Additional Details[]

Paladins are specialized in defense, teamwork, and survival. Once transformed into a Paladin, the user will gain an initial 700 ATT and M. ATT boost as well as gain access to unique transformation skills. Their unique status boost skill improves DEF. The player will gain an additional +500 max HP as well as +50 max Stamina. Their weapons also become augmented with the power of light, which extends their reach and attack speed for the entire duration.

Activation of the skill will cause the player to enter a transformation animation.The player cannot move during the animation, but will be invulnerable during that time and for a few seconds after (10 seconds total). The animation ends with a small blast that damages nearby enemies.

Once time runs out, the user will transform back to normal and all equipment—excluding shields—are destroyed.

Upgrading Skills[]

Unlike AP skills that require "Ability Points" gained through missions, the Paladin and Dark Knight transformation skills are upgraded by repeated use. The Paladin Skill tree can be viewed in the Character Menu, pressing c, and clicking the "Path" tab. Leveling up the transformation earns Path Points which allow for ranking transformation skills. The first transformation automatically brings you a Path Point into the skill tree, after that, you must level the tree manually.

You can only gain EXP for the Paladin skill trees by using the skill during a mission, within the time limits. Once the mission's main objective is completed, activating the skill does NOT bring EXP to the tree. A wise decision is to save SP until the boss, then to unleash heaven.

The maximum amount of Path EXP per transformation is 100 points. Players will earn an initial 75 points and may earn up to 25 points by dealing damage to enemies.
Path EXP will only be received when:

  • the mission's boss has been defeated.
  • leaving the mission.
  • you are dead.
  • timer has run out or manually canceling the transformation.
