While Paladins and Druids may be viable tanks for instances and such, they can never be equivalent to a warrior who has a mere 15 points into the protection tree.Warriors can flat out generate more aggro faster than any class. The mere act of going into defensive stance increases your threat. In addition to the taunt ability (which warriors are the only ones to have a talent to reduce the cooldown on), they have more options for high rage generating activities. For solid, consistent aggro grneration, nothing beats sunder armor, revenge, and shield bash.If you do the math on aggro generation, no other class can even come close to a warrior. On the other hand, the vast number of rogues in plate armor have killed the class reputation. They have never learned how to tank. The pallies and the druids ARE learning how to tank becuase it's a good way to get in groups. A lot of warriors just take for granted, because of their class, they know how to tank.A good warrior tank will out-tank a good druid or pallie tank. Unfortunately, there seems to be more good druid and pallie tanks out there nowadays...
