Please, please, please move these articles to WoW Rookie. How about an opinion piece on upcoming paladin changes in the next patch? Or a piece about the effects of the T10 set bonuses on healing/dps/tanks? Or maybe even a piece about the future of the paladin with the consolidation of stats in Cataclysm? Just no more rookie/noob/twink articles please. The Light and How To Swing It is not the place for rookie/noob/twink tanking, especially not a FOUR PART SERIES on it.

And before anyone comments saying "OMFG READ THE OTHER POSTS" I do. And the last one we had that was remotely close to anything the majority of readers want washttp://www.wow.com/2009/06/25/the-light-and-how-to-swing-it-patch-3-2-and-the-paladinThat was patch 3.2 if you didn't notice. That was in June. I don't know if Zach is gone or what, but he was informative AND full of opinion, which is what we all want. "I like Decursive for my remove debuff addon" is the most opinionated thing said in this article. If I wanted News I'd go to MMOChamp, if I want opinion I come to WoW.com. I don't want that to change, but you give neither in these articles.

I miss Zach. It's like we went from somebody who had no clue how to tank but at least loved the class to someone who can't really think of anything to talk about except tanking in content that no one who is advanced enough to even read this site cares about. This entire 4 part series could have been one sentence.The Light and How to Swing It: Low Level Tanking"Nothing you do is relevant because you don't even get your high threat abilities until you're at least level 60"The End

Yes, it is.How many times does this have to be pointed out? No class column is the exclusive property of level 80 raiders. The Paladin column is for ALL Paladins, not just the endgame elitists.Wait your turn.

Caly, you'd have a point except for the fact it's only been for low-level players lately.A far cry from ALL Paladins. Levelling guides do not a Class Column make.

FOUR PARTS.FOUR.FOUR PARTS.If you started a fresh Level 1 paladin when he posted the first part, you would have been 80 before he finished the series.

Maybe you haven't used the dungeon finder lately, but we have a real need for more tanks on our battlegroup. My pally alt has been level 80 for about 3 months, mainly as a retnoob trying to get into pug Naxx or Ulduar raids so I could get some tank gear. 3.3 finally has me gearing up with badge gear and I did my first raid tanking in Ulduar this weekend for an alt badge run. This blog is the perfect place for this kind of info and I bet I'm not the only one who was helped out by it.
