Talent Selection While LVL'ing???

Postby Vhing » Thu Apr 16, 2009 2:25 pm

I am leveling a brand new pally on a new server. It's been a long time since I leveled my main-maintankadin, AND things have changed drastically since then, anyway.

I want to MT when I get leveled, but from everything I'm seeing (on this site and others) that the best way to lvl a pally is Ret, and then switch to Prot (after 60 or 70 or whatever personal choice is.)

What I have been searching for is a guide, or at least a good suggestion, on how to spend talent points ALONG THE WAY.

If someone knows where I can find this type of advice, I would appreciate being pointed toward it.

5/5 Benediction
2/2 Imp BoM
2/2 Imp Judgement
1/3 HotC
1/1 Soc
2/2 PoJ
3/3 HotC
3/3 Crusade
2/5 Conviction
1/1 Sanctified Retribution
5/5 Conviction
3/3 Sanctity of Battle
3/3 2hWS
3/3 JotW
1/1 Repentance
2/2 Art of War
3/3 Fanaticism
1/3 Vengeance
1/1 Crusader Strike
3/3 Swift Retribution
3/3 Sheath of Light
3/3 Vengeance
1/3 Righteous Vengeance
1/1 DS
3/3 Righteous Vengeance

This build may contain errors, as I'm no expert and fucked up by missing out Sanctity of Battle. I've subbed it back in, but I may have made an error somewhere. It's therefore subject to correction by a real expert.

Panzerdin's plan looks good, though I'd make one tiny change-

2/2 Imp Judgement - get this asap (before 2/2 BoM) as judgement is about all you have going for you at low levels

Thanks for the help guys...my new pally is lvl 20 so in regard to getting 2/2 Imp Judge first...I already have them both, but thanks anyway.

I got mobbed last night and switched to my Prot gear real quick (I have Outfitter) and took down 2X21's 2X20's and 1X19 all at the same time...and lived. I was kind of surprised (NO pots...a couple quick heals though).

How sad is it when you brag about your lvl 20 toon.

This is my first Horde Pally. I will now be looking for an AA meeting to attend (Alliance Anonymous)

Skip benediction and take deflection for levelling. You can spec out of it later on when benediction will actually have some use. Here's my list. Also I wouldn't bother with imp might until way later in the game. Seal of Command is your best seal early on so get it. Here's my order:

Deflection 5/5
Imp Judgement 2/2
HotC 3/3
POJ 2/2
SoC 1/1
Conviction 5/5
Sanctity of battle 3/3
Sanctified Ret 1/1
Vengeance 3/3
Crusade 2/3
Repentance 1/1
Judgements of the wise 3/3
Go back and fill with 3rd point in Crusade
Fanatacism 3/3
Sanct. Wrath 2/2
Crusader Strike 1/1

...I'm sure you can figure the rest out by the time you get that high.
