Champions are the playable characters in Paladins. Each one has their own unique abilities and fighting style. There are currently 45 playable champions in the game.

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

Information[edit | edit source]

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Every champion has a unique weapon, 4 abilities, and a special ability called an Ultimate. Ultimate Ability 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 kill streak after the 5th. Using an ultimate will deplete the meter fully, allowing it to recharge.

Deck Building[edit | edit source]

Each champion possesses 3 unique Talents. Talents grant access to different playstyles by providing strong boosts to certain aspects of the champion, with some talents even causing radical changes to the way their weapon or skills work, usually at the cost of some counterbalancing penalty.

Champions use Cards to increase their performance and enhance their skills, and Items to help them adapt to specific situations in every match.

Unlock Champions[edit | edit source]

New players start with 6 champions unlocked by default: Cassie, Jenos, Lex, Ruckus, Seris and Viktor. Players also gain temporary access to 4 champions from a rotating free champion schedule. Every Wednesday at 4AM ET two champions will be changed that remain in free rotation for two weeks. Flank and Support or Front Line and Damage are always exchanged alternately.

The majority of the cast costs 30,000 Currency Gold.png / 200 Currency Crystals.png to unlock, while the most recently released champions cost 60,000 Currency Gold.png / 300 Currency Crystals.png. A few champions (such as Buck and Grohk) cost 15,000 Currency Gold.png / 100 Currency Crystals.png instead.

The Founder's Pack includes the Champion Pack, which automatically unlocks all current and future Champions in the game without any additional costs.

Mastery Level[edit | edit source]

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

Class Support Icon.png Support[edit | edit source]

These champions offer a wide range of utility, both offensive and defensive. However, they specialize in healing and causing chaos in enemy attacks. Support champions gain 100% more Currency Credits.png Credits for healing allies. They gain eliminations from healing a target that gets the killing blow on an enemy. Support champions also gain ultimate charge from healing done to teammates besides themselves. Healing that restores 0 Health (for example, healing someone who is at full health) won't provide ultimate charge.

Class Flank Icon.png Flank[edit | edit source]

These champions excel in both damage and mobility to help them in combat as well as chase and confirm kills from the enemy's rear. However, their low health makes them vulnerable to getting overwhelmed by multiple enemies. Flank champions gain 30% more Currency Credits.png Credits from landing killing blows on enemies.
