I'm sorry, I know you're talking, I see your lips moving but all I hear us "blah, blah, you can't have nice things". :P

I just find it odd that of all the incongruous elements in, *that* is the one that stretches credibility do much they went back and changed it four years after the Draenei were introduced.

Very likely a side effect of giving Sunwalkers their own special Kodo.

To be fair, male Draenei do look ridiculous on horses.

But that means there was no reason to switch from horses to elekks apart from lore reasons (and at the time of change, the draenei, honestly, had been on azeroth long enouugh to have horses for their paladins if they wanted)

now you are getting into time lines, and background lore stuffs and such

to me paladins in WoW are based mostly on paladins from D&D, where as a fairly low level (iow still training) you raise a mount and create a special bond with it.

draenei live for thousands of years, Velen was one of the 3 leaders of the Eredar, along with Archimode and Kil'jaden. you need to remember that they were one of the first races to be brought into the burning legion by Sargeras (or the ones that corrupted him, depending on if you go with the retcon from BC or not) and the exodar was one of the ships that Velen and his followers fled Argus on, on which they met with the Naruu and learned the ways of light, going from just warriors and mages to adding priests and paladins (light mages and warriors) you dont get hunters and shamans until they are on Draenor and learn them from the orcs living there.

flash forward to WoW time. from the time the orcs first invaded until the start of WoW is said to be 6 years, add in a year or 2 for vanilla (each expansion is basically 1 to 1 1/2 years of time in the timeline) so at the end of vanilla it has been about 8 years that we have dealt with the horde. cue Exodar crash - welcome to azeroth draenei!

2 years in northrend, 1 year dealing with the cataclysm, and now we are almost to the year mark in pandaria...that is only 5-6 years on azeroth for a race that lives 10s of thousands of years, and have been paladins for at least a few thousand.
the other thing you have to remember, is that our player character draenei, lore wise at least, are all survivers from the Exodar crash, and being paladins already, they would have already had a bond with their elleks.

so basically - yes there was no reason to change besides being true to the lore.
belfs had access to horses from previous dealings with humans, and tauren have had a long relationship with kodos, just like spacegoats with their elleks, and they havent been on azeroth all that long.

edit - fixed the planet, Erodar are the race, Argus was the planet..oops

My paladin earned his charger in-game though. I did a whole quest chain, including liberating an ancient *equine* spirit from Dire Maul and killing a Death Knight in the depth of Scholomance and his undead horde in order to get my epic horsie. Kinda silly to wake up one day to find that divine horse you've bonded with is distinctly Elekk-shaped.

You all are crazy, the Paladin Elekk is pure awesome. I wish I could use it on my human.

ok you might have a cause to be upset..but beyond a quest that was part of the game when the only paladins were silver hand members (ie humans and dwarves) there is no lore to support dreanei hand of argus' being on horses

each race has its own paladin faction
humans and dwarves share the order of the silver hand, taurens have the sunwalkers, belfs have the blood knights, and draenei have the hands of argus that is why we have 4 different class mounts despite being the same class (warlocks all have the same mounts cause they are the same faction of fel mages, they just happen to be the more good side compared to some others that work with the legion)

The thing I loved the most of the Elekk on my pala, is that it's much bigger than regular elekks. It can stomp gnomes!

Did you notice gnome mounts are actually bigger than tauren mounts? :P
