@Singular and carpone: I have to take back what I said earlier about 18/2 being the only options. Originally, I had thought I could get by without the FvS splash like before. But I've found the new quests are generally full of un-dangerous mobs which equates to a very drawn out slog, and there aren't as many shrines in the explorers like in GH.
Now, I'd probably recommend 18/2 FvS (group-oriented) or 16/2/2 FvS/Paladin (solo-oriented). Meteor and KD immunity will be missed, but FvS seems to be pretty essential for shiradi builds nowdays.
