To say no soul-based magic exists is a foolish claim.
Of course Paladins have faith. Druids have faith as well. And Shaman. But it's not what their class idea is based on. Paladins are based on righteous retribution through the Light. Druids are based on Nature; The plants and the animals included. Animal spirits in WoW are considered Nature Spirits. Shamans are based on serving the Elements and the Ancestors.That's some heavy conjecture. Paladins have faith too, and their faith is rigorous and unerring compared to priests. One of the warlocks themes is demons... I don't know why you people think that all classes only have 1 theme that encompasses them entirely. Some hunters are experts with handling beasts, others are experts at firearms or their bow. One theme of rogues is poisons, another is being quick and agile in combat. Druids either embrace the wild and go for a feral angle, or are more in touch with nature, and go for a healing theme or "moon" theme..
What a coincidence, the class based on undeath has a spell related to a dead character being brought back to life. Whodathunk.Once again...
No such thing as "Soul-based spells." There's enough examples what constitutes as necromancy for anything to dealing with souls with arcane magic to include Drain Souls as a part of necromancy.
As proven above, there is plenty of soul-based magic. All of it is encompased in the Warlock class.
Pretty sure when I execute someone, they die. Yet Execute does not instantly kill my target, it just does damage.Pretty sure if a soul is getting reaped, the soul is affected.
