"It's always darkest before the dawn. The dawn will come... The sun will rise. The balance will shift back to where it should be."
Aponi Brightmane

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 reverence of light as part of their worship of the Earth Mother. As such, the Sunwalkers are warriors who wield the power of An'she, the sun in tauren mythology, as they did in the past.[1] They are the most militant branch of the tauren armies within the Horde.[2] 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.

The Sunwalkers' level 20 class mount is the Sunwalker Kodo, and the level 40 class mount is the Great Sunwalker Kodo.


Concurrently with the War against the Lich King, Brightmane and Sagewind discussed whether the Tauren have overlooked a key aspect of balance, noting the night elves' near exclusive worship of the moon, known to the tauren as Mu’sha. Yet both Mu’sha and An’she, the sun, are the eyes of the Earth Mother. The pair concluded that the night elves, through their ties to tauren druids, passed on their cultural prejudice against the sun to their tauren students. To properly revere the Earth Mother they hold sacred, the two decided to strive for balance and further explore the powers of the sun, An'she. Brightmane, a warrior who fought on the Icecrown Glacier, remained hopeful that An’she would shine across the sky, and victory would be won by the mortal races, no matter what perils remained.[3]

The Sunwalkers aided Baine Bloodhoof in a battle against the Mulgore quilboars.[4]

  • Tauren paladin trainers: "The light of the Sun illuminates the path to wisdom. Where shall we walk today, friend?"
  • Tauren paladin trainers: "May the Sun’s light protect you, <class>."
  • "Even in the darkest of times, the sun will always rise to begin a new day."[5]
  • "The sun provides warmth to all of the Earthmother's children."[6]
  • "Like An'she, the sun, we bring light to the darkness."[7]
  • "We protect our tribe just as the sun protects us from the harsh winter."[8]

The Sunwalker order may in fact contain the Seers led by Tahu Sagewind as well as paladins. Sagewind and Aponi Brightmane appear to have created their interpretation of the Earth Mother's balance together, and it is entirely possible that they both lead the organization as equals. However, no tauren priests have yet to be noted to conclusively be part of the Sunwalkers.

It appears that the two developed new techniques to wield the power of An’she, and the Sunwalkers were founded as a result of this new avenue of power, and a new path to revere balance and the Earth Mother. Alternatively, this path was already known (most likely to traditional tauren healers, the Seers), and has simply been rediscovered.

    Aponi Brightmane 说: Even on the glacier itself, the sun manages to peek through the gloom. I have hope, Tahu. I think we'll make it through this, no matter how dire it looks.
