Honestly? Its really dependent. I've ret-tanked Horsemen, Coren Direbrew, and Svala from H-UP (not by choice on the latter of the 3, tank went down and i was the only plate).I do not recommend tanking in ret though, early dungeons maybe, but you need to have a sword and shield and plate with stam (shouldn't be that hard though at early levels). I healed a group for blackfathom depths, and the tank had on healing heirloom shoulders and a green two-hander axe with just strength. I asked if he was tanking in that gear, then he tells me he's Dps now, and that Righteous Fury is a Dps talent.Thats not a paladin to rely on, when he can't tell the difference between a spell and its use, even when it should be obvious to someone whose had an 80 and had to of run groups to get the shoulders in the first place.Ret tanking is far from viable in current raids, but in a pinch a ret pally in good gear can serve as a replacement tank for a short time in dungeons and maybe raids, because of their baseline shield-wall and self-healing
