    PvP FoHer Help?

    Hey everyone, im about to start a pvp foher and just need some help before i start. Take a look and tell me what you think. btw if theres a guide out there could you direct me to it.

    Skills
    Max FoH (obviously)
    Max Holy Shock
    Max Conviction
    Max Holy shield
    Should i include holy freeze or not?

    Stats
    Dex for max block
    Str for equipment
    Energy - what do i do here, should i invest in it or use mana charms? whats the mana consumption of a FoHer like?
    Vit rest

    Equipment
    Umed Shako
    Umed Hoz
    Umed G angel
    Maras ammy
    undecided about weapon. HotO or hand of blessed light? any other good foh weapons?
    Boots - Silkweaves for mana? any suggestions
    Gloves - Magefist, frostys or other?
    Ring- one raven, what other ring? (bear in mind soj and bk are hard to get)

    I have an almost endless supply of 20life scs and a few combat gcs.
    What do you think. any suggestions?

    I'm really new to this all....and i'm making one too!

    I can't help too much, but I can point out some minor mistakes and such.

    DON'T max conviction. the max you can get is -150% resists..so you want to have a lvl 25 conviction WITH your + skill items on,. You should not need to max it.

    I can use common sense to say DO NOT PUMP ENERGY. FoH is a timed spell, so you should definately have no problem with mana. If you do, thats what blue pots are for. Your items will probably give you a better boost anyways.

    That's about all I can safely suggest for now.

    Good luck! :flip:

    -No energy
    -Skills look fine - dump the rest into smite
    -Unless you are getting mega resists from your charms, you're going to want to get a wizard spike for the +75 resists so You can block an opponents conviction
    -for the ring: bk ring at best - or just a ring with good resists.
    -Gloves: anything will do here. Maybe ias for a weak smite and some resists will do
    -Dont worry about mana but silkweaves are fine
    -You will NEED those combat gcs. Getting them plain are very easy to find... just clear some old mules or w/e... trade for them one at a time and you can get 10 gcs faster than you think. For the bottom row get annhi (if possible) and life/resist scs.

    well unless ur gonna be dueling sorcs/foh palas and other casters except maybe druids, ur gonna need damage reduce, a shaft and verdungo help enourmously vs barbs/zons/wind druids/shapeshifters and kicksins and such, jus a lil flaw it seems to me as u will encounter them, and dont expect everyone having -xx light res and no absorb, as some ppl stash 4 x ort armors and a t-gods and wisp projector vs foh pallies, so relying on foh in all duels will get u killed, a powerful 1 hand weapon can be used along with charge, tho i doubt u have enough pts to max out charge/conc or fana, maybe consider smite as an alternative as u have max holy shield already, and dump a few pts in conc or fana and get an elite pally shield or upgrade the hoz

    Eh...

    wrong + wrong = wrong

    There's some math for the public.

    I have a templar paladin that SLAYS melee classes with 18% damage reduction [from a shako and an enigma]

    Paladins have high defense already and you are ALWAYS on the move. DR is a luctury for a templar. With my 16K defense, it takes most chargers 6 hits to actually hit me and by then they are gone.

    Strong FOH + weak smite = GG
    Strong FOH + weak charge = God help us all
