Class Passives & Secondary Skill
Paladins are exemplars of Faith and Honor, holding themselves to an unusually high standard and selflessly working to improve the world around them. Their view of the world, so intimately connected to their own belief system, does not always align with those around them. This can set them at odds with those who choose a different path through life.
Above all, Paladins are upholders and enforcers of the law. If that law is defined by a monarch, they will be found among the staunchest supporters of the crown. However, if that law is defined by their own Paladin Order and sets them against the prevailing laws of the land, they can also be considered rebels, or even villains at times. Even in these rare circumstances, one can usually expect mercy from a Paladin. They do not revel in suffering or destruction, but wish in all things for order to prevail. This should never be mistaken for weakness; if a Paladin deems something to be a threat to that order, all notion of mercy disappears. Paladins will stop at nothing to vanquish their foes, often launching prolonged campaigns to eradicate their enemies. When Paladins go on Crusade, even the mighty tremble.

Paladins gain titles based on their rank and standing within an highly organized and regimented group or society of fellow Paladins, often a branch of a larger religious/faith organization. This system of gaining titles is referred to as
based title ups for Paladins are as follows:
When gaining weapon and/or armor proficiencies from titles a character must still receive training before equipping those weapons and/or armor. A proficiency unlocked from a title-up simply opens up the ability to receive the training.
Due to the highly regimented nature of Paladin orders and established religions or faith paths, it is extremely easy to find oneself on the outside. As such there is a robust set of
available to the Paladin class, combining the Faith outlaw title with a Honor based pre-fix outlaw title, such as Oathless Wayward or Oathbroken Heretic.
Paladin play styles vary greatly as they can excel in almost any role. Their heavy armor and array of powerful melee weapon choices makes them naturally suited for front line combat or tanking roles. However they can also use many of their honor and faith abilities to support or heal their allies, which in turn mobilizes their class synergy, Selfless Resolve, giving them the potential to do respectable damage as a ranged caster. What this means is that rather than being pigeon holed into a single role, most Paladins can bring immense versatility to their group by shifting to fit the role most needed for the current situation. That said, they can be built to excel in a particular role as well.
Here are some common ways that Paladins can be built using each of the four basic Faith Paths:
Holy Paladins are the archetype of all Paladins and are well suited to most roles. The Holy path contains some of the most potent healing abilities, coupled with a Paladins innate survivability, this makes them excellent front line healers. By stacking heavily into their Devotion Code they also become extremely reliable. When a big heal means the difference life or death, a high-crit Healing specialized Paladin with the ability to re-roll failed difficulty tests seems to fit the bill.
