Welcome to the Protection Paladin Tank guide for World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King 3.3.5a. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Protection Paladin in a raid. The guide includes Talents, Glyphs, Gems, Enchantments, BiS Gear, Add-ons, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

Optimal talent tree for raids. You have two spare points to spend. I’d suggest Pursuit of Justice, Judgements of the Just or Vindication

Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.


Regal Dreadstone or Shifting Dreadstone


Enduring Eye of Zul


Solid Majestic Zircon

To put it simply, there is one main rotation for a Protection Paladin: the 969 rotation. It uses 5 skills: two with 6 sec cooldown and tree with 9 sec cooldown. Use a 9 sec skill, then a 6 sec skill, then a 9 sec skill, then another 6sec skill and so on.

There is no real BiS list for tanks as a good tank will always want to adjust his armor depending on the encounter. Rings, Trinkets, and Amulets are often changed depending on the needed stats: HP Pool, Armor or Resists.
