Holy Shield is a Paladin Skill in Diablo II.

DescriptionEdit

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.

General InformationEdit

One of the Paladin's most important and often-used skills, Holy Shield greatly increases a Paladin's chance to block, smite damage, and total defense (including body armor, helmets, etc.). It costs a large amount of mana and, at lower levels, the duration isn't very long; however, more points allocated in this skill will increase its duration and power.

The defense increase listed for this skill multiplies the total defense the user has, not just that of its shield.

If you swap weapons, the skill effect still remains active. Therefore, if your secondary set has better bonuses to Combat Skills and/or Holy Shield, you can activate Holy Shield with that set and then swap back to your main set with a better enhancement to your shield than you would have earned by casting the skill using your primary equipment.
