But the bigger question is whether or not you can remember that information once in the heat of a PvP battle.
For the best guide in PvP
Visit the site of the PvP Bible Here
When it comes down to it, much of the PvP in WoW is really designed to be a team effort.
Try and go it solo and you could wind up dead.
Matched one-on-one, certain classes will almost always beat other classes.
Because of this, there are a lot of times where a specific Paladin PvP guide on how to fight, say PvP Hunters, will be relatively useless.
Unless you have photographic memory, you probably aren’t going to remember that specific rotation of Paladin PvP spells to fight a Hunter instead of a Mage.
And try to refer to the guide in the middle of a fight and you are certain to wind up dead before you get past the first page!
So here is a basic Paladin PvP guide for fighting casters and hunters (these are basically classes that won’t hit you with melee damage).

- Use your Blessing of Freedom.
Nearly every class that can hit you from a distance can do so with a spell that will slow you up.
Throwing up Blessing of Freedom at the start of the fight will allow you to get some damage done before this happens.
- Use stuns, particularly for long fights.
One thing that many Paladin PvP guides fail to mention is that healers will often try to heal themselves.
If you can get a good stun in then you can help keep this from happening, and by the time a longer fight is over the cooldown will be ready to go for the next fight.
- If you can, cast Repentance and then a Judgement.
This Paladin PvP spell combo will allow you to get a critical hit as well as an instant Flash of Light heal so that you can keep your own health up.
Judgement of Justice is a good option for PvP Paladins.
- Be ready for Fear and similar effects.
If you are a Human PvP Paladin, then make sure Every Man for Himself is ready to go.
Otherwise, have a trinket ready.
- Worst case scenario.
Spam your instant attacks and bubble if you need to protect yourself.
Your bubble will also help you to ward off any polymorphing spells from PvP Mages.

Cataclysm Preview for Paladins
Expansions are always met with a combination of anticipation and dread.
Will the new changes make your character more fun to play or are you about to get “nerfed”?
Let’s start with spells
Part of the fun of leveling up is earning new spells:
Level 81: Blinding Shield. This spell will cause damage to all nearby targets as well blinding them. There is a chance that this spell will only work if your opponent is actually facing you, similar to the Radiance ability done by Eadric the Pure in TOC. You will have to have a shield to use this spell
Level 83: Healing Hands. Healadins yay!! You are getting a new healing spell. This spell turns you into your own personal healing totem; and gives you the ability to radiate heals to nearby players. The range is short but the spell long enough that you can cast off a few other heals at the same time.
Level 85: Guardian of Ancient Kings. You will get a temporary pet that looks something like the Resurrection spell from Warcraft III. This pet will act as your guardian and will have different effects depending on your spec. Retribution Paladins will have a guardian that does damage to the enemy, Protection Paladins will have a guardian that absorbs damage, and Holy Paladins will have a guardian that will help them heal.
This affect will not last long and will not have a traditional pet bar, but should prove to be a viable ally when the Paladin needs a hand.
Of course a few new spell changes aren’t all that Paladins can expect from Cataclysm. All Paladins will start out with Crusader Strike, which should make it easier for them to level up at the lower levels. Cleanse will now dispel debuffs on friendly targets, diseases, and poisons.
Blessing of Might will be changed to give Wisdom as well, meaning that Paladins will not need to give specific buffs to certain classes in their group. Holy Shock will now be available to all Paladins as a core healing spell.
Talents and Mastery
The talent tree changes are some of the most talked about changes in the internet forums. All of the classes are seeing some big changes as the talent trees are completely reworked.
Retribution and Holy Paladins will see some changes in their defensive capabilities. This will allow them to have more offensive capabilities to really shine in PvP play, making PvP Paladins a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield again.
Retribution in particular should see more PvP utility, giving Paladins more options should they choose to participate in PvP. Sacred Shield will have a longer duration and be limited to one target.
Beacon of Light will be adjusted so that it saves Paladins their global cool downs and targeting time instead of just mana.
Holy Paladins should be able to hold their own as a main healer if they wish, but to make sure that Holy Paladins aren’t seen exclusively as tank healers they will also see some changes to the Holy tree to provide other big heals.
Spirit will be used as the mana regeneration stat for Holy Paladins.
Flash of Light will still be a fast heal, but will be expensive in terms of the mana needed to cast it
Mastery spells are the most interesting part of the talent trees, giving players an incentive to stick with a certain tree.
Retribution Paladins will focus on Melee Damage and Melee Critical Damage, and will have a Mastery of Holy Damage, where all Holy Damage spells will do an increased amount of damage.
Holy Paladins will focus on Healing and Meditation and will earn the Mastery of Critical Healing effect. All healers will get Mediation, which effects their spirit-to-mana conversion. Critical Healing Effect will allow Holy Paladins to do even bigger heals when their healing spells crit.
Protection Paladins will focus on Damage Reduction and Vengeance and will have Block Amount. Vengeance is the conversion for damage received to attack power that is shared by all tanks, while Block Amount will allow Protection Paladins to absorb more damage with their normal blocks than Warrior tanks.
Currency Completely Altered
If you were farming for PvP points, you will find a dramatic change in the currency system.
All of the previous Arena Points, Honor Points, Marks of Honor, Stone Keeper’s Shards, Spirit Shards, and Venture Coins have been converted to the new system.
The breakdown was as follows:
- Wintergrasp Marks of Honor = 19.08 Honor Points for each one
- Venture Coin = 3 Honor Points for each one
- Battleground Mark of Honor = 2.976 Honor Points for each one
- Stone Keeper’s Shard = 1.6 Honor Points for each one
- Spirit Shard = 1 Honor Point for each one
- Old Arena Points = 0.85 Honor Points for each one
- Old Honor Points = 0.024 Honor Points for each one
Going forward, Honor Points will be awarded in place of Marks or Shards for all PvP play excepting Arena. In Cataclysm Arena and the highest Battleground season players receive Conquest Points.
Trimmed down Talent Tree
Blizzard’s goal was to make the choices more meaningful, though there is some argument about whether or not this was achieved.
To achieve this goal Blizzard cut down each tree to just 31 points, at the same time adjusting when and how many talent points are awarded as you level.
This means that players get rid of the fluff but still get to keep the talents that provide new spells and abilities.
This also cuts back on some of the extreme difference between PvP and PvE builds, allowing players to take any spec into the battlegrounds successfully and eliminate the need to spend the dual talent specialization on a strictly PvP build.
Reforging is a new skill that was implemented with Patch 4.0.1 in preparation for Cataclysm. It allows players to trade part of one stat on their gear for another that they find more useful, with some restrictions. This can only be done on gear with an item level of 200 or more.
Reforging will cost your character the same amount as it would to vendor an item. When done, you can exchange 40% of the stat you don’t want for one that you do. Only certain stats can be reforged, and the skill is not intended for use on every item. Instead, the goal of Reforging is to make more gear usable by more classes, reducing the need for disenchanting or vendoring of unwanted items.
Reforging can be done by any player at the Arcane Reforger in a capital city. Simply ask the nearest guard for directions if you do not already know where the Arcane Reforge is located. Items can be restored at the Arcane Reforger for no additional cost if you change your mind.
Understand Mastery Rating
One of the stat changes that came with patch 4.0.1 was the addition of Mastery Rating, found on the higher level gear. This stat helps you get more benefit from your Mastery, a new talent specialization that can be learned from a trainer only once you hit level 80.
Every class has the choice of three different Mastery options, dependent on the spec that you have opted for.
Here is a look at these new spells for Paladins.
- Holy Paladins earn the spell Illuminated Healing. With this spell targets will get an absorb shield that is equal to 10% of the amount they were healed with a direct healing spell. The shield will last for 8 seconds and each Mastery point will increase the absorb amount by 1.25%.
- Protection Paladins earn the spell Divine Bulwark. This spell will increase your chance to block melee attacks, starting at an 18% chance and increasing by 2.25% for each Mastery point.
- Retribution Paladins earn the spell Hand of Light. This spell gives you a chance to grant Hand of Light with your auto attacks. This means that your next Holy Power ability will not use any Holy Power but will still cast as if 3 Holy Power were consumed. This chance starts at 8% and increases by 1% for each Mastery point.
With all of the new changes to talent trees and Mastery Blizzard have made it easier to personalize your character to fit any situation.
Let me ask you a question;
Are you looking to pick up a Paladin PvP guide because you love the satisfaction that comes from killing off enemy players.
You might be searching because you want to improve your talents and playing skills.
Either way, if you plan on PvPing as a Paladin there is one other thing that you will want to consider, do you have the best guide to PvP paladin gear?
One of the biggest advantages of spending a lot of time in the Battlegrounds is that you can basically pick up awesome Paladin gear for free.
Paladin PvP Guide To Honor Points;
Every Paladin PvP Battleground will award you Honor Points.
