Seams well put together and a good analysis but I have an off topic question, sorry.I love paladins, the lore, the look, hell even the abilities. But I just cant force myself to keep leveling him my BELF, dwarf, dranei (sp) or human one. I hit this stall around 30-40 area depending and just loose it. I am normally ret speced for leveling.Any tips?

i think just hitting STV, Arathi, Desolace and Thousand Needles (if you're horde) is all there is too do. just stick it out and grind those quests out, to be honest 40-58 are worse, 50-58 might be a bit better because you get crusader strike but its still quite bad

Until you get Crusader Strike, Retribution is pretty dull. Protection is an excellent leveling build, specially if you want to grind (physical) mobs. At lower levels, Reckoning is still fun, too. Here's my honest-to-goodness advice: grin and bear it. I hated leveling on my Paladin. It was one of the most excruciating experiences I'd ever had in the game. =p

I agree with Zach. I've had the most success with Ret 1-35 then Prot 35-50, then Ret to 70. Honestly once you hit Outland you can go Holy when you start getting spelldamage plate. I did it with my HFP and didn't regret the Shockadin spec for soloing. However I'm having much more smashy fun with my Ret-specced Belfadin.Anyway, ret for pure damage when all you get is damage gear from quests. Then prot for Holy Shield AOE fun times. Then Ret again at 50 as soon as you get CS. I'm no expert, but that worked for me.Ret with no Crusader Strike has to be one of the most boring specs in the game to play. Unless you like clicking a button every 8 seconds while you play Last Stand 2 in a different window.
