I've been playing a paladin since I started DDO but I've never really learned anything about tanking. Now that the tanking scene is dead, I figured it must be the best time to start learning the skill . I have my free basic LR still available on my half elf pure paladin. So I'm going to request a build.
Here are the constraints: Since it's only a plain LR, she'll stay half elf and pure paladin. She's presently level 26. I need to save 11 ap for racial stuff. I'm requesting advice on stats, feats, and enhancements.
She's on her third paladin life (so 2 pally past lives with +10% Healing amp) and a 36 point build.
Her tomes are:
She's presently specced for TWF with Khopeshes, but she mostly fights with Stars of Day (she has a nice Radiance set), and I have a couple special metal bastard sword crafting blanks in the bank so I could easily switch exotic weapons. I don't think she has much in the way of good shields (good = anything above around level 13 or 14), but I think I can scrounge an eHard Bulwark of the Storm's Fist. She also has some epic two handed weapons: an epic Antique Great Axe, a Breach, and all the parts to epic a SoS (except the base item).
As far as hit points are concerned, she has lootgen +8 Constitution bracers of +40 False Life, +3 Insightful Constitution, vitality in her armor and an unslotted extra +20 vitality augment. She also has the Draconic Vitality feat.
My Cannith crafting is around 120 in all schools, so I can craft "whatever" might still be useful from crafting sources.
Along with the statting, some really basic suggestions on gear that would help with tanking would be nice. As far as threat goes, the one item in my bank I see that gives her an Incite Bonus is Fabricator's Bracers. I know I need a shield for her. She has the PDK set with a bonded Embrace of the Spider Queen with +3 Insightful Constitution. "Have heavy armor, a shield, and a bastard sword, plus Incite" is where my tiny store of gearing knowledge for tanks runs out.
Any advice on this would be appreciated.
