    Help me choose a Pally type

    What paladin can do the most non elemental damage, just to many immunes in hell, best for soloing. I really despise hammerdins because i feel they need to be severely nerfed

    I want to be the tank of the group and not have to have excellent gear

    What build best fits this?

    Thanks

    I'm fond of zealots - check Cyrus' build for melee Zealot - it throws respectable heat, and with Holy Shield, its no slouch in the defense department as well! You can go with items you find, for the most part, and by the time you hit Hell, you're more or less ready for it, and Holy Shield is such a boost to defense, if you can get a high blocking Ancient's Pledge, youre not a bad tank at all either! Give it a shot - they're great fun! Nothing beats swinging faster than the Roadrunner on uppers!

    Zealots are best melee solo'ing [argueably] but most agree the zealot is the best solo melee paladin.

    You are kidding right? In 1.10, they are one of the strongest builds. With Synergies they can get down right nasty Magic Damage (viturtually no immunes to it).

    Look at the hammer guides and how much damage a fully synergized hammerdin can do.

    Um read what he is saying. He is saying they NEED TO BE NERFED. Not that they WERE NERFED in the patch.

    hm, imho the best with not the best gear is an avenger (vengeance/conviction). You can easily solo everything (except pindle without cold merc), if you get enough resists.

    There is a guide somewhere.
    Roughly:
    1 vengeance (low mana cost)
    20 conviction
    20 fire resist
    20 light resist
    20 cold resist
    1+ in holy shield
    (the resist auras give 10% added elemental damage each and +1 max resist per 2points)

    or if using guardin angel (for 95 resist all):
    1 vengeance (low mana cost)
    20 conviction
    10 fire resist
    10 light resist
    10 cold resist
    1+ in holy shield

    an avenger does about x10 elemental damge (from base weapon damage)

    if your looking to have fun with a pally with low equipment cost, and your dying for something new, i'd suggest a ranger. get a decent bow and your set. PVP can be hard to learn, but well worth when you hear the cursing of the bowamazon you just slaughtered.
