I made the decision just over a month ago to level my stale level 40 Paladin alt to 80. This is my first alt ever to reach max level, as I dislike the leveling process.
On top of that, in terms of real life:
- work’s been quite hectic
- we were on a vacation in Maui to celebrate our anniversary
The reason for leveling a Paladin to 80 is simple: I want to play a durable melee in PVP. Initially I thought Retribution might be fun to play, but I’ve been doing some research and watching videos, and I am very intrigued by the “Protribution” spec, which is a Protection / Retribution hybrid. The spec has good CC, good burst, and is very durable. It will suck for healing but you can’t have everything.
So I am splitting my time between gearing up my Paladin (3.5k GearScore, only 4 pieces of epic PVP gear at the moment) and still BG’ing with my Moonkin. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to capture any Moonkin PVP footage that I fight illustrative and compelling. But I’m trying :)
Once I get my Paladin decently geared (i200+ epics in all slots), I’ll try to capture Paladin PVP footage as well.
