Greetings all,

So, I'm mostly back on the TR grind, and want to get a couple more BF and Pally lives. I was thinking it may be fun to play a pure class again, as it's been a while since I've done that. The last time I played a pally was pre-update 17 (Return to GH), I think, and from what I remember, I had a really horrible time playing the pally. With the changes to pallies recently (at least a couple of updates back), perhaps now's the time to revisit that class.

Here are the PLs I currently have:


2x Artificer
1x Barbarian
1x Bard
2x Cleric +current = 3
1x Druid
3x Favored Soul
1x Fighter
2x Monk
1x Paladin
1x Ranger
1x Rogue
1x Sorcerer
2x Wizard
Total: 20 past lives

1x Competionist

1x Bladeforged

2x Colors of the Queen
2x Doublestrike
2x Power over Life
1x Enchant Weapons
Total: 7 Epic PLs


I like the look of this (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/449262-Steel-Shrine), but again, I'd like to do pure and BF.

My play style is all HE up to 20, then EH to 28. I do pug from time to time, but most of my play is with my partner (so, just the two of us), normally splitting the roles between us (trapping, tanking, DPS, sneaking, etc.). I'd prefer tanking and DPS with self healing capability.

Any takers / advice?

Paladin would be excellent also as a BF. I would go with that given your description.

Pure Bladeforged Paladin is one of the Top Tier builds there are at the moment.

Feats are a bit short, make sure you take at least the standard DPS stuff:
PA and/or Precision, Improved Crit., Cleave (prereq. for Momentum Swing), 3xWeapon Style, Overwhelming Crit., maybe stunning blow if you want to build for it.
I'd also take quicken for the Recon SLA.

Enhancements:
- BF stuff Repair Amp, Recon SLA, Power of the Forge
- then spend most your points in KotC, maybe some harper tree and pick up a SaD stance if you like it

Not much you can do wrong actually with this.
