D2R Build – Blessed Hammer Paladin Build Guide

Blessed Hammer Paladin Build Introduction


Another D2R Build. This time focus on Paladin, one of the best class in the history of ARPG games. This class is the inspiration for various characters/classes in other RPG Titles. (Templar in Path of Exile for example) Let take a revisit to the most iconic class in Diablo II: Resurrected with this Blessed Hammer build. Yes, it’s the Hammerdin!

Stat


Level 40

Stats Points Notes
Strength

~80

Enough to equip your gear/ Runewords
Dexterity

~70

For Maximum block chance.
Vitality

~120

All your remaining points (After Strenght and Dexterity) should go here. This increases your Life and helps with your Survivalbility for this build.
Energy

0

Some points during early Normal may help, but after equipping some gear, try Respect and not putting any points here, as the Mana increment does not help with this build, and the return is pretty bad later on. This is the same for almost all D2R Builds

Level 99

Stats Points Notes
Strength

~130

For equipping higher tier Runewords and Armor
Dexterity

~170

To maximize your Block Chance and some Resist.
Vitality

~250

Maximizing your Life is the best investment for almost all builds. This Paladin build does not stray far from the usual path.
Energy

0

Well, you probably got enough gear to bypass the Mana recovery issue at this stage. If not, simply stack up the Mana Potion!

Recommended Runewords

Hammedin Weapon Runewords

Heart of the Oak As soon as you entered Nightmare difficulty, start farming for this Runeword. It’s the best runeword for a Paladin build.
Call to Arms Generally not synchronize with Paladin, but provides a good amount of attack speed and damage to call it a day.

Hammerdin Shield Runewords

Spirit is the best option for your Shield. Almost all D2R Builds that require a shield will try to fit Spirit to it. Aside from the +2 to All Skills, it provides several QoL stats like Defense and Damage Absorb.
Rhyme If you are poor, use this on your shield.

Best Mercenary Runewords

Insight The best runeword for your Mercenary. It solves almost all problem with a build, Mediation Aura provide a boosts to Mana Recovery, freeing you from worry on Energy and focus on your damage. The damage is also superb considering the amount of runes require. Insight’s runes are pretty reasonable when it comes to drop rate also
Fortitude This is the best runeword for your Mercenary Armor, it just makes him harder to die, and you can keep all your precious gold.

Obedience An alternative if your don’t have runes for Insight. It is generally weaker compared to Insight br>
Treachery A cheaper version for your Mercenary build
Enigma If you know, you know. The most sought Runewords in the entire Diablo II: Resurrected community. For this Paladin Build, Enigma simply provides a way to travel faster between farming areas while keeping you safe from all the damage.

Jewels & Gems


Nothing particular here. Just use whatever you like

Charms

For Charms, general QoL stats like Mana and Life are good enough. Of course, + level to All Skills should be your preference but take your time. For end-game grinding, you will need a well-roll Hellfire’s Torch and an Annihilus.

Recommended Weapons

For your weapons, you will need to have Faster Cast Rate and + to All Skills (If you are lucky) Otherwise, just use Spirit (If you happen to have enough Runes after using it on your Shield)
Wizardspike Yes, it look strange to equip your Paladin with a Dagger, but well it’s 50% FCR!
Suicide Branch This is quite easy to find and provide a +1 to All skills with a boost to Faster Cast Rate
Spirit Still a solid choice if you don’t have runes for Heart of the Oak yet.

Gameplay and Tip

Gameplay Guide & Tips
This Paladin build is generally friendly for new players and can take you from the beginning to the end of the game. Before reaching level 18 (Unlock Bless Hammer) You will need to rely on your aura and Mercenary to survive. The Physical damage is enough to get you through Act I & Act II, but expect some difficulty before you unlock BLess Hammer. If you find it too hard using Physical Damage only, you can put some point to the early Combat skills and respec later after level 25.

After Level 30, with the help of Holy Shield and Blessed Hammer, you are practically set up to get to Hell difficulty. In Nightmare difficulty, switch your focus to farming Runes from the Countess to use Spirit and equip your Mercenary with some gears. By the end of Nightmare, you must have at least 2 Spirits (Weapons and Shields) and some decent Armor to continue.
The final part of this build is generally what to do with all that min – maxing. It’s definitely all about farming now, Bless Hammer deal Magic damage, so virtually you are golden in almost all level 85 farming areas, make sure to check out your Mercenary’s gear often as he is also your partner on the grinding fest.
