@Alex Ziebart: True enough (to an extent), although it's a bit more complex a philosophy than that. The tauren's belief is based on druidic roots, this is true (and to an extent, shamanistic). The way Taurens are Sunwalkers exist in a way to cope out that lack of balance that they believe was not being filled--that being sun worship to reflect all the moon worship that was occurring. Although, does the belief on trying to extend that balance extend even further? At this point I'm only going into speculation, but I've always seen the tauren as trying to fill out those defensive and offensive roles that were not being filled in their eyes by the other half of the belief spectrum. This would allow them to take on that aspect of the Paladin, and allow them to utilize those beliefs in Mu'sha to exercise a different sort of balance to the world--by protecting what needs protecting, and vanquishing what needs vanquishing, as opposed to the healing they perceive the elves to do.That was always how I managed to link them more into being 'paladins' than druids, although it is entirely just my own reasoning. Certainly it hasn't been established by Blizzard, but it does help fill in that missing link between the classes that would allow them to be considered paladins. :)
