History

As the 1940s dawned over America, men and women began discovering incredible skills and abilities. When their moral strength inspired them to be heroes, these humans and posthumans were brought together to assist the American government against the Nazis. The hope was to turn a group of iconoclasts into a team of champions... of Paladins.

However, as the Second World War began winding down, a Daemonite flying saucer crashed in the American Southwest. General Zebulon McCandless looked at the teleportation, virtual reality and suspended animation technology of the saucer, and an impossible idea occurred to him. He began drafting a plan to capture the heroes and train them to fight off the End of Days.

The Paladins were sent to observe the Hiroshima bombing, but were teleported into the facility built around the saucer. Their allies and enemies were similarly captured and placed in suspended animation, and so almost sixty years, the Paladins protected "the City" (the name of the simulation) from the portents of Christian eschatology, while around them the world suffered from the lack of their moral fortitude.

Eventually, the greatest hero of their generation, the High, was collected after he smashed against Stormwatch's force-shield, and placed in the City. Despite being clinically dead before being placed in the system, the regenerative technology of the saucer brought him back, and with his assistance, the Paladins and their enemies and allies were able to escape. The breach of the program led the American government to launch the Reaper Initiative, an army of engineered superhumans designed to exterminate superhumans. However, before the Reapers arrived, the Authority arrived and collected the newly awakened heroes. Frustrated from their prime directive, the Reapers spread out across the world, attacking all the superhumans they could find. Despite the best efforts of Earth's heroes, including the Paladins, the Reapers ultimately exploded in the upper atmosphere, creating a catastrophic Extinction Level Event. Now, as their new world is destroyed, the surviving Paladins agree on one thing... this is a world that needs them.

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Paladins are found in Ardougne commonly found wandering near the castle and market. Players can pickpocket Paladins at level 70 Thieving, giving 151.75 experience, 80 coins and 2 chaos runes. Not many people train Combat on them, as they have mediocre drops, probably the most notable of the drops being level 2 clue scrolls, and can hit up to 8, and often.

Paladins will attack players that they catch trying to steal from the silver stall, gem stall, and spice stall. They are from Ardougne's Holy Order of Paladins.

A good strategy when training on Paladins is by using Protect from Melee then restoring your prayer points by the nearby altar. Keep repeating the process to prevent any excessive health loss. Healing using food stolen from nearby stalls is also an alternative. Paladins are weak to magic and stab attacks, the latter being unusual for a platebody and square shield wearing NPC.

Overview

Paladin Mousepad

Paladins are masters of distance weapons, e.g. Bows, Crossbows, Spears and Stars. Paladins are balanced between physical and magical abilities. They advance very fast in Distance and aren't totally inept concerning magical skills. Compared to Knights, Paladins increase at the same rate in Shielding and advance slightly slower in Melee.

Paladins are not severely lacking in any ability, but their forte is the use of distance weapons.

Benefits

Drawbacks

Gains and Regeneration

Gains by level

A paladin will regenerate:

a Royal Paladin will regenerate:

Promotion

When a paladin reaches level 20, he can purchase a Promotion and become a Royal Paladin with certain benefits.

See the page on Promotion for more information.

Tips and Tricks

All vocations should use their strengths to their own benefit. For example, it would be useless for a knight to try and make money selling runes. Instead, use the unique aspects of the vocation to your advantage.

Making Money

  • Sell Ammunition. Using the Conjure Arrow, Conjure Bolt and Enchant Spear spells, you can make ammunition to either use yourself, or sell. After the summer update 2007 the demand is lower, but there are still lots of people buying backpacks of bolts and arrows and there are a lot of people that buy Enchanted Spears.
  • Use Your Melee Skills. Although knights are the best vocation for melee, an advantage to paladins is that they have good shielding skill and acceptable melee skill advancement. When low on cash for ammunition, get a shield and melee weapon and hunt some weaker creatures. This will train your shielding skill, give a little exp, and also give some gold to pay for more ammunition!
  • Use Your Capacity. Since Paladins have the second best capacity after knights, you can also make some money by looting dead corpses of monsters and sell items that have been left behind by other players.

Gaining Experience

  • "Run" large creatures. Running a creature involves attacking them from a distance while staying far enough away from them that they cannot attack you. This is best done in large open areas, but can also be effective in caves if you are careful. It may help to keep a steady distance of 3-4 squares from the monster, depending on your weapon, and to stop for a slight second every 2-3 paces.
  • Hunt with a Blocker. You can usually find a knight that is willing to block for you. This way, the knight will absorb most of the damage from the creature(s), and you will gain most of the experience. Depending upon your prior arrangements, you will usually split the loot with everyone in the hunting party. But it is also possible to block with a paladin as well using spears and a shield. The risk of dying is slightly higher than with a knight, but with good skills and equipment it becomes less wasteful and faster.
  • Hunt with Convinced Creatures. The most valuable way for a paladin to use a summon, is to make the summoned creature block for you. Either convince a creature where you are hunting, or get a mage to summon a creature for you to convince. At level 47 a paladin can convince a Demon Skeleton, which works very well to block most creatures with Poison or Fire attacks.

Advancing Your Skills

Distance

  • Hunt with Small Stones. When your distance skill advances, you will kill creatures very quickly with your Bolts, Arrows and even Spears. Since Small Stones have a much lower attack, it will take longer to kill the creature you are attacking. Since more time is spent attacking a creature, your distance skill will advance more rapidly than hunting normally.
  • Train with players. On Pvp worlds and Pvp-Enforced worlds you can train with people by using Small Stones or Spears at lower levels to advance in skills without increasing your level.
  • Use Balanced Fighting or Defensive Fighting. When using Balanced or Defensive fighting mode you will cause less damage to your opponent and "breakable" weapons (Spears, Throwing Stars, Small Stones, etc.) will not break as frequently.
  • Do not train on Rookgaard, this is one common mistake people make, because those few skill points you get will be obtained much easier and quicker in main.

Shielding

  • Use a one-handed weapon and a shield. When you are hunting less-dangerous creatures, or if you are hunting in a place that you cannot "run" your opponents, use a shield, and one-handed weapons like Small Stones, Throwing Stars, Spears, etc. You can still do substantial damage with some of these weapons, but you will be advancing your shielding skill and your distance skill.

Magic Level

  • Never have full mana. Your Magic Level is advanced by using mana. Every second that you have full mana, you are losing potential magic level advancement.
  • Spend as little time as possible in Protection Zones. You cannot use mana that you do not generate, so spend as little time as possible in situations where you do not regenerate mana.
  • Always eat. Make sure you have access to Food at all times. If you run out of food, then you will not be able to regenerate mana for using.
  • Carry Mana Potions. Not only is this a good idea if you get in a jam, but using Mana Potions will help you advance your Magic Level faster.
  • Use your mana shield. As a paladin, you do not need mana points to attack creatures and thus, if you are jammed, or just as training, you can cast the mana shield spell. Keep in mind that mana lost from taking damage while wearing mana shield will not count towards your magic level.
  • Use exori spells. Really useful for their range and damage, Divine Missile and Ethereal Spear are a really good ways to spend mana especially hunting Undead.

Possible Hotkey Assignments

If you are having trouble with too many hotkeys to remember, then the following table may be useful for you. It provides an organized set of hotkey assignments for the most commonly used spells for this vocation.

This table is only an idea to help you build your own set of hotkeys, you obviously do not need to use these key assignments if you do not want to. See the page on Hotkeys for a blank template.

You can also print this table out and place it above your keyboard as a quick-reference. Make sure you print "landscape" instead of "profile", or you will not print the entire table.
