I've decided to level my paladin for cata for my first 85 as it gives flexibility (tanking, healing, dps).
I haven't been in the loop for cata leveling but was considering what spec to level as. I understand the debate on level the spec you find most enjoyable, but i find them all enjoyable, and i find going fast enjoyable.
So which spec would generate the speediest leveling; does anyone have beta experience with paladin leveling?

I've been pondering the same thing. I think I've decided to level as prot with ret gear and a sword and board. Prot would give a bit more survivability, and from my understanding outside of Hyjal and Vashj'ir, mobs hit pretty hard. Prot still does a decent amount of damage as well, and I never seem to go oom.

Exorcism spam isn't too shabby.
1. Judgement once every minute
2. Spam exorcism
3. Use the holy power when hit talent to heal yourself for free
4. Go to next mob
5. Go to (2.) or (1.) if judgement buff drops

Well I've yet to reach level 80 on this character but so far... I've leveled from 1-68 with Protection as my main and holy for my offspec and only recently have I changed my holy healing to a shockadin spec. It's loads of fun. But I very much doubt this is the way Blizzard intends to have the class play so I'm enjoying it while I can.
At 78 however, I'll probably head back to Protection and holy healing offspec. From what I've read on WoW Insider though, shockadins are less viable at 81-85 level as Exorcism scales horribly. Well It'll be interesting to see what happens come next week. Please weigh in on Shockadin, Prot, Ret leveling :)
(For the record I've never touched Retribution and plan to keep it that way.)
