paladin_class_pathfinder_kingmaker_wiki_guide_300px

Paladin is a class in Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Paladins can both participate in battle and aid companions by healing them. They focus on spells that are effective against evil.

 

"Paladins serve as beacons for their allies within the chaos of battle. While deadly opponents of evil, they can also empower goodly souls to aid in their crusades. Their magic and martial skills also make them well suited to defending others and blessing the fallen with the strength to continue fighting."

Paladin Abilities

 

mercy_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Mercy

At 3rd level, and every three levels thereafter, a paladin can select one mercy. Each mercy adds an effect to the paladin's lay on hands ability. Whenever the paladin uses lay on hands to heal damage to one target, the target also receives the additional effects from all of the mercies possessed by the paladin.

aura_of_resolve_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Aura of Resolve

At 8th level, a paladin is immune to charm spells and spell-like abilities. Each ally within 10 feet of her gains a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against charm effects. This ability functions only while the paladin is conscious, not if she is unconscious or dead.

aura_of_righteousness_bond_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Aura of Righteousness

At 17th level, a paladin gains DR 5/evil and immunity to compulsion spells and spell-like abilities. Each ally within 10 feet of her gains a +4 morale bonus on saving throws against compulsion effects. This ability functions only while the paladin is conscious, not if she is unconscious or dead.

holy_champion_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Holy Champion

At 20th level, a paladin becomes a conduit for the power of her god. Her DR increases to 10/evil and whenever she channels positive energy or uses lay on hands to heal a creature, she heals the maximum possible amount.

 

devine_weapon_bond_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Divine Weapon Bond - Additional Use

Upon reaching 5th level, a paladin forms a divine bond with her weapon. As a standard action, she can call upon the aid of a celestial spirit for 1 minute per paladin level. At 5th level, this spirit grants the weapon a +1 enhancement bonus. For every three levels beyond 5th, the weapon gains another +1 enhancement bonus, to a maximum of +6 at 20th level. These bonuses can be added to the weapon, stacking with existing weapon bonuses to a maximum of +5.
Alternatively, they can be used to add any of the following weapon properties: axiomatic, brilliant energy, defending, disruption, flaming, flaming burst, holy, keen, and speed. Adding these properties consumes an amount of bonus equal to the property's cost. These bonuses are added to any properties the weapon already has, but duplicate abilities do not stack.
A paladin can use this ability once per day at 5th level, and one additional time per day for every four levels beyond 5th, to a total of four times per day at 17th level.

aura_of_faith_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Aura of Faith

At 14th level, a paladin's weapons are treated as good-aligned for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. Any attack made against an enemy within 10 feet of her is treated as good-aligned for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction.
This ability functions only while the paladin is conscious, not if she is unconscious or dead.

mark_of_justice_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Mark of Justice

At 11th level, a paladin can expend two uses of her smite evil ability to grant the ability to smite evil to all allies for 1 minute, using her bonuses. As a swift action, the paladin chooses one target within sight to smite. If this target is evil, the paladin's allies add her Charisma bonus (if any) to their attack rolls and add her paladin level to all damage rolls made against the target of her smite. Smite evil attacks automatically bypass any DR the creature might possess. In addition, while smite evil is in effect, the paladin's allies gain a deflection bonus equal to her Charisma bonus (if any) to their AC against attacks made by the target of this smite. If the paladin targets a creature that is not evil, this smite is wasted with no effect.

smite_evil_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Smite Evil - Additional Use

Once per day, a paladin can call out to the powers of good to aid her in her struggle against evil. As a swift action, the paladin chooses one target within sight to smite. If this target is evil, the paladin adds her Cha bonus (if any) to her attack rolls and adds her paladin level to all damage rolls made against the target of her smite, smite evil attacks automatically bypass any DR the creature might possess. In addition, while smite evil is in effect, the paladin gains a deflection bonus equal to her Charisma modifier (if any) to her AC against attacks made by the target of the smite. If the paladin targets a creature that is not evil, the smite is wasted with no effect.
The smite evil lasts until the target dies or the paladin selects a new target. At 4th level, and at every three levels thereafter, the paladin may smite evil one additional time per day

channel_positive_energy_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Channel Positive Energy

When a paladin reaches 4th level, she gains the supernatural ability to channel positive energy like a cleric. Using this ability consumes two uses of her lay on hands ability. This energy can be used to cause or heal damage, depending on the creatures targeted. A paladin channels positive energy and can choose to deal damage to undead creatures or to heal living creatures. Channeling positive energy causes a burst that affects all creatures of one type (either undead or living) in a 30-foot radius centered on the paladin. The amount of damage dealt or healed is equal to 1d6 points of damage plus 1d6 points of damage for every two paladin levels beyond 1st (2d6 at 4th, 3d6 at 5th, and so on). Creatures that take damage from channeled energy receive a Will save to halve the damage. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the paladin's level + the paladin's Charisma modifier. Creatures healed by channel energy cannot exceed their maximum hit point total—all excess healing is lost. This is a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity.

lay_of_hands_icon_pathinfer_kingmaker_wiki_guide_80px
Lay Of Hands

Beginning at 2nd level, a paladin can heal wounds (her own or those of others) by touch. Each day she can use this ability a number of times equal to 1/2 her paladin level plus her Charisma modifier. With one use of this ability, a paladin can heal 1d6 hit points of damage for every two paladin levels she possesses. Using this ability is a standard action, unless the paladin targets herself, in which case it is a swift action.
Alternatively, a paladin can use this healing power to deal damage to undead creatures, dealing 1d6 points of damage for every two levels the paladin possesses. Using lay on hands in this way requires a successful melee touch attack and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity. Undead do not receive a saving throw against this damage.
