The Complete Paladin Oathkeeper Healing Build – Neverwinter Mod 16 Undermountain

Paladin Oathkeeper Healing Build for Neverwinter

Welcome to our Paladin Oathkeeper Healing Guide, updated for the Undermountain, mod 16. In this guide, we will give you tips and info on how to play the Paladin class.

The Paladin is one of the most popular of classic D&D classes, in addition to being a holy warrior, they’re also protectors and healers, capable of healing and shielding their allies from harm. It is recommended that you also use one loadout for a Justicar Tanking build so that you can fill both roles. You can also check out our Paladin solo build here.

The purpose of our class guides is not just to show you a build that you can copy and use on your character, but to show you a base build and teach you the mechanics and stats of the game, so you can understand and play your class to its fullest capabilities. Try different gear, feats, and powers and learn to tailor your own build for your playstyle. See our guide to making your own build for more info.

    I have an Ebony Stained Hide but it says it’s not usable by paladin, was this changed recently?

    Hi, thanks for taking the time to write such a straight forward guide 🙂
    I was wondering why you chose CHA instead of Dex (for crit sev) or Con (AP gain)?
