I would start here.


I'll leave the talent point stuff to someone better qualified to answer that.

This is the base talent spec for Prot Pallys:

you need the points in Ret so you can maintain a 96969 which you can find details of here:

the rest of the points you can spend how you like. They are usually spent to get further down the Ret tree for some more DPS.


Glyph of Devine Plea is a must
Glyph of SoV is amazingly well itemized

For your third major chose from:
Glyph of Judgment
Glyph of Hand of Salvation (not recommend unless you are really confident with your threat)
Glyph of Righteous Defense (much better in 3.2 and recommend while starting out)

For minor Glyphs you basically have to take Glyph of Sense Undead, and then just fill the other two slots with anything.
