    mana issues

    I'm having some trouble with mana... I have a mana-intensive vengeance build, and I'm now regretting maxing vengeance instead of it's synergies.

    What's the best way to keep my blue orb from emptying? I'm a poor player, and new to paladins, so I'd like to know what to spend my meager resources on.. Mana steal weapons (I'm in NM and worried about NM/hell penalty), + xx to mana items/charms? I should avoid spending stat points on energy, right?

    Use a Manald Heal for now. Try and get a good rare ring with AR, resists, and hopefully dual leech (mana leech is essential, though).

    I'm not a terribly experienced player, just started playin again... can i get manalds for pgems? only item i have worth anything is tal ammy...

    also, is redemption a good skill to invest in for my build? how many points would I need to get a significant amount of mana on a switch from conviction aura? I can't find the old character charts that used to be on diabloii.net

    You should be able to buy 30-40 Manald's for a Tal Ammy.

    Re: mana issues

    With good gear, mana is not an issue even with max Vengence, but without the right gear, you can definitely have problems. You can easily approximate how much ML% you'll need, since it's just a factor of your physical damage.

    Alternatively, you can just load up on mana leech until you reach an equilibrium. There are many other mana leech sources beside your weapon (rings, amulets, helms, gloves and belts can all offer mana leech). Obviously, the maoe physical damage you do, the lower the % of ML you will need to offset your mana cost.

    Another good item for you might be the Crescent Moon amulet, which you can get with pgems too(I think). It gives 11-15% mana leech, +45 mana and even some life leech.

    Don't forget about meditation, either from yourself (1 point) or an insight merc.
