    Is this etup good for a smite/charge pvp pally?

    Hi all!
    I'm in the middle or trading for parts for my nec smite/charge paladin. It will mostly be for pvp in a small community. All legit and nothing uber, no teleporting enigmas and 9k hammerdins.

    This is what i have in mind:

    20 Holy Shield
    20 Smite
    20 Fanatism
    20 Charge
    rest in defiance

    Shako
    Shaft
    verdungo
    highlords
    waterwalk
    2*raven (or 1 raven + ? )
    ik gloves
    Redeemer+upped HoZ will be my smite switch
    Death Cleaver+Alma negra will be my charge switch

    With charge i'll have ~90% Deadly strike which, if trigger, would deal about 9k-10k dmg. My smite dmg would be about 2k average + the dmg from redeemer.

    I'm not very rich so i wont have any combat charms, basicly some res charms, life charms and an anni.

    I'll socket most things with prubies(except shield) for more life.

    Does this look like a decent build or is there something i can improve?

    PS. dont talk about expensive runewords cuz i cant afford them. i emptied my budget when i traded for HoZ.DS

    regards

    well 1 prob is u will be hitting at 8 fps with the redeemer
    i suggest u shael it, but u still need 35 more ias to reach 6 fpa smite.
    some nice crafted blood gloves/bloodfists might help u and ias jewels in gear, but otherwise i dont know.
    if someone can point out my calculations are wrong then plz point it out :)
    but iirc then the redeemer can only reach 8 fps smite with lvl 20 fana, with shael it reaches 7 fpa, and 55 6.

    yes, you are right, i checked the tables. luckily i have 20ias from highlords so a shael in the weapon and an ias jewel in the shaft is what i need to add. I dont wanna switch ik gloves cuz the str/dex bonus gives so much life.

    thx for poiting that out!

    btw, is charge weapon speed or ias independent?

    well, 80 less life and the ias wont help me...but with bloodfists i'll reach 48% fhr...i hate to sacrifice life, but i suppose your right... a leviathan could make up for it though...

    thx!

    well if u wanna get high life on ur pala id suggest not using leviathan(it requires 174 str) the 40-50 str bonus gets u over 200 which is overkill imo.
    but if u do have the gear to boost ur str about 170-180 then i dont think it matters much, but imo shaft offers same dam reduce as well as some hp boost at the sacrifice of defense, i like shaft more, but then again i dont like building high base str chars cuz i wont have much life in the end.

    i missed the high str req on leviathan...you are absolutely right about it! the high def is nice, though an upped shaft would come kinda close and with lower str req...
