Actually no. That is regular paladin.

I am thinking of making a grand paladin as well, unique one.

Divine Shield is quite powerful although last 1 turn. I would like smtg between mine and yours. to can cast ally.
Chain Heal is good for cleric too.
May needs a weapon attack skill. Since is fighter.
What is holy light range?

An other skill idea . - - sacrifices half hp to gain +6 attack, last 2 turns CD 5

The Templar imagine isn't bad but I associate it to Aos.
May change weapon to hammer.

Divine shield can protect only paladin himself. For protecting others you need to use transform ability.
Holy light range 3 tiles (forgot that).
He don't need any so called "weapon skills" because he is not a frontline damage dealer - he is supporter who can if needed to bash someone (and has pretty poor health for 6 turns). but main priority for him is supporting others with healing and aura.
Grand paladin though will have weaker version of divine shield castable on others.

Remember that this one can provide +5/+5 armors to all friendly units in a range around him. Imperial shielder will get with all upgrades 13/15 armor and also he can use holy light against undeads to deal 10 magic damage to them.

Nonono. Divine shield can be casted only on self one because heaven protects only caster, not other units and DEFINATELY not as an aura.
Also this ability is availible for all paladins regardless of their status. The difference is in its length.

Aaand i don't like third ability of your suggestion for paladin - he is warrior of the light!!! He can't use tricks with his own health to gain power and this ability will work better for demonic units.

Divine shield in YOUR VARIANT is op as hell as well.
Just think about army of imperial shielders with 13/15 armor and no downgrades! Paladin himself also gains armor and can move freely! Nononononononononono.

And another no is that in your variant most valuable spells have pretty good range so i if i used your variant then i spammed them a lot, casted on my frontlines aura for armor and ran away waiting for cooldown. And he can do it due to his range 3 for that and his great hp and armor. It is ridicilously hard to kill him.

These stats are balanced and not op. Maybe in the ritual change only his armor to -1/-1 instead of -10/-10.
And why this is balanced:
1. Stat wise. He is melee support. His main role is to heal, damage undeads and support friends with bonus armor. Divine shield is "save guard" ability to save your paladin's ass in dark time due to high cooldown and 1 turn length.
2. About abilites:
Ritual of divine protection: why is it more balanced than your divine shield:
a) paladin becomes statue that gives to other units +5/+5 to armors. It can't affect other paladins at all. Also this statue can only return to normal state and can't move or use other abilities.
b) he looses armor, attack range and speed in this form and this means: you can use him at choke point to give near units better armor and that enemy will need to kill him at first. Gives great protection but at great cost because he becomes pretty vurable unit and main target for enemy archers.
c) yes this effect last forever (as long as your paladin is alive and in this form) but it only affects few units and can't move to other place easily: after you used transform ability to move paladin he will be able to moving only on next turn.
Divine shield - "save my ass" ability because paladin (of my version) is really useful unit and players who knows that will try to kill him in first place for sure. Not op because of long cooldown.
Holy light - heals 15 hp, deals 10 damage to undeads: why not 15? Because 15 damage will be too much each turn to undeads (and demons as well if this race will be implemented) for regular unit. It is even higher than his basic attack! And it is ranged! That is why 10 damage to undeads.
Chain healing - i think you don't know how powerful this ability is actually: it heals 4 units for 28 hp in total! And it must be able to heal just 2 units (first gains 10, second 8, first 6, second 4). And with 2-4 paladins you can easily heal whole army in few turns.
3. Because of his abilities in my variant he will be real frontline unit. Not your when you can cast in range 3 on any unit aura for armor and ran away.

On right, u convinced me...
But for divine Shield - gain 10/10 arm last 2 turns CD 5 and self only.
Your is invulnerable one turn, but next one can be killed as well.
Self heal - is good for "save my ass" though not as effective like invulnerabulity.
With 10/10 is less effective still great protection and last 2 turns, meantime can heal or draw back. More flexible I think.


Ritual with less penalty as u said. -1/1arm

For image is good the Templar as base.may change the weapon (they often use hammers )
(The current map editor paladin has a spear - great bonus to cavalry, also two action - range 2 - and takes down almost any mounted unit 1 turn, that would be op as buildable :) )

The stats r ok.

No. I want exactly an invurability.
Like in warcraft 3 - this ability makes them invurable to any damage at all but for only a short period of time.

And because only 1 turn.
Remember that he is frontline caster but still between him and enemies there must be few units. And if they are nearly dying than for at least saving himself you can use this ability to save paladin from arrows and units with tons of damage (Like cavalry). He is more useful unit than even imperials.

And remember that in both forms he is affected by blacksmith upgrades.

A bit better. But still he is smaller than imperial shielder.

Also i don't like that weird color of armor.

I was already working on a redesign of the templar

We might merge the 2 ideas and make the templar learn new spells with his level ups
