    Your skill distrubution seems a bit off. 20 sp in fanactism will only give you about 140% extra to damage which considering you have ~1500% already is a bit rubbish. If you want extra accuracy use conviction it is WWAYYYYYYYY better than blessed aim, at s.lv 20 it effectivly gives you 10 fold attack rating XD. See *LINK REMOVED! NOT ALLOWED HERE!* for more on chargers


    Take this time to read the forum rules!

    Here's the Forum Rules <<----- :rolleyes:

    Well I was thinking of other auras to use instead of fana. I was thinking Holy Freeze to slow smiters and Bowzons. But an unsynergized HF doesn't add alot of damage, is it worth it just for the slow against certain builds?

    If I were to do a charger for vs. meele and caster i'd go with this setup now seeing that I have lots of exp with maxed charge pallys:
    20 Charge
    20 Smite
    20 Might
    20 Holy Shield
    Rest of points in vigor

    That way your maxing your smite dmg which is neccessary for a ohko on most chars. Smite is needed because charge does not always knockback opponents or really even hit them. So if your charge was to fail, smite will take care of the rest or even allow you to chargelock again.

    As for Equip after thinking about it for a while here's my solution for the best possible equips:
    COA (with 2 40/15's or 2ber)
    Fort
    botd Zerker/doom zerker/grief zerker/grief pb/death zerker/beast zerker lol.
    Pheonix Vortex shield with 40+res - or any pheonix made from an elite/res pally shield with high smite dmg and good block %.
    Highlords
    Dungos or nosferatu's coil
    gores
    up'd bloodfist or rends
    raven/bk

    What I figure is that with max damage you'll still keep up a good resistance in hell and be able to ohko nearly any character in the game. Hope this helps.

    SirBettle is on the same build I was thinking about, only his skill points were not the same as I was thinking about.

    20 Charge
    20 Might
    20 Fanata
    20 Smite
    Rest in Holy Sheild

    Maybe spend one point in Zeal to for lvl'ing or what ever.

    Gear:

    CoA 2xBer
    Grief PB or BA
    Forty
    HoZ Ber'ed
    Dungos
    Ravens and Wisp/Dwarf (Something with absorb if batteling casters)
    Dracul's
    Metalgrid or Highlords

    Something too keep in stash would be:

    Dwarf star
    Angelics Combo
    T-Gods
    + Other gear with absorb.

    NOTE: Im not a expert at chargers or smiters, that is just what Im gonna try, hopefully will it work:thumbsup:

    I'm just thinking, why would you keep 20 points into might and fant for a charge build? You'd be using Might while charging b/c it gives more dmg and ias has nothing to do with charge. If you really wanted fant, get a faith merc for pvm or even a beast if you're going pvp to help out your smite ias. Also, Dracs are plainly useless in duels, use bloodfist or rends instead. Dracs are ONLY useful for ubers or characters whom have no life leech (both strictly pvm). Also remember to UP that Hoz if that's what you're going with.


    -edit

    of course put a point into zeal, didn't mention that in my post earlier, my bad.

    SirBettle: Ahh my bad, I did not know that Might helped more Charge than Fanat, like mentioned I have never tryed a charger and was hoping you was gonna reply to this thread:smiley:

    But can't that be used for a hybrid buid of charge and smite, Smite w/ Fanat on one hand and Charge w/ Might on the other? Will charge be too low synergised? But maybe the place for CtA becomes a problem:undecided:Maybe CtA made in a good pala scepter with decent dmg and other mods like +2 Vigor +2Might and using that as the Charge weapond? :scratch: I was hoping to be able to keep grief since its a good smite weapond...or maybe im just wayyyy of course and need to stop talking:laugh:

    If you really want to be a slyboots, you can do this. You can wear a Beast Zerker/Ettin Axe that way, you still maintain good charge dmg (because fant + might stacks if one is givin from a weapon). Also, you can smite really fast as well with a lvl9 fant from beast. Also, as you stated, grief would be hot either way. IDK, I've been using maxed charge since .08 but i've never really maxed the synergies that went with it. I'm really interested in making a complete charger now though.

    I wonder if you get synergy bonus's if you use a Last Wish as your weapon seenig that it gives you might aura?
