Hypno Blast

Information tentative. Info taken directly from R6 Change Notes.
Old information crossed out rather than removed. Could someone with experience with Pallys please double check this?

Required Level
24
Prerequisites
Sacrifice (1), Zeal (12), Vengeance (18)
Difference from the LoD version
Also deals Poison Damage which lasts longer than the conversion length.
Notes
The old "Conversion + Thorns" bug no longer exists. It's safe to use Conversion Hypno Blast with an aura.
Pros
Very helpful to deal with too many monsters. Converted monsters have very little life when the conversion is expired (if alive), and will automatically die by the poison damage.
Cons
Can't convert bosses and champions. Not party Friendly.

Free Oskills that benefit from Holy Shield and Bow Skills

  • Paladins can gain these oskills by cubing Damage Augmenter.
  • From R6 onwards these Oskills are no longer available they are now part of the general passive portion of the damage augmenter and thus no longer need to be activated.

Holy Parry

Required Level
1
Prerequisites
none, but needs Holy Shield (24) to work
Notes
You need to equip a 2H weapon to cast this skill. This skill overwrites and is overwritten by Holy Shield and Holy Aim. The defensive bonus of your Holy Shield is reflected to this skill, and the skill level of this skill does nothing.
Pros
Would be a must for shieldless Paladins. Paladin's Dodge shows no animation and is very fast.
Cons
slvl12-89-1617-2223-2829+
Defense%150% of your Holy Shield
Chance To Dodge20
Duration (seconds)100% of your Holy Shield
Mana Cost35
  • +1% Chance To Dodge per Base Point in Holy Shield
  • +1% Damage Reduction per Base Point in Holy Shield
  • Disables blocking while active.
    (This skill has a better defense than Holy Shield, and doesn't expire automatically when you switch to a shield. So if this skill doesn't disable blocking, players will abuse it with shields. )

Holy Aim

Required Level
1
Prerequisites
none, but needs at least one of Arrow of Confession (1), Holy Shield (24) or Sacred Piercer (30) to work
Notes
You need to equip a Bow or Crossbow to cast this skill. This skill overwrites and is overwritten by Holy Shield and Holy Parry. The defense bonus of your Holy Shield is reflected to this skill, the base points of your bow skills determine the pierce and AR bonus, and the skill level of this skill does nothing.
Pros
Pierce and AR work as a passive, and are also helpful with other bow oskills and the bows that fire exploding arrow.
Cons
