    Hello everybody, my first thread

    Anyway, I need to ask. Im going to start a paladin sometime soon and I would like to know about Paladin set up. I want to try a Charge/Vigor pally... if anybody knows about these please let me know good stats or items for them. (should I get something other than vigor?)

    Other than that... please tell me if thats a bad set up, because I would probably prefer a zealot if the charge idea is bad.


    And heres my final question... How do i make smilies?

    Blessed Hammer is the best skill for a Paladin in 1.10.

    Dont worry about mana.

    Here's how I built my pally and I can take most of anything in Hell, expect Gloams, which no one can really handle. I can solo Hell Diablo and Baal, so that says something.

    Enough str for equip (mine is about 114 with items)
    Dex + Holy Shield for max block (my holy shield is 10 with items)
    Rest into Vit
    NO ENERGY (its a waste to put points here, the dex and vit is a better place to spend points)

    Max Hammer
    Max Vigor
    Max Concentration
    5 points to zeal (I didn't need to spend that, I thought it might use it in a pinch, but I rarely ever hit anything with a weapon now)
    Blessed Aim is about 12 now, but I'm pumping it now
    1 point to Redemption (this is how you recover your mana)

    My pally wears P. Topaz Tarnhelm, Que Hagans Mage Plate, Maras Ammy, Herald of Zak with P. Diamond, Dwarf Star ring, rare 10% FCR ring with resists+mf, Goldwrap (upgraded), Chance Guards, Nats boots, Ali Baba for mf or Wizspike for heavy elemental areas.

    He is my mf character. I could get him some different equipment, but honestly, he does so well, I really don't need it. My resists are all around 50ish and I have over 1k life.

    I use a Holy Freeze merc, great for slowing down monsters.

    Oh, and I now do over 5,500k with Concentration on, with Blessed Aim still being pumped up. I am level 82 now. Hardly any monsters in the game are immune to hammers. Even most of the monsters who have "magic immune" titles I can still kill. The only monster I've come across that I can't hurt with hammers are the yetis in the Ruined Temple-Act 3 who are immune to magic.

    for more in-depth information, read this.....

    the guy who wrote this knows his stuff, all he really plays are paladins.
