Charge[edit]

Required Level: 12
Prerequisites: Smite
Synergies: Charge receives damage bonuses from points placed in:

  • Vigor: +20% Damage Per Level
  • Might: +20% Damage Per Level

Details: A rushing attack that moves the Paladin very quickly to the target. Includes a knock back effect allowing it to be used over and over again on the same enemy, knocking them back until they die or run into an obstacle.

  • Despite the icon and location on the skill tree (after Smite) Charge does not require a shield, nor does the shield damage factor into the damage dealt if you have a weapon equipped. Charging with a big damage, two-handed weapon can be very effective.
  • Like all of the Paladin's combat skills, Charge is best used on the left click, while an aura is active on the right.
  • Charge can not be used in melee range; only from further away. Smite for the knock back, then Charge is a useful combination.
  • Charge can be used without a target by holding down the shift key. This will let your Paladin traverse long distances very quickly, though it uses up a lot of mana and leaves minions far behind.
  • Bugs with Charge can freeze the Paladin in place, or make him walk backwards (the moonwalk bug). Switching weapons or getting hit will usually snap him out of it.
  • Charge was the favorite low level PK skill in early D2 days. Beware low level Paladins with Vigor and big two-handed weapons. (Such as Bonesnap.)

Charging Speed[edit]

ChargeSpeed = BaseRunSpeed * (1 + Skill_FRW / 100 + Armor_Speed / 100) * 150%

where the terms are as above. By substituting BaseRunSpeed and multiplying it by 150%, we get:

ChargeSpeed = 9 yards/s * (1 + Skill_FRW / 100 + Armor_Speed / 100)

There is no lower limit to ChargeSpeed. It can be even negative.
