Hullo everyone,

I currently have a damage-dealing Paladin who has done some epic content. I have a friend who wants to start playing DDO, and I wanted to roll a palatank. I would have TR'ed into a tank but I do not have enough tokens atm and I don't really want to keep him waiting.

So the idea was to roll a 32 points DoS human paladin, using bastard sword & shield (I am aware khopesh is better, but I'll never use these weapons,
they absolutely do not fit my paladin style).

In terms of items, I guess I will have time to think, but so far here's what I thought :

Level 1 :

Strength : 15
Dexterity : 8
Constitution : 18
Intelligence : 8
Wisdom : 8
Charisma : 15

I'd spend all my leveling points into strength.
I am aware dex is needed for AC, but as much as I'd like to, I'm having issues knowing how much dex I'd really need.

In terms of feats :

Shield Mastery
Bastard sword proficiency
Improved critical : slashing
Improved shield mastery

Still have to ponder a bit about enhancements, but that's what I thought of.

Thoughts and comments would be welcome.
