    Trying the lite version: Can paladins be DPS or is it a tank ONLY soul?

    *title* pretty much.

    I've always enjoyed paladin-y type characters. And there seem to be some offensive talents in the soul tree for them but I am unsure if they are meant for DPS or if it's just to help with threat or something.

    Paladin is a tanking soul. But there're hybrids you can use in PvP for example. In PvE group content, Paladin should be used for tanking.

    ^ great tanking build

    It is used in some pvp builds for survivability as you are getting face raped by casters and ranged.

    Paladin DPS talents are meant to help with threat. As others have said, Paladin is a tank soul.

    However, you may combine Paladin with DPS souls such as Tempest, Champion, Paragon or Riftblade in any combination of 3 souls. Natch, can have Paladin + Tank + Tank souls or Pally + DPS + DPS souls. Pally + support + tank souls or Pally + DPS + Tank souls.

    It's pretty flexible.

    If you like WoW Pally, you may actually prefer Cleric over Warrior. Check out the Justicar soul.

    Oh well, will see what I end up with either way. It's a shame I'll be stuck with the trial once the free days expire, can't pay for two subs at once (the other being WoW). Whilst I generally dislike other games being pay2play at least Rift offers a nice alternative to WoW veterans or new players, I just remember the days when every MMO tried to be sub based. Lord the number of 30-day trials me and my friends used up then tossed aside...
