    Hydradin.. OooOoooo

    I'm trying an old build with new 1.1 items.. so far it's working pretty good.. I Made a Vengeance paladin, but optimizing him w/ 1.1 items. Using a Dragon scale, w /a fire facet jewel, a rune master with 5 fire facets. Enigma armor. Shako w/ a fire facet jewel. Mara amulet. mage fist, bul kathos ring, a manald, infernostride. vita and elemental dmg charms. Maxed out on vengeance, Conviction, fire resist, cold resist, few in lightning resist, and a few in holy shield. I'm not really posting a strategy guide, just a new build for you guys to try out if you ever get bored w/ the cookie cutter builds. Also be happy to know what you guys think of this build.

    it's level 92 at the moment. I call it hydradin because it casts hydra all the time ^^ Decided to try one out when I found a dragon scale.

    wow nice.

    If i could afford that or have the energy to go trade, i'd make one.

    Try making a guide or something, you must know something if you're 92 hopefully... :surprise:

    It's basically just a Vegeance pally taking advantage of the dragon scale and new 1.1 items, I didn't think it was a completely new build or anything. Just a different take on an old build. I should of probably put less points in some of the synergies. Wish I had more holy shield. ^^

    Ever thought about having that dragon scale and the uni crytic sword on weapon switch? Then use your other items as your main.

    This sound really cool however I dont see how you get enough damage with hydra. Can you tell me how much damage your hydra does?

    uh my friend was going to a hydradin and stopped due to poor damage. Let me re-cap:

    Hydra is +10 off scale.

    Add in the only + skills (all or fire): Enigma +2, Shako +2, Mara's +2, Arachs +1, 2xSojs/Bk +2, Magefist +1, Anni +1, Battle Commands +1

    +12 All

    Lvl 22 Hydra: 146 - 172 damage

    ...

    Fire facets: 5/5 in scale = 20%
    Shako = 5/5
    Weapon = Special made 6 Sock phase (4xShael for 4fps zeal? + 2 5/5 Facets)
    10%

    Total = 35% more fire damage.

    Hydra = 197 - 232

    ...

    or with just 6x 5/5 Facets for total of 55%

    226- 266 dmg

    ...

    Conv and the - res can help, but how much further can you help this small damage. There is a reason my friend did not continue this build. A % of a small number is still just a small number. Dragonscale should give firemastery too.
