The Cards system in Paladins is one of the main features that sets the game apart from other ones in the genre. Cards provide Champions with several different bonuses like modified weapon shots and skills with new effects or higher potency.

Each champion has their own card collection that is exclusive to them. All players start with 5 card for each champion. Additional cards can be obtained by crafting them with Currency Essence.png Essence or by opening Radiant Chests. Essence is a currency obtained from disenchanting unwanted cards or rolling already owned cards from a Radiant Chest.

Cards are organized by Rarity (Common, Rare and Epic) which are then sorted in 4 categories: First skill, Second skill, Third skill and Armor/Weapon. Each card has 4 ranks, from 1 to 4. The higher the rank, the stronger the effect but also the more loadout points it will require to use.

There is also a special type of cards called Legendary Cards. These cards have no ranks and are not placed inside of a loadout, but instead are selected at the start of the match and bring powerful benefits to each champion.

Card layout[edit | edit source]

Rarity: The color of this gem indicates the card's rarity.
Champion: This is the portrait of champion the card belongs to.
Name: This is the card's name. If it's a champion card it will mention what tier it is.
Skill/Card Type: This spot will either mention what skill the card affects. Cards that affect weapon shots are labeled "Weapon" while any other defensive card is labeled as "Armor".
Description: This area explains what the card does.
Rank: This number represents the card's rank and also how many points this card needs when used in a loadout.
Cooldown: This is the amount of seconds a player has to wait before they can make use of this card's effect again. A "-" means that the card has no cooldown time.

Loadouts and deck building[edit | edit source]

Champions use cards through loadouts. Each loadout is composed of 5 cards. Loadouts are selected at the start of a match and can be switched before the match properly begins by pressing the U key by default from the spawn room. All champions start with a pre-built loadout that players can use.

Apart from the pre-built loadout, players can also create and customize their own loadouts. Each champion can have up to 5 custom loadouts. These loadouts can only have cards that amount to a maximum of 12 points. The point cost of each card rank is equal to it's number, from 1 to 4. Loadouts cannot be saved if they exceed the maximum points limit.

Players can set what loadout they will use by default from the loadouts creation screen.

Card crafting and disenchanting[edit | edit source]

Players can craft unowned cards with Currency Essence.png Essence. Cards can be crafted through the Cards screen, which can be found in the champion's profile. Each card rarity has a different cost:

  • Common cards cost 500 Currency Essence.png to craft
  • Rare cards cost 1250 Currency Essence.png to craft
  • Epic cards cost 5000 Currency Essence.png to craft
  • Legendary cards cost 12000 Currency Essence.png to craft

Owned cards may be disenchanted for Essence. Note that doing this removes the card from the collection and will deactivate any decks the card is currently in. Each card rarity refund a different amount of Essence:

  • Common cards refund 250 Currency Essence.png
  • Rare cards refund 350 Currency Essence.png
  • Epic cards refund 1250 Currency Essence.png
  • Legendary cards refund 4500 Currency Essence.png

Cards can also be unlocked by rolling the Radiant Chest. Any duplicated cards obtained through this chest will refund Essence instead.

Golden cards[edit | edit source]

Gold Cards are special, cosmetic variants of regular cards that can be rolled from Radiant Chests. These golden cards will replace existing cards in the player's collection with an updated gold frame.

Once a Gold Card is acquired, the player will also receive a spray of that card's art. Gold Card sprays are usable only by the champion the card belongs to. Currently there are only a few Gold Cards with sprays. More Gold Card sprays will be added in the future.
