Yes having no AOE would suck. But I figure with four DPS oriented Paladins, and all their buffs, they should make short work of enemies even without AOE.
Does PC reputation effect non PC paladins? If thats the case, having a Paladin from every order may not be the best idea. Also, I have seen a single Paladin solo POTD so I cant imagine that 6 Paladins couldnt get the job done. Going ot make six paladins for POTD and see how it goes. Thanks for all the insight, probably will make your behind the lines Paladin, but I imagine two ranged Pallies being able to handle most casters.
