Which is the better tank, as far as difficulty goes?

After 5.0 I'd say they are about equal from a threat/survivability point of view.

Paladin got a little more complicated and warrior is a bit easier.

Right now Warrior tanks do better dps but that could change. Basically play whichever you enjoy more there is no wrong choice in this case.

Speaking as a prot warrior, tanking has been simplified a bit.

They basically removed sunder armor and rend so that all you do now is devastate, thunderclap, and revenge.

Prot paladins are amazing and easy since everything changed.

You just need to remember to actually have your hit/exp capped now and that Seal of Insight is the go to seal after you have threat.

Paladins. No questions asked.

You don't even need a healer.


No but seriously even without an insane amount of vengeance, you can heal yourself and your 5 man groups no problem. Talents: Sanctified Wrath and Execution Stance. Glyphs: Glyph of the Battle Healer, Alabastor Shield, and any other. Just get 7.5 percent hit/exp(2550 rating) and reforge into haste>=mastery and you are good to go.
