    Default Best melee build if you don't like grinding

    So I've been playing my new paladin... and I think I've pretty much decided to splash 2 levels of rogue when the cap goes up... mainly for evasion and UMD.

    So I'll end up with a 18/2 Paladin/Rogue with full UMD skills

    The neat thing about this build....

    • I don't need to grind for Mineral II weapons, because the Holy Sword spell takes care of that for that for me...
    • I don't need to grind for raise dead rings or raise dead shroud items because I can use raise dead scrolls...
    • I don't need a planar gird because I can scroll GH
    • I don't need a true seeing item because I can scroll True Seeing
    • I don't need a fear immunity or disease immunity item...
    • I don't really need an upgraded silver flame amulet because I can use Restoration scrolls (but that's not much of a grind so I'll get it)
    • I don't really need Cloak of Ice or Firestorm Greaves because I have evasion...


    Pretty much all I need is a bloodstone, probably a Tier II Air-Air Shroud item (200 SP, haste clickable, and +3 CHA skills for UMD)

    That sure is a lot less grinding than my other two melees

    Shame you didn't start with rogue then.

    Also if you have neg levels might be tough scrolling that restoration scroll (depending). Silver flame amulet is boo-boo-proof.

    And I thought you meant cause he would have 6 negative levels .

    Personally I don't think the grind for a Silver Flame necklace is that bad. Run a quest series (yes I agree it is monotonous and boring) 3 times and you are guarenteed a fully upgraded 8 charge necklace!

    There are a LOT worse grinds than that - sometimes it takes me more that three tried to get my Goggles from Tangleroot or my Cartouche from Deleras...

    To me having high UMD and a stack of Res, Heal, MCM, and Resto scrolls means I can help myself and or my party members - but that is just me.

    That too.

    Seriously though, negative levels don't affect non-UMD scrolling.
