Hardcore Paladin Ok. I want to make a melee paladin. I enjoyed playing them in 1.09 & want to play them in 1.10. I will stay out of the CS & Worldstone so I don't get IM'd. Now, using some of the best equipment can I make one that will not only live but be viable? I don't want to use a SS for him but do have a high defense, 4 socket rondache that will give me max blocking and over 100% resists. That will enable me to use Guardian Angel so I can get my resists up to 90-95%. That along with one of the lightning absorb items (lightsabre & etc.), dwarfstar, and a ravenfrost. Am I just wasting my time trying to build this guy? Will he wind up in hell getting swarmed under by some boss pack and getting his rear end handed to him on a platter? Maybe make a freezerdin so at least he will be fighting slow monsters. What do you folks think?
