Nope, if you try to spellsteal a paladin in a bubble you will get the "immune" message and you will not get the bubble or any other buff that the paladin has active.
bet pala's whined in the beta, "oh noes i'm vunerable!!! i can't HS"

Quite often my own gear has less stamina than other tanks - however - I have more defense, parry, and dodge than the others. This results in the little blue words in SCT (Parry/Block/Dodge) coming up far more often. It also means that odds of me getting crit in tanking gear are near zero. I've been told by countless healers that I'm 'easy' to heal as my mitigation is high - I don't require as much spamheal.
Not to mention that your warriors should be looking at replacing T3. I'm pretty sure there's a few better bits and pieces lying around - I know the only bit of my old armourkit I have left is my Wrath helmet (That I want GONE!).
.... Anyway, how this topic got onto tanking I durno. Generally whats been said has been good and sensible, but takes time and skill to learn. Also, one thing on Krom's list that was missing (Positioning/Mitigation/Threat) was Priority. More often than not in TBC instances you can be handling 5+ mobs at once, and at least one is BOUND to run off somewhere. A good tank knows what mobs to pick up, when, and who from.
More often than once I've let some cloth-wearing healermob get 'tanked' by a rogue while I peel some melee-nasty off a healer. It sounds like common sense, but I've seen too many tanks panic and mix priorities up.and as for the if the mt dies the raid dies, that is true but our mt is my bro and he doesn't tend to piss me off, but i don't hesitate to let others die if they piss me off
Not entirely true. On Chromaggus, for example, I've leapt in at the last 10% after our MT died and tanked the last parts of the fight in DPS gear. If your MT dies and the raid wipes - slap your other warriors and let them know they should ALWAYS be prepared to tank.
That is soooo true with the druids who thinks armor and hp are the only things that counts when being a tank. Parry, and most importantly, BLOCK and DEFENCE are much more important than simply hp.
Warriors get 10% less damage in defensive stance, which more than makes up for the druid's armor. Paladins takes 6% less damage from ALL sources and 10% less from spells. Paladin has base block chance+60% due to abilities which makes a paladins and warrior a better tank than a druid in most cases.
Not skilled people make this mistake, and tries to get a tank with only +sta and tons of armor, instead of tanks with REAL tanking stats like defence, block etc
