    2 person party, who should I bring?

    I'm going to make a Strafe+Valkyrie+Lightning Fury+Charged Strike Amazon. Using my newlyfound Windforce *Boast*. My friend is going to make a new character too, a Paladin. Should he be Fanatic Zealot, or something else? It seems that Concentration Aura is good for strafe, but he don't want to make a HammerDin. Do you think that a Fanatic Zealot the best for this party? Or do you have some other build you'd like? (Preferably a Paladin for the Aura.) I have many Set and Unique Items, but few runes. (I'm afraid of doing the Hellforge Quest, because I suspect the game will give me the lowest runes :p)

    you should tell him to buckle down and make a hammerdin, hes going to end up doing so anyways, might as well be with a friend benifitting both people.

    Tell him to make a Zealot or a Defiant Paladin. Some form of a tank will work wonders while you're strafing.

    I agree. An Iron Barb would be great. Throw in a Might & Holy Freeze Merc and you would be unstoppable.

    So you guys think that a Barbarian to tank is better than a Paladin to boost my damage?
    Our Mercenaries will probably be one Might and one Holy Freeze/Defiance.

    Your friend should use concentration as you do not get as much out of fanatacism as the pally...but fanatacism is still a great option!!!

    well, spear is still faster then a polearm i guess, but the damage output is too low if you ask me... i might be ok if your going to play MP games with him and get a might merc (might, fanat etc) but i choose for a polearm type cause they have bigger damage...

    ow but dont worry, i have put 1 point into spear mastery so i could test the ariocs, i kinda liked your idea ;)

    well all i need to do is trade for an arreats and maybe a maras ammy, then i have all the items i could need, even about 3x 4xx damage rare spears with lvl 4x requirements norm baal= dead

    once ive done ill send him to you so you can check him out, tho i doubt hell be as effective as yours unless i can pump his leech enough to keep him alive ;D

    p.s i found a unique tiara and unique silver edge axe last night, the res on the tiara is 60% to all, is this a good item?

    just forgot, i really liek the stats on the unique war pike too, stell pilar i believe

    with a base speed of -20, 25 ias Crushing blow and high max damage it looks very promising too... but im kinda leaning towards a great poleaxe runeword or a tombreaver...

    Anyone who wants to trade my 1.07 eth zerker axe BotD for a eth great poleaxe Botd :teeth:

    edit: the tiara is pretty sweet, and about the arreats, maybe i got one spare ;) let me check tonight

    good luck with yours!

    with the war pike you could hit 4 hits per ww with a 15 ias jewel, leaving room for a bit of ed, you should be on the lookout, if i find one ( i wish) ill pm you.

    Just trying to correct your mistake i think you have made. A steel pillar can never hit 4 frames. It can only hit 8 frames as it will require 47 ias to hit the 6 and 79 for 4 frames. Steel pillar only have 25 ias and whirlwind is based on weapon ias only. Not to mention warpike are base speed 20 instead of -20. Big differences there. If i make any mistake, tell me about it.

    "2 person party, what should I bring?"

    well this depends, are you gonna be drinking alchahol, if so then you should take some spirits and soda, but not too much..

    hope my advice helped.... LOL
