I'm about to make a new character on a pvp world so I can play with my healer friend in warzones. Anyone got any suggestions on the best tank for guarding healers in pvp, and what makes them the best.
A Guardian/Jugg. Guardian Leap/Intercede combined with Force Leap and the Guardian CDs give Guardians the best utility and ally assistance capability of all of the PvP tanks. Shadow tanks have better damage and node interrupting/guarding capability, but they can't do as well with specifically guarding a healer. VGs just don't have the same toolbox (only 1 real survivability CD, negligible utility; their only real advantage is Harpoon, which Shadow tanks match with Force Pull while they bring even more on top of it).
