Paladin, a jack of all trades:

The paladin is the second most popular class in diablo 2 and is able to take on anything the world of Sanctuary throws at him, with a diverse array of builds that specialize in farming, boss killing and soloing ubers. Hammerdin is by far the most popular spec for your average player, since it deals huge magic damage (One of the least resisted damage types in the game) via Blessed Hammer and boasts strong defenses no matter the player count. This holy knight always uses an aura to buff himself or deal damage directly and it is important to have the right aura active in various situations. His auras also affect his party, making him an essential part of any composition. However, it is worth noting that the paladin usually requires the Enigma runeword (Jah + Ith + Ber) to farm efficiently and is therefore a better secondary character at ladder season starts.

Stats for the paladin are always the same:
Strength, enough to equip your gear
Dexterity, enough to equip your gear and reach 75% chance to block with Holy Shield active
Vitality, the remainder
Energy, nothing
