PATCH 1.2 IS OUT!
*WORK IN PROGRESS*
*There is no Fire/Blood Thorn version yet, this is Lemures only*
Big changes with this patch, and very good ones. First, the entire build relies on Vitality to pump its damage, Energy Factor->>> Vitality Factor, exclusively for Unholy melee paladin!

The tree received two new skill and a reworked skill! Grim Presence(replaced Terror Strike) and Possession(replaced Black Sleep). Blood Thorn and Lemures both received buffs to their damage! Hymn is now called Sanguine Convenant and now gives free pierces!

Early game and mid-game gear also has alot of changes that I will update soon, stay tuned.

Early game setup updated!

Gameplay updated!
Mid game updated!

If you have any questions about what changed and what didnt, ask in the comment below or send me a private message.

Unholy melee paladin - Lemures
Build creator : Gzeno




Welcome to my guide! Unholy melee paladin - Lemure! If you were looking for an eye candy/fun melee class that is capable of completing most of the game content with pure melee engagments, this build might be worth a try!

The paladin unholy melee tree specialization is very unique, it uses spells that comes out of your melee attacks! The build does not use actual weapon damage to deal with monsters, it uses huge amounts of spell damages that can be easily increased with some of its abilities.

The goal with this guide is to provide you with the most pertinent informations about the the build, which will include :
1 - Pros and Cons with this build
2 - Core gameplay

3 - Leveling process and challenges(not updated)

4 - Gearing/Skill points through early/mid/end game

6 - Ubers (WIP)

1 - Pros and Cons


PROS :
Very fun!
Fast walking (thanks to superbeast)
Does not requires alot of skill-switch
Leveling/questing is very easy with this build
Huge health pool
High self-heal (without pots but they help alot)
Most ubers are doable as melee (that's the point)
Can farm everything/ubers! (not all bosses)


CONS :
It's a melee build, so we tank everything, which means :
Tank alot of damage
Getting used to be stunlocked
Can't take a half-second break with your screen full of mobs

Most very hard uber bosses are anti-melee jerks.

Mythal would be the right Proc, thanks for the suggestion, I'll update it soon.

Why not 1 point in scourges in mid game? You need summons to get some charms.

Ill include a skillplanner for each ubers that needs a respec/scourges.

For general gameplay, like farming, scourges arent needed.
