Best Diablo 2 Paladin Class Build in Ladder Season 3


Wise Member
Mar 16, 2022
The Paladin is a solid build for players looking to fight from the rear or who want to deal tons of radial and damage with high mobility and a fast-paced playstyle. When accompanied by the Fist of The Heavens build, it becomes a powerful class ideal for wiping out tons of enemies at once and raining constant damage on your enemies.
It does have some flaws, however, with the main one being that the class has a complicated set of skilled mechanics and a repetitive skill set. It also requires high APM to use, but there are way around these flaws which we'll discuss below.

The build we've chosen for the Paladin is the Fist of Heaven's Paladin, which focuses mainly on range casting and single-player sniping/farming. It does benefit from the Sunder Charms mechanism in the game, but thanks to its Holy Bolt ability it deals tons of magic damage, and any enemies that are immune to magic will likely be damaged either way because of the Holy attribute the attack has.
With that said, let's take a look at the gear, socket items, and skills you'll need to use when setting up the Fist of the heavens Paladin build in D2R Ladder Season 3.
