World of Warcraft Paladin Guide
The WoW Paladin is probably one of the most
unique classes that combines physical ability with magic
to create a very powerful force. The Paladin class is the
most popular class for a reason. It’s considered the holy
warrior that excels not only at melee fighting but also in
healing, spell casting and tanking or taking hits for
other players. Groups need at least one Paladin if they
want to have a successful endgame and playing this class
at least once is highly recommended.
Once you have made the decision to play as a Paladin, you’ll
need to pick the race for your character. Elves and humans are
popular choices, but since this is a hybrid class, your options
are pretty open. It’s a good idea to start out with the race
that you are most comfortable with since this is a versatile

You’ll have to master both weaponry and healing if you want
to excel as a Paladin, but it is well worth your time. This is
a great class to pick if you’re not really sure which
professions you want to try or which style of warfare suits you
best. You can try both ranged and melee as a Paladin, until you
find the one that is right for you.
Paladins rely heavily on mana, so you are going to want to
manage this appropriately to get the most of out of this class.
It will be depleted when you cast a spell or when you are in a
battle, so make sure that you don’t lose too much. This will
result in a loss of health points and it does take quite a
while to rejuvenate your character when it drops too low.
The Tools of the Paladin
In addition to the typical armor and weapons, the Paladin
class has some unique tools that are beneficial to the entire
group. Let’s take a look at each one:
Auras - These are very powerful and can be
used to protect just the Paladin or the entire group. They will
protect the group within a 30 yard radius, so it is very
effective to use one of these while you are conducting a raid.
The best way to use auras is to have multiple Paladins in a
group so that different auras can be used at the same time.
Otherwise, only one can be used at any one time.
Seals - These are a special kind of spell
that is also unique to the Paladin class. They are used for
either regeneration or to increase your skills during a battle.
Only one can be used at any one time, but when managed
properly, they can be very useful. You can also use Seals
against your enemies. In this case, they usually have the
opposite effect of what they would grant to you. For example,
if you have a healing seal on yourself, it would deplete the
health of your enemy when used on them.
Blessings - This is the last unique item
for a Paladin but it is incredibly powerful. A Paladin can use
blessings to bestow certain gifts on an entire group or just
themselves. The effects of a blessing can last up to fifteen
minutes in some cases and can provide extra strength, extra
health or even extra skills.
