At anytime a Paladin can only have one active Aura, multiple Paladins in a group mean multiple Auras. The Paladins are designed specifically for protection. They are allotted the ability to protect and heal not only themselves but anyone else they choose too.

Being of holy nature, Paladins have a powerful effect on undead creatures. Their holy spells are designed specifically to destroy the legions of undead armies. Along with healing, Paladins are able to do massive damage and be successful tanks; thanks in part to the ability to wear plated armor. Along with the healing and resurrection powers they possess, you could argue that Paladins are the strongest overall characters in World of Warcraft.

The way you use all of these powerful spells is through your mana consumption. When you find yourself in high level raids, you will be extremely dependent on your fellow raid members to help regenerate your mana, because you will use it at such a rapid rate. Many times when people are first leveling a Paladin, they will run into mana issues. This is the most frustrating part of being a Paladin.

With the ability to choose tank, DPS or healing, Paladins have a talent tree that is designed specifically for each of those specs. To make it easy here are the talents that are associated with each of the three specs: Holy is for healing, Protection is for tanking and Retribution is for damage. As this makes it very easy to choose your talent points, it also makes it somewhat boring. One of the drawbacks to being a Paladin is the limited freedom you have when putting together your talent builds. That is the price you pay for the versatility of a Paladin.

A lot of players will tell you when you level a Paladin you must use Retribution to help you level, but in fact the Protection talent tree makes leveling much easier. Retribution is all about damage, but consumes way to much mana to make it an effective leveling tool. Defense and mana are the basis for Protection, and will make leveling fun and easy. Now you will be able to burn through enemies quicker and take full advantage of your strengths.
