So somewhere on the forum I read a very detailed post about emblem classes, how they work and which path makes sense based on the class talent. So that brings me to one of the more unique class types based on heroes that fall under it…Paladin
So more often than not Paladin heroes are more on the defensive side which given the talent makes sense. The talent itself gives additional 25% defense for two turns after being hit.
So it was advised in that forum post that people should lean towards Sword/Health path instead of shield path, and for offensive Paladin heroes I completely agree.
Using this with two heroes for example…
Aegir is Paladin and a completely defensive hero, I would go full shield path, King Arthur however is an elemental defense dropper, I would go full att/health path and I could always give a crit troop if I wanted additional survival.
What are your thoughts on this concept?
Edited to add: This is asked because a discussion was had about Telly, and I said I would go full sword with her and give her a crit troop while others said they would go shield because she’s Paladin class.
