Paladin

Paladin

Information and Controls

Honourable knights who serve to help and defend the fair citizens of Castele

Acquired Skills :

  • Longsword
  • Shield

Paladins pride themselves on their swift and skilful sword strokes and they can protect themselves against enemy attacks with their sturdy shield.

As a combat Life, the Paladin offers a superb balance of offence and defence, and is therefore a recommended Life for beginners or experts alike.

You can even fight without a shield, freeing the X button for Lightning-based sword strikes, but doing so effectively makes you a worse Mercenary.
