    Litany works for LG characters without penalty?

    If u plan all ur stats odd without Littany, the benefits will overcome the neg lvl.

    It gives -1 to saves, -10 hps and, -1 attack I believe, but if using the littany makes ur con even again, then u net 10 hps, dont lose any attack bonus or saves. You gain str dmg if ur str was odd, on top of the +1 profane attack and dmg.

    I tried converting this build to Half Orc but it's NOT worth it.
    There is just not enough APs to fit in all the good Half Orc enhancements and keep all the Pally dmg enhancements.

    You would lose out on:

    Divine Might IV +8 dmg (2 more dmg than tier III)
    Pally Capstone (1or3d6 vs E or EO)
    Tier III KOTC (2d6 vs EO more than Tier II)
    Divine Sacrafice III (9d6 Light dmg vs all, 2d6 more than Tier II)
    Extra LoH Tier III
    Bladesworn Transformation (+4 str and +4 dmg)
    +2 con starting

    So you'd just gain +4 str, +4 dmg
    + better incoming heals

    I still think the THF is worthy. Max dps is max dps.

    For what it's worth, I have a decently geared TWF pali (2x epic Chaos Blades, etc.) and the DPS seems very high on that build as well.

    Part of Ulti's perspective may be that he is one of the best players on our server, run with him and you'll see, and has a ton of experince with the subtle nuances of THF that make the difference.

    If we assume player skill to be constant for both styles, the changes in U5 hit THF paladins harder than TWF due to the glancing blow changes. Ulti have you tested both styles again after the current update? I'd be interested in your numbers, similar to the testing you did early on in your Sins solo runs.

    the thing is, for a not hard core player as me, getting an epic sos is a possibility, getting two epic chaos blades is impossible, so even if thats higher dps, i cant dream of it...

    Question

    But still, what are the best alternatives to all those THF feats?

    I dusted my THF off the other day and was trying to understand the THF mechanics a bit more.

    A question about glancing blows since you seem to have run a pali with THF for quite some time now.

    I did some testing in the devil battlefield today because I saw this number breakdown and it was not what I was seeing. Here is what I did and the results I see.

    (I have Greater Two Handed Fighting feat and this is a human KotC 17 Pal / 2 Rogue)

    Buff. Run somewhere and gather 2-4 orthons and/or devils in a group. Target one. stand still and swing. At various times I used a Holy GS of Greater Undead bane, a metalline of evil outsider bane GS and also used a Min I (not yet third tiered) Great Axe which was Acid/good burst. KotC 2 at the moment.

    Results:
    I would hit the main target with Weapon Damage + Holy + KotC. I would get quite a lot of glancing blows probably 30% or so on the foes I am not targeting. However they would only get the reduced Weapon damage + KotC damage. I NEVER saw holy proc (or acid/good or greater bane as the case may be)

    Are the weapon effects supposed to proc on glancing blows? I read the feat description to mean it was supposed to. I am not really happy with GTHF damage potential if this is the case.

    I've noticed the exact same thing on my dwarf THF (all 3 feats) Barbarian... I'm currently using a Min II Greataxe. On Glancing Blows the only damage I get is the reduced main weapon damage and frenzy/death frenzy damage. The weapon effects NEVER proc on glancing Blows.

    On a side note a vorpal two-handed weapon and supreme cleave (hits ALL mobs within your weapon radius) work rather nicely on quests like sins of attrition where you are constantly surrounded by a lot of high hit point mobs.

    Its not very high: http://community.codemasters.com/for...ml#post5759794


    Here's some numbers from my testing and my experiences so far. (Take note that these numbers are nowhere near 100% accurate, and may differe quite a lot from what I've said here)

    Kensai / FB rank: 5% each rank
    THF lines: 2% each feat
    Capstone: 5%
    WF Great Weapon Aptitude: 2% each rank

    Capstone is Barb capstone I assume. If so that means my Human Pali can get no more than 6% chance to happen. That is not worth 3 feats. The KotC splash damage is very situational and my splash build will not get the WoG damage.

    I may have to rethink this alt.

    Cleave and supreme cleave have separate cool downs do they not? They might be better feat alternatives to the THF feats.

    I know that cleave and supreme cleave are on seperate timers... I would assume great cleave is on a seperate timer as well.

    That being said, because the animation breaks up your attack chain and is actually fairly slow using cleave seems to be only useful for spamming weapon effects like banishment, disruption, vorpal etc.

    Also Cleave and Great Cleave only efffect a certain amount of mobs in your range (I forget the numbers) whereas supreme cleave effects ALL monsters within range.

    Supreme Cleave is only available to Frenzied Berserkers and has the side effect of causing minor damage to you as well.
