I leveled my paladin protection, and after me everyone in my guild did. Luckily for us, none of them decided to with to Retardins.What I found though is that once you've got very good gear (generic def plate from Karazhan eg), you can just as easily tank normal 5 man instance or even trash in 25 mans as a holy palading. And I don't even have to put blessing of salvation on shadow priests or warlocks, aggro is just fine. Compared to a def paly, holy shock is incredibly handy for snap aggro.My guild's MT1 is considering using a paly to tank some 25 man bosses or mobs, and he is one hell of a good protection warrior.Retribution Aura is like "Thorns" - no real spell damage coefficient, it's nothing you want on your whole party anyway - I've almost never used it, except when AoE grinding.Biggest problem for a paladin tank is not holding aggro but staying alive.
