Hi all, I started my first single player character a few days ago as a zealot paladin. I tried to play as untwinked as possible (also there is no other way to twink since I only have one character). I finished normal last night but NM is killing me, mainly because of my piss-poor damage output. My current gears are Helm: rare great helm, +15 resis to fire/poison/lightning, -25% poison weapon: Rixots's keen (pretty pathetic huh...) or Trancred's crowbill shield: steelclash armor: rare breast plate, +20 light/cold resist, +17 FHR, amy: +11 cold resis glove: bloodfist boots: rare greaves, +20 lightning reis, half freeze belt: rare heav belt, +23 lightning resis rings: rare, provide +20 cold/light/poison resis in total charms: mainly resis and FHR I also obtained the following runes so far: amn el eld eth ith nef ort ral tal thul tir My current character lvl is ~40. hp is 550. skills are: 15 fanaticism 5 sacrifice 5 zeal 1 holy shield So what are you guys' suggestion? Should I keep running Baal or Meph in normal until I get some decent unique weapon? Should I make a runeword? BTW I play players 8 setting. THank you.
