering whether to reroll paladin completely on stick with warrior
    just looking for pros and cons of both of these classes/specs.
    any extra info would be thanked very much!

    Pro of each class:

    Warrior- mobility, stuns, silences
    Paladin- everything else

    Both are viable in all of the present content, but it would be hard to argue the paladin doesn't have an edge on just about every encounter right now (save anub add tanking). I say this as an unbiased DK tank who has both prot warrior and prot paladin alts geared from heroics/badges.

    To add to this, if you're a good player, you'll do fine in either class. If you're incredibly bad, you won't excel at either. Bottom line, both classes are great tanks, it's solely up to the player to make the most of either.

    Personally, I feel my warrior has more control over his abilities, because they're not all CD-locked and several abilities you don't need to use on the CD for your normal threat rotation. The Paladin is fun and does have several perks, but having played all tank classes, I sometimes fell unable limited in my ability to save shit situations. Atleast that's my personal experience.

    On the other hand, I do always have to work more when tanking with my Warrior, but I'm a glutton for challenges.
