    What gives prot paladins a higher stamina increase than prot warriors?

    A guildie (prot paladin) of mine has 17782 stamina on his gear with gems and enchants.

    I (prot warrior) have 19298 stamina on my gear with gems and enchants.

    As far as I am aware both prot warriors and prot paladins get +5% stamina from plate specialization and +15% from choosing protection specialization.

    Can anyone explain why he ends up having a higher +stamina after talents/passives (and thus a higher health pool)?

    The numbers are all unbuffed and I checked (and double checked) my sums for gear + gems + enchants, so please don't ask about this (profession bonusses are acounted for as well).

    Update - question answered:

    The discrepancy in stamina is caused by the paladin protection passive "Guarded by the Light" providing 25% stamina as opposed to the 15% warriors get from "Unwavering Sentinel". Tooltips have not yet been updated to reflect this it seems.

    Paladins get 25% from guarded by the light, not 15%.

    "Guarded by the Light now increases your total Stamina by 25%, up from 15%."

    But that's supposed to be on PTR, not live. Weird.
    Either way, I would not be surprised if blizzard messed something up after all this shit we've been through already since MoP launch...

    Most, if not all, of the class changes on the PTR are just updated tooltips for things that have been hot fixed into live for weeks.

    It was hotfixed shortly after MoP launched. Tooltips do not get updated in hotfixes.

    Those patch notes are mostly old hotfixes.

    They already said hotfix tooltip updates on PTR are changes that are already on live, not new ones afaik.

    Don't warriors get 25% damage reduction in Defensive stance though which is a bit better than the other tanks?

    You'd think the 8th Anniversary was the Cheese Anniversary to go with all the whine.

    Between Defensive Stance and Unwavering Sentinel, they get both 25% damage reduction and 25% increased armor (but only 15% stamina, the least of the five tanks).

    It is 25%, they changed it late beta. It was to keep prot paladins from turning into "spikey" damage tanks similar to dks cataclysm. There was a q and a about it after the patch.
