    V/T help please

    I don't have access to a skill calculator, so I would be forever in your debt if someone could help me with this:

    I made a V/T... I have maxed the vindi skills, now working on foh/conviction

    I need to know which is the best way to spread my points:

    Is a higher lvl conviction (26) better to go for then actual FoH damage? if so... I am thinking something like this: (keep in mind I only have 23 skill points to work with right now)

    5~ in conviction
    1 FoH
    rest into holy shock?

    Does that seem right to you guys?

    go with 1 in conviction, 35 FoH (with skills) rest into holy shock. that'll give you the max damage possible with those skills. besides, a high conv can be negated fairly easy, so i'ts better to have a high damaging foh even with conviction negated IMO

    Sorry sonic but i gotta say thats wrong bro... You will need a level 25 conviction before you get good damage... Anything above lvl 25 is waste/lame/terrible so dont worry about anything above 25. Get a lvl 25 conviction or close to it and get decent damage as well. [FOH at a mAx is about 6,000 damage so you can base your damage from that]. FOH without a decent conviction = no damage. Good luck with the V/T build though. When built right it can be deadly. Btw to my understanding its better to max FOH before holy shock until some lvl in the 30's or so... I didnt test that but i heard it somewhere.

    If you have 22 points left and decide to put 11 into conviction, you will optimize your foh damage by allocating your points like this:

    9 foh (u had 3 here already)
    6 holy shock (1 here already)

    EDIT: That is if you use 10 combats, have 10 pally skill pts from gear, and use HoZ.
