In Diablo 2, the Paladin is a strong class for fighting against monsters and especially Bosses. Some paladin builds such as the Hammerdin are powerful in Player Versus Player battles as well. Paladins are also great supporters of any party as they can use their Auras to enchant their allies.
Popular Paladin Builds
- Auradin: This build utilizes mostly his offensive Auras in order to deal damage to its opponents. Although there are several types of Auradins, usually they don’t fight on the front line.
- FoH: This name is an abbreviation of the build’s main skill, the Fist of the Heavens. It’s much more effective in PvP fights rather than fighting versus monsters. Also, a FoHer uses Conviction in order to maximize the Fists of Heaven potential. The FoH is also known as the Fistadin.
- Hammerdin: It’s probably the most-played character build in Diablo 2. This is because a well-equipped Hammerdin can deal massive amounts of damage using Blessed Hammer in both PvE and PvP duels. In fact, it’s one of the top builds for dueling. The perfect items for a Hammerdin are quite expensive though, due to the popularity of the build.
- Smiter: Its main skill is Smite which can stun the enemy it hits. Further, a Smiter uses Crushing Blow in order to slay easily Act Bosses. Unique monsters and even Uber Bosses.
