Champions

From Paladins Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Champions are the playable characters in Paladins. Each one has its own unique abilities and fighting style. Champions use Cards to increase their performance and enhance their skills.

Champions are organized into 4 different types: Front Line, Damage, Support and Flank.

Every champion possesses a unique weapon, 4 skills, and a special skill called Ultimate. Ultimate skills are not subject to cooldown, but instead have a meter that must be charged before they can be used. This meter passively gains a 1% charge every 3.33s but can be actively increased by dealing damage to enemies and restoring the missing health of allies. Landing a killing blow on an enemy with a high killstreak grants an additional 10% ultimate charge for each killstreak after the 5th. Using an ultimate will deplete the meter, allowing it to recharge.

New players start with 5 champions unlocked by default: Cassie, Fernando, Pip, Skye and Viktor. Players also get 4 additional champions temporarily from a rotating schedule. The free rotation is changed every 2 weeks.

Additional champions can be purchased for either Currency Gold.png Gold or Currency Crystals.png Crystals. The majority of the cast costs 7500 Currency Gold.png / 200 Currency Crystals.png to unlock while the most recently released champions cost 12500 Currency Gold.png. A few champions (such as Buck and Grohk) cost 5000 Currency Gold.png / 150 Currency Crystals.png instead. All players that participated in the game's closed beta before April 7, 2016 were given all champions that were available back then for free.

The Founder's Pack includes the Champion Pack, which automatically unlocks all current and future Champions in the game.

Each champion has their own Mastery Level, which increases the more they are played. Achieving new levels with a champion grants special rewards.

Players are required to reach Mastery Level 4 with at least 12 owned champions to be able to play Ranked matches.
