    umm, dont have the time to go into detail sorry :hanky: but..

    The skill plan you listed is good, if you find the mana cost to be a problem, put points into vengeance synergies instead.

    Max block: yes

    Basically what you want from your gear is the usual meele stuff:
    HIGH phys dmg weapon with decent speed is a must, high defense, resists, dont underestimate crushing blow even for an avenger its very helpful, life leech dont work that well, try to rely on life tap instead( from exile for instance ). Deadly strike dont work with ele dmg so you dont really need to bother with that.

    Well this is whats on the top of my head, dont know if it helps you at all though i hope so :smiley:

    Vengers are slow and use alot of mana and use one hit per attack. Its like driving a slow moving tank through hell.

    Try Whateverdin. Its an elemental Zealot that does 5 hits per attack, uses 2 mana per attack. Its like driving an F-16 through hell.

    Seems you can afford it. There's a guide for it in the sticky.

    OK, I have a very good Avenger (PvM only) so I'm just gonna tell you what I'm using and why, since it is working so well.

    Weapon: eBotDz (Has it all: huge damage, stats, dual leech)
    Switch: None personally, but obviously CTA would be nice
    Helm: Perfect Gaze (big DR, dual leech; CoA better if you are rich)
    Gloves: Lava Gouts (Laying of Hands would work too, but not as fun)
    Armor: Archon Fort (extra phys damage and helps leeching a lot)
    Belt: T-God (life, strength, light dmg, max light res +10%; Dungoes or String are excellent too and I prefer them for the extra DR when battling Baal's minion's)
    Shield: HoZ (blocking, stats, resists, +skills, and socketable; for an Avenger, it is far superior to Exile)
    Boots: Upped Tearhaunch (I love vigor, but not spending points for it, also gives stats and resists; this may be my only controversial selection, but you can also use good rares, War Travs, eth Treks, Waterwalks, whatever)
    Rings: Raven (no brainer)/really good rare (wish this was BK)
    Ammy: Mara's (Highlord's would be nice for IAS, but I need the resists and +2 skills gives a nice damage boost)

    Inventory: Torch, anni, and any good combo of life, damage, resist charms, or skillers that works for you.

    Merc: Might merc with Eth Doom Polearm

    End result at level 83:
    Life: approx 2000
    DR: 20% to 35% (add 8% or 16% if you Ber the Gaze/HoZ, but I am using IAS jewels)
    Resists: 80/80/95/75 (T-God) 80/80/85/75 (Dungo/String)
    Damage: Over 7K average damage (effectively much higher due to Vengence...and I have no skillers)
