Yeah, at this point prot paladins and warriors gear with close to 99% similarity. Both use the same shields, same tanking pieces... the prot paladin that I tank with and I are wearing profoundly similar gear. The only difference is that he'll more often gem for agility than I will, while if I need a red/purple socket choice I'll go for Exp to hit 26 (he can glyph for that with SoV I believe).Ultimately we don't even really tank all that differently. I use Revenge and Cleave, he uses Seal of Cleave and Hammer, we both have a Shield Slam, his block ability is better for uptime but mine can block for more, I use Shockwave and TC for AoE while he drops Consecration, homogenization has really led to both specs being practically identical in terms of what gear they look for. Warriors are probably the more effective mobility tank and have higher singtle target threat if they can generate some rage, paladins still better at AoE and at generating threat up front.I wouldn't mind if warrior tanks stepped away from shields, or in some other way managed to distinguish ourselves from paladins.
