Wow Op/Ed: Have Warriors been Replaced as Main Tanks?

Woe to the Warriors

In this week's editorial Byron "Messiah" Mudry looks at yet another question that has come up in his guild recently. Since he and one other Paladin have started tanking for the guild in Karazhan (KZ) and Zul'Aman (ZA), several of the other players have asked why warriors are ever needed. Read what Messiah has to say on the topic.

As a Paladin tank I would love nothing more than to say that we are the end all and be all of tanking, however I see many times that a Warrior tank is flat out better than we are. For example, one problem fight I have is the Maiden in KZ since the silence is always interrupting everything I try to do. I end up sitting there spamming my spells over and over to actually get them through. The silence as never actually made me lose aggro, but is does hold my threat way down and is very annoying. On the other end of the scale though, it is very easy for a Paladin tank to hold Moroes and an add or two instead of having them CC'ed, Attumen and his horse, and any AoE group in an instance or Raid.

I really don't understand racism in the real world. People are what people are, regardless of skin pigmentation or where their ancestors came from. There's really only one real-world race - the Human Race - and I loathe everyone equally.
