1 To me it doesn't really matter, but I chose Human
2 It would depend on your primary role and your mode of play. Shields obiviously give you a better armor rating. But even then it doesn't really matter since a Paladin is not a class that does really great DPS. ( They do however do very good damge with holy spells ) But it does depend on if you can find weapons at the AH at your level that you can use.
3 Various builds. It really depends on your level. The higher level you are the more you will be able to judge what works best for you.
Divine Intellect ( Paladins are casters of sorts and burns the mana like nothing else) And you could toss in some Seal of Righteousness there too
Improved Devotion Aura, Redoubt, Precision and Tougness
Build it as you so desire.
I have a 66 holy paladin, so I might be able to help you here.
1. Doesn't matter much. The races have few racial abilites that make any real difference to the class itself.
2. I recommend for leveling to use a one hander and shield. This will afford you increased armour, and the ability to block melee attacks (i.e. take no damage from an attack).
3. I would choose the Retribution tree for leveling from 1-45, 46-60 try Protection. Now this is where the decision is made: Do you want to PvP or PvE or both? I find the Holy tree to be the best all-around for the simple reason of increased healing (you can ALWAYS find a group as a holy pally), holy damage is increased, and the remaining talent points can go into Protection or Retribution. Personaly I choose Holy/ Protection, which makes me extremely hard to kill.
Good luck and have fun with whatever you choose!
