Here are the Exact FFXIV Paladin Changes in 6.3

Among the most discussed changes ahead of the 6.3 FFXIV patch was the array of changes and additions coming to the Paladin job. During multiple Letter from the Producer Live presentations, Director and Producer Naoki Yoshida went over the rework. Now that the full patch notes are here, it offered exact details about the changes to existing skills and three new actions for the Gladiator/Paladin.

The three new actions are Bulwark, Enhanced Requiescat, and Release Iron Will. Someone could think of Release Iron Will, which a Paladin learns at level 10, as a way to release a stance manually. Bulwark comes up at level 52 and blocks attacks for 10 seconds. When you hit level 80, you learn the Enhanced Requiescat gives you Confiteor Ready.

Here are the full 6.3 changes for the Gladiator/Paladin in FFXIV.
