#PaladinWeek Famous Paladins

Yes I know I know it is #PriestWeek now, but I really wanted to show you some awesome Paladins that have crossed my path! ūüôā So here we go!


Uther the Lightbringer

He was the first Paladin of the Knights of the Silver Hand who led his Order in battle against the Horde during the Third War.
During the Third War, Uther was betrayed and murdered by his beloved pupil, Prince Arthas, while defending the urn carrying the ashes of Arthas’ father,¬†King Terenas.

His tomb is located in the Western Plaguelands, east of Chillwind Camp. The marker stone in the tomb reads:

Here lies Uther the Lightbringer

First Paladin – Founder or the Order of the Silver HandUther lived and died to defend the kingdom of Lordaeron. Though he was betrayed by his most beloved student, we believe that his spirit lives on. He continues to watch over us, even as the shadows close in around our ruined land. His Light is the light of all humanity – and so long as we honor his example, it shall never fade.

I loved doing the quest in Western Plaguelands where you escort ¬†Anchorite Truuen to Uther’s Tomb. R.I.P /salute

Terenas Menethil II

He was the last true king of Lordaeron and the primary founder of the original Alliance of Lordaeron. Ruling over seven decades, including the period of the Second and Third Wars, Terenas was considered one of the most powerful human monarch in the three thousand years since the breaking of Arathor. His death at the hands of his own son ended the Menethil dynasty and deprived the Alliance of its leadership at a critical moment in history.

It says in his tomb stone:

Here lies King Terenas Menethil II – Last True King of Lordaeron.Great were his deeds – long was his reign – unthinkable was his death.¬†“May the Father lie blameless for the deeds of the son.¬† ¬†May the bloodied crown stay lost and forgotten.”

 

Tirion Fordring

He was one of the first five Knights of the Silver Hand selected by Archbishop Alonsus Faol, and was one of the heroes of the Second War. He later became Lord of Mardenholde Keep in Hearthglen before being stripped of his title and exiled for defending an orc, Eitrigg.
Following the recent death of his son Taelan Fordring, Tirion committed himself to refounding the order of the Silver Hand. He now leads the Argent Crusade. To this day he remains good friends with the orc veteran Eitrigg.

Highlord Bolvar Fordragon

He was venerated warrior of the Alliance and served as the Regent of Stormwind. He was also named the commander of the Alliance forces sent to take the battle to the Scourge in Northrend. After the treachery of Grand Apothecary Putress at the Battle of Angrathar the Wrathgate, Fordragon was believed to have been killed, either by the Forsaken Blight or the fires of the red dragonblight.
(The Wrathgate¬†cinematic if you didn’t do the quest line or just haven’t seen it.In my opinion it is one of the best cinematics in WoW)

However, he survived, his body altered by the dragon’s flame, and was taken by the Scourge into Icecrown Citadel, tortured by the Lich King in an attempt to break him to his will. He resisted Lich King’s deprevations. After the death of¬†Arthas Menethil,¬†the mortal host of the Lich King, Fordragon demanded that Tirion Fordring place the¬†Helm of Domination,¬†containing all the powers of the Scourge, on his head, so that he would forever be the jailer of the damned – imprisoning the Lich King within the Frozen Throne once more and containing the threat of the Scourge.
(Fall of the Lich King¬†cinematic for those you haven’t seen it. Also one of the best cinematics, still gives me goosebumbs!!)

“Tell them only that the Lich King is dead. And that Bolvar Fordragon died with him. Now, go! Leave this place, and never return!”

#PaladinWeek transmog

When I was planning my Paladins transmog it was really clear to me that I wanted to go with Judgement set (which is tier 2 for Paladins). But when Patch 4.3 went live with transmogrification I was bit disappointed since every Paladin I saw was using it. So I wanted to be bit different. I downloaded addon called MogIt (one of my best decision ever :D), and I started planning. I knew I wanted something with Judgement and with that theme.

I remembered that I was lucky enough to get Hyperion armor as a drop once. Then the replica pieces from tier 0 and I was kind of done, just needed to decide weapon and a shield. I have to say this is probably one of my best creations, I’m so pleased with it, and it still looks like Paladin set! ūüôā If you want to use this on Warrior or Death Knight just need to replace the shoulders with either¬†Replica Lightforge Spaulders¬†,¬†Blood-stained Pauldrons¬†or¬†Glimmering Steel Mantle. I think Glimmering Steel Mantle goes really well with this one ūüôā

Head: –
Shoulders: Judgement Spaulders
Chest: Hyperion Armor
Wrists: –
Gloves: Replica Lightforge Gauntlets
Belt: Replica Lightforge Belt
Leggings: Hyperion Legplates
Feet: Replica Lightforge Boots
MainHand: The Willbreaker
OffHand: Rrotective Barricade of the Light

#PaladinWeek

Fresh week of alt appreciation again, this time it’s #PaladinWeek. I have two Paladins, both Protection specced. I’ve only ever played my Paladin as a Protection due my dislike of Paladin healing and Retribution because it’s melee. My Paladin was actually my first melee class and Protection felt like spec for me after tanking with my Druid. Also I’ve also fancied Paladin because Bubble HS ;P

My first Paladin K√©rmavaahto (means whipped cream in Finnish :D) has come up long way with me, I started her just because I was bit bored with my alts and wanted something to level up. I leveled her through dungeons and at max level (I think it was 85 at that expansion) I leveled Jewelcrafting for her. In Pandaria I haven’t really played her that much, just doing heroics here and there and now with Timeless Isle she’s been getting gear that I discover with my other toons. She is waiting that Blizzard adds Gnome Paladins! <3 Also name change is in progress (as soon as I figure out nice name for her ;P)

My other Paladin Mantel√≠ (means almond in Finnish) I started her also as I was bored and I wanted a Horde toon to keep my Hunter company ūüėõ She is also leveled only through dungeons. Firstly she was Tauren (Tauren females are so cute <3) but after some time I got bored to see only Taurens back in tiny dungeons so I changed her to Blood Elf.
