So you want to take a beating, do you? Well, you’ve come to the right place. This guide will walk you through the basics of playing a protection based Paladin, or Tankadin as they are commonly called.

There are many critical abilities in the protection talent tree though. In fact there are more good talents than most players can reasonably take. Just a few of the key ones are: Anticipation for a 5% boost to dodge, Toughness for 10% extra armour, Sacred Duty and Combat Expertise for 8% and 6% additional stamina from each respectively, One-handed weapon specialization for a 10% boost to all damage while holding a one-handed weapon, and many more.

Join Byron "Messiah" Mudry as he teaches you the basics of playing a Protection Paladin.
