Quote from World of Warcraft Classic User Manual
The paladin is a virtuous defender of the weak and a tireless enemy of the undead. Mixing elements of the warrior and the priest, the paladin is a tough melee fighter with great health, excellent protection, and very strong buffs. It also has a useful mix of healing and defensive spells.


Paladin Class Best Race

The Paladin Class Best Race is limited and exclusive to the Alliance Faction, what this means is your only choices are Humans and Dwarves. If you plan to play a Healer Holy Spec then you will likely find Human Race for useful for PVE content. If you a PVP/Battlegrounds Player then Dwarves are the way to go, since they perform really well in PVP, but can also be used in PVE content just fine.

  • Best  –  Humans,  Dwarves
  • Average  –
  • Weak  –
  • Not Available –  Night Elf,  Orc,  Tauren,  Troll,  Undead,  Gnome


WoW Classic Paladin Best Weapon To Use

  • Common Weapon Skills – One-Handed Maces, Two-Handed Maces, Unarmed
  • Advanced Weapon Skills – Polearms, One-Handed Swords, Two-Handed Swords, One-Handed Axes, Two-Handed Axes
  • Armor Type You Can Use – Cloth, Leather, Mail, Shield, Plate (Level 40)


Paladin Best Profession To Use

The best profession for paladin class will depend on what your preference, but in any case, you will most likely end up with Mining to gather whatever materials you will require. Engineering is good for PVP, while Blacksmithing can craft gear for your class, it can also be difficult to level up in classic WoW.

  • Best  –  Engineering +  Mining OR  Blacksmithing +  Mining




World of Warcraft Classic Paladin Class Talent Spec


Paladin Spec Roles

List of Roles you can fill as the Paladin Class, this class happens to be one of the few that can be used in each role DPS, Tank and Healer. We think out fo the 3 Healer is probably the best choice, and Retribution can be strong if you have the right gear.

  • DPS Paladin DPS Spec paladin_retribution Retribution
  • Healing Paladin Healer Spec paladin_holy Holy
  • Tank Paladin Tank Spec paladin_protection Protection

Best Paladin Class Spec

Out of the 3 we consider Holy to be the Best Paladin Class Spec, this is mostly due to the two specs big weaknesses. Retribution players will have a hard time getting into raids due to their lack of damage, which is partly because of how Gear Dependent they are. While Protection Spec you would think is good, but since it struggles to Tank Mobs like the superior Warrior Tanks.

  • Best  –  paladin_holy Holy
  • Average  – paladin_retribution Retribution, paladin_protection Protection
  • Weak  –
