    Of course full breakdowns will be included when I get better gear, etc. and the goals I really want are achieved.

    The biggest thing I can say is to use all things that boost Cha before hitting Divine Might for a bigger number. Even looking at what I have now, I could have made it better with a Yugo Cha Pot and a higher then +7 Cha item. But, as I said, this is a work in progress and will be updated as I level and obtain ellusive better gear.

    And HJEALS are centered on MEH! Stay Close!

    How do you use Divine Might on this build with 2 levels of Paladin?

    Until you get lvl 4 Paladin you don't get Turn Undead so how do you get the Divine Might to charge up?

    Tried this in live and even with using the Extra Turns my Divine Might Charges are always at 0 with 2 lvls of Pali ...

    I am using the FvS Enhancement, not the Paladin one, which uses spell points and not Turns.

    Ah thanks - i'm not 100% up to scratch on the new enhancements

    I have 3x FS lives coming up for my Wizard (3 PLs here already) to max out spell pen and I really enjoy melee FVS builds

    I TRd yesterday and went 4 Pally (already 4 Pal 2 Fvs) but for the next 2 lives will go either 2 Pali or 3 (for the save bonuses)

    I have a FvS melee WF build (based on the old soul survivor build) that I am umming and ahing over what to do with post the enhancement pass (pure level 16 at the moment, still have the +20 lr heart). 2 monk for evasion and 2 feats seems nice, possibly even a deeper splash to 6 for shadow veil. Anyone care to do a rundown on a 16/2/2 or a 12/6/2 split? Otherwise I'm going to have to break out the spreadsheets again, and that's just going to end badly for everyone

    EDIT: Also, anyone done any testing with the new tree yet?

    I thought alot about deeper splashes but in the end that depends on what you want to do with the build. For me I still wanted a character that would be able to provide raid/group healing while putting out respectable DPS, that could stand on the front line and not cumble under a few hits.

    Under those restrictions the 12/6/2 gets ruled out. That is under most conditions just a self-surviving melee divine that could throw spot heals at best. And, would restrict you to handwrap use. As you wouldn't be centered with a big greataxe without Kensei enhancements so you would not be able to maintain shadow veil.

    The 16/2/2 split while gaining evasion and two feats means wearing robes, which takes a hit on PRR, a loss of level 9 spells, and Wings. I've done both 18 FvS/2 monk and 18 FvS/2 Pal. In my experience saves are greater than evasion. There are more saves that you need to make then just those that allow for no damage on a reflex save.

    That really left 18/2 as a sweet spot for splits IMO.

    I haven't been able to play with the new Warpriest Tree so far, but I've been reading up on it. Some good, some bad. I would have preferred a Haste Boost over gaining Haste as a spell for one and would've liked more options for Diety weapons. But, it's better for a build like this over what we currently have in game atm.

    Thanks for the response, that all makes a lot of sense. I think I'll wait until the next patch to try out the new tree, take him up to 18 pure, and then see what takes my fancy

    no problem. Honestly, delaying more detail into this build until I see the live version of war priest. It probably won't change alot, but some things for sure. Once that gets released I should be capped again and be able to fill in the details.

    I'm giving serious consideration to this build and have a FvS sitting at 16. Since War Priest came live today I'm hoping for an update *rubs hands together in anticipation*

    I've been waiting for Warpriest to come out as well.

    OP has been updated with many more details, including enhancements.

    Sure.

    Level 1 FvS
    Levels 2 and 12 Paladin
    Rest FvS

    You could delay the second Pal level until 14 if you want Blade Barrier sooner, even with mobs saving most the time on a wis dumped build it's still very useful for fast heroic leveling.

    Np. And, yeah pretty much any Two-hander you can get will work. I think I leveled using Canifex, Xuum, some other random great axes I had laying around. EAGA, ESOS, and Cleaver are all top contenders once you get into epics. Even Drow greataxe or Chained Soldier can be a decent substitute while working for others.

    So I converted my warrior that I hated over to this build and am loving it. Any recommendations for a completionist replacement feat? I'll be 18 before too long and so far simply shifted the feat list down.

    So I take it you play this build a lot like a uber healing Paladin?

    What kind of spells you focus on?
    Any of your attack type spells land very well?
