    I like the lore and story behind paladins. The class fantasy is pretty fantastic main reason i switched back to paladin after maining monk for so long I didn't want to be a gimmick and story is a huge reason for me to be invested in anything

    Becuase I played WC 3 thoroughly when I was a kid and Paladin was my favorite class.

    Couple that with Ashbringer lore and LOLRET

    Retribution was basically the only Meele/Range hybrid before Legion destroyed it and i liked that playstyle.

    Played paladin since Vanilla and had been 'Captain America' until Warlords then played as a 'lazy' damage dealer after.

    Mainly because we are a noble holy warriors who are protecting others and standing firm at Bosses.

    Funny you should mention that...

    I love Protection. I've never been able to heal well as a paladin (and I've been healing on both priest, druid and shaman for years) and Retribution isn't really fun for me, so Protection it is. I LIKE throwing my shield around, like Captain America. In fact, I like it so much that I named my second paladin Murica and gave him the title of Captain.

    Captain Murica, throwing his shield.

    Oh yes, I've had comments when doing dungeons and raids. Lots of them. But they are so worth it!

    Paladin was one of my favorite heroes in Warcraft 3. And now i can play like Hammerdin Crusader in Diablo.

    Why? Because it was the preferred choice of my GM friend when I went back to my old server to fill the niche in raidingsince no one else played ret (and still doesn't). Otherwise pally has always been a main alt class for me, kinda sick playing it an entire expansion. Usually I main leather classes, wanted to do DH but too many of them, and rogue was off server.

    "Even though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear no evil for I'm the most holy pally in the valley"
    That's why I play a pally the one and only true class!

    Plate Armor, Priest healing, and mage DPS on unresistable damage.

    My hubby has played a pally since vanilla. This xpac we decided to try different classes since we came back from a long break. I rolled a pally to heal - I've played a resto druid since vanilla. Turned out I wasn't needed for healing so I ended up ret I've been enjoying it.

    Started in Classic with a mage. Lvled the char to 60, but decided than to roll with a pally...played the character almost 7 years. I loved it. And after a 2-3 year WoW break i started experimenting with new classes and i regret not sticking with my pally after the break. Now i need to lvl him and make him mythic rdy asap

    More hammertime, hammers all around and in the foes' face too.
    Class fantasy, especially BC-era blood knights as a twist on the trope.
    GW2, SWTOR, FF XIV, you name it; there's always a choice.

    Well yeah lore maybe?.... For every other reason, NOPE.

    I gave up on my pally for a warrior, best decision ever, aint going back to that slowmoving and slowpaced gameplay. Possibly if guild needs a healer but then I rather play on my priest... Pally has been shelved forever now, which is sad as it's been my main in 4 expansions but enough is enough, we've never been worse imo (dps-wise).
