Ranged Combat?

    After reaching 58th Season on my way to Knighthood in the ranks of my fellow Paladins, I have a question.

    And please, crank up the opinions. I love a good debate!

    I think paladins should get guns - but a special kind of gun, like a "holy light launcher" or something.

    *thinks on it* Isn't that the stupidest thing you've ever heard? *laughs*

    Finally, at 44th level, the Paladin receives The Hammer of Wrath which has a range of thirty yards but it too though has its limitations

    Only usable on enemies that have 20% or less health.

    And with such a slow casting time, its just as easy to smack 'em one more time instead of casting it.

    Bring on the guns, that's a great thought. I was thinking more ranged spells, and you give us guns. I like it.

    Whew, it's been a long time since this one was opened.
    *blows dust off thread*

    I really would like to see some sort of ranged spell, since guns seem to be out of the genre of Paladinhood. What's wrong with thrown weapons? or Bows?
    Crossbows even!


    Wish in one hand...

    Brumble, my Paladin is now into his 60's and still has the same problem. I find myself running around trying to slay that fleeting rabbitt.

    One 'Holy' Ranged Weapon would sure help. I'd even take a vial of 'Holy Water' that acts like a grenade. Maybe an Engineering item?

    Like you said, I can dream.

    Kind of like a Holy Handgrenade?

    That is the winning name, with all of your pull with Blizz, I am hoping you'll get that handled for us.

    Thrown Holy water is a good idea and fits the Paladinesque genre to some degree..

    The Holy Handgrenade is a much better solution, but you'd have to find a Priest and a King who can count to 5...
