Subject description: Seems viable
 

This build will be Hell rushed, so 41 skills and 160 stats.
The breakpoints desired are 86 FHR, 30 FCR, and at least 7 frame smite (I think 6 is possible but I
don't know how much IAS with Fanat I'd need).


For stats-
Strength - 65 for Nat boots
Dex - Enough for max block with up'd Swordback
Every other point to Vit

Skills-
Holy Shield: 7
Smite: 18
Holy Shock: 7
Fanat: 1
Prereqs: 8

Gear-
Helm: I've been trying to decide if it's better to go 2 combat or 1 pal skills, not sure if the boost
in auras is worth it or not. Other mods would be life, mana, etc. Socket with Psaphs.
Amulet: Same as the helmet.
Armor: Viper with a Psaph
FoH weapon set: +FoH +Conv war scepter Honor//Spirit Akaran Rondache
Smite weapon set: +Smite +Fanat war scepter with Shaels (here I have a problem of how much IAS gets to
6 frame Smite?)//Up'd Swordback socketed with a Pdiamond
Rings: SoJs
Gloves/Belt: Death's.
Boots: Sander's

Stashed items: Nat boots for FoH/cold sorcs, GToes for shape Druids and Singers, maybe some buff gear
(though I hate buffing). Res charms and such.

Inv: Life/mana, res/life or mana, and all the fhr charms I need for 86 with the FoH set.

Some problems I foresee-
Damage. I'm not really sure the damage on either side is going to be fantastic,
though FoH is primarily for hitting runners.
Mana. Lack of Insight worries me a bit, hence my fascination with mana from gear and charms.
Life. It's not going to be very high. And since I lack any DR whatsoever, it seems rather glassy.

Maybe with a few corrections it will be a good build though. Thoughts? Criticisms? Any ideas are appreciated!

Also, first post.

IAS Calculator

With a level 5 fanat, you need 54% ias with a warscepter.

Regarding your smite weapon. Fanat and smite can not spawn on the same weapon.

As for mana problems. If you can get Fanat on your smite scepter, that will save you 3 points which can be used to skill meditation. Or find a foh or smite scepter with meditation.

As for combat vs. paladin, +combat will benefit you more UNLESS you need +1 skill for fanat for a breakpoint, or if you opt to skill meditation over fanat.

Rest of your gear looks OK. The only thing I'd change is drop the Death's combo. Only use it for cold builds. Other options are better overall. Should definately have a String of Ears for the DR%/MDR. Glove options would include Bloodfists (10ias, fhr, life); Sanders (20ias, life, small def boost); Frostburns/Magefists (mana/mana regen)

Well, it's been a really long time since I decided to build this thing, and everything was entirely finished and ready to go. However, I don't have my account anymore (which is due to my long break). So, I threw together the actual thing in SP with almost identical gear (the charms in SP are a bit better).

What did I learn? FoH damage was higher than I expected, and smite damage was lower. However, I had so much mana that I could duel forever with no problems. My life wasn't great, so straight up attacks usually didn't work. All in all, it was successful, and fun. I still think I prefer the Plaguezon (it just really meshes with my style), but I would say if you want something new, give it a shot.
