"Justicar?!?" Edit

Please tell me this is a joke. Please tell me the Paladin T4 armor sets are not entitled "Justicar," as in "it's just a car." Can this be confirmed? RobertM525 06:37, 4 January 2007 (EST)

What's wrong about "Justicar"? --Sul'jin 06:42, 4 January 2007 (EST)

It sounds like the phrase "just a car." Car meaning an automobile. Lightforge, Lawbringer, Judgement... these sound very paladiny. This sounds like... I have no idea. I'm not see a parallel to the word "justice" so much as the words "just a." Couple that with a noun like "car," and you get a name that is, IMO, hideous. It's like naming the next druid set "Plantatree." Maybe worse. Maybe naming a warrior set "Ridethebus" would be closer. ;) RobertM525 00:06, 5 January 2007 (EST)

This view is, in my opinion, extremely ignorant. You're basically saying "omg I don't like how the word sounds, please change the English language". Do you even know what it means? In your defense, "justicar" itself is not actually a word, but rather a misspelling of "justiciar". According to Wikipedia: "In medieval England and Scotland, the Chief Justiciar (latterly known simply as the Justiciar) was a rough equivalent to that of the modern Prime Minister: the Monarch's chief minister. Similar positions existed on the Continent. The term is the English form of the medieval Latin justiciarius or justitiarius ('man of justice', i.e. judge)." - Flyspeck 00:30, 5 January 2007 (EST)

Precisely: Justicar isn't a word. If it were "Justiciar" I wouldn't care. But unless the word Justicar, not a word close to it, means something, it just sounds awful. Also, can you actually prove that Justicar is a misspelling/respelling of "justiciar"? Further, since a Chief Justiciar was a political position akin to the Prime Minister whose title just so happened to be derrived from a Latin word related to justice, that makes "Justicar" at least three steps removed from meaning anything paladin-esque. BTW, what is the difference between ignorance and "extreme ignorance?" If ignorance is not knowing something, is "extreme ignorance" really not knowing something? :) RobertM525 00:46, 5 January 2007 (EST)

Well, I heard somewhere that "Justicar" is a word made for fantasy based games and books and it's a name of a class/profession/whatever that represents some kind of knight who is devoted to observance of justice or something similar (a word play on the word "Justiciar"). Although I'm not from an English-sepaking country, so this might be false.  Sul'jin  talk  contribs 07:45, 18 January 2007 (EST)
Give me a break Robert. Did you not read the last part of his message? "The term is the English form of the medieval Latin justiciarius or justitiarius ('man of justice', i.e. judge)." If blizzard wants to take a Latin word that fits perfectly with the theme of paladins (warriors of truth and justice; see: Lawbringer, raid set 2) and mess around with it to make it into a "Warcraft word," let them. You're arguing that it's stupid because it sounds like "Just-a-car," and anyone with a knowledge of Latin obviously greater than yours won't think "Just-a-car" but of "Justiciar." It's not like "naaru," "Draenei," or "Kalimdor," are 'real' words either. AzraelOpacus 16:04, 7 February 2007 (EST)

Right now, it doesn't matter what you think of the name, as any access to the Justicar page results in a database error, and has done for some time.  :-p Farmbuyer 11 May 2007

DB errors are random, just reload the page it usually fixes itsself. The move to Wikia should also help fix this. TeжubԎ Ҩ Ѡ 23:39, 11 May 2007 (EDT)

And the Justicar set is what the Draenei wear on the cover and in most photos. Mr.X8 02:02, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
