Well after playing several Halfling rangers, and not quite loving them, I made a dex based Halfling rogue starter. I put Dex at 20 and Char at 16 for the start. No str.
So I went to Rogue three to get dex to damage on staffs, and have my first level of Paladin, heading for my second and the charisma added to saving rolls.
After playing him this far, I love the staff fighting. I realize, for most times, I do very little sneaking and have little patience for it. So I will concentrate on staff attacks. So that being said, knowing I will be more of a rush in where angels fear to tread approach, am I better taking at least 10 and maybe 13 levels of rogue for Imp Evasion and possible a second special, or is Imp Evasion not as good as the Pally spells and added Paladin abilities. The latter would be more of an Evasion Palidin build, which I read about, but none seem to be dex based, probably for good reason.
As additional information, I went down the undead killer line, as for flavor, I always play something that has that as his mission, as a bonus, there are plenty of them to fight. I'm in the Catacombs now.
Any suggestions appreciated.
