Paladin Information


Paladins train for years to learn the skills of combat, mastering a variety of weapons and armor. Even so, their martial skills are secondary to the magical power they wield. When making a paladin, focus on Strength for physical attacks and Charisma for spellcasting.

Notes: The paladins strength is his ability to to deal several small amounts of radiant damage. Many items and paladin abilities grant extra attacks with radiant damage. So every item granting a bonus on radiant damage is taken into account several times. Besides this the paladin is able to use healing and powerful support abilities for the entire party.
Charisma as recommended in the in-game description has no great effect on paladin spells.
