The noble paladin protects you and your allies' villages from enemy attacks. Each player may only have one paladin.
The Paladin can support troops when he is sent with them to travel at 10 minutes per field. Which is good as the mainly defensive units are:
Spear fighters - Travels at 18 minutes per field
Swordsmen - Travels at 22 minutes per field
The Paladin can also be used as early farming as it can take 100 resources as haul.
