You'll need some plate... and a shield... and your bubble-bonnet...
So you want to take a beating, do you? Well, youÂve 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.
In the second section of the guide we look at the stats on gear you
need, gear lists to prep for heroics, enchants, tips and more.
Prepare for many comments about how Paladins can't tank, invites to be
the healer instead of the tank, etc. Get used to it, be patient and
prove them wrong.
