Great post! Wish I had seen your post a few years ago... Anyway, would you mind helping me improve on a currently lvl 8 Dwarf Paladin? I built this character when Giatnhold came out to make use of the multitude of Dwarven Axes (dwarven thrower) I found and already dumped a +1 tome in all the stats so I am reluctant to redo him... His starting stats are 17 14 10 9 14 14 (without the tomes). He has dodge, toughness, weapon focus slashing, though I could easily swap one or more of those out. I know its a tall order, but trying to salvage a character that I invested some time and tomes into hehe. Your thoughts are appreciated!
