I'm noob to Paladin, but considering TRing something to it. As far as gear goes, are there any blades (short sword/long sword/bastard sword/etc.) that mesh particularly well with a basic sword and board Paladin build? Anything that particularly "clicks" with enhancements/spells/etc.?
If so, what's good to go after at particular levels?
So, things like Retribution (http://ddowiki.com/page/Retribution) with all the Lawful Good alignment damage and Divine Vengeance (http://ddowiki.com/page/Itemivine_Vengeance) which ties some power into Paladin Levels look interesting... but--from those who are Paladin fans--what works best for a sword and board paladin?
