Rock on Good evening. I am a newbie. Perhaps I'm posting on the wrong forum or this has already been asked but I'll fire away. What drew me to this game was mistakenly browsing to a Paladin-Class forum such as this (might even be this one , whatever). I'm a big fan of Fantasy , Paladins and Knights in general. Anyway , I was quite intrigued about the Freeze-Alot , or whatever it is. The Zeal Paladin that uses Holy Freeze. I decided to try and join the fun. So at the point I'm at now , I have : 1) Bought and installed the game. 2) Made a Paladin who is level 25/Ladder/USWest 3) Spent his points in Zeal/Holy Freeze/ Resist Cold Ok , so now *drum roll* Now the newbiest of the newb question of them all: And I quote (myself) - "How the hell do I use Zeal and Holy Freeze in unison, or in some kind of combination?" The INSTANT I (scroll my mousewheel) to Zeal from HF , my freeze effect ends. Those lumbering frozen giants all wake up and start hacking me , and my 132-173 Holy Freeze dmg (ok I have crap gear so far) turns into 23-53 Zeal dmg. How the heck! My guy seems to take everyone apart pretty well with H/Freeze alone , but how do I incorperate Zeal into the equation , or more likely , when? I've tried various ways of switching faster , but I would have to have the reflexes of a housefly to cash in on what's left of holy freeze by the time I scroll to zeal. Then again , I am a newb. I'm doing OK on most things just using holy freeze, but I'm barely using Zeal at all and it seems a waste of points. One place where I do seem to switch back and forth a little easier is on bosses. Man some of them like Isual ? sp? The first dude in act4 and Duriel seem to take forever. Oh Duriel. That dill-hole took me forever to kill and ate up like 150k of my savings trying to get past. Apparently the Freeze-alot (or at least the gimp way I am playing one) is not the best on that dude. Any suggestions how I can un-screw myself and start doing a little better? Any other Paladin sub-classes that might be a little more my speed? I'm usually a quick study but , ah well maybe sucking a little on this game so far. Thanks in advance. Rock on , Sloan I need to read the rules of this forum.
