Paladin is the best PvM class imo. Everyone knows what a hammerdin is. But almost any of his mainstream builds is very strong (smiter, tesla, zealer).
paladins can pretty much solo the game halfnaked. I want to bash paladins some more but this thread has managed not to so I won't.
Also all the really viable builds for being able to do hell solo with bad gear have been names.
