Class Anthems: Warrior

It's Saturday, so let's look at some machinima. I was thinking about class anthems, short videos which focus one class and make them seem awesome. Something that makes you want to roll a character of that class after watching the video. For example, Blind for rogues.

Here's an anthem for warriors, Red Eye Lobine's music video for Pillar's Frontline:



Ah, good old orc warriors. The Intervene->Spell Reflect was particularly stylish.

So what other videos would be good anthems for other classes? I think of a couple, like Cranius' Big Blue Dress for mages. Oddly, though, I can't really remember any videos that would have been a good paladin anthem.

'Have Gun Will Travel'.

Just give it a listen, you'll see.

"You're gonna go far kid" reminds me of rogues. "With a thousand lies and a good disguise, hit 'em right between the eyes".

Invisusira's "Anything you can do" machinima is pretty emblematic of the warrior / paladin rivalry.

Posted just today on WoW Insider. The machinima isn't as impressive as Blind or Frontline, but the music it literally made for hunters.

Indestructible is THE paladin anthem as far as I'm concerned. I call it my "tanking song". I have it on a playlist of awesome songs I listen to whenever I play.

Would love to see someone do a music video focused on the protection paladin using this song.
