    I was wondering if any one was interested in playing an all pally team 8people would be the best cause it would mean auras more exp and more drops and each person would have to make a pally that dosent duplicate auras and also we would of course have to be on the same realm and have compatible schedules and it would probably be better if no one plays there pally out side of the team so no one gets behind if any one is interested post ideas here as well as when you can play I can play almost every night after 6:30 and im on east but id be willing to make a guy on any other realm as long as I can play there without beaing lagged to death

    ooooo, ooo, ooo
    Holy Shock Pally


    I'm up for it. but I really don't think it's going to work out. We've tried these things several times (with far fewer restrictions) and they usually fell through.

    let me know time and place and I'll bring electroman. :D

    lvl 61 Defiant reporting for duty... so far we have...
    Defiant
    Holy Shocker
    ... We need a Vigor, Fanatisim, consentration, and a holy freezer... then we should be able to handle everything

    I probabloy should have mentioned this in the first post but i was more thinking of people making new guys just for this team so every one would have a guy that could play with each other cause i know for sure that I dont have any lvl 60 or so pallys that I could use

    also with an all pally team you could use some usefull auras that it would be inpractical to use full time if you were solo (ie. Cleansing, Salvation, Blessed Aim)

    I kinda put together a list of auras that I think would be nice in a party

    Defiance
    Meditation(if people need mana)
    Salvation
    Cleansing

    Blessed Aim
    Concentration
    Fanaticism
    Conviction
    Holy Freeze

    It was pretty clear to me that you were talking about starting new pallys. The sentence including "each person would have to make a pally that doesn't duplicate auras" pretty much tipped me off. ;) :D

    Yeah, I guess Wulf is just slow...

    also does holy shock give the +lightning Damage to party members or just the user?

    I dunno. pretty sure it is one of the pally only auras - which would sort of defeat the purpose I suppose.

    A holy shock pally is just the next char on list list of wacky ones to make (followed by "Smint" an Arctic Blast Druid).

    hmm, that could work. Though I am going for the full theme and mixing Holy shock with charge :laugh: (and hope to hell that I don't find many lightning resistant critters)

    perhaps even use a big ass trident as the "plug"

    maybe I should call him "duracell"

    Hmm...I got bored so I created a paladin on useast. He's level 9 now with 40 character stat points and 8 skill points. I haven't put one point into him yet since I'm not sure how I want to procede. Maybe by the time this gets organized I'll be level 45.

    Here's a few thoughts:

    Fanatacism - great aura, lousy radius. Not a good team choice. Blessed aim and making sure you use fast weapons / IAS gear in the first place may be a better idea. "Staying close" to keep the aura working just isn't practical. If someone insists on fanat, they should try to stay near the center of the group so the aura passes on to as many people as possible.

    Cleansing, Salvation, Meditation,vigor - all work well with just one point invested, so it's not essential to specialize in these to use them in a party. Pumping them does increase their radius, however - so possible backup contenders.

    Holy freeze - mandatory for a party like this, if someone maxes this aura (for extra range not extra slow) it will rock.

    Concentration - increases in range with skill points. More than one person may want this (so there's always conc even if the main conc guy didn't make it).

    Conviction - also good enough to have more than one person with this aura in case the main conviction guy doesn't show.

    Holy shock - fun, and will take advantage of other players' conviction if they're using it, but the melee damage bonus only applies to the person using it. Not the best contribution to a party.

    Sanctuary - definitely a good role aura. I'm not sure if the +% to melee attacks goes to party members, but the knockback to undead might make it worthwhile in any case. (and +720% melee damage to undead at lvl 20 isn't something to totally laugh at).


    Another useful idea would for each player to get an act 2 merc, trying to spread out their auras. That way you also get a little might, blessed aim, prayer, thorns, defiance, and holy freeze mixed without any player having to use those as a primary aura (but none quite as good as a true specialist).
    -----

    I'm willing to make a meditation / fist of the heavens paladin with a mix of secondary auras. I'm not sure whether I'll be able to play every time the group gets together, however, so I'd prefer to use one of my 3 existing non-retired paladins if the group catches up to them. The lowest level one is the zealot who has lvl 16 holy freeze, lvl 16 concentration, and lvl 12 fanatacism (hey I've had to solo with him).

    What the hell, I'd join. I'll handle either the defiance or vigor if no one minds. Also, I don't have any characters to load this guy up on East, so if anyone can spare some newbie items I'd appreciate it. Let me know when we start 'cause I need to go out and get a modem for my gaming box, it only has a network adapter but I don't have DSL at the moment.
