If Paladin were to be tweaked in terms of its abilities, I actually wouldn't want to see it become more offensively powerful.
Generally speaking, there is one trait that all Paladins across every game's interpretation seem to possess, and the world of Dragonfable is no exception: Paladins are, first and foremost, guardians and protectors of the innocent. No matter their goals- whether they uphold the law or devote themselves to destroying demons or undead constructs- this is one aspect of Paladins that is often mentioned first. It would be fitting if Paladin had more defensive abilities to fill this kind of role. Magical shields and healing abilities are at the forefront of my mind, but I would also imagine banishing, exorcising, and purifying (Almost like SoulWeaver's Purge) playing a very strong role.
On the note of healing, I just realized that all healing abilities in Dragonfable so far have been self-heals. If any Class were to have the ability to heal Guests as well as themselves (And maybe even use spells to protect Guests in other ways), I'd imagine it to be Paladin. :)
