Paladin Solo Build for Neverwinter

The Complete Paladin Justicar Solo Build – Neverwinter Mod 16 Undermountain

Welcome to our Paladin Solo Guide, updated for mod 16: Undermountain and Level 80.

Since the Paladin class only has a healing and a tanking paragon path, it can be a good idea to have a loadout for soloing, which is why we have made a solo build for the Paladin as well as the Oathkeeper Healing Build and the Justicar Tanking Build.

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 get it that Paladin equipment is much like Barbarian, but not Great Sword and Sword Knot.
