Planning a Hybrid Paladin... Ok, so I'm gonna start a new Paladin, and I'm think along the lines of a hybrid. I've got a few level 85+ hybrid chars, (java/bowie, kicker/trapper, summoner/poison) so I've got the idea behind what makes a good build, and was just asking for some gear/skill recommendations, as I've only ever made one decent paladin... Here goes. Charge 20 Concentration 20 Blessed Hammer 20 Vigor 20 Rest in synergies, (Blessed aim, Might) maybe 1 in Zeal and Holy shield... Pretty much the idea is to have a big slow 2-hander war pike or maul on primary, then on switch my HotO and a shield (I don't have a HoZ, lol never found one). My gear needs will be some FCR and +mana for the hammers, and deadly strike for the charging. Lots of +skills would be decent too, as well as %DR. Resists should be fine with my caster setup on swtich, and I dont really care about resists on the charge side, it'll be fine. So gear ideas... Weapon 1: HotO Shield 1: Maybe a good pala shield (Alma Negra is my best) or my Um'ed Stormshield. Weapon 2: Dunno... um no clue really, I've got some good 2h'ers, but i think trial and error should work. Any suggestions? Armor: Upped Um'ed Vipermagi, or something else. Any more suggestions again? I've got Arkaine's and my next challenge is cubing a Ber (Go go LK) for CoH. Helm: Um'ed Shako... Andarials Visage. Dunno really what I'll need. Gloves: My options are Frostburns if i really need the mana, a 20%FCR glove (Trang's) if I need that, or maybe Soul Drainers for dual leach, or even Dracul's for the life tap awesomeness. IK? Belt: Trang's, or IK, or any of those decent melee belts (I've got all unique belts except Arachnids...) Boots: IK? somethign with 40%FRW, or Gore riders... Yeh probably that. Rings: BK and Raven? I've got all the rings except SoJ, so I'll take any suggestions. Amulet: Either my +29 Mara's or Highlords... I'm liking the Deadly strike on that so I might go with it. I'll have a CTA in the cube in my stash, (even though I hate switching it out) so that'll help with the mana... maybe I should get some more +mana items instead of Frostburns. Or +mana charms. Any ideas or build suggestions will be most accepted, escpecially if anybodys tried this build before. I'm playing 1.11 vanilla, so no crazy uber cheap runewords for me! And does anybody know what this build is called? I tried to find a guide, and one dude is calling it a SMB, as in mario... Thor works for me! I'm gonna start him this weekend. Thanks for reading.
