    I'm currently using:
    -> ZEAL (lv. 20) = it's really useful! both 1vs1 or 1vsmany fights
    -> MIGHT ( lv. 5) = damage is important i think

    -> HEALTH (lv. 3....sadly) = ****ing waste of SP
    -> SHield bash (lv. 7....regretfully) = ****ing useless


    Anybody wanna add suggestion? Im lv 35 Paladin, LOD patch 1.10

    I've made a few different kinds of paladins, and first I want to tell you of the utility skills. 1-pt wonders, essentially.

    Holy Shield - Huge DEF, Chance to Block boost. A must have for any paladin who is using a shield (which most do). I would suggest a handful of points into this.

    Vigor - Makes running anywhere way faster.

    Charge - Helpful for the same reason, except it can't be used in town, costs mana, but is way faster.

    Cleansing - Heals the amount that prayer does, but costs NO mana, and reduces poison and curse duration. This skill is fantastic for in between battles.

    Meditation - heals like prayer as well, and CRAZY mana regen.

    Smite - Believe it or not, this can be useful for stunning tougher enemies while your mercenary kills them. Always hits, too, so when combined with Crushing Blow, this is a very effective boss killer.

    Vengeance - Useful for physical immunes that you will run into soon enough, and hell is littered with them. Combine with 1+ conviction for huge dmg boost.


    Okay, I'll leave those for now, and suggest a few decent builds.

    Tesladin - Uses holy shock aura with synergies and zeal. Huge dmg. Could try using a weaker Vengeance/Conviction switch for lightning immunes.

    Frosty - A bit safer, but slower equivalent of the tesladin. Holy freeze and zeal. Get a fast weapon (flail is great) and try to get crushing blow to help with kill speed. Holy freeze slows enemies more than 50% at higher levels, so it really is incredible.

    Fanazealot - Use zeal and fanaticism.Fanat makes you attack faster, hit harder, and more accurately. the only downfall is that you only do physical dmg, and your dmg is entirely dependent on your weapon, unlike the other too.

    I hope this can help you get a bit further and see what you like.

    REDEMTION and holy shield is the mandatory skills for any pvm paladin, any build!
    Redemtion is a one point wonder and holy shield you'll need to max as it saves point dexterity points to reach max block and gives a nice defensive boost.
