So you want to take a beating, do you? You have heard that Paladins can now make solid tanks and want to try it out. Well, you’ve come to the right place. This guide will walk you through the basics of playing a protection based Paladin, or Tankadin as they are commonly called.

Playing a Tankadin can be a lot of fun but can be quite challenging, so come into it prepared. You do not have shouts, fast taunts, shield walls or any number of other amazing things a Warrior has. Yet you are every bit as capable as a Warrior tanking, it just takes a little bit different play style. It has also become much more viable now that we have our 2.0 talents, that include many nice new additions. We were ok before, but we can make an even more capable tank now, especially since we now have a taunt!

You can check out the whole guide here: How to play a Tankadin, and make comments on it in our Paladin forum here.
