Paladin abilities are nearly all either mana-based or require holy power. They are split into three specializations.
- Holy (healing)
- Includes all healing spells, supportive seals, and spells.
- Protection (tanking)
- Includes spells that protect yourself and others.
- Retribution (DPS)
- Includes most damage-related skills.
- Note: Players technically start in Retribution spec; if a player chooses another specialization at level 10, Protection paladins lose Crusader Strike.
