[RPG] Do Paladins add their Proficiency bonus to their Spell Save DC


The basic formula in D&D Next for Spell Save DC is 8 + Magic Modifier + Proficiency.

However, the Spell Casting feature Paladins gain at level 2 says:

Magic Ability

Charisma is your magic ability for your paladin spells. The DC to resist one of your spells equals 8 + your Charisma modifier.

Do I get to add my proficiency bonus to this (like everything else)?

Spellcasting Bonus. If you present your holy symbol when you cast a spell, you can add your proficiency bonus to the spell’s saving throw DC. To present your holy symbol, you need to hold it, wear it visibly, or bear it emblazoned on your shield.
