    Strongest overall tanking class

    Hello,

    I've just resubbed after a prolonged absence, and decided to finally roll tank, something I wanted for years. Now, my question is which is the overall strongest class so far in MoP? I'm leaning towards Warrior, but I'm not quite sure.

    Seems to be Paladin by far.

    A poll would help you here more, most likely. I'll second Paladin right now with DKs as a consistent follow-up.

    Actually its Monks. They have the highest DPS potential, and also put out a significant amount of HPS.

    The problem is that they require skill to play. Imagine that.

    Well to my experience Death Knight tanks are by far the easiest to heal.

    no actually its paladin, monks are very strong, stronger then most give them credit for when played well i'll agree. but paladin just comes out better.

    In vanilla it was warriors.
    Ever since BC it's been Paladins.

    Since Cata there is no such thing. All of the tanks are capable of performing in all content and while there are certain fights where one particular tank shines over another, in the end they're all the same.

    We can't decide for you; you have to do the work yourself to make the decision.
