Why an Undead Paladin Makes Sense
Even before class changes were announced, I had questioned why the undead (Forsaken) can’t be paladins.Â Many of the bravest paladins fell to the Lich King and thus could be reborn as a Forsaken.Â Though the light may have left these people for a short time, I don’t think it would be too big of a leap to suggest that they could find the light again.
With regards to the Light leaving the Forsaken, this can be refuted with the following points.
– Where do Holy and Discipline Forsaken priests get their skills from?Â That’s right… the light.Â It’s not like all Forsaken priests are shadow priests.
– A’dal has the power to grant protection from the light and the source of power that paladins use (see Lady Liadrin and the Blood Knights)
– Sir Zeliek, a member of The Four Horseman, was a paladin in life and still commands the power of the light in his undeath.Â From WoWWiki, “According to Commander Eligor Dawnbringer‘s lecture in Wintergarde Keep, Zeliek is, “so strong in his faith, that even in undeath, the power of the light still heeds his call, smiting his foes in battle.”Â Now explain to me why there aren’t some Forsaken paladins out there for me Blizzard.
I’m really hoping someone from Blizzard reads this can can explain to me why Forsaken paladins weren’t added to the new Cataclysm race/class combos.
