name says it all. a warrior is for killing more. where as a pally is another name for knight. aka holy protector. (tank)
pallies were meant to be tanks. and they can and will tank anyway you gear them. Just how blizz made them from the get go.
this may start some disagreements.
as far as the paladins being tanks from the get go. Its all in the story line. and if paladins had the rest of there tanking abilities in vanilla. why would you be anything else?
And a paladin is a knight. and knights protect. and to list some famous paladins in RL history..
well the Templar knights..untill the king of France had them all killed on friday the 13th (the first reason why Friday the 13th is bad)
prob where blizz got the talent shield of the Templar.
On my pally i have the same avoidance as a warrior if not better.. its just the gear. and if need be woot holy shield +30% block aoe tanking ...
and now with the seal of cleave, aoe tanking as a pally is killing dps. hit 10k in icc on trash in the first room.
bad ass pally tanks. tank, cleanse, heal and all the other stuff pallies do all at the same time.
