A guildie was asking the other day if there were any blood elf paladins in the group that attacked Arthas in Northrend before he assumed the Frozen Throne and completed his transformation into the Lich King. I didn't think so as I believe that was before Kael'thas gifted his people with M'uru.There was also discussion in the comments of the paladin article about the occurrence of paladins among high elves before the formation of the Blood Knight order. Any thoughts on that?

Canonically, I don't think there were -- as the paladin tradition article notes, quel'dorei paladins were rare and I have no difficulty buying the idea that most of them were wiped out, or worse, when Lordaeron fell to the Scourge.

Not as paladins but priests, perhaps-- not martial Light wielders, but the more contemplative Light wielders?

Seeing as how it was Illidan and his Naga forces that were the ones fighting Arthas, that would make it even more unlikely (blood elves and illidan had not been allied at that time yet).

@PyromelterThere were dragonhawk-riding blood elves in Northrend fighting Arthas in Christie Golden's novel about him. It took place before the Wrath of the Lich King storyline.

I believe there were no paladins at that time or at least none of any consequence, they were more likely to be Rangers or even magi. It seems that she started the order and did not become one until after Kael went to Outland.

Isn't there a blood elf paladin, and former student of Uther, at the Bulwark who has you defile Uther's tomb?

@ Brock ~Yes, Mehlar Dawnblade. There were *some* quel'dorei paladins before the advent of the Blood Knights, just not very many.
