WOW Paladin Leveling and Quest Guide

Leveling a Paladin is great fun but it also usually requires considerable flexibility. After a battle you may be healing your group and then go right back into battle as the partys tank. The Paladin character class is able to make these changes quickly and easily. The Paladin is primarily a melee class that favors the sword or mace but is not very useful at dealing long range damage. Not being very useful with long range damage is not much of a concern for the hand to hand fighting Paladin.

A quick breakdown of the races you may choose from as a Paladin:

If you have been playing world of warcraft for a while you might remember when the Paladin only had 2 races to choose from. You could play as a dwarf or a human and that was it. Either world of warcraft race worked great as a Paladin but limited the Paladin to play world of warcraft with not much variety. The humans ten percent bonus to reputation gained didn't benefit the Paladin much until you got to the higher levels. It is a shame that the world of warcraft Paladin can not make use of the dwarves Gun Specialization, but at leased the dwarves Cold Resistances and Stone Form ability are useful. Both races made for a fine Paladin in world of warcraft with little advantage to either one.

With the wow expansion (The Burning Crusade) the Paladin was offered the first horde race Paladin making the blood elf available. The new draenei race was also introduced as a alliance Paladin in world of

warcraft.

At the very start, no matter what character class or race you are leveling I recommend keeping it simple. If you don't learn how to best play a Paladin in world of warcraft right from the start you may miss out later in the game. Keep your fighting time minimal at first, fight a bit and then back away to make sure your ok. Pay close attention to questing and be sure to do every quest you can get your hands on.

Be sure to double check that you have done every wow quest in each zone you are in.

Each trainer in world of warcraft has lots to teach about leveling up so learn all they have to offer. And don't forget to look into what professions you might be interested in pursuing. Learning professions is a big part of the game, don't take them lightly. Some professions are better than others, you will find certain professions to be helpful to you in your early levels but others more beneficial as you get to the higher levels. It might be a little early to mention this, but try to save a little gold so that at level 20 you will be able to purchase a mount making leveling much quicker in wow.

Paladin soloing or playing with a party:

The Paladin has excellent fighting skills, and benefits from auras for both offense and defense plus self healing skills which are all of great benefit when playing solo. The Paladin is very well adapted to solo play and should take advantage of that fact. Play a Paladin with a party only when necessary, leveling up will go faster and you will get better stuff if you stick to solo play. The Paladin can be played as a tank and a healer which makes it a valuable team player when you are not playing solo.

Early on I recommend that you spec retribution which will give a bonus to your melee damage. If you prefer a one handed weapon along with a shield that’s fine , but I find that a good two handed axe, sword or hammer works the best. You want to think about pure damage dealing, dealing out as much damage as you can with every hit. With a 2 handed hammer you generally will be able to inflict more DPS to your enemy than most 1 handed ones will. Many lovers keep both a two handed and a one handed weapon with them at all times to handle multiple situations. Since the Paladin specializes in melee combat, getting good strength and stamina assisting armor such as mail should also be one of your priorities. Other bonuses will be helpful to you also but for now try to get armor with these two.
