Legion Paladin Rework

Legion Paladin Class Skills Breakdown

When you buy a Legion Armor T-shirt or Paladin Armor T-shirt from, each comes with an awesome weapon and half of the "Legion Paladin" class. Combine both halves to create the full class in AdventureQuest Worlds! Themed after the shirts... we merged Artix's Paladin armor and Dage's Paragon armor together into a horrifying and powerful new class.

Legion Paladin Member Trial Period

We're giving Members the opportunity to try out Legion Paladin! When this week's release goes live on Friday, May 10th, Members can find the Legion Paladin Trial class in the Featured Gear Shop.

This is a temporary version of the Legion Paladin Class that is only usable until Tuesday, May 14th. After the trial period ends, the Legion Paladin Trial class will turn into a Limited Event Coin.

Based on your feedback, we may do more class trials of this nature in the future.

Small QoL update for Legion Paladin

  • Blasphemous Battleaxe: Can no longer miss.
  • Incantation of Sin:Can no longer miss.

Legion Paladin Details

Recommended enhancement: Lucky, Hybrid. Legion Paladins favor the use of Souls over Spirits. As such, they have been exiled from the Paladin Order and are unable to channel Spirits through normal means.

Stat Model: Hybrid

Mana Regen
Legion Paladins gain mana when they:

  • Strike an enemy in combat (more effective on crits)
  • Are struck by an enemy in combat
  • Are under the effects of Spirits (restores 5 mana every 2 seconds)

Active Skill Breakdown


Rank needed: 1 / Auto Attack
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: 110% Hybrid
Range: Melee
Cooldown: 2 seconds

Strike your target with a malice filled attack, granting you a Soul in the process. Souls last 10 seconds, stack to 20, and are used by your other abilities.

Souls are what allow Legion Paladin to function. Each time you gain a Soul, you gain Crit Chance, and the damage of most of your skills are increased. 

Blasphemous Battleaxe

Rank needed: 1
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: 50% Hybrid
Range: Long
Mana Cost: 20
Cooldown: 5 seconds

Swing your soul infused battleaxe at your target, dealing increased damage for each Soul you have while also granting you a Soul.

If you have Spirits, applies Defiled to your target, reducing their Haste, Crit Chance, Dodge, and outgoing damage by 30% for 5 seconds. Can't miss.

Much like Desecration, this skill also grants you a Soul. In fact, almost all of Legion Paladin's skills grant you a Soul upon use. This skill also applies a pretty hefty debuff to your target if you have Spirits. What are Spirits? Well keep on reading!

Soul Convertor

Rank needed: 2
Target: Friendly
Max Targets: 7
Type: -200% Hybrid
Range: Infinite
Mana Cost: 30
Cooldown: 5 seconds

The spirits forsook you, so you created your own. Heals you and your allies, then converts up to 10 Souls into Spirits. Spirits last 10 seconds, restore 5 mana every second, and are used by your other abilities. You and your allies also gain a Spirit Shield, increasing Damage Resistance by 30% for 10 seconds. Always crits.

This skill is where Legion Paladin gets really interesting. Essentially, you trade in your Souls to heal yourself, your allies, and unlock the ability to apply some powerful buffs and debuffs. In other words, you're effectively exchanging your damage output to become a pretty sturdy tank in return! 

Incantation of Sin

Rank needed: 3
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: 150% Hybrid
Range: Long
Mana Cost: 25
Cooldown: 12 seconds

Unleash a ruinous wave of dark magic, dealing increased damage for each Soul you have while also granting you a Soul. 

If you have Spirits, applies Focus for 4 seconds, which forces your target to attack only you for the duration. Also applies Safeguard for 2 seconds, reducing the damage you take based on your Attack Power. Can't miss.

A more powerful skill that also grants you Souls. When you have Spirits, you'll not only apply Focus to your target, but also Safeguard to yourself, which is effectively an extra layer of damage reduction on top of your Damage Resistance, so you'll be withstanding some of the most powerful monster attacks! However, this version of Focus doesn't last as long as most, so you'll have to time it carefully.


Rank needed: 5
Target: Enemy
Max Targets: 1
Type: 350% Hybrid
Range: Long
Mana Cost: 30 
Cooldown: 18 seconds

Combine your light and dark powers to create a devastating spell, dealing increased damage for each Soul you have while also granting you a Soul. 

If you have Spirits, applies Shadowblight to your target, a DoT that also reduces Damage Resistance and DoT Resistance by 30% for 10 seconds.

Your strongest attack that once again also grants you Souls upon use! When you have Spirits, you apply a defense debuff to your target, perfect for increasing your party's total damage!

Passive Skill Breakdown

Heretic's Armor

Rank needed: 4
Type: Passive

Endurance increased by 100% and Damage Resistance increased by 30%.


Rank needed: 4
Type: Passive

Haste increased by 10% and Hit Chance increased by 20%.

Soul Infusion

Rank needed: 10
Type: Passive

Blasphemous Battleaxe applies Soul Infusion for 10 seconds, increasing your Crit Chance by 5% for each Soul you have at the time of application.

With this passive unlocked, you can gain Spirits before entering combat, perfect for when you're up against hard hitting opponents!


When Legion Paladins damage a target, they gain Souls, but it's up to you on how to utilize them. Will you hold onto your Souls in order to deal massive amounts of damage but at the cost of damage mitigation, or will you turn them into Spirits that can be used to support your allies and reduce your incoming damage? Don't forget, Legion Paladin can only be obtained by purchasing the Legion Armor T-shirt and Paladin Armor T-shirt while supplies last, so be sure to check them out on!
