Plate Specialization (paladin)
Plate Specialization is a passive ability gained by paladins at level 50.
This passive grants a bonus to the paladin's primary attribute, determined by the paladin's specialization: Holy paladins get a +5% bonus to intellect if they wear plate in all slots, while Protection paladins gain a +5% bonus to stamina, and Retribution paladins gain a +5% bonus to strength.
Plate Specialization is an armor specialization, added to encourage paladins to use plate gear at end-game rather than mail, leather or cloth.
