Paladins on YouTube

A bit over a week ago, I got an email from Freckles, a Holy Paladin who’d recently made a how-to video on healing Heroic Morchok.

The email was immediately followed by this reaction on my behalf: “OMG! THERE ARE PALADINS ON YOUTUBE!!!”

That reaction was shortly followed by me reacting to my reaction: “Well, duh! Of course there are paladins on YouTube. You can find anything on YouTube, even paladins.”

I guess it kind of goes to show how little I watch videos. It’s funny to say that videos don’t do much for me because I’m visual, but that’s how it is. I need to see words to understand them, and most videos don’t have subtitles. I do all my research via written text. So I’m completely out of the loop when it comes to the WoW YouTube scene.

Which is a shame because there are some fantastic resources (like Freckles’ video) out there, and there are a lot of players who really benefit from videos, and I, who tries to be the Librarian of Paladin Content, haven’t shared them.

It’s time to remedy that.

I added Freckles’ YouTube page Channel to my blogroll.

I did a search through YouTube to find more Paladin videos, but YouTube is so huge that it’s hard to find relevant videos amidst everything else. I wasn’t kidding when I said you could find anything on YouTube.

Some recently updated pages I found were:

Hellseth’s Channel has 2 Holy Paladin guides for 4.3
CrAcK123Cr’s Channel has some videos on Leveling a Human Holy Paladin
PalawinFC’s Channel has some Heroic 10m Videos from a Paladin’s perspective
RXthames has quite a few videos about PvP and tanking
mehie’s Channel has a lot of helpful videos on a variety of topics, among which you can find a number of Paladin-themed videos.

Note that I can’t necessarily attest to the quality of all the channels I listed, but there are paladins out there in the YouTube world, and some of them may be entertaining, informative or all of the above. If you’ve got some paladin channels you’d like to share, let me know and I’ll be happy to update the blogroll to include our cinematographic cousins.

      Yeah, that’s why I’m asking for recommendations. Finding quality, up to date paladin video makers when I don’t even watch videos is a kind of a pain.

    OMG! Paladins everywhere!

    I was actually asked to put some text into my video to emphasize some of the points, but personally I prefer guides without text. I like to be able to focus on listening and watching and go back and listen again and look at specific points in the fight. That is also why I use the whole kill in my guide because I think it tells a lot more than just some short clips and text. I always feel a bit unsatisfied watching most guides nowadays. There is too little information and too much talking about how easy the boss is… Well, it’s not easy on heroic if you don’t have the right tactics, that’s for sure!

    I hope my videos are helpful to someone at least. I want it to be useful to other classes as well, not just holy palas. But sometimes it’s hard not to talk too much about paladins…

    We all learn in different ways. Some like to watch videos others like to read (traitors!). The best way of learning is still to try it out for yourself!

    Thank you so much for posting this, Ophelie. There are a lot of paladins on You Tube and they deserve a little attention for their hard work. If anyone is interested there is a very nice thread on MMO-champion listing T13 paladin PoVs. You can find it here:

      A lot of people do like watching videos, I’d almost go to say that a majority of people prefer videos, which is why I felt the need to be all apologetic that I don’t follow the video world.

      Thank you for sending me the link to your video :). I probably wouldn’t have found it otherwise and I’m pretty sure that a lot of my readers will find it helpful. And I’ll use it for sure when it’s time for me to prep for HMorchok.

      And thank you for the MMO Champion link! I’ll go through the thread and update my blogroll.


  2. All of my guild’s videos are from the holy paladin perspective (myself).
