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."

An incredible hero who, though he has a code of honor is not celibate.

In fact he is generally ridiculously good at pleasing woman and knows how to take care of them. That's why ladies dig Paladins - they can rescue them from danger and provide incredible sex.
Paladins rescue fair maidens then get sweet sweet rewards.

In WOW)a class that can be the most versitile class in the game if people learned to diversify abilities.
some believe it to be overpowered,because they can in situatins be indistructable,some believe underpowered,because if you play conservativly with a paladin you become one dimensional,and despite your unbelievable power can be destroyed.

In real life or any other game,a holy warrior protector of faith named after athene the goddess of protection
(the root word pal comes from "pallas athene" a name that athene often went under.
When a good WOW Paladin joins a group they will hear "wow I didnt know Paladins could do that" almost every single time.
When a lame Paladin plays they can only heal,use 1 aura per fight(sometimes 1 aura per lifetime)use 1 seal type,and either poorly mismanage mana,or never use any at all.

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.
