    Yeah I kinda forgot that Aura of Protection scales of CHA and is pretty damn good. I thought it went off proficiency bonus. As soon as you take 6 or more Paladin levels a high CHA modificator becomes really good for them, because that ability is bonkers.
    Still 1-5 a high WIS modificator arguably brings more to the table than CHA for combat. But CHA is usually the strongest noncombat ability score, so everyone has it high in paper.

    Aura of Protection and Aura of Warding are two of my favorite class features in the entire game, they are two absolute game-changers. But yeah, you can easily dump your CHA if you don't plan to reach level 6, unless you're playing a very caster-oriented Paladin with stuff like the Blessed Warrior fighting style that gives you two cantrips. But if you aren't getting to level 6, then you're probably multiclassing, and if you're multiclassing with a Paladin you're probably becoming a Warlock, so CHA is once again one of your main stats. It's incredible how synergic the two classes are, especially the Oath of Conquest/The Undead patron combination.

    Sorc is even meaner. You can quicken one of the Sword Coast Adventurers guide melee cantrips like Green Flame Blade on your bonus action. Those are melee attacks for the purpose of Divine Smite and Improved Divine Smite.
    God I want multiclassing... There are so many stupidly strong combos I could never bring to the table, even if I wasn't the eternal DM, because they would steal all the spotlight.

    I figured. I didn't roll new characters, I just jumped in with the pre-generated ones because I was planning on starting over anyway.
