    Default Sword & Board Tank-Paladin

    Hi all,

    that's a build i got together for a Paladin i'm currently running up to 20. The planing is of a mostly pure (18/2 split) Paladin, some might say a 15/3/2 split is better for a tank, but i just don't see a Paladin with more then 2 lvls splash as a Paladin

    It's a 36 pt build with +5 tome to all abilitys but would work for lower pt build too (34 take away 2 pts of charisma, 32 1 str, 1 dex)

    Why drow instead of, say, human for +1 feat & heal amp? Apart from SR (which is currently bugged), I don't see what you're getting from drow.

    Nah, that's cool, I got a couple of old drow pallies I need to figure out how to "redeem" in the new Enhancement system.

    I just TR'd mine, ran him to 16/2, decided last second to take the final levels as fighter. I attempted a few solo EE runs and performed well enough to tell me that if I could multi-task better (not good at running LD piano skills and watching health bar at same time) the toon was capable of soloing easy EE quests at 20... which ain't bad. As soon as he hit 21 and I figured out my 2 duergar war axes went missing I TR'd (was planning to anyway, but not until after some EE runs to test the build better). I just started a Ginsu life and while I expect to do mad damage I have no doubt that I'll miss the superb self healing and saves. I wasn't built so much as a tank as S&B DPS though. I didn't bother with any AC enhancements at all.

    Should be a fine build, and easily modified to switch to a more DPS role if you find tanking role unsatisfying.

    Thumbs up

    Wow, I just made a post asking for a build just like this. I should have read further down in the forum and I would have seen you pretty much answered it, lol.

    I too have a Drow Paladin, level 9, and wasn't sure how to spec him. I really wanted to wear heavy armor, but I can see the appeal of taking two monk levels for the two feats and Evasion. I guess I would just have get by using light armor.

    Does Evasion work with a shield? I know it requires light armor....Thanks
