You can never break those immunities. You have to use Purify

Why? I saw one folk killing with thornfield immunes at uber. :bounce:

Immunity on regular enemies is no longer a thing in this game, it was replaced with absorb. Immune enemies are either unkillable (Penitents in Xazax fight), or require something else to kill, like using purify on Assur.

no way, guy could clear uber immunes( i'm not talking about reg. immunes or some minions spawned in uber area) with just thornfield. bosses could he kill one hit either.

I hit level 120 on SP now. All self found because its my first sigma char. Since I only got 2 set pieces, i'm still with early game gear. Did all ubers 115, only died 3 times. So the build works. As soon as I get full set I will try new 120 areas, since they are hard with my current gear.

Need help with understanding mana on attack with the Paladin's attack spells Lemures and Blood Thorns. It doesn't seem to work even though it's an "attack" with a melee weapon. Is this intended?

It does work and you do get mana on melee attack. If you're attacking a boss type enemy then you need %attack rating because Ignore Target Defence from your passive does not work against bosses which means everytime you do not successfully land a hit on the boss, you won't get mana/life on attack.

Very soild build, I used to be Lemurs-only fun, but blood thorns are way to go imo! Since I found the set before Sigma 1.2, and before buffs it got (I have Malthael wrath with only 17% fire/cold and +3 pala skill). I switched it to

combo, with 3 set pieces (helm, armour and belt which gives me both procs ) still being used, and it feels better a bit, even when my HP pool drops from 17k to 14,5k.
