Really common misconception here about sk pets. The max one at 52 will quad for 39 and the max one at 58 will quad for 46. This is honestly no joke, and puts sks ahead of paladins for group content dps. If youíre not finding ways to utilize your pet then youíre just being inefficient(get a reclaim energy clicky). Also you have things like sk epic that do damage over time or lifetaps as needed. Pallies are great but their spells suck for doing dmg.

For raids who cares they both arenít that great but pallies get the raid edge for sure for other reasons.
Raids all that matters tho, 5 more dps in group content isnít making or breaking , sk wonít be using their pet on raids except like vindi/aow

I assumed the OP was talking dps relative to when other knights are around. Nobody cares pally vs sk for a group tank or duo/trio. Other reasons one might shine and if you have multiple knights in a group that’s kind of strange.

The best sk pet is like 25-27dps. That’s no joke.

As others mentioned, in raids the DPS is pretty equal. Paladins can actually win out depending on weapons being used by both, given the different weapon skill caps. In groups, or solo content, Shadowknights can pull more DPS.

Yea, the max 49 to max 52 pet is an 8 level jump. getting an extra 1-1.5k hp to soak up some damage(especially HTs) comes in handy a lot in addition to the dps gain for a class that needs every bit of help it can get.

Personally if I was forming a knight trio it would be cleric/enc/SK. I'd rather have FD/snare then pally utility since that's all covered by enc/cleric anyway. But both are fun classes and the correct answer is to just have both of them.

Cleric/ench/SK probably makes the most sense. You have a redundancy system of stuns, lulls, and a FD puller with snare.

A pally maybe for a trio without a cleric. Monk/sham/pally for example.

Often playing my pally I wish I had my skís spell kit from live. Often Iím glad I have the pally instead. Why I never got the ďpally vs skĒ threads. They are both great, each slightly excelling at different things. Itís not like Chevy vs Ford when one is objectively terrible (jk).

My fave trio without a cleric 55-59 is ranger, monk, necromancer. Ranger and monk counts as a knight right .... kinda?
