    I have a fun build idea. A Paladin that sacrifices the chance at an easy life. He goes out to rid, and redeem the undead of this land. Obviously PVM, and twinked. I still have yet to make my mf sorc again...ugh. Maybe next time I stop playing d2 I'll save my items somewhere rather than deleting them.

    Skill layout:

    20 Sacrifice
    20 Holy Bolt
    20 Fist of the Heavens
    1 Holy Shield
    1 Salvation
    10 Fanatacism
    10 Redemption
    1 point in all pre-requisites

    Gear:

    Weapon: The Redeemer (duh)
    Shield: Hoz (duh)
    Weapon swap: 'Spirit' FoH stick (most likely just a regular Spirit, finding a +1, 2, or 3 FoH scepter will prove annoying)
    Shield swap: 'Spirit' [email protected] paladin shield
    Helm: Top choice: CoA, Second: Gaze (old school! I miss when everyone online was wearing one)
    Amulet: Seraphs Hymn, or Blood amulet
    Ring: Ravenfrost
    Ring: Blood Ring
    Gloves: Frostburn? LoH?
    Boots: Blood boots with resistances (hopefully)
    Belt: Blood belt with life/fhr (hopefully)
    Body: Tyrael's Might (lol) Realistically an upped Guardian Angel

    Mercenary:

    I like the idea of using a Barbarian from Act 5, but if I start having AR issues I'll have to swap to a Blessed Aim mercenary.

    I've always wanted to use FoH in PVM, blasting away undead and smacking demons and anything else to death with Sacrifice. It seems like it could work. And by work I don't mean it in the untwinked sense where you were able to kill that run-of-the-mill super-unique monster after 30 minutes of hard work. I'm not looking for a build that'll quickly and easily run bosses or areas, just one that will be able to handle itself pretty well in all areas of hell.

    So, what do you guys think?

    FoH with max holy bolt is great in undead areas like AT or mausoleum (or anywhere in A2) and for enemies like pindle. The holy bolts coming out of the FoH will hit the target if it is moving, so it is actually very important for high dps against single targets (undead).

    fanat + melee skill should work fine for the rest

    I made a FoHer for Pindle running and a fully synergiesed level 29 FoH was only doing about 2800 Lightning damage and 2000 Magic damage. Even with a maxed Conviction going it was still not as good as I'd hoped. And the 1 second casting delay is a pain

    Spirit can't be made in scepters, as it is sword/shield only. 25/-25 with facets in 3FoH/3conviction (and 3HS for a truly priceless item) would be my choice, although I don't have the base and not even 5 perfect lightning facets....

    Time-travel hax :D

    But why doesn't chance to cast add up to 400%? I know it's capped at 100%, but I thought it was still displayed as higher?

    ATMA shows it correctly I think, too lazy to open it ingame.
    GoMule messes up on that part, it even changes the skill when "adding" the facets.

    Best would be adding the skill level ^^
