Yes, I've Seen Them

Yes, I have seen the new Wrath of the Lich King talents. My brain is on overload trying to assimilate all the information and it's likely to change once or twice before it's final form.

Based on what I know right now, I see every reason to continue Honorshammer as my main in Wrath of the Lich King.

I've spent so much time reading about stuff, I really don't have time to post.

One of the posters on Maintankadin summed up the situation pretty well.

When all is said and done:

Paladins vs Warriors:

Both got outstanding "offtanking utility"
Warriors get to give a 6sec shield wall every 30sec to one target.
Paladins get to give the entire raid 30% less dmg for 12sec every 4mins.

Warriors got AoE improvemnts:
Bloodbath + Thunderclap + Shockwave = 4-5target aoe tanking.
Paladins got Single target tanking improvements for almost every warrior equivalent.

Warriors get 4% less dmg still, but block a LOT less
Paladins take 4% more dmg, but block even more reliably than before.

We may have finally become equal but differently flavored tanks.
