Gamepedia and Fandom have joined forces and our combined teams would like to encourage all Diablo fans to unite and work together as well. To achieve this, this wiki will be archived in favor of the Fandom Diablo community November 1st.Head to the community portal if you have questions or concerns before then.
Holy Shield is one of the Paladin's most useful skills. It starts out modestly, but quickly provides a massive increase in both defense and blocking. No Paladin should ever (unless of course they do not use a shield) be without this skill in their arsenal. The extra points towards block makes it much easier for the Paladin to achieve the coveted 75% chance to block (which is max), something most other character must invest heavily in Dexterity to achieve.
To a Paladin, the shield is a symbol of his faith. Particularly devout Paladins can channel their faith into their shields, bolstering its defensive value with holy energy. The purer his faith, the greater his defense.
