    he is a priest. priests use shadow and light magic by channeling it. Paladins are infused with light and cant use shadow magic. Blizzard also stated he is a priest.

    Lore characters can wear whatever they want and use whatever weapon they want. they are not restricted like players are.
    Thrall was a shaman that used plate armor.
    the report systems sucks and the mods are bias.

    Skipping the weird emasculation comment this is pretty much correct.

    At some point Thrall will figure out that the elements didn't abandon him, but he turned his back on them and then he'll discover that the power was inside him all along!

    So yeah, Thrall is fighting as he was originally trained - to be a warrior, but at some point we are going to reforge his connection to the spirits. We just don't know when yet. Maybe this expansion after he and his mom have a long talk?

    I logged in to my priest just to double check, they can't wear plate. Whatever he is he's clearly not a priest.

    Anduin is a shame, and even more so wielding shalamayne. This is simply unacceptable. I remember that the warriors are still waiting for the Shalamayne skin, Blizzard owes us for having given the Ashbringer to the paladins. This I do not think to forgive Blizzard

    Anduin insults Varian's memory.

    Lore characters never fit class archetypes particularly well though.
    speaking of, Blizzard finally remembers Frostwolves exist

    A Paladin is just a priest who decides to pick up a sword and wear plate armor. There is nothing more to it. Any race that has both warriors and priests should also have access to paladins. By this i mean, of course, undead.

    thrall was a warrior before he became a shaman

    Lmao. So by that logic if I as as a developer, wear a doctor uniform will I suddenly become a doctor? NO, I will be just developer wearing doctor uniform.

    I can't operate using specialized tools like scalpel but sure as hell I can take them in hand and do some flesh slicing.

    I think it is SPOILER.

    When you save him from Torgast, he use ahaman powers to stun his torturer.

    Yeah, Anduin is a Paladin.
    Anduin is a Priest that wears armor because he’s a King. He wields a sword because it was his fathers’.

    Blizzard has already confirmed him being a Priest at BlizzCon, during the Q&A.

    I wouldn't take the generic NPC replacements too seriously.

    It says "Frostwolf Warrior" for Thrall, and Thrall isn't Frostwolf.

    Archmage Modera has the generic name of "Kirin Tor Conjurer" when she isn't a conjurer.

    The reason why Anduin is a Paladin because he does Melee attacks so he would need to be named after a melee class because it would look weird for a Priest to use melee attacks.

    Blizzard has already adressed this question many times.
    Lore characters are not bound to class restrictions.

    Anduin is primarily a priest, but dons full plate. In swordplay he's not exactly a genious.
    The companion is showed as a stormwind paladin cause it's of the way anduin fights there... hitting stuff with a sword and casting a spell now and then.

    Thrall was always a warrior in the 1st place. Within the period between durnholde and WoD he was a shaman... but has ever since lost most of his powers and returned to being a warrior.

    The class lore is very different to class gameplay, in lore there are a lot of blurred lines when it comes to classes. For example Rexxar is a Beastmaster, a melee beastmaster, but hunter beast masters are ranged.

    Also classes can be combinations of two or three classes. Kael'thas had a mixture warlock and mage powers but is classed as a bloodmage a spec not in game, a spec that is integrated into a lot of affliction warlocks and fire mages.. Also mages in Warcradft Orcs & Humans could summon scorpions. A lot of people laughed at Rhonin commanding an army of raptors in Night of the Dragon, but in lore Mages can talk to animals.

    A lot of classes can cross into each other too. Mages in lore can also cast lightening bolts as seen in Warcraft 1 and 2. Yet shamans can only do that in WoW. Tidesages in WoW arer a cross between Shaman and Mage using water elementals but commands the water very similar to resto shamans.

    Mages, in general are a collection of many sub classes, priests are the same. It would be like saying why doesnt Anduin just change spec enter shadowform because he's a priest and priests do that.

    basically what I am getting at is Blizzard has put gameplay over lore. Anduin is a priest, but that doesn't mean he is bound to the priest of WoW's classes. in the books he isn't a trained fighter, he doesn't like fighting and isn't very capable. as seen in the BfA cinematic where he just wails on this troll. But in lore there is no reason why a priest cannot wear plate armour or wield a sword, its restricted in game because gameplay reasons.

    When was the last time Thrall associated with the Frostwolves? Certainly not since the founding of the Horde.

    And even then, his generic model is literally a Maghar.

    if he wants to be a paladin he could at some point but he is a priest right now.

    Yeah but he doesn't follow the same restrictions as players do so he could be either or both
