Suggestions, tips for my FOH paladin

Ok so I have used no points or anything but I'm looking just looking for tips, suggestions of the items I'm looking to get so far etc. Before anyone goes into saying they're dupes, I don't have them yet.

FOH stick
20/20 armor
20/20 pally or monarch shield
griffons with 5/5
maras
arachnid mesh
magefists
2x sojs
etheral sandstorm treks
9x pcombs
ptorch
anni

would that be real godly? about how much damage would that do. also instead of the 20/20 armor should I be using a COH or enigma? just like item suggestions, and how much FHR should i have for a FoH. what switch items, like if i'm fighting a windy, or if people start to staack vs. me. also can someone tell me diff between Hoz and 20/20, soj and bk etc for a Foh paladin.

You are going to be pubbing over 1v1 right?

If you are pubbing then you'll never use the gear you listed out above unless you 1v1 a hdin


In a pub there are always a mixture of element+physical damage or whatever and you are seriously lacking both damage reduction and resist.
It's best you get a steady build/gear and only have minor switches for specific classes like other fohers,blizz.
Once again if you are playing a pub, everybody will stack you. You'd see kiras ort'd, mass p topaz shield, light res aura itself, fade prebuff.

How does a foh varient sound or do you want to remain pure foh?

Anyways, fohers tend to use spirit in high res and perf fcr along with enigma. They will use either trang/bloodfist or arachnids/dungos/tgods to hit fcr bp. When they go spirit, they get high fhr and fcr at once along with great resist.. You pretty much kill 3 flaws at once.

BK vs SoJ - You can use mana pots, bk gives 40+ life (Non bo-able)

In my book, pure FoH'ers are never godly (I don't hesitate to use massive sorb because I hate FoH). You will end up being sorbed a lot because:

1. They have to because you are so bent on lowering their resists.
2. When they finally get to a reasonable point, many aren't going to stop and will negate your foh to nothing.
3. FoH requires little skill to use and is auto-hit, imagine that. The strategy ends up being run + FOH most of the time, and this ticks many people off (me included).

I'd really recommend a varient of some sort.

Foh/hammers
Foh/smite
Anything with foh! pure fohers are really ez to anybody even decent.

My un-faceted HoZ adds 1.9k Damage to my FoH ..
20-20 Shield adds about 1.1k Damage.
Not to mention, Faceted HoZ will be 2.2k Damage + other nice mods.
As for the Armor, I'd say give it a try.
I'm looking at finding that armor, Using enigma right now .. Im guessing it'll help a lot, So give it a try.

With all your gear you'll peak at around 10k Damage, Which in my opinion is overkill .. You should trash a couple Pcombs and replace with Life + FHR or Res + FHR SC's.
If you can get intense FHR, You can stand in one spot and basically tank the melee's (don't ask me why, it just seems to happen that way :p)

Life FHR isn't possible on charms. Just try and reach 86%fhr bp, don't see why you'd need something else unless *assa*. Use 20/5's.

I'd probably keep all the Pc's. The less you have, the more sorbable you become. *no* whatever too tired. And you're probably talking about pvm... I hope.

And 1+pt for FoH varaints rather than pure FoH

I agree with everyone else. Pure FoH is pretty weak. (cept for NK TGing)

I have a VT myself, but Mages also do well.
