Lich King Deemed Cold, Many Frozen


Hello? Anyone there? I'm back. No really, I am! Yes I have been away for 2 and a half months. Zombie invasions, new patches, new level cap, new areas...my paladin's legs are bloody stumps. Yes I am 80 and I must say, it's far cry from level 70. The spells are better, the quests are more interesting, and my gear has sexy spikes on it.

Ret - Well it's about time


So I've been on the PTR recently. Because of the free respecs I specced retribution, euqipped my hammer-lol, and then set out to check out the changes for myself. In short - wow. Read on for my full "review".

The wind of change: part 1


The expansion is almost upon us. And it will bring some welcome, some not so welcome and some baffling changes. The PTRs are live, with the new talents incorporated; the news spells embodied; it's going to be a pretty big adjustment, especially for the paladin community. For a class that was average at best, we suddenly have a lot to deal with. Of course first, we have to get to level 80.

Revamp [UPDATED]

I haven't posted very recently, mostly because I've been planning some site overhauls. These will probably already have started by the time you read these, even if you can't see them yet. So let the games begin!

[UPDATE] Well that was fairly quick. I'll probably still fiddle with it at times, but for now, it'll do.

Race Your Paladin


So you're making a paladin. Good choice. Now what race do you want to make it? Well obviously if you want to play horde there's no question, it has to be a blood elf. Alliance has the choice: human, dwarf or draenei? Which do you choose? And if you aren't bothered whether you're horde or alliance, then what's the best? Well, it depends how you play.

Pv3 in PvP


I was doing some pvp the other day (gasp, shock, horror!), for the fun of it. So I went into my least favorite battleground: Warsong Gulch. Let me give you a taste of how much I don't like it. I'm not quarter way through neutral standing, whereas I am revered with the rest. I really detest it, but I was bored and I decided to see how pvp viable my realm is at the moment. And I hit upon a strange truth, a crystalizing moment. It is possible to tank in pvp.

Fell Off the Train


Yeeeaaah. Never, ever go on holiday just as you're starting a blog. It doesn't help you get off the ground ans spread those journalistic wings. Straight to the point - I've been lazy. But busy too. After an influx of holidays, weekend breaks, being hacked, and family life, I have finally begun raiding again. Which meant our guild has started progressing again. I don't know why, but still, loot for me.

See you in 2 weeks

This is just a short post to say I'm going on holiday for 2 weeks starting today, and won't be able to post.

Also, the beta invites for Europe should be opening soon, so good luck! I know I'm checking my inbox constantly before I set off.

Pretty in Pink?




On the most part, tier armor is very varied. Some are great and some are frankly embarrassing. Our tier 2, in my opinion at least, is awesome. I don't know why but it just makes the character look...powerful. Except for the kilt. What are we, shamans? Tiers 1 and 3 were decidedly average, and then with the expansion came shiny new tier 4.

Let's face it; Justicar was the first properly brilliant looking tier set for paladins. It looks very paladin like. A true warrior of the light. Oh and the shoulders are shiny. Seriously, zoom in on those babies in a well lit area and the shine is like real life metal. I also like the jewels in the armor. Nice and bright. Then there's the season 1 armor to go with it. That's alright, but it looks a bit plain next to the justicar.

Uther the Lightbringer


Welcome! I decided that I needed to combine my two favourite things about the game: paladins and lore. So who better to profile than the big man himself?

Flashes of Light - What does Wrath of the Lich King mean to me?


We paladins haven't had a lot of news from the WWI, or at all in fact, about what's going to happen to us. What we do have is very vague, and I could write it down on the back of my hand:
