You think you want it, but you don't.
No new Paladin races for the Horde, no new Shaman races for the Alliance (so far as of Feb 2018). Sounds pretty even handed. Now they just need to look at the distribution of new Druid races, which seems a bit lop-sided.
The Blood Elf and Tauren Paladins of the Horde might be able to lend the Zandalari Paladins a holy hand when we join forces
just bs to not give horde paladin. the horde really don't care about shaman being on horde, as far as I care every race could have shaman option. a lot of the new races don't interest me because they can't be very many classes and they don't really offer me much in the way of flexibility. nerfing lore classes just to cater to alliance 12 year olds who think they are the "good guys" is just lame. there are no good guys this is just a murder hobo simulator where you travel the worlds killing people for loot and xp.
People don't seem to realize Blizzard isn't giving Dark Iron shaman or Zandalari paladins for a reason. They're pushing this faction conflict so much, down to what classes they give the factions on the new races. Horde get 2 new shaman races(Highmountain and Zandalari), Alliance get 2 new paladin races(Lightforged and Dark Iron.)
Please please please! I've been wanting troll pallies since vanilla! These guys were be perfect! And Loa based Light? HELL YES!
I have said it once i will say it again, we need pandas to be able to roll paladins :P i would pay just to make my paladin female panda! the cm gear from mop looks great on them :D
Here's a thought, wait to see the full story and what will come out instead of baby raging like spoiled and entitled brats cause mommy didn't buy the exact toy you wanted. You are provided one small nugget of hope for zandalari paladins then start whining without knowing the full story. Guess what? Belves also lost their connection to their light powers temporarily after Kael'thas captured Muru and took him to the Isle of Quel'danas. This is a story that we are only getting bits and pieces of. You don't know how this will play out. Also saying they could get their light powers from any Loa. Sorry that's just a whiny excuse borne out of anger of not getting what you want. The power of wielding the light seems to be exclusive to Rezan thus far as far as we know. Bottom line we don't know enough info to make a judgment either way.If they do make Zandalari paladins people will justify their whiny behavior, saying it paid off when Blizz was always probably planning to make them anyway. Which wouldn't surprise me based on thus little nugget from alpha
well at least it is in the god damn game instead of some half assed excuse to be lost in a blue post or a !@#$ty footnote in a book that basically read "oh yeah the loa who empowered the pallies of the zanadalrari we killed him *raises middle finger at horde to display lion tattoo*"But I am pissed because they know people want them and horde have been begging for better options for the paladins since belves keep getting turned into joke and tauren are tough to navigate, but nope ^&*! the lore we'll make an easy out and kill the gods that will teach the horde we don't care what they want.they also throwing money into a fire with this blizz would make so much $$$$ from race change alone with the combo and likely bring back a slew of players in a similar way that demon hunters did.
Um, maybe with Rezan no longer a source of power, they start to tap into the Light itself? How does anyone not see this? It’s literally the same thing that happened with Mu’ru/Sunwell/Blood Elves.
What a waste, what a joke, what a troll. They literally wrote them out of the story just to take a big crap in our mouths. This is one vindictive bunch of devs. The more they act like this the more I shy away from their game. This is BAD LORE and BAD PR. I hope they get swamped with Zandalari Paladin threads endlessly now.
Give Zandalari paladins to us already! Another excuse to remain Alliance then... Such a damn shame.
Is all this BEFORE or AFTER they have been unlocked to join the horde?Is it maybe possible that they reconnect to the light after joining the horde via the blood elves and taurens assistance? I don't know what "Prelates" require for their faith to be lifted.
