Know Your Lore: Arthas, the Lich King’s chosen Last week, we talked about Arthas’ fall from grace. How step by step he moved from a Paladin who served his people to an obsessed, vengeful and ruthless man who would do anything to destroy Mal’Ganis… even imperil his own soul. How his inability to accept defeat and loss broke him. This week, we talk...

Know Your Lore: The tragic fall of Arthas Menethil Last week we talked about Arthas Menethil, the Paladin, the son of Lianne and Terenas Menethil. The Crown Prince of Lordaeron. This week, we talk about Arthas Menethil’s fate. Stirrings of the Plague For a while, all seemed well in Lordaeron. The Trolls of Zul’Aman made a few forays into the kingdom, but Prince Arthas...

Know Your Lore: The beginning of the Third War The skies split open. Demons razed the land. Corpses walked. It was the end of the world. It was the Third War, fought not between Horde and Alliance, but fought by those that lived and wished to continue to do so against the demons of the Burning Legion and their servants and pawns. Having failed...

Lightsworn: Acquiring iconic Paladin transmog Hey, Blizzard Watch, it’s hammer time! The new Wardrobe system was my favorite part of the Legion pre-patch. It has provided me with bag space, oh glorious bag space. I went from having maybe 4 or 5 slots free to having dozens of slots free. To put the new tool and all those free slots...

Know Your Lore: The fall and rise of Tirion Fordring Tirion Fordring is one of the oldest characters in Warcraft lore — not by age, of course. He doesn’t hold a candle to Velen. But in terms of written lore, Tirion’s first appearance predates even Thrall’s debut in Lord of the Clans. However, that wasn’t where most WoW players first met him — no, they...

Lightsworn: The promise of Legion for Protection Paladins Perhaps the reveal that resonated most with me was the kitchen sink attitude that Blizzard was suddenly taking towards class lore. Since Wrath of the Lich King I have been starving for more Paladin-flavored lore in this game and it was so exhilarating to see the new push that the game is taking to focus on the different classes and the stories that make them distinct and special. I’d like to talk a bit in this post about Protection Paladins in the next expansion and what we have in store for us with regards to the new class lore. I especially want to brainstorm a bit on what our artifact may be and what options are potentially available.
