Paladin (PLD) Cross-class skills discussion
Skull Sunder and Raise are useless in 8-man raids. Raise has it’s uses in 4 person dungeons, though.
Protect – can be used if you somehow do not have any WHM’s. Why? The Conjurer Protect gives magic resist (Proshell)
Cure – an enmity generator during fight “downtimes”. Stoneskin does this alot better, though.
Foresight – As basic as this is, +20% defense is nothing to scoff at. Take it.
Stoneskin – This is pretty good. During phases where nothing happens in fights, this is the best skill to use. Hands down.
Bloodbath, Mercy Stroke – While not stellar, these two are the only ones which marginally have a place in your skillbar. Bloodbaths heal gives enmity (effectively +10%), and Mercy Stroke isn’t so bad.