The new system makes it possible for you to join in with PvP battles and earn points for honorably killing the enemy.
Your points can then be saved up and spent the same as hard cold cash, on things like armor and weapons.
If your rating is at least 1200, then you can buy many pieces of Paladin PvP armor for points alone.
You don’t have to continue playing to safeguard your points.
They’ll accumulate like savings in the bank, just like the silver or gold you get by killing monsters or finishing your quests.
You can’t lose them and they don’t diminish with time.
There used to be a ranking system associated with Honor, but thankfully that is no longer the case so you don’t have to hold a top rank to be part of it.
Stop by the Officer’s Barracks in either Stormwind or Orgrimmar, depending on your faction, and check out the Deadly and Furious Gladiator sets.
Or you can stop at the Dalaran sewers for the set pieces.
You will likely only be able to buy one or two items at a time, but with enough time as a Paladin in the PvP Battlegrounds you can gradually build or replace your entire set.
Paladin PvP Guide To Arena Points
If you have played a PvP Paladin in the Arena, then you can use your Arena Rating to buy top Paladin gear as well.
The Arena is a separate, fairly modern, form of PvP competition found in The Burning Crusade.
The amount of Honor Points any one of us can build up at present has been set at 75,000, but, you can expect that number to change when it’s felt that it will benefit the game as a whole.
Again, to cash in for gear, you will need to stop by the Dalaran Sewers or the Officer’s Quarters of your appropriate main city.
Check out the Furious Gladiator and Relentless Gladiator sets for some amazing bonuses that will supplement your Paladin PvP talents.
Paladin PvP Guide To Marks Of Honor
And an Arena Rating is still necessary when purchasing some items.
Each reward requires different Marks of Honor and/or Honor Points.
Many players who enjoy PvP will look to Wintergrasp as an outlet.
The Wintergrasp battleground is a bit different from the others, so you may want to look to a Paladin PvP guide and find out how to appropriately attack or defend.
Besides allowing you access to a special instance, you can also earn Wintergrasp Marks of Honor.
These Marks can be exchanged for ‘Titan Forged’ Paladin PvP armor, which has an item level of 226 and offers you some of the best possible Paladin PvP gear bonuses in the game.

Hi, glad to see you back at my Paladin PvP Guide site
Now let’s face it, there’s nothing more annoying when you are a seasoned PvP Warrior, Hunter, whatever, than to go into Warsong and have some noob (who of course is carrying the flag) ask what he’s supposed to be doing with it.
And while you may get a few eye rolls at level 20, at level 80 it just won’t be tolerated.
So if you are just now thinking about going into PvP with your Paladin, here is a basic Paladin PvP guide with regard to protocol, what you should and shouldn’t be doing.
Want a more complete guide?
- Protect the squishies, particularly if they are your healer.
As a PvP Paladin, if you aren’t healing, then you should be protecting the healer.
Blessing of Protection is a good PvP Paladin spell for keeping cloth-wearers alive during a fight.
- Don’t just stand there if you get crowd controlled.
Any good Paladin PvP guide will warn you that other classes will try to use crowd control spells on you, particularly the casters and hunters, as this allows them to get out of the range of your melee damage and rain down some evil PvP spells.
Be sure to make use of your Cleanse or Blessing of Freedom PvP Paladin spells.
- Don’t run out of mana.
This is probably the biggest PvP Paladin mistake you can make.
Get a Judgement or your Seal of Wisdom up and working, and take time to drink something or use a mana pot if you are getting low.
- You are the healer, even when you’re not.
While many Paladin PvP guides will focus on giving hurt to the enemy, you must remember that you are also one of the few classes that can heal.
That means that if your healer goes down and you still have mana, even if you are purely a Retribution Paladin, you will be expected to heal.
Poor heals are better than no heals at all.
Of course, if you are going to roll a PvP Paladin, then reading a Paladin PvP guide is a really good place to start.
In my opinion the PvP Bible is the best guide for Paladins, Get Yours Here
But if you are just testing the waters, the above tips should help get you started and keep you from looking like a total noob.
Just make sure that you know how to capture the flag before Warsong starts.
I’ll admit it; I’m probably one of the most skeptical people out there when it comes to spending money on a Paladin PvP guide, or any WoW PvP guide for that matter.
But I really wanted to make a PvP Paladin – I love the thrill of the battlegrounds and the challenge that comes from playing other real players – when you play as much as I do the PvE mobs become all too predictable.
I’d seen other players out there totally dominate the playing field.
