Paladin in 2020? Still a tank, of nerfed?
So, my main is an I/L, level 200 or so, just started Lachelein. I am grinding & somewhat bored.
I have a Mercedes at lvl 200, who can't manage the 5th job challenge, and a NightLord at level 198, plus a whole bunch of link skill characters at level 120.
I also noticed that I have a level 175 Paladin and wondered if I should advance him.
As you might have noticed, I prefer ranged characters, so a pally might might make a nice change.
Also, I only ever solo, never party, so a pally might well be my only chance to boss.
However, in 13 years or so of Mapling I have seen just about everything get nerfed and wonder if the Paladin is still the invincible tank that he once was. For instance, I notice that certain one hit boos kills can now also kil the pally.
- is it worthwhile to still play a Paladin?
- can I still expect a tank?
- can I solo boss?
- should I scroll & select equips for DEF, or does he have enough inherent DEF that I should scroll for ATT (M ATT?)?
- are there any currently relevant guides?
Finally, we are currently midway through a burning event - should I abandon my current pally & start a new one, for the equips? I ought to reach my current level quickly enough, ecen 200.
Thanks in advance & happy hols
