This guide is pretty technical and contains a lot of formulas about game mechanics. Nevertheless it can be useful even if you are new to the class because explain some pratical tactics and routine good to know for every paladin. As the infamous slide at blizzcon stated we’re meant to be the “easy class”, this is due to our high survivablity. Thanks to this peculiarity the paladin class forgive a lot of mistakes in game, but be aware that at high level is one of the hardest class to play well, due to its versatility in a lot of roles, requiring highest flexibility in your in game behaviour. The paladin’s toolbar is probably the most crowded of abilities amongs all classes. Most of these are situational and require you to know exactly when to use them for their full effect. In synthesis there are a lot of paladins but good paladins are still very rare.
This guide will present paladin class in general and above all how game mechanics affect the class. There isn’t a chapter about talents and talents template but is explained how talents affects a lot of common game situations. I think that explaining how things happens instead of giving some cookie cutter templates will help people comprehension of the class, leading to everyone tailor a template for himself, finding new playstyles and improving the class general knowledge. In addition to the guide you will find the "Paladin for dummies" section: a collection of articles on paladin game mechanics in the most common situation. This section is actually on draft state, I will post every article as soon is avaiable. Thank you for your patience. ^_^
As you can probably notice english is not my mother language so any correction is appreciated. ^_^
If you have any updates, correction, additional info pls mail me at or post a comment. Thank you

I have a unique request. Could you do screenshots of your actionbars with an explanation of why you set them up that way and how you use them.

I'm sure many will appreciate some of your insight into game preparation.

While english isn't your mother language, I must comment that your mastery of certain complexities inherent in the language in addition to your large vocabulary indicate you know the language better than many who do call it their mother tongue.

The post seems to be very much interesting and informative. Nice blogging. By the way I too review the Leveling Guides which are more helpful to move across the various levels in the game.
