In Bastion Mode, a Paladin boasts nearly unparalleled active tanking capabilities, even with only a single armor repairer.When combined with Bastion Mode's bonus to armor resistance, a well-equipped Paladin can deploy an active tank that can withstand even the full-room damage of a level 4 mission like Gone Berserk.The racial battleship skill also provides a bonus to optimal range, making the Paladin excellent for sniping.
For additional firepower, as well as further defense against frigates and cruisers that close distance too quickly, the Paladin is able to field a full flight of light or medium drones, or three heavy or sentry drones.
The Paladin's immobility during Bastion Mode complements the use of sentry drones quite well, as there is no danger of drifting away from them.
A skilled pilot can even switch between sentry drones and light drones as enemies close distance.
Because NPC cruisers occasionally orbit at ranges between 40-50km, it can be useful to equip a Drone Link Augmentor in one of the Paladin's utility high slots to extend the drones' effective range.
Possessing sturdy armor and advanced weapon systems, they provide a nice mix of offense and defense.
