Prot Paladin vs Prot Warrior

Paladin
I am leveling this toon for fun in the hopes he can replace my Blood DK for soloing old content. I was wondering as for PvP if a Prot Pld fought a Prot War whom do you think would win?

I asked a similar question in the Warrior forum and they think Pally would win because he could heal during stuns.

Do you have any issues with Prot Warriors?
A Prot Warrior will never be as good as a Blood DK for soloing. If your hope was finding a better tank for that, then you're wasting your time with the Warrior. That isn't to say they're not doable. They're more than doable, but they're just not as good.

DKs and Paladins are what you want for soloing, because they both have large on-demand healing and absorb shielding.

but they are epic with the whole second wind... They are effectivly immortal due too it.


Second wind is nice and all, but it won't keep you alive without healers in Cataclysm content.

Warriors would be fine for Vanilla through Wrath (might have some trouble with ICC or Ulduar, though), but even with Second Wind their healing isn't as potent as a Paladin's or DK's.
what... Paladins heals shut down because all their abilities are 1 type of magic you cant heal when you get stunned during casting and even after the stun or interupt you gotta wait for the gcd second wind is auto heal. prot paladin heals in my experience scale down during pvp.


This isn't PvP. We won't be stun-locked all day long while soloing old content.

Kael'thaS fight can have you stunned disoriented feared most of the 3rd phase.
I've not played a DK. My warrior just dinged 90 today...but so far my paladin owns everything as far as old content goes. I took on Patch as ret and won, thanks to my alchemy rejuvs...man they heal good with my alchemy trinket.

Summary, if you want another toon to solo old content with, roll a paladin in my opinion.
