Historically in Warcraft franchise, the Paladin's choice of weapon was a big smashing hammer. This theme was continued with World of Warcraft in that the starting weapon for a paladin is a big bonking hammer. Add the mid 20s Paladin quest to get a another awesome hammer.
What is the symbol that is used to represent the paladin class?
What are some of our spells? Hammer of Justice, Hammer of Wrath, Hammer of the Righteous
Look at the icons, they all have hammers in them.
In Burning Crusade, the icon Paladin in the intro smashed undead with his hammer.
Ok, Wrath of the Lich King... Where is the hammer love?
The hammer love for Paladins at level 80 are for the Ret Paladins with a nice crafted epix, some good raid drops, etc.
For the healers, they also got some good hammer loving that sport spell power.
One hammer... that has defense... item level 175....
No tanking hammer love, instead, we use a sword, which is all good and fine, but I am a paladin, I want a hammer to tank with, it is what the class is about!
I guess I could snag a dps based mace, but that just seams wrong.
On a positive note for holy paladins, the next legendary item is a healing mace!
Any way, happy gaming and may your hammer ever bonk baddies on the head and if you must use a sword like I do, use it in defense of the weak.
It goes to 11 (or 10)
