I would like know if it is viable and sustianable to mutliclass paladin with Sorcerer. But I am unsure if these two would mesh well together and end up becoming good or if it would just lead to a sub par character that isn’t good at anything. By viable I mean can it hold it up to other classes in combat and have the nessary utility.
I was thinking of doing a dip in wild magic sorcerer for my 6th level Paladin primarly to get shield spell. He is an oath of the crown paladin, obsesed with bring order and doing good and I am taken with the idea he suddenly is infected with chaos, tide of chaos and wild magic surge table looks like it could be great fun and interesting to role-play. As a few level dip will give a lot of spell slots that can be used for divine smite.
