While Skyforge's previously revealed class, the Cryomancer, enjoyed plenty of ways to keep enemies at a distance, the MMO's newly detailed Paladin class has quite the opposite priority in mind. Billed as one of the most durable classes in Skyforge, the Paladin's base skillset is naturally geared around the use of defensive skills to protect both themselves and their nearby allies; shielding them, removing debuffs and stunning nearby enemies.

Even if things go from bad to worse, the Paladin has plenty of panic options at their disposal including the ability to make themselves invulnerable and immune to crowd control. Using an ability called Radiant Aspect, Paladins can even shake off all negative effects, soar into the skies like Thor himself (complete with lighting) and come crashing back down on their enemies; dealing additional damage while simultaneously reducing the damage directed towards the Paladin.

Not all Paladin abilities are utility-based though, according to Allods Team the class is than capable of holding their own through the use of special combos and a resource accumulated during combat known as righteous anger; used to empower a Paladin's abilities and unlock more powerful techniques.

A thorough breakdown of the Paladin can be found here, or you can check below to see the Paladin strutting its stuff in the new class introduction trailer.
