    First of all, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

    Recently, I went on vacation and after talking with friends about RPG's (my notebook can't run the popular like Skyrim and Lol), then I wanted to play D2 again because I used to love it, when I was 11.

    I started to play last week and now, I'm in the third act, trying to finish the last quest. The problem is: they kill me very fast inside 3rd level of the dungeon (what's the name?). My char is a paladin at level 26 ou 27 (I was too impacient in act II to kill the monsters in the desert. Just passed through them) and my fire resistence is very low (something like 8).

    My question is: where is the best place that I could train? Travincal is cool, but too few monsters. Are Tal Rasha's Tombs good places to train? If you want, I can post my items.

    At your lvl, Im usually in Act4 killing stuff prior to Diablo. And thats where you get good xp, lvl 24-30.

    So post your stats, and skills!
    If you die too fast in Durance of Hate lvl 3, it might be that you just have low vitality.

    You wont need any resistances there really.

    Because they attacks are demons and not 'normal'? I read this somewhere about Duriel that my cold resistance wouldn't help there.

    So, my stats and offensive skills: View attachment 4452

    The deffensive are Prayer level 3 and Defiance lv 2.

    Im sry, for some reason I thought about durance lvl 2! Yes, youll need a little cold resist at least, to be able to tank Mephistos orb spell.

    The rule of thumb when starting a char, is to put enough str/dex to wear the gear you want. And rest in vitality, nothing in energy.
    I normally have around 90-120 vita at your lvl. Which is 50-110 more life.

    Another thing is that youve spent points in 2 skills you cant use at the same time. In normal difficulty, immune monsters are very rare. So youll do fine with 1 aura.
    However, neither Holy Fire or Holy Freeze does alot of dmg.

    I would respecc in act1, if you still have it, at Akara. (quest reward for completing Den of Evil)

    And then max Holy Shock, if thats the kind of Paladin you want. And lots of points into its synergies. Also 1p in Sacrifice to be able to get 4p in Zeal.
    Thats enough to get the 5attack Zeal. And you dont want more points until youve maxed at least Holy Shock + Resist Lightning.



    Peace

    I'm seeing that I did a lot of things wrong.. The solution, now, is only be patience and gain level? I guess Tal Rasha's Tomb is the only good place to me where the monsters are many. Or Great Marsh would be better?

    EDIT - I saw that I can only respec in patch 1.13. I have the 1.11 =/

    Do you play 1.11 for a specific reason?

    If no, then why not patch it to 1.13? There are tons of improvements.
