Paladin has numerous builds that can tackle endgame content. Unholy caster probably the best all-rounder without needing much gear, and there is a guide in the forum.


Thanks a lot riddyl!!

The guide is from the first sigma patch, 1.0. The skill tree has changed since then.

It was a little slow in the beginning even with 20 ms, so i respecced to rapture and hoplites and the build took off, i don't recommend doing this if its your league starter as it lacks damage. After i got access to divine apparition i was basically hermes, insane ms plus access to warp strike and tp, i farmed all my xp in elite zones since farming xp the normal way takes hours and is a waste of time, elite zones can do it in 15 min.

After act 3 hell i got 40 ms boots i respecced back to the original build and it carried me to 120 without issues, after that i respecced to melee.

I don't think you can find a faster league starter build than this, this is even faster than barb if you go rapture until hell. This is my go to build for league starters now, saves a bunch of time.

I didn't stop at any point not even act 5 normal to farm ac, i just went for hell immediately which could have been a mistake. I wanted to see how fast i could get to hell act 5 and it didn't disappoint. Next season i'm probably not using rapture, once you get tp and warp strike it's really unnecessary.

How does it fare though with only 1 point in Plague? It does get a pretty neat boost with base levels after all. When I tried out this build I killed almost everything one-shot in normal and some parts of nightmare with the poison damage alone despite not using Grim Fang as a weapon.
