Lost Ark is a free-to-play action RPG with a lot of content. One of the most important decisions you'll make is which class you play first. There are many to choose from, and you will have many alts, but your first class is how you learn the game. This may leave you wondering if Paladin is good for a first class.
Choosing Paladin as your first class is a good idea. It isn't overly complicated, though you will need to learn how to play support. Since you won't be dealing out large amounts of damage, you will want to pair up with other players. As a Paladin, you won't have any trouble finding others to play with.
