Nihilum says No to Protection Paladins

Here is an interesting interview with Nihilum (the first guild to down Illidan) from WoW Insider. There is a brief discussion about Nihilum views regarding the protection paladin in end-game content.

Quick questions about classes: How many DPS warriors do you all use? Any Moonkin? Any tanking Paladins? Any enhancement Shamans?

We aim for efficiency. So no, we do not use any Moonkins, Protection Paladins, Retribution Paladins or anything that is way below the standard classes that can do a much better job at said task. We do however use bears to offtank and we sometimes bring 1-2 DPS warriors. Not because we need them for the DPS they provide, but for the buffs they give to our DPS. Overall it’s more efficient. Guilds that go with Protection Paladins and Moonkins will not do as well as the ones that bring an optimal raid setup. This is a fact.

Everyone has their own point of view of which class is better in end-game content. However I have to agree with his comments to a certain point but don’t underestimate a well-geared paladin tank.

    Things have of course changed for tankadins since this was quoted, but please note how things do change (from Maintankadin):
