    Paladin guide writers, please read

    Since all the posts are gone, I'd like you to repost your guides, so we can make the paladin guide thread again. As far as I remember, these were the guides in it:

    Hammerdin guide -> in the Strat Compendium already
    Tesladin guide
    Avenger guide -> in the Strat Compendium already
    Max dmg Hammerdin guide
    Ranger guide -> either repost this one, or the ranger encyclopedia
    V/T guide -> in the Strat Compendium already
    Liberator guide -> in the Strat Compendium already
    Cleric guide

    I'd also like to get in there Cyrus' zealot guide, that had to be updated but never was, anyone saved that one too?

    Ragnarod, I have that one saved at home in the internet cache files and in printed version. If it's not posted here before I get there (in about 4-5 hours), I'll post it again here, or would you like it PM'd or something?

    edit: most likely I also have the rest of the missing guides, seeing that I've compiled a list that includes each and every single guide written in these forums, they're bound to be in the cache too :)

    I recall no conviction zealot guide being in the guide sticky, maybe it was posted recently and I hadn't read it yet

    Borlag, that would be of great help, please repost them here (since probably they won't fit in a PM) when you can. If you happen to have the Hammerdin Info thread stored too, that would also be nice :)

    I'm sure I have the faq guides and the zealot, not sure if I have the whole hammerdin thread that was stickied here, I know I have the first page, that's for sure.

    There was only info in the first page I think, so I don't need the whole thread, the rest of the pages were mostly asking questions about the info on the first page

    I've reposted the FAQ already, but the others would come handy

    Rag, looks like it doesn't work out afterall, my home computer's set to delete the browse history after closing the browser, including temporary internet files... :(

    I do have Cyrus' Zealot guide, Zarkano's addon to your hammerdin guide (the skill & stat point assignment post) and Cyrus' Avenger guide printed out but it would take ages to type those back, so if someone else still have them saved somewhere somehow, please post them for us all.

    If nothing else works, then I'll type them here again, will just take a bit longer that way.

    Borlag,

    I've got the Skill & Stat point assignment for Hammerdins in a txt file. Just using it to start my first Hammerdin.

    I was waiting for someone to post the Hammerdin writeup first and then I can tag it on the end but if people are happy for me to post it in a new thread then I will.

    Regards

    Ian L.

    P.S. I'll check my PC when I get home cos I've been looking at the Hammerdin one a lot, my work PC doesn't have it cached but my home one might.

    All of the Paladin guides that were recorded in the Stickies and the Compendium were very good. However, I have noticed a couple of "guides" written by novices (nothing wrong with being a novice) that were ill-prepared, lacking any real insight or guidance.

    Writing a guide if you're not willing to put in the time and effort to make it thorough and useful, is bad enough. Lack of experience will surely compound the problem. It's also worth saying that no amount of research will make up for a little experience. Be patient, hang around a couple of weeks (silently if possible), play a few Paladin characters to at least clvl80+. Then, after reading all the exisiting guides, if you still think a certain build hasn't been catalogued, go ahead and take a shot.

    If you choose to ignore this advice I will not be shy about pointing out your guide's shortcomings in very frank terms.

    Yea i agree with Any1.

    Some guides did ( not saying mine was perfect or outstanding).

    Also when writing a guide. it is not needed to list each item's mods. It takes up alot more space, and if your like me, you kinda loose interest in the guide after attempting to read all of those mods to each weapon / armor option.
    Just an idea.

    i had no idea my guide was posted in stragety compendium... i never checked . hehe..

    O yea. Can you edit guides that are posted in Stragety Compend.??
    i might have more " new " information to add about items and dueling stragetory.

    You were lucky, because your guide was posted in the Strat Compendium yesterday, just before the forum crash

    No need for you to repost it, since it's already there, if you want to update it you can post it here, and I'll send word to Elly, she's the one to update things in the Strat Compendium

    Borlag, it seems that Gohanman had a fairly recent backup of the guides, so we might only need Cyrus' Zealot guide, and Zarkano's post. It shouldn't be difficult to find someone with the Zealot guide backed up, since two people were working on an update for it, but if I can't get in touch with them I'll have to ask you for it :(

    Any1, I agree, that's why not all guides posted make it to the sticky, and/or the strat compendium
