    Suggested order of skill maxing as a V/T?

    I'm trying to figure out a good order to follow in maxing V/T skills. Can anyone suggest one?

    Can anyone offer some advice I've got about 16 unspent skill points awaiting a viable solution :)

    Thanks

    You didn't even wait an hour for someone to reply and u already double posted... but whatever.

    There's a guide up there if you didnt know. And I'm assuming its for pvp correct? And tell us if you're gonna be more smite than foh or viceversa.

    The guide didn't give too much guidance on that matter, and whether or not maxing them in an order is at all important, but I feel it is.

    I plan to use Smite more than FOH, yes.

    Leaning towards smite, eh? K here we go...

    First max holy shield and fanaticism. Next I suggest placing ten in conviction and maxing holy shock. Dump rest in Foh.

    Explanation: Holy Shield is an all around good skill which boosts defense and chance to block. Fanaticism will be the main aura for exping or smiting.

    20 in holy shock is better than 20 foh b/c foh will be pumped through combat gcs, as will smite...More unnatural points in holy shock will not add to overall damage.

    Around level 89, you should have around 14-16 natural in foh. With a couple combat gcs and +skills from items, the damage should reach around 2.5k, which, although not great, will be okay for pvp.

    That wasn't exactly "leaning towards smite". Do like this:

    1) Put a point in sacfrifice and zeal (zeal your way through the game. It's faster and easier. Use a lifeleech stuff and an eth botd or something)
    2) Max fana (you'll need the ed/ias/ar) but put a few in holy shield first
    3) Max holy shield
    4) Put one in conviction
    5) Put a few in foh
    6) Max smite
    7) Put the rest in foh and holy shock
    9) Lastly, pump conviction


    It depends on +skills. If you have 10 combats, and shako, enigma, Hoz, etc, you won't be better off maxing holy shock. Use a skill calculator. Besides, you will only have around 20 points to spend in foh/shock if you plan to have a lvl 25 conviction and maxed smite. 11foh/9shock would be optimal for me, but it depends on +skills, so double check me on that.

    at lvl 99 a V/T should have 30 pts to put into FOH/Holy Shock

    depends on the +skill you have

    they can range from 19/11 to 10/20/ for maximum dmg.

    Depends on how many points in conviction though. And considering it takes 100 years to reach 99....

    I usually calculate with 12 combat skills (2 from HoZ) and +10-12 skill points from gear.

    Btw, when are you going to email me that thing?
