    Hey guys finally getting my melee back into line and looking for help. Been lurking in treads learning a lot, and is the full paladin viable or do I need to splash bushido?

    Current skill set:
    110 mace fighting
    102.7 tactics
    96.4 parry
    105 anatomy
    100 healing
    70 chivalry

    I was thinking of going all 120 in these skills but I've read that anatomy more then gm is worthless. Any help is very welcome on what I should look for in suits ect. The chores of relearning the game for returning vets lol. Thank you all in advance.

    You can read here about my paladin:
    http://stratics.com/community/threads/paladin-4-6.302270/

    The main advantage of having Bushido is Honor. It's allow you to do max damage even when you haven't a slayer weapon for a mob. But if you're not going to do peerless bosses solo than you usually have a super slayer weapon and can do well without Bushido.
    Bushido has other benefits: Evasion, Whirlwind, Confidence. But your chance to block with a shield will be lowered.

    Anatomy increase your damage. The difference between 100 and 120 anatomy is 10% Damage Increase that usually means you do 2.5% more damage.

    There is no a general advices like "this is better than that". It's depends on you race/budget/style/aims.

    Another positive effect of bushido is it adds to the 300points special move mana reduce cap.

    With your template, assuming you have 120 mace and parry you substract 5 points from manacost. If you had at least 60 bushido there the bonus would be 10. you could throw in another skill but as a macer there is no useful one (if youd use axes you could take lumberjacking for the mana reduce bonus instead)

    Armor mods you should consider stamina inc, mana inc, lower mana cost, and hp incr. to the max. Then i recommend reaching hci and dci cap. There are plenty of options including some nice artifacts. Especially mace and shield reading glasses are useful because of hit lower defense on em

    1. Select between metal and wood.
    Wood is much more expensive but you can get 6 mods per item.

    2. Decide what weapons you are going to use
    Calculate how much SSI and Stamina you need and decide how you get this value

    3. Decide how much FC/FCR you want to have

    4. Decide what artifacts you will use on misc slots. Decide how much resists do you want (you can increase/decrease the cap with refinement). Do you need Damage Eater. And so on.


    p.s. A standard item has 5 HCI/DCI reforged 8 MI + 8 SI + 8 LMC + 5 HPI/15 resists

    Ok aside from the stats....

    Is it just me or dont you think that there is sth wrong with an elf, crying out to be a pure paladin and running around with a wooden armor? :)

    My view of a pure paladin is bit different.. He or she is more a glorious warrior (so no elf ;-)) with a shining metal armor and valorious shield (probably no sign of chaos) smiting evil demons

    Lol you do make valid points, could throw in some RP to make it work, ie Elf who embraces the life yet the path of a true paladin has faded over the years so all they have to go off is books and pictures, as the paladins of Luna are corrupt

    If you use a shield and go without Bushido then mace fighting is a good skill to have.

    I can't understand why do you need to convert to elf. I don't see much difference between elves and humans. May be there is a sense to convert to a garg.

    You can tank Navrey consistently with 120 Bushido, 120 Parry and 45 DCI. At 100/100/45 you'll be ok most of the time, but bandages would help. Of course I am healing with vamp form. You may be ok with a high HLL weapon.

    War axes are maces and don't get lamberjack bonus.

    Yep that's why I'm using them. I meant sword and board instead of bushido. I can tank navery well enough only gets dicey if I don't parry a few times in a row
