Paladin Tank

For centuries, the elite of the Sultansworn have served as personal bodyguards to the royal family of Ul'dah. Known as paladins, these men and women marry exquisite swordplay with stalwart shieldwork to create a style of combat uncompromising in its defense. Clad in brilliant silver armor, they charge fearlessly into battle, ever ready to lay down their lives for their liege.
To be a paladin is to protect, and those who choose to walk this path will become the iron foundation upon which the party's defense is built.

Job Gauge

Job gauges are a new user interface element introduced in Patch 4.0. Learn the unique playstyle of each job to truly shine in battle!

Oath Gauge

This symbol indicates the defensive stance Shield Oath is in effect. Shield Oath reduces damage taken while reducing damage dealt and increasing enmity.

This symbol indicates the offensive stance Sword Oath is in effect, dealing additional damage after each auto-attack.

The Oath Gauge displays the current strength of a paladin's Sword or Shield Oath. A strong oath is required to execute several select actions such as Sheltron (acquired at level 52) and Intervention (acquired at level 62), and will grow weaker upon using them.

A Sword Oath grows stronger each time an auto-attack lands, a Shield Oath stronger each time an attack is blocked.

A simplified version of the Oath Gauge was introduced in Patch 4.1. Players can enable or disable this UI at any time.
The simplified Oath Gauge cannot be displayed until players acquire the Oath Mastery trait at level 52.
