WoW Classic PVP Paladin Build


Welcome to our World of Warcraft Classic PVP Paladin Builds List. Below we list the Best Specs for the Paladin Class to use in Battlegrounds for Patch 1.12, and we also provide you with Builds for each spec Holy, Protection and Retribution.


Best PVP Paladin Race 

We consider the Dwarves Race the best for PVP mostly due to the Stone Form and Frost Resistance, these two Racial Traits are valuable in Battlegrounds whereas Humans are more effective in a PVE setting.

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

Best PVP Paladin Spec

These are the worst and Best PVP Paladin Specs to use in Battlegrounds. Holy stand above the other Paladin Specs mostly due to great heals and the ability to wear Plate Armor. Protection is viable as a flag runner and Retribution can also be strong but require a large gear investment.

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

World of Warcraft Classic Best PVP Paladin Build


paladin_holy PVP Holy Paladin

As we mentioned earlier this is by far the best out of the 3 Specs, since it has strong Healing spells and Auras that your entire team can benefit from. Also thanks to the fact that this is the only healer that can wear plate armor, it makes them even more hard to focus and kill.

  • Strengths – [Healing Spells] – [Auras] – [Can Wear Plate Armor]
  • paladin_holy Paladin Holy Builds


paladin_protection PVP Protection Paladin

Like with most Tank specs in WoW Classic they are more suited for PVE, however, you can use them in PVP. You can use the Protection Spec for Running the Flag in battlegrounds from the enemy base since you will tank and hard to kill and in this case can even self heal.


paladin_retribution PVP Retribution Paladin

Ret Pally can be strong but will require a heavy gear investment, this why most players opt to play one of the many other classes when it comes to Single and even AOE damage.
