In FFXI the paladin with subbed warrior has a move called provoke. Is there any move for a Paladin in WoW that will help the Paladin keep hate. I looked through the Paladin's spells and abilities and couldn't find one that seemed like it worked that way. And if there isn't a "provoke" type move how will the Paladin keep hate?

Thank you for your time.

There's no provoke move. They have to keep hate through stuns and damage. They're not supposed to be warriors.

There are also no Paladin talents yet, so it is still up in the air as to what roll(s) they may lean toward in a party. Just based on their skill tree, they look more like a cleric with no armor restriction than anything else. Not exactly the stocky meat shield of FFXI.

The role of a paladin is a big unclear to the player base right now. They aren't primary tanks - warriors can't even hold up for long under some circumstances, and paladins don't have anything on a warrior in that regard besides Lay of Hands once per hour. They aren't primary healers - they can heal for half as much as a priest can, per heal, and get 3, maybe 4 heals per bar of mana. They aren't DPS - they only have one ability that really relates to their damage. They aren't CC - they can't even tank mez something they can't get aggro on. Paladins are very versatile and useful, but not at any one thing that a group would need them for. Their utility really doesn't justify much other than they can back-up rez since there aren't enough priests to consistently get two in a group.
Only the exceptions can be exceptional.

The PLDs are not a great tank in this game. The WARs on this game have a taunt to get the fiend of the casters. So a WAR will be the best bet if you want to be a good tank.
