Hey guys.

Im looking for some serious help here. I used to play a MM hunter and gave up the game for over a year. Decided to get back into it and chose to roll a Pally.

Levelled up to 65 as ret before I decided i wanted to respec Prot.

I've never had anything to do with Pally's or tanking before but i was looking to try something different.

Need major help with what gear i should be going for and how to spec my character.

More or less, im walking into tanking without a clue as to whats involved.

Willing to try anything and do anything to succeed.

Be harsh if need be but also helpful.


I've linked my toon from Armory but remember i know my gear isnt all that.

For gear.

Just search around on the forums and you will find answers to all these questions.

Since you are still leveling and picking up mostly quest rewards and random drops along the way, a good guide to look at might be Honor's Pally Leveling Guide (http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f200/37157-leveling-paladin-world-warcraft.html) if you want to get a head start on some of the more advanced stuff i suggest perusing the theory forums, I won't say nothing you read will be wasted, but as a tank knowing as much as you can,even about other classes, is always helpful.
