Is it too late for this pally?

I'm pretty new to the whole pally scene. I started a pally on east non-ladder sftcore about a week ago. It right now is at lvl 68 with foh skills. Maxed conviction, foh, and holy shield, with about lvl 35 skills with decently good gear (um'ed templat coat, um'ed shako, 2x um'd z190 zaks, perf maras, dracs, 40-15 b-star, and some good foh sceptor that i can't recall). Still, i feel a need to incorpurate smite into the combination of attacks as well. Is it too late? Should i start a new pally with foh, smite, and charge?

Once again, I've been playing d2 for a bit now, but this is my first attempt at a palladin.
 
it's too late. You should not have maxed conviction you wasted about 10 points. You won't have enough points to max another attack and aura for it.

Hows this?

:scratch: Would This be Ok?

max holy shield
max foh
max smite
10 conviction
10 fanat
10 charge

I'm going for a verstile dueler...an all-around decent fighter against all the charactor classes. I already have the gear and stuff to get more gear if needed. Just need some more info.undefined

1 to charge is enough. I have 1 to charge on my zealot as a pre-req for holy shield and it runs at level 8. It does more damage then my zeal does lol.

Thing is, you're attempting to do too much. Don't worry about charge, and max out your fanatism, though dat becomes a pure V/T.

You need to put more into conviction. The only reason you don't max is because theres a cap at -150% for conviction. I don't think you have enough +skills to get by with 10 into it.
 
if your going to rebuild go something like this:

max hs
max smite
max fanat
max FOH
rest in conviction (get it to 25 with +skills)

I recently rebuilt my v/t and have the following skill allocation at lvl 91:

max smite
max holy shield
max fana
11 conviction
7 foh
6 holy shock

With gear on I do about 2k foh damage and have a lvl 23 conviction. I plan to put 2 more points into conviction and then split the remaining points equally into foh and holy shock.

In what order should i put the points? After i know that I'll be ready to get started.
it doesn't really matter but you can raise smite, fanat, and hs at the same time. Then work on FOH and conviction
