Neverwinter Paladin Tank Build

Neverwinter Paladin Introduction

If you’re looking for a reliable Tank build in Neverwinter, a Paladin could be an excellent choice.

Paladins are known for their strong defensive capabilities and ability to protect their allies in battle. They also possess some strong healing abilities, making them a versatile and valuable addition to any group. In addition, Paladins have a unique set of abilities that allow them to deal damage while also mitigating incoming attacks, making them a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

Whether you’re new to Neverwinter or a seasoned player, a Paladin Tank build can provide a solid foundation for your adventuring party.

Neverwinter Paladin Race

There are many good options for a Paladin Tank. Drow is a good option as it provides a group buff by reducing enemies defence but selecting another option is generally ok.

  • Human
  • Dwarf
  • Halfling
  • Tiefling
  • Drow
  • Dragonborn
  • Aasimar

Neverwinter Paladin Ability Scores

Ability Points should be put into:

  • Constitution to increase max Health and Stamina.
  • Strength if you need Stamina Regen.
  • Charisma in place of STR if you want to improve recharge speed and can afford to lose the Stam Regen.

Neverwinter Paladin Stats

When playing as a Tank you’ll want to focus your Main Stats into:

  • Defense
  • Awareness
  • Critical Avoidance

Other useful benefits include:

  • Stamina Regeneration
  • Maximum Hit Points
  • Incoming Healing
  • Action Point Gain
  • Movement Speed

You want to have the same rating for these as the value of your Total Item Level to cap out the benefits. So for example if you have a 50,000 Item Level, you also want to have 50,000 Defense Rating. As you increase your Total Item Level you’ll also need to find ways to increase your Stats. Some of these things will be buffed or increased when you are part of a group but this can only be reliable if you are part of an organised team.

Things that are not listed on your Stats sheet are resistances and damage reduction. These are just as important and you want a big focus on those by using Boons, Companions and Mount bonuses that offer resistances to enemies types or damage reduction.
