Although the Paladins were once loved and revered throughout the lands of Lordaeron, they have since fallen on hard times. The entire Order of the Silver Hand was disbanded for refusing to kill innocent townsfolk who were believed to be contaminated by the dreaded Undead plague. Disenfranchised and driven from their former homes, the Paladins still work selflessly to protect humanity from the gnawing jaws of evil. Empowered by the Light, these mighty warriors brandish both warhammer and holy fire in battle against all who would trample the meek and innocent.
The Paladin is a powerful support hero who relies on the powers of light to heal and revive his allies. His Holy Light ability has a very short cooldown and nearly instant cast animation. With Divine Shield, the Paladin basically gets to use a Potion of Invulnerability every 20 seconds for just 25 mana. This makes the Paladin one of the most survivable heroes in the game, even at a low level. His Devotion Aura makes your entire army tankier and can give you the edge in a long battle.
The Paladin can be chosen as both a first hero or as a supporting second or third hero. The classic "AM MK Pala" combo is one of the most powerful hero combos in the game where the player trains the Paladin as the third hero. "Pala Rifles" is a popular build where the player picks the Paladin as the first hero and produces riflemen immediately without making any footmen. If you pick Paladin as your first hero, getting the Blood Mage as your second hero is a natural choice to supply your Paladin with more mana for more healing.
