    Holy = Caretaker/Hall Monitor. A bit on the boring side unless you really enjoy the supervisory role.

    Prot = Center of Attention. You're at the top of everyone's (threat) list. If you aren't there, everyone else just stands there with a thumb in their behind.

    Ret = Outcast Kid/Rebel. The guy that does what he wants to regardless of how many other people are doing it or the stigma attached to doing it.


    Almost everyone levels their pally as ret but many will shy away from it when they reach max level. They abandon ret because it's an overpopulated spec, they wanted to be holy or prot to begin with, or they can't handle the constant ridicule of being ret.

    EDIT: I am clearly a Ret advocate. Prot is #2. Holy takes last place mostly because I am just that bad at it.

    Well, it's all a matter of opinion but I think prot is the spec that is the "most fun". I no longer play a Paladin as my main, but tanking can be quite fun.

    reckoning/ret hybrid swing that mace around with reckoning and CoCmd procs or a spell dmg holy pally with ele shammy mail on for hit rating and crit?

    Shockadin or Protribution, can't decide at this point though...

    With it, you can offer a bit from every role to your raid.

    Or go just holy.

    The question isn't what the funnest spec is, as every spec can be fun. The question is, what is fun to you? Tanking? Healing? DPSing?

    If you have been playing as one thing so far (DPS for example) i strongly suggest you try one of the other two (or maybe both) - i.e. tanking / healing.

    back on topic... I've been playing a paladin for 3+ years now and I think prot is by far the most fun spec to play in my opinion. It never gets old, it keeps me entertained more than any other spec, you always have something to do, and you get to control all the action. I really hate running with slow/retarded tanks when I am holy or ret, so that's probably the biggest reason why prot gets my vote.

    2 pts in Imp LoH is such a waste. Move 1 pt to Aura Mastery and that spec is perfect!!

    Protection. While I have an offspec as Retribution, I always find myself going back to protection even when I am farming or PvPing. Something about being a nearly unstoppable monster, able to take on twenty guys without even breaking a sweat, just appeals to me. Plus the feeling of being at the feet of a boss and taking all his might and surviving just feels so much better then hanging out around his back/side with a big sword nicking slowly away at him. I can't really say much about Holy, have yet to use the spec as I have a Shaman I use for healing. Maybe I should give that a shot.

    Re: Funnest paladin spec?

    Been playing pala for bout 3 years now. I play all three specs. Duel spec ret / tank, and change tank to holy from time to time depending if i get bored. In my general oppinion tanking is lots of fun just for the fact of :

    Everyone loves a tank

    Need a PuG? Boom your in

    Ret is nice when you get the gearz to pull out the big numbers. its nice to see mages and hunters below ya on the dps charts, usually causes QQ

    And healing is... well... healing... same with most classes really. I find healing really damn dull...


    to round up...

    If duel spec go ret/tank
    if single go tank (y)
    Oh noes! Plz don't perma ban me :-/ *flips the bird* OH NOES I WON'T BE ABLE TO POST!PLXDON'T!!one loldie
