D2R 2.4 Ladder Paladin Tier List - Best Paladin Builds For Diablo 2 Resurrected Ladder Season 1

5/4/2022 5:52:33 PM

In addition to Sorceress, Paladin Build has also become a new favorite in Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.4, especially some of them could be the most powerful slayers in Ladder Season 1 that can be used as a starter or even endgame builds. So in this D2R 2.4 Ladder Paladin Tier List, let's dive into the best Paladin Builds in this season.


Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.4 Paladin Build Tier List - Best Paladin Builds For D2R Ladder Season 1

This Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.4 Ladder Build Tier List includes the best Paladin Builds valid for both non-Ladder characters and those from Resurrected Season 1. The principle is to know how many points you need to put in the skill trees Defensive Auras, Offensive Auras, and Combat Skills in order to fully enjoy the benefits of the build. Builds are often identical and change only based on certain Diablo 2 Resurrected Ladder items available exclusively in Ladder. For some builds, equipment is more important than others. Generally speaking, your equipment will be essential to exploit the full potential of a character. 

Plus, a less powerful build doesn't mean you won't have fun, far from it. All these builds can kill Baal in Hell mode, but some builds perform better than others for certain activities or for farming.


Top 1 - Smiter Paladin (S-Tier) 

The Smiter Paladin is a character who benefits from excellent survival, in particular thanks to his lifesteal. Plus, he never misses his target, so he doesn't have to gear up like crazy to be effective. Able to solo Ubers, it's an excellent single-target build but suffers when it comes to AoEs. It also has the advantage of being able to start without needing too much equipment but will have very nice options at a very high level. Among its shortcomings, we will point out a single type of damage (physical) and very repetitive gameplay, as well as limited mobility if you do not have Teleport.

Skill Points:

Smite: 20

Resist Lightning: 20

Holy Shield: 20

Zeal: 18

Attribute Points:

Strength: Just enough for gear (+/- 150)

Dexterity: Just enough for gear (+/-150)

Vitality: Everything else

Intelligence: Nothing


Top 2 - Blessed Hammer Paladin / Hammerdin (S Tier)

This Paladin build is among the most popular builds in Diablo 2. It does good damage and is good at AoE, which makes it versatile and competitive in many aspects of the game. On the other hand, it relies heavily on its D2 items buy. You will therefore have to be ready to pay dearly to obtain the best equipment, whether during exchanges with players or in the time spent looking for the right D2 items. It will hardly encounter any monster resistant to it and will be a good choice for Magic find. Plus, it's easy to play (but hard to master). Conversely, it will be significantly worse in certain aspects of the game and is quite repetitive. Moreover, without teleportation, it is still less pleasant.

Skill Points:

Holy Shield: 20

Blessed Hammer: 20

Vigor: 20

Blessed Aim: 20

Concentration: 20

Attribute Points:

Top 3 - Fist of the Heavens Paladin / FoH Paladin (S Tier)

Here's a versatile Paladin that can focus on elites as well as areas denser in enemies. This is a build that takes full advantage of the buffs brought by patch 2.4. Its mobility is excellent and it offers a very fast game. If you feel like farming level 85 areas, this build is for you. Be careful that you will still have to be attentive to your speed of action, not to mention that it will be necessary to understand the game mechanics to get the maximum profit.

Fist of the Heavens: 20

Holy Shock: 20

Conviction: 20

Holy Bolt: 20

Attribute Points:

Strength: Enough to carry your equipment

Dexterity: Enough to reach 75% blockage, at a very high level, you can spend a few extra points

Top 4 - Zealot Paladin / Zealer (A Tier)

It's a great classic from Diablo 2. This Paladin can strike very quickly and easily survives his enemies, but in return, he does little area damage. With a bit of Slashing gear, the Paladin Zealot can kill bosses and uniques very easily, including Ubers!

It exclusively deals physical damage, and even if it doesn't do very well, it can be seen as a limitation. It is a lot of fun to play and does not require crazy equipment. Even beginner players will have fun with a Paladin Zealot, and he can farm Diablo 2 ladder runes anything. Does it have only qualities? No, because it is not a build capable of effectively farming very dense areas. Its gameplay also requires taking certain risks and you will not switch from one ability to another, so there is a rather repetitive aspect.

Skill Points:

Zeal: 20

Sacrifice: 20

Holy Shield: 20

Fanaticism: 20

Defiance: 10

Resist Cold: 10

Attribute Points:

Strength: Just enough for equipment (+/- 150)

Dexterity: Just enough for equipment (+/-150)

Vitality: Everything else

Intelligence: Nothing


Top 5 - Dual Dream Paladin (B Tier)

The goal of this Paladin is to go through all the content without making too much effort. The idea is to combine the runic word Dream in a helmet AND a shield. He is a character who rushes into the heap and inflicts a lot of physical and lightning damage simultaneously. In addition, he benefits from a Shock Saint aura that will do damage on its own. This build is fun, can farm anything and is easy to understand and master. On the other hand, you will need to find a lot of rare objects...

Skill Points:

Resist Lightning: 20

Salvation: 20

Sacrifice: 20

Zeal: 20

Conviction: 16

Attribute Points:

Strength: Enough to carry your equipment. A few extra points will increase your physical damage

Dexterity: Enough to reach the 75% chance of blocking. More high-level points will make it possible to be even more effective

Vitality: Everything else

Intelligence: Nothing


Top 6 - Holy Fire Paladin (C Tier)

The Holy Fire Paladin enchants your attacks with great fire damage. You will also do a lot of physical damage and your life will never go down very low. With patch 2.4, the damage aura around you has been buffed, which is great news for the build. It's a quick-to-play build that rushes into the fray and doesn't require a lot of equipment to get started. On the other hand, he will not be able to farm anything and will sometimes have problems with leveling, especially in Hell. In addition, enemies who throw projectiles will sometimes be fatal, not to mention that games with many players will pose much more problems.

Skill Points:

Holy Fire: 20

Resist Fire: 20

Salvation: 20

Zeal: 20

Sacrifice: 17

Attribute Points:

Strength: Enough to carry your equipment

Dexterity: Enough to reach the 75% chance of blocking. More high-level points will make it possible to be even more effective

Vitality: Everything else

Intelligence: Nothing


This is not a complete guide for each Paladin build, the idea being to quickly know the points to spend to mount this or that type of Paladin.
