*Minimum level: 6

*Can't get this if you have Consecrate.
- This class is tanky so it's good to focus on getting more health and faith.
- A high attack stat, the passive Righteous Fury and the faith-based Judgement and Bless Weapon skills also give the Paladin potential as a melee fighter, more if the player gets Consecrate early.
- You will heavily rely on your passives and skills when playing this class. It's almost like a mage that specializes in close combat.
- Despite having decent intellect try not to rely too much on Magic skills, as they cost HP to cast. Be also aware that casting Magic skills will kill you if you have less than 2HP, same as casting Wrath of God with 5HP or less.
