    spirit sword/shield

    I'm making a hammer pally for baal running and scraped up the runes for two spirits. since i'm strictly blessed hammers is it best to put the runes in a low lvl 4 os sword like a crystal sword? also whats a descent shield i can make spirit with for my paladin?

    Thx in advance,
    SeannyB

    For the sword, lower requirments = win. Crystal swords have the lowest requirments with ability to get 4 sockets(I think.)
    For the shield, it's best to use a paladin shield with good blocking and resists. Since the runes are so cheap, you can just make it in a "crappy" one for now, and remake it when you find a better base shield.

    i agree with nimbostratus, 4os pala shields are common look for ones with + combat skills or other useful skills
    all pala shiels have a max of 4 sockets, use larz if you find a good white one

    I don't think white/grey +combat skills shields are that common... (i.e. they don't exist). Paladin shields can have resists or damage/AR.

    A 4-sockets Crystal Sword is the best choice. If you can find an ethereal one, it's even better, since the requirements will be even lower (-10 Strength and -10 Dexterity).

    For the shield, aim for any socketable Paladin-specific shield with an auto-mod granting high prismatic resistances (up to 45). You'll be concerned with blocking only when you'll be high-level enough to find elite shields (Sacred Targes, etc...)

    Of course, we are all assuming you are making these on ladder. You cannot make a Spirit on non-ladder.:rolleyes:
