Paladin

Defeat the Lich King on all Hearthstone classes for Young Arthas hero skin We know about the cards coming in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion for Hearthstone. But now, we’re hearing about new features and missions, and the biggest one is that you have to fight the Lich King himself. If you can manage to beat the Lich King on all nine Hearthstone classes, you’ll win...

Lightsworn: Tackling the Tomb of Sargeras as a Holy Paladin There are nine bosses lurking in the Tomb of Sargeras. We'll take a look at the first eight this month, and tackle the big spicy habanero himself, Kil'jaeden, next month when he is unlocked on Raid Finder.




Lightsworn: Stirring in the Shadows for the Paladin class mount If you’ve been dutifully plugging away and finishing all the special Broken Shore weekly quests up until now, you should have earned Breaching the TombĀ for completing the Legionfall campaign. Assuming you’re Revered with the Armies of Legionfall by now, this means you’ve also unlocked something else: a questline that rewards a shiny, Paladin-only class mount!...

Lightsworn: Revised Holy Paladin Tier 20 set bonuses revealed Ever since Patch 7.2.5 hit the PTR, Holy Paladins have been expressing serious concerns about our upcoming Tier 20 set bonuses, which required us to target injured, low-health friendly targets before casting Light of Dawn. Not only did these bonuses seem clunky and frustrating to deal with, they also seemed a bizarre step backwards in...

What other classes would you like to see in Diablo 3? The Necromancer is coming to Diablo 3 and that’s great, but there are a host of other classes from the franchise’s history and lore that we could have seen. One of the classes that sticks out in my mind is the Amazon, especially since we just got one in Heroes of the Storm. But there...

Lightsworn: Bringing the Light to Nightspire and Betrayer’s Rise The Nighthold is a big place, but it’s almost clear of those pesky demons, uppity elves, and grandstanding warlocks. Just two wings await us — the Nightspire, where Tichondrius, Krosus, and Grand Magistrix Elisande can be found, and Betrayer’s Rise, where we can finally put an end to this alternate-timeline Gul’dan. First the peak of...




Would you have made Paladins a Hero Class? This isn’t just about Paladins, but I was reading up on Hero Classes the other day and I discovered that Blizzard considered making Paladins one in WoW back before original flavor launch in 2004. And that got me to thinking about how strange it would be, as someone who played Alliance back in Vanilla, to...

Lightsworn: Bringing the Light to the Nighthold Nighthold is here, friends, and oh my goodness is it gorgeous. We’re just going to like, move in once we kick out Elisande and Gul’dan, right? I’m also a huge fan of how we’re more or less free to wander all over the place — it’s so much more engaging to explore what feels like...



The Queue: Warhammer vs. Warcraft, Order Hall Campaigns, and the Age of Azeroth Chrth Q4TQ: I’m about to get my Warrior to 110 and complete her Class Hall Campaign. For which class should I level/complete the CHC next? I’ve already completed Hunter, Death Knight, and Paladin; I’m leaning against Priest (and not asking Mitch) because I’ve heard the Priest and Pally campaigns are very similar, but otherwise I’m...

The Queue: Now and forever

Hey guys. Listening to Outro by M83, writing the Queue. How are you all doing?

Let’s get this party started.


Lightsworn: Holy Paladin changes, Legendary item updates in Patch 7.1.5 Patch 7.1.5 is on the PTR now, let the datamining commence! Actually, there’s not much new for Holy Paladins. We’ve been in a pretty good place in Legion so far, and it seems that Blizzard is content with where we’re at. That being said, there are still a few minor changes to be aware of,...

Lightsworn: Holy Paladin guide to Trial of Valor Odyn, my dude. I get that you’re a bit peeved that Helya locked you up inside the Halls of Valor for all eternity, but what did you expect after betraying her, killing her, and turning her into the first Val’kyr against her will? Anyway, Odyn’s decided that it’s time to put an end to his...

Lightsworn: How to get the Holy Paladin hidden Artifact appearance Legion’s Artifact weapons have interesting lore, cool abilities, and unique weapon models, but what if you don’t actually like how they look? Sure, you can always transmog them (a great change over Legendary weapons of the past), but it almost feels wrong not to use your Artifact’s actual appearance. Fortunately, there’s a solution: hidden Artifact...

Lightsworn: Final Holy Paladin preparations for Legion The Legion pre-patch is live, demonic invasions are starting tomorrow, and then it’s off to the Broken Isles! The pre-patch brought with it all of our new talents and spells, so if you haven’t yet familiarized yourself with our new abilities, now’s the time. Here’s a handful of things we can do to help prepare...

The Queue: On The Shoulders of Giants

Today’s my ‘Go get injected in the eyes’ day — as you read this, I will likely be in the chair looking at the wall with the restraints in my eyes to keep them from closing. So try and be nice to each other, I won’t be here to read your responses.

This is the Queue. We talk about Blizzard and the games thereof.


Ashbringer Artifact
Lightsworn: Legion’s Ret Paladin Ashbringer Artifact questline How do you do, fellow Retribution Paladins? Nah, just kidding. I normally write the Holy Paladin column here, but I’m filling in for now to tell you how you’ll get your hands on your Legion Artifact weapon, the legendary Ashbringer. Disclaimer: Retribution is my offspec, and while I’m comfortable enough with it to do dailies...
