View Full Version : Pally build help

11-21-2014, 03:18 PM
Ok so I have been gone for 6 months so I have no idea how good the new paladin stuff is. I have always loved paladins but not so much in DDO as in the past they were pretty gimpy for EE past lvl 20 in a lot of places.

Ideally what I am HOPING for is a tank paladin with good DPS. If a tank paladin won't have higher end DPS then screw shields I will just go 2handed. Anyone got any links to good pally builds with this in mind? I have a 28 cleric I will TR and he has past lives in FVS and Cleric. Plenty of decent gear and can craft whatever I need for my guys.

Race doesn't matter much. I think Dorf might be a touch preferred but honestly any race is fine. I have all races open including BF.

The good news is pure pally is a lot stronger than it was; and S&B is better thanks to Vanguard. See my Sacred Vanguard thread.

Most of the obvious 20 paladin builds are pretty good these days.
Human 20 pally Vanguard-41/SD 20something/KOTC 10something/rest racial is good, especially in divine crusader. (sword&board)
Human 20 pally KoTC 41/SD31/rest racial & harper is also really good (LD or DC)---swf, although i bet it'd work in TWF or THF also.

Either of them are fully EE capable with decent gear (or even kinda mediocre gear).

Thanks for the responses guys.

Unbongwah a question for you and your 2 builds...1 being human and bastard sword and the other being dorf and warhammer...

1) Why warhammer over dwarven axe? Axe will get higher dmg plus splash dmg right?

2) If you were to pick one would you prefer the dwarf or the human?
