      Hello everybody!

      Even though I am playing a ranger for the first time, there are many ideas on what to play next (well, maybe I need to level up a few pcs first, let’see).

      One of them is the Holy Disarmer, a high level paladin that can also kill enemies with one single blow of her big bad greatsword.

      Thanks to extend spell she can also better manage her spellbook, allowing her to store multiple slots with her favourite spells (who mentioned Divine Favor?).

      The aim is, therefore, to build a very high-level paladin that:

      • effectively disarms her opponent;
      • has a good AB;
      • obtains devastating critical.

      Just to point out: this build is not for roleplaying purposes, as legal good pcs are not meant to kill disarmed opponents.

      CHA and related stuff (like Divine might/shield) would have been “nice to have” (same for weapon specialisation), but room is not much and this would have come at the expense of STR, AB, dev. critical DC and damage.

      Now on with the build:
