    Smile Help with PM Fighting build

    I have two pale masters atm (one is an AA PM experimental and the other your standard garden variety caster) I was thinking, is there an effective way to make a Pale Master knight type build with a decent dps and decent spellcasting?
    I'm having trouble coming up with the build...
    What do you think?

    Ive seen a few that looked decent involving monk.

    I made a fighting PM a bit back, he was alot of fun expecially while leveling. But he was not nearly as affective endgame as my regular PM.

    I really liked this build. Not sure if it's what your looking for but I hope it helps... Watch the video it explains a lot...

    Be aware that a build like this requires quite a bit of gear...

    How would you run this as a 32pt build?

    Have a look at the Arcane Knight and my own variant the Wraith Blade for two recent examples of melee Pale Masters (which hopefully aren't terrible ).

    Very good spellcasting ability, awesome survivability and a pretty good melee option. You can see him in action here:
