The Paladin is a class of Warrior that is fully devoted to kindness and ridding the Universe of Evil. They are very religious, and have an extremely strict honor code, as well as a soft spot for children and animals. In combat, a Paladin with a cause is almost impossible to defeat.
Paladins fear nothing, for Evil fears them.

A Paladin is a character class created for OD&D the Original Dungeons & Dragons. All paladins must be Lawful (Lawful Good). All other alignments are only applied to paladins in inferior versions of D&D(Dungeons & Dragons) and other cheap inferior ripoffs of D&D(Dungeons & Dragons). Properly played Paladins are never Lawful Stupid - that only results from having a bad DM and bad players.

Playing a Paladin correctly in the real spirit of the game is something to which all roleplayers should aspire.
When you think of a Paladin, think of sweet combination of Batman and Superman in regard to character.

I'm a little paladin short and stout
Here is my hammer here is my mount
When trouble comes I scream and shout
Then I bubble and hearthstone out.

One of nine playable classes in the game World of Warcraft. Currently, Paladins are specific to the Alliance, and can only be either Dwarves or Humans. In short time, however, Paladins will also be playable by the Horde, as Blood Elves.

Paladins are often thought of as easy-mode players because of the Paladin class ability to wear the heaviest class of armor, wield a large variety of weapons, and have the ability to heal themselves in combat. They are sometimes likened to adolescent/immature players, or mentally handicapped. The underlying irony of those insults is that they are made by other players of the same game, and they are no more intelligent or mature than any other player of said game.

Truth be told, Paladins are no more viable than any other class in World of Warcraft. Every class has the choice to specialize in three different aspects of their abilities, and the Paladins are no exception. They can choose to be exceptional healers, psudo-tanks, or powerful damage dealers. The misconception is that they can perform all three roles simultaneously, which is simply not true.

The Paladin class can be a very entertaining class to play at all stages of its development, be it during the levelling process, PvP, or PvE content. They posess a rich variety of spells and abilities that not only make them exceptionally survivable, but a true blessing to any group.
"Unlike you, I choose to play my Paladin the way it was meant to play, as a versatile support class capable of multiple roles."

A Class of Characters found in World of Warcraft which is only available to Alliance characters. The are in many ways greater than other classes found in World of Warcraft with abilities to wear the highest class of armors, fight with the strongest melee weapons, and use spells that allow temporary invulnerability and healing. This class of characters is hated by many others due to the inability to cope with the fact that he or she spent so much time creating a character who is unable to use or beat the paladin class. Similiar hatred is seen towards the Horde class characters of Shamans. It has been found in many studies that people who believe the paladin class is an unfair class often have a 32.4 pound stone with rough edges lodged in their rectum and decending colon.
Pussy Ass Rogue: "OMG, What a gay Paladin. I can't gank him like the others. I guess I'll go bitch about this class because I'm in denial since I spent so much time on my pathetic rogue, I have lost all my dignity in real life. I lost my job, my girlfriend, my house, my ability to erect my penis or vice versa. I can't even take a shit like I used to. Yeah, I'll do that. Paladins are for noobs. That makes me feel better. Shamans suck to.
