PvE/PvP Paladin Skill Build to level 34 [Final]

Generic Build for Paladin till level 34
I am starting with the right skill tree since it provides party buffs that are needed immediately.

Single sword and shield is best due to faster attack speed on the one-handed sword as well as additional block and damage reduce stats from the shield.

All Dex is my stats build. I have no idea what stats do, so I can't do a guide on it.


My rune preferences are dex (red +3) and dodge (yellow +30), but I usually buy them pre-linked aka already on the armor.

Note: a skill point was already assigned to Divine Strike at level 1 by default.

Right
-Shield Bash - level 1
---Strength of Gods - 3 Max
Right side: 4 points used - Total: 4 (meets requirement of 4 points for next tier on right side)
@ level 5 = 5 total points used

Right
---Defense Mastery - 3 Max
-Provoke - level 1 (forever)
Right side: 4 points used - Total: 8 (meets requirement of 8 points for next tier on right side)
@ level 9 = 9 total points used

Re: Paladin Skill Build

Generic Build for PvE, since PvP won't really matter till level 43 or later

Nice guide dude.

Just wondering what level are you right now? and with a pure Dex build, do you have trouble with leveling? or survive?

Also, how is the leveling after 30? Both party and solo? Personally, I prefer solo.. can you provide your insight on that?

Thanks!

Surviving just comes down to getting blue rare gear at +0 and making it +2. The greatest enchant gain are armor and shield at the lower levels. Enchanting the shield is best at higher levels since each plus adds 10 more defense on a shield whereas armor enchantments only add +5 at higher levels. When the gold builds up from not using pots due to +2 shield and armor then enchant the helm, gloves and boots.

Runes protection items aren't available from the item mall at this time so any discussion of the best rune will just cause people to break runes repeatedly attempt put the 'perfect' rune combination on equipment. So just load up on runes in the meantime while waiting for rune success booster/protection items to become available.

Thanks for the tips! I'm currently working on my SM, I will use her to farm and fund my melee character in the future.

1 Str - 1 atk/1 crit
1 Dex - 5 accuracy/5 dodge
1 Con - 30 HP unsure on hpr
1 Int - No reason to put any into this, ever.
1 Wis - 5 MP unsure of mpr

I will check on str incase it's 1.5 atk/crit but I doubt it. Easy to check since stats always scale the same per point.

I'm loving the right hand skill tree right now. I'm only 24, but my damage isn't too shabby consider I didn't touch anything on the left tree, except the default skill points on Divine Strike.

Is Divine Strike worth max out if we only go for right hand skill tree? Just for that extra damage, or does it cost too much mana at higher level and not worth it?

Re: Divine Strike

I maxed Divine Strike since it only has a 2 second cooldown and it has gotten me out of some tight places. However with Lena's attack speed buff I find that it is faster to use auto attack, however I am probably going to max spirit training and leave Divine strike at level 1 when I do my skills reset whenever I get my skill reset brew cause I will need that additional mp for armor of thorns
