Choosing the right Paladin Engravings in Lost Ark is essential to maintaining peak performance. If you want to make sure you are performing your best in your Chaos Dungeons, Guardian Raids, and everywhere else, you want to make sure you get these right.

In this short guide we walk through both the mandatory and the optional suggested engravings for the Paladin class and why you should choose them.

Mandatory Paladin Engravings

The Awakening engraving allows for more usages and more frequent usage. It also fills up the Identity Gauge very quickly so that you can use the Blessed Aura more often in Party content. Blessed Aura is also a no brainer as you will now heal when using the Identity Skill.
