The upcoming Dragonflight expansion for World of Warcraft is about to see some major changes to the paladin class as the talent trees return and each class is redesigned from the ground up.

According to the new data, it looks like paladins will be getting some new spells that will significantly shake up the gameplay for this dynamic melee class.


Thus, Knights of the Light will receive an improved sacred shield that blocks spells, and will also be able to briefly increase their strength and will be able to use lay on hands more often. Holy damage has also been increased, which is sure to take advantage of some paladin builds in the raid.

Now the paladin should become stronger in the raid.

Finally, some spells increase Parry, and Greater Blessings now increase damage against enemies. All of these upgrades greatly increase the class’s mobility and allow it to deal more damage, though it’s unlikely to revitalize the semi-dead PvP aspects.

It is possible that we will see new builds in the Dragonflight beta before the official launch. As for the talents themselves, it looks like improved shields have been introduced specifically for tank paladins to boost them in PvE.

However, it is worth noting that some spells have been removed from PvE builds, but they remain in the PvP format as talents. It is still difficult to say what will eventually be left on the release, and what the developers will get rid of, but definitely a serious shake-up awaits all classes.
