Updated Dragoon Guide The Dragoon (Introduction. I) What is the Dragoon exactly? It is a Paladin that wields throwing weapons. Those kind of Paladinâ€™s abandoned the faith in wielding bows and crushing weapons. For the sole purpose of showing that a Paladin could survive with only his shield and living non-violent. I.

Now what is this? E-q-u-i-p-m-e-n-t? (Planning Your Equipment. III) Well it has come to this... Choosing your equipment. The Helm: The Helm of the Dragoon is one of the key things. There are several suggestions about this part of your equipment. I will list the best helms for the Fanatic Dragoon Here: 120/45 Helm, CoA and Shako Here is the Tesla Dragoonâ€™s Helmâ€™s list: Griffonâ€™s Eye, Shako and CoA Both of the builds has CoA and Shako in their Helm suggestionâ€™s part because of the versatility of the helms. But they are listed in order of effectivity in PvM. Other great suggestions are: Andariels Visage Rockstopper Vampire Gaze And Blackhorns Face The Armour: The Armour is the protector and saviour of your little Paladin and it should protect him well shouldnâ€™t it?. Fanatic Dragoonâ€™s Armour suggestions: Enigma, Stone, Arkaines Vailor ,Tyraels Might and Guardian Angel. Tesla Dragoonâ€™s Armour suggestions: Enigma, CoH, Ormus ,Tyraels Might and Guardian Angel. I canâ€™t really see any other armour that will work â€œgreatâ€ with these builds. Boots: Boots are the little sneakers or heavy metal bootâ€™s your Paladin Wearâ€™sâ€¦ The Fanatic Dragoons boots suggestions: There is only oneâ€¦ one the godly, the only oneâ€¦ Gore Riderâ€™s! Tesla Dragoonâ€™s Bootieâ€™s ^^: Here is your choice: More fire res or more poison res? Waterwalks or Sandstorm Trekâ€™s Belt: The belt Keepâ€™s your Paladins stomach from popping out of his Armour :d Only one belt that will work good: Verdungoâ€™s Hearty Cord!... Or Arachnidâ€™sâ€¦ Gloveâ€™s: The gloves are the stuff that keeps your hands warm... see?? The Fanatic Dragoon: The Fanaticâ€™s basically has one choiceâ€¦ Steelrendâ€™s Tesla Dragoon: Teslaâ€™s has some choices to make here:â€™ Do I Want more (or just want) lifetap? Do I want more Fhr? Do I want to wear Draculâ€™s or Bloodfistâ€™s? (Throwing Switch)Shield: Basically thereâ€™s one armour for both builds: The Herald of Zakarum. It giveâ€™s 2 palla skills and 2 combat skills plus it haves the respectful 20% bonus to AR. (Throwing) Weapon: For the Fanatic there are several options: Lacerators for Amp Warshrikes for Pierce and DS% And Demons Arch for Range But for The Tesla there is really one option with stillâ€¦ many weaponâ€™s to choose from: The fastest you can find . (Smiting Switch) Shieldâ€¦ Only Fanatic Dragoons: Hereâ€¦ there are 2 choices: Herald of Zakarum or Stormshield Herald for Dmg and Storm for Dmg Reductionâ€¦ (Smiting) Weapon: For ladder runners: Grief it is the best u can get with its tremendous dmg boost. Nonladder: Astreonâ€™s or a Doom for the Hf but itâ€™s considered BM where some people duel. Charms: The Last resort of Dragoonâ€™sâ€¦ Charms!!! Fanatics: Fanaticâ€™s can use both fine and steel small charmâ€™s but they should use a minimum of 4 offensiveâ€™s to keep their dmg over 2k with throwing... 3-4k when looking at other weaponâ€™s then warshrikeâ€™s in max dmg buildâ€™s 5-6k but I havnt reached it. Teslaâ€™s: Teslas should have at least 15 steel small charms and the rest should be offensive grand charms. Stat Points? (Stat placement IV.) The stat Placement is more like a Meele Paladin except some more "Ranged" Futures. Strenght: The strenght should be modified so u at the exact stat point can wear your heaviest item. Dex: There are two Variations Offensive: Get your dex two that sweet 175-200 and youll be fine but life is a real boggle here. Defensive: there are SOME that dont like being offensive they like being the sitting duck (but want to be a sitting duck with A lot of survivability) so they would like the minimum dex needed And use a Guardian Angel, This is what i did Btw. youll get lots of life beacuse od that holy shield too, plus think of gettin some really high block shield. Vitality: Put every spare point here or; "THOU SHALLT BE SMOTE DOWN BY THE MIGHTY GODS OF DIABLO!!!" Energy: The need for mana should eventually be negated by mana steal plus throwing dont cost mana . Im gonna try upping my double leech 353% ed javelins and see if they work. Some pointers: 1. With a dream setup u loose the block but u can become an elemental dragoon and do massive elemental dmg 2. Exile is really great for the Defensive variant 3. Dont be afraid to try new things like duress etc even new ladder rw's and pm me and ill try to include em. //tastychiken Europe Thats the updated guide it has a stat placement section now and some pointers.
