Other Paladin skills could be adapted as talents. A few examples:

Pre-level 10 talents.

Redemption: Every time a nearby enemy minion dies, the Paladin heals 1.5% of his maximum Health and 3 Mana. Doubled when a nearby enemy Hero dies.

Holy Fire: Deal 13 damage per second to nearby enemies. The Paladin can put Holy Fire in a nearby ally, having the same effect. Cooldown: 20 seconds.

Post-level 10 talents.

Aura of Thorns: For 5 seconds, enemy Heroes suffer 25% of the damage they deal to you or any nearby allied Hero, in a short range around them. Cooldown: 60 seconds.

Holy Shield: After hitting an enemy Hero with Smite, the Paladin gains 20 armor for 2 seconds.

DISCLAIMER: So, what's my point here? I liked the discussion about how the game could use more supports. Supports are not only "oddities", but also characters that can do a bit of what other classes do, but not being specialized in anything in particular. See Medivh, or Zarya. As my favourite Diablo 2 class, I think that the paladin is a great choice for an "a little bit of everything" hero: sturdy, but not as durable or with as much CC as a tank or with the amount of self-sustain of a bruiser. Can dish some damage if needed, but not as much as an assassin. Have some healing capabilities but not nearly as much as a proper healer. I think that concept fits what the paladin was in Diablo 2 and I wanted to try and translate some of his iconic skills to HotS.
