Any paladins feel naked without a shield?

Paladin
Because I sure do.

That's why my specs are prot or holy. 99.5% of the time prot though. I've had a shield of some type perma equipped in my offhand since I was level 12 in 2005, and I can't imagine going without one.

Do any other paladins feel this way?
Given the choice between a shield and pants, definitely take the shield.

we little people would prefer your wear pants
Man, we are the exact opposite. When I see a shield equipped I think "Oh, a boring character." That's not a slam on anyone here! But for me, smacking monsters around with a greatsword or maul or polearm is where the fun is.
Throwing my shield at people's faces Captain America style is where it's at.
I love the sword and shield holy knight image. Just wish I didn't have to wear a dress.
i love my sword and shield. not the same when i tank on my dk.
I do. Always did love the shield bearers. I have pretty much all the shield wearing classes. I thought I was just...odd.
Sword 'n' board is how I roll.
I love me shield, and I love me dress too!

You're a blood elf, it's not as big of a deal for you guys to wear one.

As a rough and tough human paladin tank, I decided to opt out of the dress, wearing a slightly inferior set of leggings (but only slightly).
