Hello all.

I have an alt that I would to put some FvS PLs on.

I have experience getting arcanes through the low to mid levels but Im a bit lost with a FvS.

Do I take a GA feat and hack and slash with a view to swapping in a meta at later levels or is there a goto damage spell at low levels?

Any tips or advice would be very welcome

Holy Smite is adequate (not excellent, but adequate). Take it at level 8.

Or just melee with a quarterstaff (which you get proficiency in for free).

You can also heal PUGgers.

It's a slog. You basically play a gimp paladin til level 12. At least you have plenty of self heals.

If you have a druid past life taking the flameblade feat really helps get thru the early levels. (need to be helf or elf for prof though)

Lowbie hjealzor caster offense makes you want to Scream with frustration.
Or take axe prof, swap for heighten at 18.
Or bribe a robot sorc to be your tr partner.
Or holy smite + unmetaed soundburst + hoard half the dungeon with radiance on gear, maximize and AoV asap.

Cleric isn't as bad, IMO. You get radiant burst by the time you hit bloody crypt/deleras. So you have some aoe damage.

Thank you all for the replies, ideas and tips.

I will find this FvS levelling incredibly difficult as my last 3 lives have been as a WF Water Savant and one prior to that as a WF AM.


Im thinking about taking a GAxe feat for the first ?? levels and playing it by ear from there.


All advice welcome
