    So I came back and on a whim purchased a heroic paladin. Boy things have changed and I have no idea what I'm doing or what spells to use. Started into the quest line and almost died to the mercenaries because I have no idea spells do.

    Can someone link a guide to paladin-ing or give me some advice on how to begin?

    Heroic toons IMO are quite problematic if you are not familiar with a classes abilities. I used to play paladin as my main through pop and early god. I would not have a clue what to do with a heroic one. My advice would be to play a baby paladin and reaffirm your base knowledge of the class and try and translate that to the heroic one. Check you aa class abilities for any activated aa through the activated filter search take note of what they do and hot key them. Crushes and stuns look like decent aggro. Withstand could be multi bound to your aggro setup as I guess you want as many uses of that as possible. Trial spells are nice hate over time with an ac buff. You also get a defensive self heal proc buff. It has been so long since I played a paladin to offer sound advice as level 85 is normally a massive leap in abilities particularly aa. I have a non heroic Sk I am now playing as main at 85 and I feel I have gained a lot from playing it since level 1. Keep your heroic pally and play a non heroic one till near the heroic level then switch and you will feel a lot more in control of what you are doing. Unless you get some familiarity with a class a heroic toon can be very confusing.
