"Threat: Paladins should have no trouble generating threat."I would have to disagree with this. My main is pally tank, and while threat generation isn't usually a problem, there's the occasional person who can pull off me, say, a melee DPS pulling 10k on trash every pull. I've been a tank for 2 years now, and I have to say it's never easy and requires a lot of concentration, no matter the class. I'm also leveling a (now) level 30 warrior, and I have a 80 DK who's tanking as well. I have no problem with threat on any of them, rarely have problems surviving gear/level appropriate encounters.So it's not just because a pally has good aoe threat that they can magically keep aggro on everything. Imo, warriors have a lot better oh shit buttons when it comes to keep threat that pallies. Apart from their taunts, everything a pally does is based on cooldowns, so there's never a time where they can add extra threat like sunders or cleaves can for a warrior, or rune strikes for a DK. While it's rare someone dies from taking aggro on my pally, as I notice it quickly, or the mob is dead before it's a problem, I'd like to say it's not magic, even though it might seem like it is.
