When it comes to deciding which build is the best in Diablo 2: Resurrected, there will always be a heated discussion. The range of player strengths and weaknesses makes it impossible to create a single cookie-cutter design that will work for every single person who picks up the game and plays it well.
Possessing certain abilitiesNonetheless, when veterans are asked what they believe is the best build in Diablo 2: Resurrected, the Paladin’s Blessed Hammer build receives the overwhelming majority of responses. There are S-Tier builds on top of other S-Tier builds. It is necessary to have firsthand experience with the weapon’s effectiveness against monsters in order to believe it. But you should definitely go and experience it because there is a reason why so many believers in the community rely on the Hammerdin for their healing.
The Paladin possesses a number of abilities that are widely regarded as the best skills available in the endgame for any class. Because only one aura, Concentration, can assist with Blessed Hammer while it is active, it is designated as the default aura for this purpose. It is also important to get Vigor and Blessed Aim to a level of 20, as these skills provide passive benefits to Blessed Hammer. Holy Shield is one of the best defensive skills in the game, and it provides almost everything a Paladin needs to be a physical tank in most situations.

Qualities are a collection of characteristics that describe a person
The Paladin can use the Monarchy shield in conjunction with the Diablo 2 ladder runewords when he has 156 strength. The Herald of Zakarum can be substituted for Holy Shield in an alternative build, which trades damage output for tankiness. However, Holy Shield is more than sufficient for tankiness, and the increased casting speed of Spirit is superior. Because the Paladin will be in the eye of the storm, it is critical that he achieves maximum block with dexterity. Because the equipment contains a lot of mana (it is intended for casters), energy isn’t necessary. The Paladin’s vitality allows him to function as a complete tank.
Besides providing a significant increase in the number of additional skills these items provide, they also significantly speed up castrate with some of the best Diablo 2 runewords available in the game, allowing the Hammerdin to cover the entire room with Blessed Hammers.
Attack rate and physical damage boosts are not beneficial to this build; Blessed Hammer is a spell, which explains the large amount of caster gear used on it. Before using the small charms to boost generic defense, it is recommended that you use them to increase resistances to 75%.
Defender Desert Mercenary The defensive Desert Mercenary provides an aura that slows enemies, preventing them from either escaping the Paladin’s Blessed Hammers or closing in on the Paladin while he is casting his spells.
Because this build has no physical damage output, extracting every last drop of energy from the mercenary is more important for the Paladin than it is for most other builds. When faced with a magically impervious adversary, it is up to the mercenary to pick up the slack.
In 2021, Diablo 2: Resurrected will be released on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S consoles.
