Can someone give me a good reason/argument as to why dark iron dwarves are able to become paladins?  Seems like it shouldn't be allowed to me, and I'm curious as to the logic behind it.

i don't think there is one tbh. the only thing i read about was Ion (don't quite remember) saying that the team was nostalgic with the allied races so they decided to keep shamans in the horde and pallys in the alliance even if it doesn't make any sense (like zandalari warlocks)

Dark Irons have had Priests within their ranks in the past, it's not a big leap to see Paladins start to pop up, especially that the influence of Ragnaros on the clan is no longer present. It's also possible that free acting Dark Irons, or those in factions such as the Thorium Brotherhood or Mithril Order, have returned to their kin with these new experiences and teachings that they've picked up from their travels and dealings with other races. It would explain things such as fishing as well... Dark Irons, who've lived inside an active volcano for centuries, don't strike me as the sort to be artisan fishers.

I wonder if their pubic hair is fiery too.

Wait, did I say this out loud?

As for why Dark Iron Dwarves can be paladins there were at least 2 paladin enemy types in Blackrock Depths, the Anvilrage Officer, who could cast Holy Light and Divine Shield, and the Anvilrage Marshal, who had Devotion Aura and could cast Holy Light.

As for why the Dark Irons could access the light in the first place I'd guess that only the Dwarves who didn't know what their leaders were planning could still access the Light, perhaps they truly thought they were doing the "good" thing by defending their home and people.

Correct! I hated the mob packs in BRD. Dark Irons were isolated from their Dwarven cousins for hundreds of years, during which Paladins first came about via the Silver Hand. Maybe it's possible that the Dark Iron clan created their own militaristic branch of zealous warhammer wielding warrior clerics who tap into virtually the same kind of powers, similar to the Blood Elves at the start of TBC. There's a lot of possibilities here.

Ahhh yes... BRD... I had almost wiped that unpleasant experience from my memory.  Thank you (all of you) for your replies.

We need more horde paladin races. The new trolls wouldn't be bad from what I've seen. Tauren or Belf paladin is just so ugh.

And I still wonder how can a race become a Priest and not a Paladin... especially for us Horde player, every race but the Orcs can become Priest (even the Undead!!!) and yet only BlElfs and Taurens can be Paladin... at least Undead should be able to be Paladins, since they are "born" from what remains of Humans and BlElfs.

Thats true. I always wondered why Undeads don't have just copy pasted classes of Humans. There was a long time, where they weren't allowed to be Hunters. That didnt make any sense to me. And you are right. They already can be Priests, so they have access to the Light, which should enable them to be Paladins as well.

I suppose that, to the Orcs as a whole, the faith in the Light rather than the strength of a united clan, the value of one's honour and the wisdom of the ancestors doesn't represent what they believe in and strive to be. Not to mention that it basically represents the indigenous races of Azeroth, not them, as well as various points in Orc vs Human wars where a Human paladin wrecked scores of Orc warriors with relative ease. I imagine it would make them distrustful at best - similar to how they view Warlocks.

As if there is any logic to what races can and cannnot become anymore. :p

Since Iron dwarves can be both paladin and shaman, i think zandalari trolls should be able to be paladin.

Maybe remove warlock as a playable class and change it to paladin, since this makes more sense and majority of the horde wants this.

I wasn't complaing about the lack of Orc Priest (taht would be pretty odd) but about the logic behind races that can be Priest and not Paladin when both Paladin and Priest are devout to the Light

      Well this is a little sad, or great depending on your outlook - Rextroy, the Paladin who recently soloed both MOTHER and Vectis in Uldir (with Vecits taking all of 0.5 seconds) with very, very creative use of game mechanics, got banned for a month. The Vectis kill in particular seemed to be a sore spot, as it got him reported many times, but there's still no word from Blizzard on what specific incident caused the ban.
      Check out Rextroy's thoughts on the matter below and check back later in the week when we'll be posting an in-depth interview with the new solo king (or rather, highest profile soloer at the moment), focusing on the exploit/creative use of game mechanics dichotomy.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a mythic raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of three within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.
      We are always looking to add players with a friendly personality and lots of passion for the game. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      6/8H, 8/8N Uldir.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid. We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders. You must be able to take constructive criticism and have ownership over your level of play, and be willing to put in the effort to be a contribution to the team.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for farming the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS - want to add a mythic capable ranged DPS
