Defensive tanking mechanics are just the same as for warriors, so it is just fine for tankadins. I also use it for a long time now. Usually i used it to compare items by tankpoints pre T5 instances, where crushing immunity was still a problem.

Absolutely awsome mod for both Pallies and Warriors. Just make sure you dont listen to the item points assigned by tankpoints as they are biased towards Warrior stats (doesnt take into account spell dmg at all). The rest of it is highly useable to check your uncrushability in various gear sets.

The thing I love about tankpoints is the ability to edit your stats to check what a new item will do to your overall stats. This makes choosing between two similar pieces very easy!

The calculator is the reason you download it. Pretty much a requirement for any tank.

Isn't Tankadin better for that?

I've heard Ratings Buster is probably better for comparing items. (I use tank points and heal points, but will be traying out ratings buster soon).

Never used tankadin, don't have a need for it. (Sorry chlo!) The calculator in Tankpoints is pretty much unbeatable, dunno what Tankadin has.

A comparison between tankpoints and tankadin ... *shrugs*

It's a small download, you could see for yourself. Just a suggestion! :D <3

Well I'll check it out tonight but Invis brings up a good point that the main reason quite a few people use tankpoints is for the calculator. In fact, I disable all the tooltip options except for the difference in EH. The calculator alone has saved me assloads of money in regemming and enchant costs.

I'm with you @ Invisusira.

I use both right now and the tankpoints calc is way (!) better than the tankadin one. So i just use it because of the AD tracker, RF and taunt resist warnings.
Also, tankadin (even in minimized mode) takes up some additional space, and there seem to be no fubar plugin for it, yet. So if there was another addon for those 3 things, i would propably not use it any more.
