    The True Paladin

    I'm planning on building a Paladin in the most classic sense of the character. Making him a true disciple of the Light. To that end, he will use solely the most virtuous, uniquest, unique gear of the highest caliber. Something like the following:

    W: Azurewrathe
    A: Tyrael's Might
    S: Stormshield
    H: Crown of Ages
    G: Steelrend
    B: Verdungo's Hearty Cord
    B: Gorerider
    A: Seraph's Hymn
    R: 2xNature's Peace
    C: Anni/Torch/Whatever I need to make up for the shortcoming of other gear.

    He'd be your traditional Fanatic Zealot. Maybe a Fist of Heaves twist on switch. The gear choices are meant to be two things, virtuous in lore and mysterious in their rarity. Any better gear suggestions? Some just fit in by default.

    Re: The True Paladin

    Heavens Light sounds better? Or Hand of Blessed Light?

    Like the idea!! How will the skillset look like?

    Re: The True Paladin

    I was thinking Heaven's Light on switch actually, to use for Fist of the Heavens, and possibly zealing bosses.

    I'm thinking it will look something like Max Zeal, Fanatacism, Fist of the Heavens, Holy Shock, and Sacrifice, with as much as I need in Holy Shield.

    He'll be a righteous hand of God, calling down judgement from the heavens for those who defy him.




    In terms of shields, I'm finding myself at a bit of an impasse for a shield that stands out as exceptionally unique, or something that Tyrael himself might use. I'm thinking Spirit Ward might be the least impious. In terms of rarity:
    Dragonscale (TC 84) Dragons and hydras are poisonous serpents. No.
    Spirit Ward (TC 84) No unholy connotations.
    Medusa's Gaze (TC 81) Comes from a demon beast. No.
    Head Hunter's Glory (TC 78) It's got skulls in it. No.
    Stormshield (TC 72) Neutral.
    Alma Negra (TC 72) Means black soul. No.
    Spike Thorn (TC 69) Spikes aren't gentlemanly. No.
    Blackoak Shield (TC 63) Casts a curse. No.
    Herald of Zakarum (TC 51) Relic of a traitorous sect. No.

    So, what do you think? I guess it's Spirit Ward or Stormshield? I might also need another for my switch.


    There is also the option of supplementing some of the more dubious items for things from the The Disciple set, Rite of Passage instead of Gore Rider, Credendum instead of Verdungos, and Laying of the Hands instead of Steelrend. I think I like that idea.

    Re: The True Paladin

    I think I'm going to stay away from runewords. It kind of cheapens the whole thing. Thanks though.


    This is what I have:

    W1: Azurewrathe
    S1: Spirit Ward
    W2: Heaven's Light
    S2: Stormshield
    H: CoA
    A: Seraph's Hymn
    A: Tyrael's Might
    G: LotH
    B: Credendum
    B: Rite of Passage
    R1: Nature's Peace
    R2: Manald Heal

    Re: The True Paladin

    How about Mosers Blessed Circle? It comes with nice block/25@res/2sockets.

    Its also a decent def shield, if upgraded to elite.

    I considered Moser's, but despite its useful mods it's just an exceptional shield name after some dumb programmer.

    Hah, i was going to suggest Moser's until i read down to the bottom of the post. Actually though, i think Stormshield fits with Fist of the Heavens and Holy Shock.
