"Paladin requires being attacked to gain hate" - what do you mean by that? Paladins don't have hate, they have mana, and can do maximal damage from the start --Tharbur 20:20, 17 March 2008 (UTC)

They used the word "hate," by which i assume they meant aggro. They're not referring to rage. Most of a Paladins aggro, as I understand it, comes from reflective spells such as retribution aura. Cowlinator (talk) 00:37, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for clearing up the formulation. I agree with you, the author of these lines most certainly refers to a paladin's reflective spells. As I see it, paladins have only two reflective capabilities, the Retribution Aura and Holy Shield (Tier-7 Protection tree talent). On the other hand, paladins have capabilities that deal quite a lot of instant damage, e.g. Judgement of Righteousness and Holy Shock. I have no experience in off-tanking, as I am the healer mainly. Therefore I do not know, whether paladin off-tanks have problems generating aggro as described, or not. --Tharbur (talk) 07:24, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
The real question is why this article uses documents from 2005 that still record Feral Druids as a better MT option than Paladins. Having just read that article I found it generic at best and highly dated. --Amicusromanis (talk) 19:13, 16 February 2009 (UTC)


So how do you spell this? On the official website I can only find the term secondary tank. Rolandius Paladin (talk - contr) 08:29, 12 January 2009 (UTC)
