Okay, so I've been reading a lot of the posts on here and I'm still not decided. I would like to here from other lvl 50 tanks about what builds you're using. From about lvl 30 on I was using a build with 14 reaver, 14 warlord, and then dropping the rest of the points in the paladin tree.(can't get it up just yet but I'll try to post my actual build soon).
One problem I've had consistently is losing aggro on large mobs. With groups of about 5 or less I never have a problem holding aggro. However, whenever I am trying to tank groups any bigger than that at all, especially the groups of little mobs like spiders or those spirit things in RD, I always lose one or two then have to use Sergeant's Order, Shield Throw, or Shield Charge to pull it back.
Now, at 50, I tried one T1 IT and the problem only became exacerbated. I lost aggro on every pull. Talking with my roommate we came to the conclusion that the Reaver Plague Bringer> Soul Sickness> Necrotic wounds simply was not enough to hold aggro and that the Paladin is more a Single Target / Party buff tank. When Reaver is only doing 30-40 damage a tick and my DPS is doing 900-2000 damage a tick my reaver skills don't mean sh*t.
The only positive I can find with my build is that the Pally SHOULD generate tons of threat, but that doesn't seem true now in the t1 scene.
SO... what is the best way to hold large mob aggro? Is my build sufficient and I just have to be super intensive about individually pulling anything I lose? Or is there a better way where I can just have the aggro and tank ahead? I would really appreciate some insight from t2 or Raid ready tanks.
