Picking a Profession
Since the Paladin is such a versatile class, you are pretty
much wide open when it comes to picking a good profession.
Commonly, players will select herbalism, alchemy or enchanting
since they do mesh so well with the class abilities. However,
it is a good idea to mix this up a bit by choosing a secondary
profession such as blacksmithing or mining to increase your
Leatherworking or skinning can be avoided if you choose
simply because you really don’t have much need for them.
However, if you are planning on using your Paladin to grind for
gold in certain locations, the skinning profession can be a
great secondary profession to have.
Fishing is becoming a more popular profession for Paladins,
since it can be a very lucrative way to get more gold. It does
take a lot of time however, so keep this in mind if you prefer
to spend your time questing instead of working on your

The Skills of the Paladin
We’ve already mentioned briefly what Paladins can do in a
group setting, but it is important to understand how each of
these three abilities can be used. The Paladin is a vital class
for any group to have simply because of these three
Tanking - This is the process of taking damage on yourself
to protect other players. In other classes, players will use
their pets to tank for them, especially if they are better at
ranged combat as opposed to melee fighting. A Paladin can tank
several enemies at once, with the use of special spells and
skills, making them incredibly useful in a bad situation. This
kind of support is vital as you get into the more difficult
Healing - Paladins have the ability to heal themselves,
members of their own group and other players. This really comes
in handy and is one of the main reasons that Paladins are so
sought after. This is a vital skill for the endgame, so pay
special attention to the spells connected with this
Damage - Due to their retribution tree, the Paladin is able
to increase the amount of damage that they can inflict on their
enemies. Again, this is a very important skill for the end game
and can be mastered along the way.
Putting it Together
When you put all of the skills and abilities together, it is
easy to see why so many players want to be a Paladin. It’s
always nice to be an asset to your group and this class really
gives you that option. There really cannot be too many Paladins
in any one group, particularly since they can each use a
different aura or blessing to enhance the group as a whole.
With their flexibility when it comes to fighting, the
abilities in their professions and the fact that they get
upgraded armor, this is really the perfect class for players
that are just starting out in this game. You’ll have a lot more
power to handle what the game has to throw at you and it can
prepare you to tackle other classes once you’ve mastered this
Overall, the Paladin is a class that is incredibly important to
the way this game is played.
