    Pali's are MAD (multiple atribute dependent), Sword and board is lower DPS but great dmg mitigation if you tanking, pali's are also feat starved so monk/fighter splashes are popular as well as human.

    I'm assuming that you dont have 32 point build unlocked or drow. Here is what I suggest. Build a barb (max your str and con get toughness and all the thf feats make it dwarf and use great axes it cheaper that way) take it to cap collect two eFangs from house D, get the sheild from VoD and the set from HoX, gather a full set of +2 tomes, maybe even some +3's (get 20 completes in the raids you oun and collect gear as if you were this pali build you want), and finally collect 20 epic dungeon tokens turn them in for a True Druitic Heart of Wood.

    After you have done that come back to the forums and ask the same thing but change 28 point build to 34 point build with PL Barb.

    +1 to you for an excellent suggestion.

    To the OP sadly the paladin class is already suffering from too many DPS downsides from fighter and barb to make a 28 point S & B work. Even with the extra threat gen from DoS and pally enhancements I doubt you could hold aggro well

    Here is a generic S & B bastard sword pally

    I didn't do the enhancements but it's obviously a DoS pally and you'll want anything that increases your hate since the best use of a S & B pally is to tank stuff. I also didn't do skills but intim might be nice if you can get your skill high enough and concentration is good to land spells when under duress.
