    Can we expect Orc Paladins/Priests in the future?

    Why and why not?

    Orc Priests might have a higher chance of becoming available.
    We know that there are Orc Twilight cultists that are like shadow priests.

    But Orc Paladins?
    Does the current lore allow it? (you know, playable orcs being green aka corrupted etc?)
    Frostwolf clan is best clan!

    I know it usually comes down to Lore, but when it comes to Orcs, they are a bit dark and limited to the type of magic they use. There is no light for their dark hearts. Plus, they are primarily fel based anyone (The Legion). Sunwalkers could be explained. Even human pallies who were taken by the forsaken could be explained (undead paladins), but I just don't see it for the orc storylines.

    Well we know we'll be seeing an old god very soon, so we'll also be seeing some twilight cultists. Perhaps, with a new warchief, they decide to turn on the cult, and return to the horde with priest knowledge something like that

    Not impossible since even some death knights turned against the Scourge, but i still doubt about it.

    And for paladins, they do not worship any kind of light or anything like that, so, they havn't any source of holy power.

    (Taurens worship the Sun, Draeneï the Naarus, Blood elves stole the light from the Naarus, humans and dwarves worship "The Light", and they all have a special organization such as knights of the ebon blade for Death knights, thoses are respectively called : the Sunwalkers, the Hand of Argus the Blood Knights, and the Knights of the Silver hand (For both humans and dwarves),

    I think we may see Orc priest but not paladin, is more likely to see Undead paladin

    i dont think paladins would be possible, but i could see orc priests maybe one day. not sure how that would fit into lore though
    Too cool for a signature

    Since priests tend to be akin to worship of some sort (either the Light or the Old Gods), I don't see a primal society like the orcs being able to tap into that. Their worship of the ancestors and of the elements manifests itself in the form of Shamans.

    More choice is good but I honestly don't see how it makes sense in the lore, tauren paladin/priest was already stupid enough I think.

    More like dark shamans, if you mean what I'm thinking http://www.wowpedia.org/Dark_shaman

    You know that the part of who they worship is not really a problem, for example the Blood Elves stole the light from the Naarus but the new paladins worship the sun, also the others races could just create their own organization (like how the sunwalkers were created on cataclysm) or just join an organization of their allies.

    Orcs are shamanistic in culture. They won't benefit from the Light.

    They'd have to give us blood elf druid first.

    I remember reading somewhere that their shamanistic power came from a Naaru. Not sure where.

    Having class limitations on any race seems pretty outdated.

    After they've made orc mages, anything is possible.

    and dwarfs got warlocks through the dark hammer .

    Anyways I think trolls would get paladins before orcs.

    The word you want to use is "have" not "of".
    You may have alot of stuff in your country, but we got Lolland.

    Yep but the Taurens were already worshipping the Sun, in fact they simply worship nature so it was easy to explain the case of the sunwalkers, but what about orcs ?
    They do not worship the sun, and even less the nature, i think that they already noticed that there was a giant fireball over the sky. They also do not have any link with any kind of light, it's pretty hard to imaginate that they could find any source of light that is not the sun near Orgrimmar. (They could find this source otherwere but how would it spread ?)

    I guess that you are talking about Dark Irons dwarves ! Yes, they got warlocks through Dark Iron dwarves, who are no longer our ennemies since Moira is their empress.

    We have troll druids, orc mages, and blood elf warriors. What do you mean it's not outdated? The majority doesn't even pay attention to the lore, much less class lore.
