    1. I think you can use a shield.
    2. You say it takes ~5 hits to kill a monster, but do your attack actually land on the monsters? If not, you have too low AR. If yes, your damage is too low.
    3. I think you may want some experts on your overall build problem, as I am not an expert on pally that use holy shock/holyfreeze/ holy fire as main aura ^^a

    Five hits seems pretty reasonable to me, especially since zeal throws out around five hits per second. :shocked:

    If you want obnoxiously overpowered characters, play a hammerdin or any sorc.

    1. A Pally has to use a two-handed weapon with two hands. Doombringer is a two-handed weapon -> no shield.

    Of course I know, but that is my suggestion for general survival.

    No problem =)

    Pallies should never use two-handed weapons. The IAS breakpoints are terrible, they can't use holy sheild, and pallies have very nice blocking breakpoints. Not to mention you can hardly leech with HS, and thus have no means of defense.

    New Paladin 4 U: Pure Zealot

    20 pts Sacrifice
    20 pts Zeal
    20 pts Fanaticism
    20 pts Holy Shield

    Very easy build to master. Any extra skill points go into Defiance or whatever skill you choose. Find a decent shield and a fast weapon. This build will live longer, have better defense, survive in Hell and be generally more fun to play than your half-assed auradin.

    But it won't be able to kill Physical Imuuns and be very vulnerable to Iron Maiden.

    indeed, the only reason i pally would use HS is if they are making a dreamadin, otherwise i suggest just lookin at a zeal build as there are some great ones out theree


    for a physical immune, he can just make a game and find a sorc to help him there arent THAT many

    I never worry about only doing physical or magic damage, because there are so few immunes. Arcane sanc is really the only place you can't run away from physical immunes, and that's why they made b-stars.

    He explicitaly said he wanted to kill monsters, so calling in others to do the killing for you...?

    He might as well get rushed through hell, that goes even faster :rolleyes:

    Meh, I dislike Melee Chars solely because of Physical Imuuns and Iron Maiden, if I need to adjust a build to fit the picture everytime, I'd rather not bother with it at all.

    also 1pt in salvation and resist lighning is enaugh, you should use fanaticism as your main aura. For zealers it looks somewhat like this: 20 Zeal 20 Sacrifice 20 20 Fanaticism, holy shield enaugh for max block. The rest is flexible somewhat. You could use a heavens`s light with two Shael`s, that brings you (combined with 20 fanaticism) to the last zeal ias bp meaning you hit as fast as posssible. Combine heavens`s light with a Griswold`s shield(set item, good both for block and res) with 3 pdiamonds socketed in it and you`ll solve 90% of your problems. Both items are easy attainable. :smiley:

    Baranar ? what a strange choice :grin: :

    Baranar's Star (Average 301 elemental damage)
    adds 1-200 fire damage
    adds 1-200 lightning damage
    adds 1-200 cold damage

    Better use this one :wink: :

    Gimmershred (Average 857 elemental damage)
    adds 218-483 fire damage
    adds 29-501 lightning damage
    adds 176-397 cold damage

    I've edited and added the average damage, so you can see the difference, it's pretty much self-explanatory :grin: !
