Question on smite, holy shield and defiance.

I was reading The Kings "Vindicator" guide and in the guide it says to max defiance, as a synergy to holy shield. But all this synergy does is add to the defense holy shield adds. So wouldnt it be more beneficial to max charge instead of defiance?

What do you mean by beneficial? Increasing your defense is much better for this build because of the inherent absense of leech (not counting Life Tap CTC). Besides you already have an attack that ignores defense and blocking, what are you going to use Charge for? If you need it for moving around the one point pre-requisite for Charge is plenty.

For PvM, a PI strategy would be more effective.

For PvP, one of the strengths of the Paladin Character class is the massive defense gathered through only maxing Holy Shield and Defiance.

i say max charge......if this is for pvp of course.. cuz theres no way ur gunna catch caster/zon/or match a change against a smiter/charger.....and defense doesnt matter that much in duels cuz i mean most melee all use grief which has ignor targets defense so kinda useless

Max Defiance first before Charge. Charge is only used to get close to casters and knock them back. Then you smite them.
