Paladin abilities are abilities that paladins use. Most abilities are shared between all specializations, while some are only specific to one (or two) specializations.


All paladins automatically learn the following spells at the specified level, regardless of specialization.


The three paladin specializations are Holy (healing), Protection (tanking) and Retribution (melee DPS).

For a summary of the character and strengths of each spec, see Paladin specializations.


Talents become available at level 15, with a new tier unlocked every 15 levels. Only one talent can be chosen from each tier.

Glyphs are ability enhancements created by scribes; characters can equip up to six glyphs at one time. Three Major Glyphs that significantly enhance the character's major abilities and three Minor Glyphs that add cosmetic effects or minor enhancements. Most glyphs enhance existing abilities, but a few grant entirely new ones.

Once learned, glyphs are a permanent addition to a character's arsenal. They can be swapped out any time outside of combat using  [Vanishing Powder] for characters level 25-80,  [Dust of Disappearance] for characters level 81-85 or  [Tome of the Clear Mind] for those at 86 or above, or by visiting a class trainer. Glyph slots become available at levels 25, 50 and 75. All glyphs can be used from level 25.
