Best Paladins Champions in Each Class

  • Damage: Drogoz, Cassie, Bomb King
  • Front Line: Khan, Makoa, Inara
  • Support: Furia, Jenos, Mal’Damba
  • Flank: Buck, Maeve, Zhin

During the month of August, we recommend playing Champions Drogoz and Cassie for Damage with Bomb King as a close third option when it comes to AOE. For Support, Furia is a solid choice, however she may not be available due to her temporary removal alongside Lian. Other Support options include Jenos and Mal’Damba.

For Front Line, Khan, Makoa, and Inara are all equally viable. We personally edge towards Makoa, but Inara is has the ability to control an objective or point with strategic wall placement. Finally, Flank Champions Buck, Maeve, and Zhin are the best. Maeve is better for speed, while Zhin and Buck deal brutal 1v1 damage.
