With the arrival of Whispers of the Old Gods and game formats, the wiki has switched over to Standard format.
The preferred format for new and advanced players alike, most card lists will from now on only show cards valid in Standard format, making it easier for readers to find the information they're looking for.
For those interested in Wild format, Wild listings can now be found on subpages, such as Deathrattle/Wild format, linked just above main card listings, and Wild strategy and tips are still featured in our articles.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

This card has both Divine Shield and Taunt which makes it a very good defensive wall that takes extra effort to destroy. And arguably more importantly against priests, it sits in the safe spot between 3 and 5 attack, avoiding Shadow Word: Pain and Shadow Word: Death. Otherwise compare it to Lord of the Arena.

Quotes[edit | edit source]

Truth is my shield.
Justice shall prevail.

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

The Sunwalkers are an order of tauren paladins introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. They were founded by Aponi Brightmane after a series of theological discussions with Tahu Sagewind about the importance of balancing out the night-elven focus on moon-worship through reverance of light as part of their worship of the Earth Mother. As such, the Sunwalkers are warriors who wield the power of An'she as they did in the past, the sun in tauren mythology. These 'paladins' exist alongside the renewed Seers, tauren priests led by Tahu Sagewind who also wield the power of An'she. The emergence of the Sunwalkers is a sign of both troubling times and the unending duty the tauren race has to the Earth Mother, in which hope is their greatest weapon.
