PVE Protection Paladin Guide, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

Protection Paladin Class Overview

PVE Protection Paladin Guide, WoW WotLK 3.3.5a

Welcome to my Protection Paladin Tank guide for World of Warcraft WotLK 3.3.5a. This will be a short guide describing what Spec, Talents, Glyphs, Gems and Enchants you will need in order to succeed in a raid. In the end of the guide there are also some tips and basic rotation for the class.

Protection Paladin is a solid choice for a tank. Paladin blocks a lot of damage with his shield spells, while also possessing a strong self- and raid-healing capabilities. Excels in tanking multiple targets and fairly easy to play.

Talent Tree

Optimal talent tree for raids. You have two spare points to spend. I'd suggest Pursuit of Justice , Judgements of the Just or Vindication

Gameplay & Rotations

To put it simple, there is one main rotation for a Protection Paladin: the 969 rotation. It uses 5 skills: two with 6 sec cooldown and tree with 9 sec cooldown. Use a 9sec skill, then a 6sec skill, then a 9sec skill, then another 6sec skill and so on.

9 sec CD:
Judgement of Light
Holy Shield
6 sec CD:
Hammer of the Righteous
Shield of Righteousness


Addons play quite a big role in World of Warcraft and should be used by everyone. The question is, what addons do YOU need? Truth is, every player decides for himself what addons does he need or want. Now, there is a list of must-have addons, without them - you won't be taken seriously, or your game will be much more complicated.

Check out our Addons Page which will provide you with download links and configuration information. Addon version is correct for WoW WotLK 3.3.5a.
