View Full Version : Paladin THF Pally Buld

I really like my centered kensai 12/6/2 build but I was thinking of try a pally thf build. Are there any good ones out there?

Does no one have a decent pally build or opinions on the matter?

"Good" is relative: the main problem with mostly-pally builds is that higher pally lvls don't add as much to your DPS as, say, fighter does; while the extra survivability from more pally lvls pales in comparison to what a good battlecleric like the Radiant Titan can do.

Still, have a look at my Sacred Defender and Knight of the Holy Stick threads for a few examples of pally builds.

Outside of doing a 10 paladin/8 fighter/2 monk I don't think your going to find anything that comes close to having great DPS with a paladin icon next to your name.

I've tried a bunch of different builds, and they just don't stack up to the other melee classes. Zeal is awesome at 14, but outside of that there isn't really anything worthwhile going that high in Paladin for. Not to mention the Paladin trees are pretty lackluster and could really use a buff/third PrE. Here are two that I tried - https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/425829-U19-Battle-Crazed-Paladin and https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/424863-Jadokis-Stekren-10-Paladin-8-Fighter-2-Monk

The Pyrene is also still a good alternative.
