Noble? (Or, in the spirit of the bad jokes, No-bull?)I don't see the Tauren as displaying Paladin like qualities given their willingness to tolerate things like the leader of the Grimtotem. Being silent is condoning evil even if it is not overtly supported.But ethics aside, personally I think tauren paladins are even worse of an idea than Troll druids. Dwarves and Humans have a culture which supports Light and a "church militant." The development of a holy warrior can come from this plausibly. The Tauren are a nomadic culture well suited to the wilderness classes but really can't support a Paladin without some rather radical changes in society. I can easily see Shamanism in Tauren society. Paladin, no.The Belfs... well I think the whole Mu'ru thing was rather stupid (of course I also thought Draenei shamans were dubious), but they at least could conceivably develop a paladin class from their structured society. I think that unless the Tauren learn Paladin from the Belfs or the Argent Crusade, it's really LOL-Lore.Really, I think it is foolish to say that the past Lore of WoW supports many of these changes. Blizz needs to look to the future. Dwarf shamans needs the inclusion of the Northrend dwarves or to learn from the Draenei. Troll druids require knowledge from the Tauren. Nelf mages requires a change in thinking (or else heretical Nelfs) to accept it.
