Looking for the best Lost Ark Paladin builds? Here are all of the skills you’ll need to dominate PvE and PvP battles as the powerful Warrior.

While support style roles in MMOs are typically less popular, they’re absolutely essential to a group when completing end game content and it’s no different in Lost Ark.

With the Paladin being one of the few classes that can heal, it makes it the perfect choice for players who prefer to take a back seat on the DPS and instead focus on keeping their party members alive.

Of course, in order to get the most out of the Paladin, you’ll need to be familiar with the best PVE and PVP builds, and luckily, we’ve got you covered.

The Paladin is capable of healing and dishing out DPS.

Gunlancer, Berserker, or Paladin

While the Gunlancer’s primary role is to tank and the Berserker’s job is to output DPS, the Paladin acts more as a supportive class that aids party members with buffs and heals.

Not only that, the Paladin is capable of dishing out hefty damage in specific windows, but its primary role is to keep teammates alive by using cooldowns at the correct moments.

This is particularly important in end-game dungeons where the smallest mistake can cost you your life in an instant, so having a healer there can be a game-changer, especially one that knows exactly when to use their abilities.

So, although the Paladin won’t be the class at the top of the damage meters, they’ll always be welcome in a group setting.
