DK Online Paladin General Guide by mrvayl

WARNING :
MY GUIDE IS NOT 100% PURE TO ANY SELECTIVE PLAYING STYLE. THIS GUIDE IS FOR THE MAIN PURPOSE OF AN IDEAL WAY OF CREATING A PALADIN TO YOUR CHOOSING (DPS/Tank/Support). I WILL BE GIVING MY MAIN OPINIONS OF WHAT MAY SEEM BEST FOR SKILLS AND STATS FOR YOU TO GET AN IDEA OF WHAT TO ALLOCATE WHAT.

PLEASE BE AWARE I WILL NOT BE LISTING ON WHAT RUNES AND EQUIPMENT YOU WILL USE. DEPENDING ON WHAT TYPE OF ROLE YOU TAKE AS A PALADIN IS ALL CLEARLY UP TO YOU! ONLY ADVICE I CAN GIVE YOU IS THE RUNES THAT ARE GOOD THAT WILL INCREASE YOUR STATS TO YOUR BUILD YOU MAKE! EQUIPMENT SHOULD BE NEAR A GOOD LVL TO CAP AND BE +9 IF YOU DON’T WANT IT TO BREAK IF YOU’RE A DAREDEVIL THEN GO FOR +15!

What is a DKO paladin?

Paladins are holy warriors, guardians of the light who support the team with the strength of the faith. Paladins are united by a strong belief in the Goddess Dione and possess the power to bolster their allies. Those who choose the way of the Paladin ride into battle with the power of the gods inside them. “

” Ordained by the Goddess Dione and possessed with righteous fortitude, they’re equally comfortable assaulting the enemy front line with the vanguard or supporting their allies from the rear. ”

Choosing your role as a Paladin ….

Depending on your playing style you will have roles as you progress your Paladin in the world of DK Online. Roles you may look at are DPS, Tank, and Support. These three roles are all depending on how you play or want to be either for PvE or PvP.

TANKS
Tanks are players that may use the 2h sword and have more of a focus build around ATK : DEX. They’re players that take hits and can do massive amounts of damage to chunk players HP. These players are the main focus of protecting and usually damaging in both PvE and PvP.

DPS
DPS are players that will be using 1h & shield. Primarily focusing with CON : ATK are players that do certain amount of damage while still maintaining their HP. They may not hit as much as Tanks, but they get targeted less compared to the Tank.

Support
Supportive Paladins can either use 2h or 1h & shield, but may go with the 2nd option for higher defense. They will probably focus on some ratios to CON : INT or INT : CON. These type of Paladins will focus on primarily Healing/Debuffing/Resurrecting and DPS.

*** Hybrid Paladin is really sketchy as of right now to me since this game targets mainly for the PvP crowd and that of Siege Wars it may not come in handy out of PvE. That is my 2 cents unless I can get some info about it.

THE SKILLS OF PALADIN

ATTACK TREE

Divine Strike [A] – This will be your basic DPS skill. Keep at required lvl to do appropriate DMG.
Holy Smash [A] – Can get to Lv 2 or MAX . Gives the Status Effect : Stun 50%
Hammerblow [A] – Max this skill out since it does a higher damage rate by 10 then Holy Smash however you can just keep it at Lv 2. Its up to you. Gives the Status Effect : Stun 50%
Bind [A] – You can keep this skill at Lv 1 however you can use this skill to hopefully bind a player and redo a stun chance. Its up to you.
