Paladins are one of the most versatile classes in the game, able to Heal, DPS, or Tank. One of the most challenging things to do in the World of Warcraft is to tank and to do it well. That's were our guide to Paladin Tanking steps in to fill you in on all the details on how to play one of the most rewarding class types there are. Our Paladin tanking guide has now been updated to cover all the new World of Warcraft: Cataclysm changes to the class.

Gear for a Tanking Paladin is pretty easy in theory, but turns into a constant juggling act of micro-management in reality. In theory you want to stack avoidance to the point where you can not suffer a normal hit, have enough stamina to survive any hit, and enough threat causing ability to hold the boss on you instead of on your DPS. Actually, that doesn’t look so simple does it?

You can find all the details in our Paladin Tanking Guide.
