TACTICS

Before Combat The paladin casts greater magic weapon on his longspear.

During Combat The paladin reserves most of his spells and magic items for helping allies against a common foe. He uses Cleave as often as possible against grouped opponents, and Lunge and Stand Still to control the movement of multiple enemies. He uses his divine bond to give his longspear the defending, holy, keen, or speed special ability.
