Unholy Caster Paladin


Image

With the recent buff to paladin’s Warlock tree, Unholy Caster is now a very viable build, capable of soloing 95% of ubers untwinked. Unholy Caster fries his enemies with lightning and banishes them back to the Burning Hells with magic sentries. Having both a shotgun (Mind Flay) and a turret (Slayer) in his toolkit, he can quickly adapt to any situation to come out on top. Unholy Caster is easy to build and stays versatile all the way to late game.

ubers


This section covers tips and relevant info to clear ubers with this build. I rate the ubers based on how difficult they are for this build as a fresh, untwinked character (ie. completing them as soon as they're available), not how they’re rated in the docs. I've put both the names of the quests and names of the bosses for easy search.

Ubers with the Image icon have trophies that are useful for us. While not necessary, the bonus is very nice so I recommend farming them if you have time.

I played this char at the start of the ladder, can you tell me, is it even worth to get 4 beams to mindflay? It seems like it still has a next hit delay.
Nice guide btw!

Yeah it's worth it. The extra beams do add damage when they hit. This is very visible against beefy targets: the difference in dps between 1-2 beams and 4 beams is big. Not to mention that more beams makes farming a lot faster.

Fixed typos. Improved readability. Improved merc descriptions.

What about Imperius set? Is it any good at mid game?

Unfortunately, the set is garbage. It hasn't been updated to fit the new tree yet. You get a lot more pierce, spell damage and almost the same amount of +skills from crafts.

A small hint on the Crafted Weapon part:

Paladin Blunt and Sceptres:
-max + Paladin skill is now 4 down from 5
-max innate single pierce: 15
-Sockets: 3(Paladin) 6(War Scepter)
-max innate single sd%: 50(Paladin) 40 (Scepter)
-max innate EF: 50

Crsytal Swords:
-max all skill is now 4 up from 3.
-max innate single pierce: 20
-Sockets 6
-max innate single sd%: 40
-max innate EF:100
-less phys dam affixes

So Crystal Swords seems to be far superior for crafting a good one handed caster weapon, especially for oskills that only roll on non weapon items.
Have not tested much though….

just to point out(and correct me if i am wrong) but lightning spell dmg is not an affix that will roll on crafted boots. i'm also pretty sure EF cannot be rolled onto boots so i'm pretty sure you can't get 100+

Boots don't innately roll EF nor spell damage, but with eerie (60 EF a pop) craft + bless you can get a maximum of 120 EF.
You're right about spell damage though. I switched from ornate to eerie for boots but didn't remove that part. Thanks.
