Tauren Paladins

Paladin
I feel rather sexy in the challenge mode transmog. Looks so puny on a blood elf, both male and female.
Fortunately, Tauren "Paladins" and "Priests", known as Sunwalkers, are actually just Druids that have learned to use the sun as most Druids use the moon.

In game they're best (though not perfectly) represented as Priests and Paladins, but that isn't what they are.


This is correct. It's just game mechanics that they're Paladins, lore-wise they are Druids that draw power from the sun instead of the moon.

As for the popular Undead Paladin opinion, it won't work. Using the light is excruciatingly painful for the Forsaken, they can be Holy an Disc in game because of game mechanics.
I race changed to a blood elf for the sole reason that Tauren look awful in ALL gear, except leather.

Blood elves - already pallies, and that was even a stretch.


Not really, blood elf were learning how to use the holy light before everything went to down in wc3

edit: to the person who said blood elf bend the light to there will is false. That change in 2.4 with the sunwell patch. The sunwell is now a beacon of holy energy. Sorry, if we are talking about lore let just get it right.
Nerds....
If they are going to throw Lore out the window just make it so any race can be any class. I think its about time they do that...obviously the whole lore integrity thing is a pain to maintain and keep subscribers happy

Awww. Don't I look sexy? :-(
Idk what you're talking about Nec, I love how gear looks on taurens... I hated how flimsy all my stuff looked on my BE paladin... But if u like it it's cool, I'm not hating.... I just disagree with you...
Well I have to see more Booji.

This. Tauren look fine in anything except most helms. But then again, most of them look terrible on any race. For my healing set, I have the bird-head helm from ZG. It looks awesome!

*wink wink*
I was wondering if you are able to use shaman BOA gear on a holy paladin?
Interesting branch off.

Anyways, yes! There are no heirlooms for healadins, because blizzard didn't wish to invest the extra time, so definitely grab any Shaman (or druid or priest) gear and use it instead. You'll be glad you did, because there's ALSO a distinct lack of caster mail in dungeons before level 40 (Your fellow party members will get mad at you when you need on cloth/leather caster pieces. Be sure to remind them of this fact. It *may* prevent you from being kicked.)
Holy nercomoly Batman!
There is nothing with lore being thrown out the window here. The Sunwalkers make perfect sense lore-wise. But try throwing that in with a game how many years in the making? YOu can't just make a tauren-specific class.
get out
see the necro, taste the necro!
NECRO!
