    Help with Paladin build

    Hi all,

    I wondered if I could get some help regarding my character build.

    I currently have a lvl 52 Paladin and at the minute I'm just concentrating on levelling up on Nightmare Baal runs. I was going for a Hammerdin build but on reflection (and through playing with others online) I'm not sure if this is the most effective way to go.

    I find Hammers quite hard to use at times, especially in tight, closed off areas. They only really work in open fields and areas where you're below the enemy.

    Im wondering whether there is a more effective skill I can use, what do other people use?

    Thanks for the help in advance

    howdy ;)

    there is a Paladin forum with all sorts of useful (and not so useful) information.

    If i'm going to be playing the whole game thru as intended I'm probably use a Zeal based build.

    Thanks for your help, didn't realise there was a Paladin forum.

    I like the idea of taking out as many enemies in one go really.

    Paladin's not very good for that, as you noticed, except where Hammers are effective. Paladin's forte, generally as a class, is more as a super-tank that can deliver damage in different ways.

    Sorcs and Amazons are really the AoE specialists.

    only the maggot lair is tough for hammerdins. Hammerdins excel if equipped with enigma(runeword armor with teleport)

    Without enigma id say hell tombs rise to a higher level on the difficulty scale compared to maggot lair, those magic imune greater mummies is a pain.

    Why don't you make other build ?
    Hammerdin isn't more interesting than others, but easy to build