But getting people to take me seriously was another matter – after all, Paladins aren’t quite as good as Warriors when it comes to offense, and most players prefer a Priest when looking for heals.
So I eventually broke down and started to look for a Paladin guide that could help me.
I wasted a lot of good playing time looking over various WoW PvP guides, most I saw were just rehashed noob level stuff, outdated, inaccurate or all three.
Finally someone recommended the PVP Bible, which includes a total PvP strategy guide, and I decided to give it a try .
I am so glad I did!
What really helped me was the WoW PvP strategies guide!
For starters, the Gear and Talent guides discussed the various PvP Paladin builds and PvP Paladin talents so I was able to set my Paladin up to be as powerful as possible (of course, be prepared to spend some gold redoing your talent tree).
Then I learned how to beat every other class (including otherPvP Paladins) with step-by-step battle techniques!
I used to hate Warlocks and their DOTs…now I can take them on as easily as anyone else.
I’d used Mods like Gatherer to help me make money, but this guide also tells you the bestPvP Mods to download – I had no idea such things existed.
And the best part was the PvP tutorials, making it easy to take strategies straight from the PvP guide and use them in the game.
Click here if you want to see the PvP Strategy Guide I used.
I’ve never had so much fun doing PvP!
I’m now in the process of building the perfect Arena team so I can get even better gear and have the best PvP Paladin possible.

Paladin PvP Guide – Paladin PvP Tips
So you want to be at the top of your battle group? Then a Paladin PvP guide is a must.
But just how do you create the best PvP Paladin? Here are some Paladin PvP tips to get you started.
Paladin PvP tips
One of the most important things to do during a PvP battle is to make the best use of your Judgements.
With the Retribution talent (and many players will argue that best Paladin PvP talents come from the Retribution tree) Judgements of the Wise you will be able to do high damage plus gain Replenishment to regain mana back.
So spamming Judgements can help you to knock the enemy out quickly.
Another important thing to do is to keep an eye on your mana.
Mana is needed for all of your abilities, so if you get too low you are going to find yourself at the graveyard waiting on the rez timer.
Learn what Blessings, Seals, and Judgements work best against your various foes.

A common complaint on the battle field is the lack of healers, since many of the healing classes spec for DPS for PvP action.
So you could find yourself on your own when it comes to maintaining your health.
The Art of War talent will make it easy to cast your Flash of Light when it procs, so make use of that.
It is probably the most mana-efficient heal in the game, meaning you can heal yourself without worrying about having enough mana to continue the fight.
Of course, when it comes to World of Warcraft Paladin PvP you cannot be afraid to bring on the melee damage.
Retribution Paladins have an amazing ability to bring the pain to their opponents, and with the proper gear they can hit fast and hard.
Make use of your Crusader Strike and your Divine Storm to knock your opponents out quickly.
If you can, keep your back to the wall, as that will allow you to parry and block oncoming attacks.
PvP Paladin builds
While recent patches have allowed the Protection Paladin to become more useful in WoW PvP, the two most popular PvP Paladin builds continue to be Holy and Retribution.
- If you enjoy healing, then Holy will be the best option for you. Especially in Warsong Gulch, you will be one of the most effective healing options. Your gear is very important, and you will want to max out your spell damage. Spiritual Focus and Concentration Aura will help you to cast heals under pressure, while Cleanse can be very useful in the PvP arena.
- Retribution Paladins will need a totally different set of gear to become useful as a PvP Paladin. You need to make sure you have enough Attack Power, Agility, and Critical Strike to be able to hit your opponents fast and hard. Don’t forget about your Seals during the fight, and take advantage of being able to stun the opponent to get in a quick self-heal in when needed.
I will be looking at pvp paladin builds, paladin talents, and Paladin pvp tips, in fact I’m really looking forward to letting you in on the secrets I’ve discovered to making the most of my WoW PvP Paladin.
Paladins can be one of the most successful PvP classes, or they can flop miserably if you do not know how to play your character appropriately.
Since you can wear plate, the strongest armor of the game, and have the ability to heal and “bubble” yourself, you can be absolutely impossible to destroy on the battlefield if you know how to play your character.
Because of this, a Paladin PvP guide can be a useful tool to making sure that your character is ready to hit the battlegrounds.
Learn what the best Paladin PvP builds are, essential Paladin PvP tips, and more information that you need to know to be able to rule over your battle group.
I thought long and hard about speccing out my Paladin, what gear to go for, the best race to start out with.
I wanted my paladin to be the biggest, baddest around, my best character yet.
And it was finally worth it!
