The Paladin is a Tank Type unit unlocked at Player Level 6.
Description: “The large shield can defend from all kinds of attacks. The shield can reduce damage and defend against combustion, poison and freeze attacks.”
Paladin is a great unit that helps a lot in battles. Has high amount of HP (besides his damage reduction) and a fair attack damage. The only cons are that it’s movement and attack speed are very slow.
Paladin‘s shield can reduce 80% of the taken damage, granting immunity to three status changes, like the description states: damaging type, like combustion and poison, and debuff type, like freeze, that greatly slows down units and reduce the damage they deal to enemies or buildings. That makes it perfect to decoy the attention of enemy defense artilleries, and can survive for quite a lot of time even if more than one artillery is shooting at him (with the shield on of course).
However, he’s still affected by paralysing attacks (like electric trap mine or lightning tower). Moreover, the shield can be blasted away by wind cannons, Blast Gunner and Samurai's Iai skill, leaving Paladin vulnerable.
