Continued from: https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/446512-Theorycrafting-Paladin-and-FVS-lives-gear-and-build for feedback on the other life...

I'm thinking about doing a completionist character and doing Paladin and FVS lives back to back. I'm really interested in trying to do so with (mostly) the same set of gear for both. Some key, personal requirements are:

1) Must be a halfling.
2) The FVS life will be a warpriest. (which means...)
3) Faith will be Sovereign Host for Paladin and FVS to use longswords.
4) I would prefer to be sword and board.
5) The maximum splash for either build will be 2 levels. (I don't have access to druid, I have all other classes.)
6) I would like to be able to solo most heroic quests (with or without a hire) and contribute to parties.
7) Don't really need an uber-tank or exceptional epic level build other than level 20-22-ish.

Given that, I'm looking for ideas for both builds and gearing.

Suggestions as to a good set of overlapping gear would be great.

Note: The only divine I've ever played is a Warpriest Cleric... who happens to be Warforged. I have some mid-level Cannith crafting skills, and will plan on farming as much of the gear as I can before TRing. The only major packs I don't have are the Necro chain, VoN, Deleras, and the challenges...

The character in question will have 2 rogue past lives (for what it's worth), a paladin past life, and a complete set of +3 attribute tomes.

Any suggestions, constructive advice, etc.?

The current working concept for the FVS life is:

Additionally, same sword and board with longswords, primarily melee with ameliorating strike as the primary HP maintenance tool with probably middling-fair heals.

I will have--prior to TRing--the mats for a green steel longsword, maybe two.

I was thinking about a triple positive for the massive alignment damage, but Lit II was another possible candidate.

For the rest:

I have or can/will easily farm Watcher's Blade (have), A Threnalian War Blade (will farm or buy), a Nightforge Avenger Blade (have the ore, will get), Divine Vengeance (have), Flametongue (have, unbound), Sirocco (both an unbound one and an older, pre-augment one), an unused Raider's Box (for Tinah, Sword of the Sea), and an unbound Xoriat Forged Blade.

I have an unbound Light and Darkness shield, a Vengeful Protector shield, a Wall of Wood (unbound, either heroic hard or heroic elite, can't remember which), and a couple of nice craftable, BTA mithral large shields.

If I need light armor, I have a pretty good store of many of the lighter ones. For heavier armor, I have enough relics for any type of giantcrafted/elfcrafted/dragoncrafted armor or blue/black/white dragon armor, a Brutish Cuirass, Gorgon Armor, unbound Mithral Full Plate of Speed, Unbound Orcish Privateers Plate, an unbound (Strength or Con) Terrorweb Chitin Breastplate, and a set of Templar's Bastion armor.

That's where I'm starting from on gear, so, I'm cool with having to have odd, named blades or armor. Looking for what you guys would think is key other gear as well.
