    Sacrifice + Redemption pally

    I'm wondering if this is viable. Redemption is a good way to get life/mana quick, especially when supplied constantly with corpses. What better way to supply corpses via the hard-hitting sacrifice? Plus, the 15% damage synergy isn't that bad.

    I'm working on one now, he's level 23. It's quite difficult, until level 30, when redemption becomes available and the synergies for sacrifice kick in.

    Right now I'm putting a few points into prayer to make up for life lost using sacrifice. I'm using this through cleansing, which is handy. Only one point in this.

    It was kind of a mistake though, because the 6 points in prayer I have don't do enough to recover for lost life, unless you're very, very slow, and you walk everywhere. These points could have gone into my now level 12 sacrifice, and I could have just toughed it out with potions.

    So I'm planning max sacrifice, max redemption, max holy shield, and the rest into defiance.

    I'm wondering if anyone's tried this, and if they've had much success at all.

    I made one of these suckers on last ladder season and emme tell you, you level FAST once you are doing thousands of damage at lvl 40 and 50. In duels it is not surprising to win in one hit vs non pros. I am confused why you don't use fanatacism though. You can't use redemption as your main aura, you will run out fo corpses really fast, you need to "apply as necessary"

    I'm with Wingspan on this one.

    I've been thinking of making one of these chars for a while now, but only recently actually started (now clvl5)

    My biggest concern with any build is Attack Rating, and Sacrifice doesn't add much of it. 7% per slvl, compared to Zeal or Vengeance which each give 10%

    You can't NOT max
    Sacrifice
    Redemption
    Fanaticism (for synergy, and as main aura)

    I'd say at least 4 in zeal (although very un-purist) mostly for low-life situations where u need to leech some life back FAST; the damage synergy from sacrifice will really help in this function, I think.

    Maybe max blessed aim for passive AR bonus; as much as I hate having to do so, you're gonna need to hit every swing, (almost as important as killing in one hit) or else it'll hurt.

    Rest into everyone's fav. HolyShield.

    Sound good?

    I agree that holy shield is a good choice for this one. 4 in zeal is prolly not a bad idea, though I never had AR issues while using Sac/Fanat most of the time. I would reccomend a defensive merc of some kind. Then throw ur extra points into defiance or blessed aim, whicever u need more.

    You're probably looking at weapons with high minimum damages for the leech since leech only effects physical damage, also with lifetap weapon to cast level 5 lifetap on switch (97 charges), they can be found on kris type weapons in nightmare and hell shops. The sacrificer should be no problem with lifetap kris on switch. I use one for my frostzealot and my barb merc never dies to anything then certain hard uniques or bosses in hell. It sure beats the hell out of paying/trading for draculs and exile, esp since you can cast it whenever you want on any group of monsters for a slight hit to your pocket in repair bill. Which should be no problem. BTW the level requirment on a kris of level5 lifetap is level 24 so you can start using it early if you can find someone who's fairly high level in NM (act5 shops 100% sure thats where I got mine from mala) or hell (most acts I think??) to 're-roll' the items in the shops until he finds one and buys one for you. Should be easy to find with a little patience. I think they are around 25K.
