World of Warcraft: Legion Artifact guides for Paladin And Priest

In the next of our World of Warcraft Legion Artifact Weapon guides we take a look at Paladin and Priest.

Blizzard is preparing for the launch of World of Warcraft: Legion -- and players are too. With a large variety of changes, including the introduction of Artifact Weapons due to hit servers in about a week, players have quite a bit to learn if they want to stay ahead of the curve. With a total of 36 artifact weapons -- based on class specialization -- there's a lot in the way of new stats and traits to learn. So, we've been compiling that data for you in one easily consumable package. 

Below you will find everything you need to know about the artifact weapons for the Paladin and Priest classes in WoW: Legion. There is information on the quest required to get your hands on the weapon as well as the all important stats and traits.  Guides for the other classes will follow shortly and include:
