Just as the title says, I'd like opinions or thoughts on the impact the new update has on individuals playing Paladin. It seems we're the only class who received no new skills (the skills were already listed on the skill tree, despite no books for these skills dropping from monsters yet) and I know several paladins who have stopped leveling up (apart from dungeons) because of a lack of variety skills recieved at Paladin level (as we level we recieve more buffs).
We receive bless/fist up lvl 6 at 121 and 126 respectfully and bless/fist up lvl 7 at 141 and 146, yet the defense difference is a mere 2 points that, at this level is insignificant because tank classes are easily self supported on maps like Hell. (I.E Auto Genisis from SG and spamming Tiny Pots on Warlord).
Yes, Paladins are a support class. And yes, that isn't suggesting buffs aren't important but towards the end of the game we need motivation to keep playing. Perhaps a new attack skill or DOT skill that would make sticking around for those higher levels meaningful while we wait for new maps to arrive.
