How does this character work ?
This paladin is an off-tank ( You have to be tanking for this build to work ! ) , melee DPS who uses Dual-Wield to achieve 0 recovery while using Sanguine Plate , coupled with other Spell-Holding items for offense and defense , you will have fair amount of abilities considering you play paladin , meanwhile keeping the character very low maintenance , it does 3 types of damage : Slash/Corrode/Fire , and turns the fight every time it receives critical hit .
Monsterlash Included @ Boeroer
This is Not solo Build !
Race - Human/Coastal Aumaua/Any
Races that have increased might , and melee related bonuses are best choice .
Culture - Living Lands , Colonist ( +2 Survival ! )
MIG 20 ( MAX )
Attribute build with Sacred Immolation in mind , Consider Starting with more PER/RES and retrain @ lvl 13 to put attributes for better use before you need max INT, this is not needed however .
Level 1 - Flames Of Devotion
Level 2 - Remember Rakhan Field
Level 3 - Zealous Focus / Lay on Hands
Level 4 - Intense Flames
Level 5 - Sworn Enemy
Level 6 - Two Weapon Style
Level 7 - Reviving Exhortation
Level 8 - Savage Attack
Level 9 - Liberating Exhortation
Level 10 - Spirit of Decay
Level 11 - Deprive the Unworthy / Healing Chain
Level 12 - Deep Faith
Level 13 - Sacred Immolation
Level 14 - Scion of Flame
Level 15 - Any
Level 16 - Any
Pick Lay on Hands and Healing Chain if party has no priest , however healing same as scrolls is not this paladins business .
Survival 11 ( +2 Sanguine Plate ) or Survival 13 Without Sanguine Plate
You can put some points into lore as well but this paladin build is not aimed at casting scrolls even if attributes are perfect for that , id rather spend my time auto attacking and tanking , and you have your own stuff to cast when encounter starts
! - Essential
Head : Maegfolc Skull
Armor : Sanguine Plate (!) + Durgan
Ring1 : Gathbin Family Signet / Ring of Overseeing (!)
Ring2 : Gwyns Band of Union
Feet : Shod-in-faith (!)
Neck : Swaddling Sheet
Hands : Gauntlets of Swift Action (!)
Belt : Looped Rope
Bittercut (!!!) + Corrosive/Fire Lash + Durgan Refined
Vent Pick + Corrosive/Fire Lash
Or use Helwax Mold for 2x Legendary Bittercut Durgan Refined Corrosive Lash
You dont need all these unique end game items only the ones marked with (!) , tho if you have those items , you can hardly put them in better use honestly , stacking Spell-Holding items is the key to ultimate power
If you are lucky like me and get Swaddling Sheet ( Cape that proc Overwhelming Wave on crit and has Recall Agony spellbind 0_o ) this character becomes really strong .
The sole armor i would swap Sanguine Plate for is Ryonas Breastplate soulbound armor from WM2 , then you kinda have to drink DAoM potion every single fight .
If you can spare Mold for double Bittercuts you will witness real power of this build .
Try it out !
