So on my third life ( previous two were favored soul and rogue) I am looking to do a paladin. I want to use a dwarven axe, heavy armor and shield mostly. My question is would it be more beneficial to stay pure for the capstone or splash in 2 fighter for the extra feats? How important is toughness? Could i skip that to make room for something else? I know the thf line is important to my dps but can i get by with just 2 ranks of it? Im not looking to be main tank, I just was looking for a sturdy build with decent dps.
All thoughts and suggestions will be appreciated.
