My Support Based Paladin Okay so, let me epxlain myself first... I have a friend who comes over about 4-5 times a week, and I bring my lap-top down, and he has his character saved on my other computer, and we play. He has a necromancer, and I have a few characters....But not only do I tihnk it owuld be fun, but also practical to make a REAL "support auradin". Basicly what I'm striving for is to build a character that will have enough auras to handle different types of monsters for different situations. He is pure summon, so that's a main reason I need good auras. So tell me if you think this would be pretty good... 20 Thorns : This is for letting myself actually have a chance at leveling, and to give his minions an aura when fighting tough, melee-based monsters. 20 Defiance : When you fight somthing uch as a type of skeletal mage, or beetle, or anything like that, thorns won't work, so you Might want to focus on defence, which with level 20, he would have a LOT of. 20 Salvation : I thought I would just get it to help when we do boss rushes or mini-boss searches, which we do quite a lot. 20 Conviction : I thought because he uses skeletons/mages so much, having this in places where you had monsters with stone skin could really come in handy. 1 Smite : Considering this guy is mainly support based (except for when I need to use thorns) being able to knock back a tough monster attacking me would be useful in sticky situations. 1 Charge : I need it to be able to get out of groups of monsters, because usually...If I die.........My freind will die. 20 Holy Bolt : I actually thought about this in terms of being able to heal him, and throwing the odd bolt out every now and then, but if it looked better to not get it, I'm going for 20 Redemption for the mana, which he really needs at times. Now for my stats... 100 Base STR 100 Base DEX 300 Base VIT That might seem awefully low at times, but I will never be attacking, and it is more important to be able to survive while I use thorns than to deal damage when I will never use it. As for gear.....We play on single player, I only B-Net when I'm soloing. So I can't afford anything too snazzy, maybe some sigons, isenharts etc. If I could get some help, that'd be great, thanks.
