Paladin wearing Artifact Armor
For centuries, the elite of the Sultansworn have served as personal bodyguards to the royal family of Ul'dah. Known as paladins, these men and women marry exquisite swordplay with stalwart shieldwork to create a style of combat uncompromising in its defense. Clad in brilliant silver armor, they charge fearlessly into battle, ever ready to lay down their lives for their liege. To be a paladin is to protect, and those who choose to walk this path will become the iron foundation upon which the party's defense is built.
—Game Description
Paladin wearing Artifact Armor

Paladin, equipped with sword, shield and heavy armor, is one of the tanking jobs of ARR. Paladins have all the abilities and traits of Gladiators. They can also use all the cross-class abilities of conjurer and marauder. The most important stat for the paladin is vitality, which increases HP. The level of your paladin is equivalent to that of your gladiator.




Paladins use all the Gladiator Actions in addition to having their own unique actions for their Job:
