Introduction

I assume you're here because of the new and improved holy melee and you want to sink your teeth into some spicy memes right ?
Rest assured I have you covered.
Let's start of with a brief intro to the class. Personally, I find holy melee to be the most fun class to play with due to constant skill swapping and mid-combat adjustments. You also have access to a good variety of starter, mid game and end game equipment to choose from.
But enough about my personal opinion, lets move on to some actual info.

How to play

As I said earlier Holy melee Paladin requires some skill swapping to play at peak efficiency.
That being said here is your skill rotation:
- buff up with:
    •Vessel of Retribution
    •Dragonknight
    •Dragonheart
    •Rapture
- precast Solar Flare before engaging any mobs, also keep recasting every 10 seconds for the Incarnation attack rating, life leech and spell damage buff.
- same thing for the Vindicate buff but only once every 30 seconds.
- almost always engage your target/targets with Colosseum for the velocity, -phys res and -defense debuff, also a great room clearer since it hits almost every mob on the screen and knocks them back while also inflicting Plague.
- if you're facing more mobs than you can reliably hit with Divine Judgement use Retaliate, otherwise Divine Judgement all the way.
- if you're having trouble surviving also try and keep up 5 Hoplites. They are very tanky and can self heal and also plague mobs.
- dont forget about Sacred Armour, it will help a lot in the mid game boss encounters.

Stat distribution

Strength: MAX
Dexterity: 0
Vitality: 0
Energy: 0

In theory you should max Strength. The way the new Divine Judgement works is it hits like a truck on the initial melee swing. That means you want as much Flat Weapon Damage as possible and as many big multipliers for that Flat Damage. That also includes Strength, which you will be getting a lot of due to the buffed Dragonknight
That being said, if you re having trouble with the early game level challenges, Black Road Challenge in particular you can go for something like this instead:

Strength: Just enough for gear
Dexterity: 0
Vitality: Rest of points
Energy: 0

Once you finish the challenges, or should I say, once you get Blessed Life you should resspec back to full Strength.

Skill Build

-max Dragonheart, Plague and Blessed Life
-put 10 points into Colosseum for max CD reduction and as many points into points into Rapture until you get 35 velocity. You can put some extra points if you need help reaching your attack speed and hit recovery frames.
-put between 7 and 12 points into Incarnation depending on whether you need more Life Steal and Attack Rating
-put 1 point into everything else, including the spells.
-rest of the points go into Dragonknight

This will, more or less, be your skill plan for the entire game.

and some other leveling gear but it's not really necessary.

When you get to Act 3 Terror you'll want to switch to a Abjurer or a Bloodmage. (When you get to Destruction rerecruit your merc because it has better stats, don't forget to take off his gear first)
As for gearing them you'll want to pick up a piece of Rare Sacred Gloves,Boots,Body armor,Helm, Sword, Belt and Shield and craft them with Fascinating Shrines for Bloodmage or Ornate Shrines for Abjurer for as much Fire spell dmg and -Fire res and Lightning spell dmg and -Lightning res respectively.
Socket the gear with Ral Runes for Bloodmage and Ort Runes for Abjurer. MO at least half the gear with Skeleton Reanimates and all the pieces with Fire or Lightning damage. Give them a good caster amy aswell. +3/4 skills faster casting and/or -Fire or -Lighting res.

Rings: Any rare with decent stats for capping res.
Ammy: Same as rings.

If you have the gold to spare MO your gear with Skeleton Reanimates, flat Strength. Also you want to socket your weapon with either Rubies for life after kill or Amethyst's if you find that the attack rating from Solar Flare passive is not enough. That is also the case for weapon MO's.
You will use up the MO space on Rings and Ammy for missing resistances, also you want to fill your sockets with +res gems or Ko runes.
You can try either weapons and see what works for you but I would recommend the Hand of God.
Also try to pick up every Apple you see, they will get better with each Blessed Life level.

At this point you will want to start jewelcrafting. I personally recommend you craft them with a Lem rune because the flat stats scale really well with Dragonknight.
You want to get on those jewels:
    •% all attributes or % strength
    •either life or defense,
    •either FRW, IAS, FHR.
Because of Dragonknight and Rapture you will cap your frames in no time so use SpeedCalc and D2Stats to know whether you need more speed stats or not.
You can get +all stats on top of the already crafted stats which is really good. Also remember to lucky oil all your jewels for that extra tryhard points.

Another point I want to make is since we have 3+ runewords it's important to get the best basses and roll them before crafting them. We want as much flat defense off of gear as possible.
