I found that after 45 is where you really see pld grow as a tank. I have my pld to 50 and am working on valor gear. It seems like war is better at the beginning, but now I see how much I love my job. I have played as both. It's worth it if you want to be a main tank and really have high health and hate (enmity). Personally I think pld is better, but I might be biased. The cross class abilities from mar make it worth it. You get the best of both worlds.

I might be missing something, but isn't it kind of crappy that Paladins lose out on a lot of helpful cross-class abilities that are available to Gladiators?
If I were to switch to Paladin I would lose 70% of my (hypothetical) cross-class build: Raging Strikes, Invigorate, Hawkeye, Featherfoot, Second Wind, Keen Flurry, and Haymaker.
While Shield Oath and Cover would undoubtedly be good for tanking (especially in situations where you can't prevent other party members from taking damage by simply holding aggro), do they sufficiently make up for this shortcoming?
Maybe I'm incorrectly assuming that Hallowed Ground will cause enemies to lose interest in you? I'm only at level 28.

Both Defiance and Shield Oath will increase effective hp by 25%.
If you take 20% less damage the effect to health is 1.0/.8 --> 1.25.
That said, what really matters is the Wrath 15% increase to healing taken, but there Warrior definitely falls short of Paladin in terms of how much healing is needed to keep the tank alive. Even if the two passives/buffs were equal, the stronger the boss is compared to your heals, the further that pushes PLD ahead (though, vice-versa on weak enemies).
A 2.0 Warrior is essentially a matter of big numbers when in small ponds. It can practically self-heal WP and AK bosses, but as soon as something is seriously bigger than it is it falls behind Paladins, who scale with the enemy rather than being limited to their own stats.
(Note: Post made prior to patch)
2.1 Warriors will still likely fall behind Paladins in situations of extended streaming damage, but can burst mitigate more often. This still makes Inner Beast-Infuriate-Inner Beast more effective than Sentinel, lasting 12 compared to Sentinel's 10 seconds, and at a third of the cooldown (in addition to the 2-minute CD Sentinel's reduction currently listed for Vengeance), but consider also that PLD is still walking around with a permanent Rampart and one more main mitigation ability than Warrior (IB[~20-], Foresight, Vengeance, (Featherfoot), (Storm's Path[7.5]), vs. Rampart, Foresight, Sentinel, Bulwark, (Flash), (Hallowed Ground).

according to SE they say that pld has the upper hand on survivability over warrior which is the reason that warrior will be getting a buff
||Oct 22, 2013 - 15:11:48 | Location: Nowhere, In a Box|
As for the tank buffs, Defiance is actually better due to the other effects it has besides HP+ and enmity+. As you stack Wrath you also get a 15% increase to healing taken (and crit). Paladins, however, have the ability to block as well as a no-cd stun. Both types of tank are necessary, both are just as good in many situations.

Shield Oath scales with damage, Defiance scales with WAR's health. It's easy to see why Shield Oath is better.
||Oct 10, 2013 - 08:47:30 | Location: Unknown, United States|
In regards to defiance looking better than shield oath I would actually say that shield oath is a bit better than defiance. Both increase survivability by exactly the same amount, yet shield oath has a smaller damage reduction (20% vrs 25%). The math is that a 25% hp increase is exactly 1/5th of your new hp total which is now 125%.

Well i was playing around with a equal lvl warrior in an instance last night and we were taking turns tanking mobs. I gotta say it was different. Fact of the matter is paladin is gonna hold hate better most of the time.... I simply had more "oh crap" buttons to hit. Secondly with the cycling of job abilities and shield oath I took significantly less damage. His mobs died a little faster while my mobs were a little less mana intensive on our healer. At this stage in the game it doesnt feel like a huge difference.
||Oct 01, 2013 - 17:19:56 | Location: Nowhere, In a Box|
I'm a lvl 38 Paladin and I was enjoying it but I can't help but think that Warriors are better, key point being WAR's Defiance granted at lvl 30
"Increases maximum HP by 25%, while lowering damage dealt by 25% and increasing enmity.
Effect ends upon reuse."
And the PLD version granted at lvl 40
"Reduces damage received by 20%, while lowering damage dealt by 20% and increasing enmity. Cannot be used with Sword Oath.
Effect ends upon reuse." Seems unfair that the WAR gets 25% more health while the PLD gets a damage reduction (Yes I understand that Tank require Damage Reduction skills) and the ten lvl difference also seems slightly unfair.
Just appears in my eyes slightly unbalanced although I am sure there is a reason for it

Best cross class IMO is Stoneskin, Forsight, Bloodbath, Mercy Stroke and Cure.
Skull Sunder is completely pointless, Protect is better left to healers, raise cant be use in combat, fracture only raise your dps slightly and doesnt generate much enmity.
||Sep 25, 2013 - 13:14:32 | Location: Nowhere, In a Box|
how to use the cross class ability?
||Sep 03, 2013 - 14:00:32 | Location: Nowhere, In a Box|
are these the only cross class skliss for paladin?
because gladiator is able to use a lot more refering to the guide.
||Sep 01, 2013 - 17:59:11 | Location: Nowhere, In a Box|
Skull Sunder and Bloodbath icons wrong way round
