Hello! Some of you may know of me from my "Need Wizard Advice" thread, this thread, however, is different because am seeking advice about paladins this time. The paladin build that am trying to come up with is a survivalist-damage-dealer, which is a character that can deal damage and survive an onslaught of enemies. Here is what I came up with thus far. I am aiming for Epic Elite Content.
Main Stats: Str, Con, Cha (at character creation, their maxed at 16 each and dump the remaining points into Wis)
Normal Character Feats:
Improved Shield Mastery
Exotic Weapon Proficiency: Bastard Sword
Improved Shield Bashing
Tower Shield Proficiency*(1)
Paladin Class Feats:
Follower of the Sovereign Host
Bulwark of Defense
Epic Destiny Feats:
Main Epic Destiny: Unyielding Sentinel*(3)
Heal(extra positive spellpower)
*1. The reason why Tower Shield Proficiency is included as a 9th normal feat is because my paladin has the Madstone Aegis, which gives the feat.
*2. The Great Ability is only taken if any of my paladin's stats (as described above except Wis) are uneven at max level, this also includes temporary buffs.
*3. The reason why I picked Unyielding Sentinel is because it has survivalist perks and damage perks unlike Legendary Dreadnought which is mostly damage with few survivalist perks.
*4. My paladin has a +3 Intelligence tome, which will give him at least 12 skill points total for being a human.
My paladin also uses high Doublestrike chances.
I am open to suggestions. So please share your opinions about my current build.
