Protection Paladin Class Overview
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.
