    Paladin Builds - For 4.0.1 and 4.0.3a


    With the 4.0.1 patch the talent system has drastically changed, the amount of talent points you have to spend has been decreased and the trees themselves have been changed. The trees no longer have as many tiers as they once did and you have to spend 31 points in a tree before you can spend points in another tree so there is no longer hybrid builds like we use to know. The glyph system has changed, you now get 3 more glyphs at level 75 and there is now primary glyphs.


    To access the other Paladin Builds see:
