It's getting to be more and more I just ignore most people's complaints about what Blizzard puts out in the game. Two new classes with totally new lore for the Tauren is a fantastic way to push the story forward, especially with the promises that the whole thing will be rolled out (hopefully) alot smoother than the previous implementation of class related lore (I'm looking at the little seven line exchange between the Blood Elf Paladin leader and the wind chimes' leader alongside the brief and pretty silly yell of Thrall and Varian which amount to 'lol you're good paladins now, it was our plan all along,' and 'Death Knights rock. STFU about them", respectively.) What's the problem here, really? Would people complain nearly as much if humans or Blood Elves could be shaman, too? Is there some magical rule set in steel that ONLY the Holy Light can create paladins, and than only Humans, Dwarves, Dreanei, and Blood Elves can make use of it? For those of you who read anything more complicated than Twilight, you'd know that books (especially long running series) introduce new plot elements that may or may not coincide with the old. Whole civilizations and organizations change or adapt as the story goes on. I could go on a row even longer and start making potentially offensive comparisons to real world issues with all this silly stink about anthropomorphic native american-esque bovines acquiring a fictional new source of power normally associated with the anglo saxon 'protagonists' of the series, but that won't help anything. TLDR: shut up about Tauren paladins. It's really not that big of a deal, considering they're not Holy Light paladins. You'll get over it.
