    Choice of gloves my paladin (Smiter/Charger)

    Assume that my paladin needs 130ish strength to hold his Berzerker Axe, and he has about 105 right now. Dex is also important to him because he would like to have decent blocking. However, IAS is useless for him.

    Should he be using:

    IK Gloves: Decent defense, 20 strength, 20 dex, not bad.

    Bloodfists: Low defense, FHR, 40 life, 10% IAS

    Rares: 124 defense, 20% IAS, 3% life leech, +10 dex, Fire resist: 30%, Cold resist: 26%.

    My paladin is using lvl 18 Battle Orders from Call to Arms Runeword, so each vit point and life point counts for more.

    Which pair of gloves should I use?

    this is for PvM? if so go with Draculs/Soul Drainer

    PvP, blood crafted gloves are probably best. Blood Fist is decent enough though. Unless you are willing to go BM, which means Draculs is the best.

    This is for PvM by the way. And I also have Exile for Life Tap already.

    I was leaning towards Bloodfists too.

    Anymore suggestions are welcome. Thanks to those who answered.

    You can even upgrade the bloodfist if you really want to.

    FYI, IK gloves plus IK belt gives the following modifiers:

    Strength: +45
    Dexterity: +20
    Lightning Resist: +31%
    Fire Resist: +28%
    IAS: +25%
    Defense: + 206

    It's one of my favorite combos in the game.

    Another good glove is:

    Lava Gout (uniques Battle Gauntlets)
    Defense: 120-144 (Base Defense: 39-47)
    Required Level: 42
    Required Strength: **
    Durability: 38
    +150-200% Enhanced Defense
    2% Chance To Cast Level 10 Enchant On Striking (huge AR boost for Charge)
    Half Freeze Duration
    Adds 13-46 Fire Damage
    +20% Increased Attack Speed
    Fire Resist +24%

    I'd vote for upgraded bloodfists, depending on your fhr setup. If you are not using any other fhr on charms or items, bloods meet the 27%fhr break for pals nicely, with life as a bonus.
