So to start this off, I'm returning with a good chunk of gold in my bank account (about 50-60m) so if needed, I can buy a few things, though I was planning on spending as little as I can to start with. My template for this character is thus: Chivalry Parrying Swords Tactics Anatomy Healing (whatever) Dex 120 Str 90 Int 15 Elf I don't plan on buying the 120 scrolls until I'm able to use them, and even then I may not get them for all of these. This guy is going to be a straight up Paladin. Big broad-sword, heavy armor, tower shield, armored horse (if there is one)... the whole schebang. My big issue that I'm having so far is finding out what kind of gear I should use. Right now I'm using a virtue suit that I had in my bank, and it has the nice perk of not needing to be repaired. But my big question comes when I hit 100 (or 120) swordsmanship in a few weeks (months?). What kind of stats should I aim for and is there any specific items that I should include in my suit. I want to be able to solo the bigger guys in a few months, if possible. I already planned to try to get my Dex/Str up to 150 with gear, and so I may end up lowering my Dex and raising my Str if I can. Int I'm not too worried about, I've got about 35 mana and if needed I can throw another 5 points into Int. I may also get a +25 stat scroll, which should solve that problem entirely with 5 more in Int and the rest in Str. Let me know if there is anything I left out that you need to help with this guy. Thanks for the help!
