Advice for my paladin build

So I just become a paladin two days ago and I’m wondering what skills should I invest points into? What skills are bad? What weapons should I try to get?

Right now?

Use Greatsword items and don’t put points in Prayer

But soon a lot of builds will change so it will be pretty debatable

Ok thanks but what are great sword items? Also is prayer bad?

Every weapon only Paladins can equip , they’re heavier

Right now, yes.

Ok thanks for your advice
