Lost Ark Wiki

Paladin is an advanced class for the male warrior found in Lost Ark. He is primarily a melee class that uses swords as his main weapon. The Paladin and the Bard are currently the only two support classes in the NA version of Lost Ark. The Paladin differs from the Bard as in the Paladin works to actively support his team by preventing damage using damage reduction whereas Bards try to reduce damage by using high-capacity, long-duration shields.

Additional Info

Paladins have a direct line to the powers of the gods, channeling their ancient might into potent offensive and defensive moves alike: They can use holy skills and buffs with the holy book to support their team from behind, or wield a sword and bring punishing skills to bear on the frontline.
