Hello everybody,

I have never tried a Paladin and have heard that it isn't the easiest
character to play!

What skills would be the ones to go for? Hammers, vengeance or a third?

What auras?

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Thomas

Depends on what you want. As far as melee goes, I actually understood it's
one of the more powerful characters. But keep in mind melee is a very
risky route, due to some of the characters and their spells/curses you can
encounter.

If you go for a Hammerdin, you need to max Blessed Hammer and all it's
synergies. You also need the Concentrate aura, max it.

A zealadin goes for Zeal/Sacrifice (synergy), and usually the Fanaticism
aura. Vengeance is a nice backup skill for Physical Immunes.

Just type some term in Google, and you'll find plenty of guides detailing
all kinds of Paladin builds and their pros/cons.

Regards,

Patrick.

Hammerdins are so easy in 1.10, many people think they are boring.

The usual choice are hammers with Concentration, BA and Vigor, or Zeal
with Sacrifice and Fanaticism.

Not exactly. A hammerdin is considered one of the most overpowered and
easiest builds in the entire game. And a well built, well equipped zealot is
VERY near the top of the heap for melee characters.

Depends on the build. The standard melee pallies usually max Zeal,
Fanatacism, Sacrifice and Holy Shield then get at least 1 point in Vigor,
Vengeance(for physical immunes), and rest of points in either Defiance.
Hammerdins max Blessed Hammer, Vigor, Blessed Aim, Concentration, and get at
least 1 point in Holy Shield.

There are other builds though, elemental zealots, avengers, rangers...the 2
above are just the most common.

> What auras?

Fanatacism is most common primary aura for zealot, Concentration is only
primary aura for hammerdin.
