Jyggalag- Holy Shock Zealot


Character Intro and Overview

When I was still playing Vanilla I always hated the fact that there were so few choices as far as builing a paladin went: the only builds that were truly "hell Proof" were the smiter and the Hammerdin. Es gave me the opportunity to try new and exiting builds AND to be able to kill Baal all by myself.

I Think I've played ES for almost three years now (Don't worry, I've been doing other things as well :) and although I've tried all kind of setups, the shockadin build proved to be most succesfull (and fun). I was amazed how incredibly fast holy shock kills on normal/nightmare: doing cow runs became my new favorite thing.

True, I've spent many (maaaaany) days collecting maple leafs and devil's foods, but even without the d-stoning or gem melding this build will still enable you to clear /players 8 hell without too much difficulty.

Thing that I still need to work on:

  • Merc gear: Although he really isn't all that bad, I still need to find better merc gear. I basically equipped him to further boost my stats (aura's) and nothing more. I haven't d-stoned any of his gear because My paladin needed all my attention (and maple leafs).
  • Tinkering: I haven't fully tinkered all my gear yet, simply because I ran out of organs... I think I need to kill more plague rats.
