Use basic drainage techniques on the wall and if you can put in some pipes on the patio. Slope it correctly so water can run off the top of the wall.

Drainage pipes in areas to catch the water and drain it off the patio, you could slope the entire thing over the edge of the wall so the water falls over the wall but I would try to guide it away to prevent unwanted erosion. I'm on my phone and hate typing I'll explain more later

So your saying rather then divert the water over the wall by pitching the pavers add drainage under the patio and let it sep

can't you slope the pavers 1/4" per foot to the wall and install a drain in the pavers then route the drain pipe down and out through the wall at the bottom making sure iwater doesn't gather next to the wall?
keep in mind if you center the drain in patio at the back by the wall caps you would need the pavers to "dual slope" towards the rear of patio so that the water would flow to drain ...

slope the pavers to the centre of the patio and install a drain, can be some freezing issues depending on where you are located.
