The Paladins were the legendary knights of the emperor Charlemagne. They’ve fought against heathens as the holy warriors. Naturally, Paladin became a class in Dungeons & Dragons, TTRPGs, and role-playing video games. Those games to play as paladin, and RPGs with paladin class can be found on this page.
Paladin is one of the most popular classes but’s it’s rarely implemented in RPGs. I because it’s hard to implement and developers prefer all-in-one warrior class over it. So, paladin class is kind of rare to come by. That’s why I made this list. I’ve recently compiled the RPGs with bard class too. Both are my personal favorites.
Paladin class swears to uphold justice and righteousness against evil forces. They usually come with heavy armor, a shield, a mace, unimaginable willpower, and divine spells powerful against undead, witches, and demons.

Paladin experience in Wrath of the Righteous is second to none.
2. Baldur’s Gate 3
3. Pathfinder: Kingmaker
4. Pillars of Eternity
5. Diablo Franchise
Paladin in Diablo 2 and Crusader in Diablo 3.
Diablo 4 currently does not have Paladin class, perhaps they’ll introduce it with a DLC.
6. Dragon Age Franchise
Origins and DAO2 have templar class which is pretty to close to paladin. The final game Dragon Age Inquisition has Paladin class directly.
You can find bazillions of paladin armor, class, skill, spell, and companion mods. Anything you can imagine about paladins, there is a mod about it for Skyrim. So, if you feel like going back to Skyrim, you can do it now and follow the paladin’s path!
Best Skyrim paladin mods:
- Vigilant: Story mod about the Vigilants of Stendarr. True paladin quest mod.
- Stendarr Paladin Armor Set: For perfect looks.
- Paladin Spell Pack: Fourty-three new Restoration spell
- Elisela the Fallen Paladin: Paladin class follower.
The game itself has a paladin armor set and a small quest about it. But it can never compete with paladin mods on nexus. So, mods are basically what makes Skyrim the game it is.
