14 Lex (Flank)

Lex is a very strong flank that is best used on maps with very little high ground, due to his lack of a movement that can get him there quickly. He has extremely strong weapons that can easily kill squishier champions with ease. If you are looking for an easy champion that is very easy to get the hang of this is a great pick.

What makes Lex a good Flank:

The Talent Death Hastens is a great talent for those who love to do large amounts of damage per shot and is a great talent if you can hit all your shots. This talent changes the shots of your weapons and makes them do 680 damage every 0.7s but reduces your max ammo which allows him to deal massive amounts of damage but if you miss your shots this can be a bad talent.

The Heroism talent is a talent that allows Lex to get out of any situation easily by allowing him to slide everywhere and anywhere. This talent makes his combat slide give you CC immunity and 90% damage reduction giving Lex amazing survivability and making him really annoying and hard to kill.

The Discovery talent is a great talent for those who like to target their retribution target. This talent allows Lex to deal 25% more damage to his retribution target making it so he can easily kill any champion that is unlucky enough to be his target.

Lex’s ultimate The Law allows him to kill any champion that is below 65% health and deals 600 damage to those above 65% health. This is an extremely great ult that can easily clear out a team of grouped-up champions that have been heavily damaged.

13 Khan (Frontline)

Khan is an off-tank that has really good survivability and has a great ult and damage. This simple-to-play tank brings a lot to a team and is probably the best team player tank in paladins. This tank also can heal himself and his allies a little bit which is another great reason to pick this frontline.

What makes Khan a great Frontline:

Lian's shield allows you to turn Khan into a slight point tank. The talent allows your shield to regenerate 120% faster as well as allowing it to regenerate while it's active which basically allows you to shield an insane amount of damage.

Vortex Grip is a really great talent that gives Khan a really good CC ability. The talent gives his commander grab the ability to stun an enemy for an additional 1.4 seconds making it so you can kill a tank or healer very quickly.

Storm Of Bullets is a talent that is really great for those who have trouble hitting their shots. What this talent does is it Increases khans attack spread by 40% but also reduces his damage by 25% which will increase your damage output if you have trouble hitting your shots.

12 Viktor (Damage)

Viktor was added to the game from the beginning and has always been a powerhouse when it comes to damage. He is one of the easiest champions to play due to his amazing DPS output and a movement ability that is always usable makes him an extremely easy champion and a great damage. If you are looking for an easy champion that is also a great damage then Viktor is a good pick for you.

What makes Viktor a good damage:

The talent Burst Mode allows Viktor to do a lot more damage from afar. This talent changes his primary gun and makes it shoot a burst shot which makes him shoot 3 200 damage shots every .4 seconds as well as also giving Viktor increased range allowing him to stay farther away from the battle so he can do more damage and stay safe.

The last talent is Cardio and it gives Viktor very good survivability especially since he doesn't normally have a healing ability. This talent allows Viktor to heal 300 health per second while sprinting which is a great way to heal up and run away from enemies when low on health. 

Viktor’s ultimate Barrage is a very great ultimate that will allow you to make every enemy run away in fear. This ult allows Viktor to call down airstrikes on your enemy which deals massive damage in a large area and will easily clear off the point if done correctly.

Makoa is an amazing point-tank due to his high health, great movement, and a very strong shield. Makoa also does very good damage and even is able to hook enemies to pull them out from their cover.

This talent changes his shell shield and makes it so he places it on the ground and lasts for 2 seconds longer than normal making it so he can easily use his giant shield to push against the enemy champions.
