This build was in the category Good before being archived.

This Paladin is designed for fast-pace PvE action and combines both high damage and powerful self-healing. In opposition to common Mending builds it is very economical concerning Energy. It has little to no downtime between fights and can also increase the self-healing of team mates. Both builds require Prophecies and the axe build requires Factions unless the Eviscerate variant is used (see Variations).

  • Choose either a furious weapon haft for faster Adrenaline generation or a vampiric weapon haft to increase the inflicted damage. For the Axe version, a zealous mod is necessary to spam Cyclone Axe and Triple Chop. A Zealous mod for sword is also advisable if you think of taking Life Vicariously instead of Sprint, since it reduces your energy regeneration if you maintain it during a long fight.
  • Choose the best while enchanted gear available.
  • Wing's Axe or Sskai's Sword with an Exalted Aegis) (Strength) are good weapon sets to use.


  • Cast Vigorous Spirit on yourself (and team mates with high casting/attack rate) right before your party engages the enemy.
  • After casting Vigorous Spirit simply use each Skill when it becomes charged. Always be sure to use Sever Artery before using Gash. You should chain these skills.


  • Mobs which shatter enchantments temporarily disable the self-healing, but are no serious hindrance.
  • Blindness and evasion skills do not disable the effects of Vigorous Spirit.
  • This build is unsuitable for use in areas where many enemies are immune to bleeding.
