i am a lvl 50 human retribution paladin and i would like to check up with other pallies out there to see whether my stats and such are horribly messed up or not,
this is my character-http://www.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Drak%27Tharon&n=Elissor
and i have nearly all items 10 or more lvls below me, I am wondering if I should be at 3k health yet and whether my crusader strike should be hitting 270-300 considering my normal attacks on mobs 51-53 does around 250 damage. Am I hitting too low and what can I replace my gear with too help me get better without having to spend too much time farming because I want to lvl as well.
Any help would be appreciated.
(PS. I only have arpund 30g so I can't spend too much)

Well as you say your gear is somewhat outdated, but at least you have gone for all the right stats (apart from the neck piece). Just do some quests around your level which wil give you some new gear, you only have to do 8 more levels in the gear, so don't go spending any cash to do it.
You do however need to spend your next two points in Improved Judgements, its right back at the start of the tree, but its probably one of THE best talents in the tree, you will see a large jump in dps by reducing the CD, and you'll get more mana returned by JotW (judgements of the wise)
If i were you i'd try to get a run into Maradon, or even better would be BRD, some nice upgrades for you in there, aswell as tonnes of exp (doubly so if you pick up the quest chains - though some are rather convuluted).
Examples of BRD (http://www.wowhead.com/?zone=1584
)loot useful to you:
(Zone drop) - http://www.wowhead.com/?item=11626
Leather (but try not to roll agaisnt rogues/druids on this as they may hate you for it):http://www.wowhead.com/?item=22241
thats just from a quick browse of the first page (there are 3 pages) and not counting the random green drops you may pick up aswell as the (enchanted with X items like: http://www.wowhead.com/?item=11945
which may/may not be useful to you depending on which stats it comes with) or the quest rewards like: http://www.wowhead.com/?item=12000
(Alliance or Horde) or http://www.wowhead.com/?quest=4063
. (note the awesomeness of rise against the machine here ;))
P.S. on a side note you mentioned you (only) have 30g. If you want to be mr. money bags, ditch both enchanting and engineering in favour of Skinning and herbalism/Mining as the second. Having 2x gathering proffessions will help tremendously. You'll have to go back and level them up in low level zones for a while, but if you follow the proffesion guides (on wowhead) you should be able to do each in a few hours up to a decent level...
hope thats of some help!
