    Question Paladin Level Preparation!

    Hello Beta testers out there,

    just wanted to ask what are your Talent Tree suggestionts / Itemsuggestions for Leveling in BFA ?
    Got the idea to ask, while i saw an warlock video with kind of the same topic.

    My idea is leveling as Holy Paladin, but i think it will be better if i start as tank.

    I will pick as much of Gliders as i can carry and some pots (got 3k)

    thanks

    Vebi

    I prepare by completely emptying my bags. No need for anything during leveling, especially as prot. There's no downtime for health or mana you just keep on trucking.

    I will go as retri dealing 5 times more damage than you in holy and prot.

    Still cannot decide upon ret or prot for leveling purposes.
    Ret deals more damage and should be the go to , however with one ranged attack only and the terribad mobility + given the fact that for half the q-s u will only need to tag mobs that gonna be attacked by dozens of armed to the teeth players simultaneously i am tempted to go as prot throughing my shields and judges around and move forward although the downside to that is that most probs u will end up getting surrounded by a gazillion of mobs that other players will simply dot or w/e and u will need to finish off. In the end of the day maybe the best thing to do is find a good team of players and lvl as a party.

    5 months ago i bought around 6k because i thought i will spend them - seems like i will not do it ^^

    I actually think prot is the best option. Its like the "allrounder" and u do decent dmg too!

    As a ret on beta I would say IF you are 870 going into BFA this might be your best option, if you are 925+ currently on live you will be wasting time as prot. I demolished 110-116 in NO time without changing a single piece of gear. As for prep, its been said here, empty bags of useless stuff, I keep a stock of a few pots, a few flasks and a few food buffs. There is no need for anything else really. Also the reusable rune from Legion and the reusable flask from Broken Isles both still work so unless they drop those as usable, you can use those as well for a small boost to stats.

    those reusable flasks will probably be tiny amounts of stats after squish.

    Bear Tartare for the run speed on kills should still prove useful

    levling as ret. Bear Tartare, pots, legendary boots and Rethu's Incessant Courage for movement speed? (Cause ret lack mobility)

    I'm still waiting on my guild to tell me what I am maining, but if it's holy pally again, I will level as ret and burn through all the stacks of consumables I have left over from Legion as I go. I think prot works ok but it's less optimal for general purpose leveling. No matter what class I am assigned, I plan to use cons legion auto pilot.

    Stack up on goblin gliders if you are horde.

    Edit: oops, you already said that.

    Well no, you won't. Maybe double?

    Bear Tartare will start to fall off bit by bit as you level until it stops working entirely by 116 I think.

    If you don't have it, I suggest getting the Aggramar's Stride boots and the Rethu's Incessant Courage belt for movement speed if you wanna go fast.

    I am curious as to whether or not Prot is better at leveling. I've kept my head buried in the ground avoiding even the leveling experience but if it's anything like Legion then the shear ability to stack and burn felt really efficient for all the tank classes.

    Guess we'll see. I'm fine with milking the flail usage.

    It actually still scales pretty well after the squish. The Warlords one is roughly as powerful as well if you still have that instead. If you somehow died and had it on its 15m cd, you could swap them around for maximum free stats.

    Use any extra flasks or potions you have before they stop being any good. Speed stat from Bear Tartare falls off very quickly but Ret's slow as shit so anything is helpful.

    Spec for lowest possible downtime and convenience. Don't just use your raid talents for world quests either. This is what a lot of people do, not just leveling. It's bad for you.

    Also delete/vendor/bank every fucking thing you will not absolutely need. Delete your hearthstone if you have a toy that has the same effect. Every bagslot is important when leveling as you'll pick up heaps and heaps of shit. Honestly the most fun of a new expansion for me is the day before it goes live and clean out my bags of all my shit. It's liberating.

    I make this mistake every single expansion. I will get to 1-2 levels under max level before remembering that there is 0 point having a min/maxed sim build based around huge wings. usually around the point that I realise I havent used wings for 3 days because stuff is dying so quick. Will watch this space after pre-patch to see what people reckon solid levelling build is.
