Building Paladin So I am loving Thorns and I know it is something I want to use for my party and I. However the only downside to it is that it does not reflect ranged attacks, which means that we are vulnerable to mages, who deal some of the meanest and most annoying damage. That's why I'm thinking of making my secondary aura Salvation. At first it seems like a great idea, Thorns can easily kill off annoying hordes of weaklings, and severely weaken heavy hitters. Then Salvation will keep my party from worrying about elemental resistances and we could take down mage bosses without worrying about getting nearly instakilled. The only downside to this, is that Salvation is required level 30, and I may be overestimating it's usefulness. So would Salvation really be worth it, or should I focus on weaker, but easier to level up defensive auras such as Prayer or Defiance?
