How do I become a Paladin?
You need to level up a Gladiator to 30 first! Also, you need to finish the MSQ “Slyph-management” before the Paladin quest will pop out of the Gladiator’s Guild in Ul’dah. After completing all these, you will be rewarded with the soul crystal, “Soul of the Paladin“, which you need to equip immediately to upgrade your character to PLD.
What’s the Paladin playstyle?
Paladins gain another layer of gameplay in choosing between two stances Sword Oath and Shield Oath. Sword Oath increases your threat and damage, while Shield Oath increases defenses. Using the appropriate stance for the situation becomes pivotal in maximizing your Paladin. Hands down, the Paladin has the highest damage mitigation in the game.
At first glance, it seems that Paladins are probably better at tanking single targets, while Warriors excel at gaining AoE threat.
What are good Paladin stats?
The paladins weak-point is it’s low HP in comparison to Warriors. VIT is the most important stat for Paladins to increase your HP pool. If you need to allocate points elsewhere, STR is a good choice for added threat and damage.
