Paladin vs Warrior

I know what you're thinking; "Not another comparison thread!" Fear not my fellow tanks for I am not here to compare but simply state that in my need for a better realm I am having to reroll and deciding between Paladin and Warrior has become excruciatingly difficult. But I have realized that Warrior tier gear is ugly as sin and nothing can compare to Paladin tier 2!

Agreed that the MoP warrior tier sets are pretty ugly so far, but the warrior challenge mode set is far better looking than the paladin one.

Oh this is true, the Paladin set looks like a bug. And the Warrior t4 isn't bad, especially on a Tauren. Dang it Denizi, you are making me contradict my decision >.< :p

I've always liked the paladin sets, most tiers anyway (T5 *cough*). It just feels like a little extra work is put into those sets to make sure paladins look... flashy.

I thought so too; but honestly T15 looks alright if you don't pair it with its helm.

Though the LFR colors can DIAF; too loud. This isn't T2 and I'm not a Paladin, dammit.

Warrior CM gear makes all other CM gear sets look like punks.

Wanna play a class that you can faceroll? Roll pally.

Wanna play one that requires you to stay checked in and know wtf you're doing? Roll warrior.

Having tanked on all 3 plate classes extensively since Wrath and into MoP, I feel I can fairly say that.

Yeah, too bad you can't get it anymore :( T6 is nice as well. I personally use T2 for my dps set and a mix of BC items for my tanking gear.

T7 is a recolor, and the original is available (sometimes) through the BMAH. If no one's bidding against you, the full 8 pieces will cost you 80k.

Both are excellent choices, as I tank along side a paladin. I wouldn't worry too much about tier looks, as you can always xmog into something you do like.

With that being said, I don't know if it gets any better than a warrior just because of the mobility you can bring, plus the amazing raid utility. We have a fury warrior that runs with us, and having the ability for two rallying cries, skull banners, and demo banners, is awesome!

I absolutely love tanking on my warrior, and I've heard paladin tanking is quite boring after a while. I've only played warrior and brewmaster tanks though.

Here is a 50 minute video of preach discussing his views on the tanks so far. Please keep in mind, those are just his opinions, and everybody will not agree with them. If you have any RL friends that play a paladin or warrior tank, see if you can try them out in a dungeon or LFR and see how it goes.
