Thanks a ton for this guide, This build and the Lorenado alternative you threw in(credit to whoever came up with that too) were a blast to experiment with. Lots of variety compared to normal UHC :thumb:

The ridiculous amount of shrines needed were frustrating to get, but once I had both setups complete this has easily become my favorite build. It's literally everything I want in a character. Good damage, good defensive/support abilities, good looks ;) , and most importantly fun. Paladin has it all tbh. Hell I wouldn't even call it a con, if anything it adds to the amount of things you get to work towards. Also even with the AOE nerfs somehow Stormcall(A very random skill to be used by a paladin in the first place, but you made it work) is still great and just overall adds to the amount of versatility in this character. Serious props! :clap:
Only downside was having to play regular UHC for early game :roll:
And maybe hit recovery :wall: :wall: :wall:

Yeah, getting all those shrines is really troublesome at first. I actually would have loved to mix in both gear specs into one set for convenience, but that really brings down the effectivity. And yes, superbeast hit recovery is cancerous. But it boosts base speed, breakpoints and spell damage. Can't have everything good out there. Again, I'm glad you're enjoying it :D

Is there any way to fix the mana issue?

I'm at the midgame section with 90% of the easy charms, but the mana problems are honestly getting frustrating while farming trying to find the endgame gear.

Even with 80% Mana Regen you just blow through all your mana in a matter of seconds :(

until you have a bigger mana pool.
2) Bump your mana regen to 120%
3) Increase mana through Energy. MO Energy into your gear if you have the space to spare.

But if somehow doing all those still don't resolve the issue, you can try to use only one source of Brimstone to lower manacost for normal play. Equip it back on during boss fights for extra damage.
