4/15/2022 1:46:41 PM

In Diablo 2 Resurrected, many of you are going to start as a Fist of Heaven Paladin in the first Season of Ladder, here let’s go over all details about the extremely strong FoHdin build!

Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.4 Best FoH Paladin Build for Ladder Start

FoH Paladin is one of the most popular builds in Diablo 2 Resurrected Patch 2.4 which are able to damage all undead and demon-type monsters and has only 0.4 second cooldown, the incredibly huge AOE makes him an absolute demon undead killer.

D2R 2.4 FoH Build Pros & Cons


  • Great AoE - His AOE range is pretty much the whole screen, if you target the monster that is closer to you, the holy bolts will damage everything in your screen. If your Target Monster at the edge of your screen, your holy bolts are going to hit 1.5 screens away from you his AOE range so makes him amazingly safe. Especially in an early ladder like he's got low health, no CTA, Bad resistances, and only +5 to skills or something because he does not need to face tank everything. 

  • Free Aura Slot - He does not always have to have the conviction aura on because that only boost the lightning damage to your man target. However holy bolts are the most important source of damage output, which means he can always switch between different auras for different situations. Such as Redemption for life and Mana recovery, Salvation when you need all res, Resist fire against Travincal or Baal wave 3, or Defiance against Baal wave 5. 

  • Less Gear Dependent - Since the Fist of the Heavens has 0.4 second cooldown, you could simply use dual spirits and FCR gloves to reach the breakpoint. You could stack a lot of magic to find all res or anything you want on all these slots while maintaining the killing speed at the same time.

  • Good Survivability - Keep in mind, he's a ranged character who's got Max block, Max resists over 14K defense. Free to switch auras against different kinds of enemies and different kinds of debuffs. Just about everything you need Diablo 2 runes for sale, in fact, this character is so hard to be killed.


Limited Areas - Holy bolts damage only demons and undead, the lightning damage is good but it is not efficient at all to farm those areas full of beasts, animals, and so on. And it takes forever to clean the cow level by himself.

Weaker Damage - You can use both fists of heavens and holy bolts to kill act bosses, it is not amazing but it's acceptable. Of course, Hammer is taking down act bosses way faster. 

D2R 2.4 FoH Paladin Build Guide

In the below D2R 2.4 FoH Build guide, we show you how to farm the arguably best area in the entire game that is Chaos Sanctuary with the Diablo 2 gear you may be used in the first couple of days of the ladder, and with the better gear, you can do players 5 Chaos players 8 Baal runs or even solo Ubers without Respect.


  • Strength: 156 (Enough)

  • Dexterity: 176 (Enough to max block)

  • Vitality: 257 (All rest points)


  • 20 Points to Fist of Heaven

  • 20 Points to Holy Bolt - Holy bolt healing is super useful with budget Diablo 2 items which literally makes your merc unkillable

  • 10 Points to Prayer - Synergy of Holy Bolt not for damage but for healing

  • 10 Points to Resist Fire - It will give not  only 5% passive max fire rest but also 10% max fire rest, is mainly to help your Merc to survive the inferno from Infector & Baal wave 4, and Hydra from wave 3  

  • Some Points to Holy Shield - For more defense and a longer duration

  • Some Points to Resist Lightning - For max lightning rests in case you want to make your way to Baal waves easier personally

  • Some Points to Redemption - As the main aura for Fist of Heaven drains mana like really crazy, with the Redemption aura you have like 80 or 90 life and mana after each kill which helps a lot and you don't need inside Merc anymore 

  • 1 Point to Salvation - In case your enemies have Conviction aura 

  • 1 Point to Fanaticism - It is really useful against the bosses because your Merc will proc more decrepfy

  • All rest Points to Defiance - Boost defense rating is given from holy shield

Put 20 points into the Fist of the Heaven, 20 points into Holy Bolt, and nothing else, so you will have many unused skill points here and it's already shredding Chaos. Why? Because almost all damage comes from the spreading holy bolts. Also with the holy bolt support, you can heal and kill at the same time without spamming tons of rejuvenation potions or constantly going back to town to revive your merc.

If you invest further points into Holy Shock and Conviction aura, it's going to boost your main target damage and this of course is going to help you kill those non-demon or non-undead type monsters such as bats, spiders, vipers, and visual. Holy Bolt is your best friend ever, you even can kill bosses without fully synergizing the Fist of Heave and Conviction. There are a couple of options for the left skill points here, you can pick the ones according to your playstyle.

With some advanced D2 Ladder gear like Shako, Arachnid Mes, and Hellfire Torch, you can clear players 3 or even players 5 Chaos Sanctuary pretty easily in about four minutes. We think you could have this kind of gear in the second or third week after ladder reset depending on how much time you play and of course how lucky you are. Speaking of Hellfire Torch, we are pretty sure a paladin torch is going to be really expensive because a lot of people are going to play FoHdin.

Advanced Solo Gear

You can do Ubers by yourself with just three additional pieces of gear:

  • Helm: Guillaume's Face for crashing blow 

  • Boots: Gore Riders for crushing blow and open wounds

  • Gloves: Dracul's Grasp for life tap

You can kill all six bosses including Ubers and mini Ubers with one point smite and one point fanaticism, you may need some rejuvenation potions before the 

lifetap procs, once it's on you are pretty safe.

Overall, this is a really really cool and strong build with incredible AOE, ability super tanky, max rez, max block, over 10k defense, and also a super tanky frenzy mercenary; and his decrepfy makes the fight even safer. Free aura slot compared to Hammerdin means you can always switch between different auras such as salvation, resist fire, or fanaticism while not dropping damage output, which makes him even cooler able to do ubers without respect and you don't really rely on those super expensive gear to be strong. So we believe that a FoHdin as your first or second character will make your ladder journey really smooth.
