    Here's my low-down on my pally:

    I use:
    Zeal/Concentration (conc lvl 26): this works just about anywhere

    Zeal/Fanatacism (Fanatacism lvl 23): Ditto...plus a faster attack, too

    Vengeance/Fanatacism (Veng lvl 22/Fanat lvl 23): This works on ANYTHING, including those pesky Physical Immunes in HELL... Only problem is attack speed...

    Im startin a paly soon to, so i got a question about your build. why concentration? and how many points in Vengeance (max i assume) also do you need conviction, i assume its helpful but im not sure.

    This is an older character I made when Concentration was THE aura...

    I use concentration in parties sometimes because the area effect is larger than fanatacism... but in solo, I stay with Fanatacism

    I made the mistake of trying out the holy shock aura. Even maxed out it doesn't cut the cheese ( am currectly at lvl 23 in it). I think that if they moved the lower at the same time as the upper it would be more effective, but come on now, always 1 point of lightning damage regardless of lvl?

    Anyway. I have a lvl 23 fanatisicm and 12 conviction. I find that with using the Tiamat's Rebuke and getting a lightsabre (if I can, currently use the Atlantean) will save this character. This is the only way I can kill the physical immunes (slow kills with the Atlantean). My vengence level is only 4, so it is not too good yet and it is as slow as balls, I will have to try it with fanatisicm instead on conviction. We will see. I hope that he is not going to be a dead character! If so, start over time!!!

    Moose... Fanatacism works very will in conjunction with Fanatcism... The speed boost negates the slower swinging of Vengeance.

    In 5 Peep Hell games, my Vengeance/Fanatacism combo kills all phys immunes in about 2-5 swings per...
