I am using the Dark Knight build 18/2 (fighter) with the Sentinel Dragonmarks for the Epic Chimeras Fang and Epic Chimeras Crown.
I have noticed that the +5 NA bonus from the Crown is not stacking with the new +5 from the stance.
In your earlier post you mention that the should all stack.
For me, I am not sure this is really going to matter as I am strongly considering going back to pure Paladin.
I took the two Fighter levels for free tower shield feat (which should be free anyway on a feat starved toon) and to get the dragonmarks, but I dont see myself using those two items when I acquire the new gear.
Also, now seeing how easy it is to break a thousand hp, Yugo Pots aren't as cool as they once were, and neither are toughness enhancements.
I would rather invest my action points into things that will make my toon a better party member than try to go for 1300 hp, because let's face it, Paladins were getting it done with 800-950, why do they need 1300?
My toon is not an ac bulid and I am currently at 110 standing with no buffs or clickies, and I don't get hit often.
With the US providing so much more hp in stacks of 50, spending 4+ AP on 3rd and 4th tier Toughness Enhancements just seems silly.
Am I wrong? Any Paladins out there with 1200+ hp currently dying? I know Im not, with my healing amp, self healing, and recharging LoH, I find myself healing other party members to provide assistance.
I can run into a mob, drop intimidate and shield block, hit my LoH to help the entire party with a little suport and be just fine.
Is this the new way of the Paladin?
