Nice ... funnily enough this is near the same build I just planned out for Wanda's relevel ... albeit she also has a 14ish wisdom score, (I think she had help from a tome) ... thus allowing her to get access to 4th (Max) level Paladin spells, and the awesome Holy Sword spell .... ....

I can see this build also being very powerful against undead via the high turning ability granted by charisma... and can have some very nice AC if ride skill is maxed out and Bonus Feat: Mounted Combat taken on an item ....

Interesting build idea, I personally wouldn't be able to play a paladin without at least 14wisdom to open up all the spells. Even if I barely use lvl2-4 spells, situationally they are very nice, and I'd feel as though I'm not playing a paladin without them. Plus dropping a nova of life while surrounded by a mob of undeads is too much fun Smile

RustyDios, you mention "the awesome Holy Sword," could you explain why its so awesome? I've read the description, and it seems if I already have a +5 weapon that Holy Sword does not add all that much. Although I havent much considered the dispell part of the spell, not sure how it works.

The divine damage. Outside of divine might and divine wrath, there's no way to get divine damage on your weapon besides a custom voucher weapon.

And what makes divine damage so great is, not only is it rare to find divine resistance on enemies (actually can't think of any at the moment!), but some enemies (demons) are vulnerable to it even, so that divine damage on your weapon does a bit extra damage.

I see, so is that 1d6 really THAT helpful? Or is it that coupled with other benefits it becomes awesome?

How does the dispel work? Does it dispel harmful effects that are on my PC, or beneficial effects off enemies?

Yes, IMO extra damage that is not likely to be resisted is very helpful. The faster you can kill something, the less of a threat it is to you Smile

From what I can tell the dispel part is basically a targeted "beholder anti-magic cone" .. it will strip EVERYTHING from the enemy .. including stuff not normally dispellable.. going against a horde of dragons/dracoliches that are making your allies afraid , fear aure stripped... in fact I think there are a few "very powerful aura's " that this will strip, though I'm yet to test it ... ..
And it's a 50% chance to activate not the stated 25% .... ...

An extra 1d6 divine damage vs. evil, nope not much in Aenea can resist that ... and most of Aenea's bad guys are all evil ..... very useful if weapon doesn't have it (and unless it's custom it likely doesn't, I can only think of three weapons in Aenea that do...and even then without going and checking those weapons I'm not 100% sure they do... ) ....

+5 enhancement is VERY useful if your weapon is only a +1 etc.. thats +5 to attack AND +5 slashing/bludgeoning/piercing damage (whichever the base weapon uses).....

Works on ANY weapon (so your paladin wouldn't NEED to be focused to the Greatsword ~ currently the only Aenean weapons I've found to be Avengers are Greatswords, thus channeling you to use them... ).....

And SR16, also useful against a number of Aenean spellcasters, even more so if you haven't got SR from any other source.. (it's the equivalent of wearing an Amulet of the Master!) ...

All that buffing greatness from ONE spell, that lasts 1rd/lv ... so a lev 40 Pally is getting 40rds right ? (I'm kinda asking here, because I know I might be wrong, spells still confuse me!) .... thats nothing to scoff at in a fight...

And a divine spell, no need to worry about pesky ASF in the middle of a hectic fight, just get out of AoO range and fire it off for all those extra's (though a 30ish concentration should help negate the AoO) ....

Your also able to do this from 14-15th level, which is likely to be alot sooner then you'll have a +5weapon (BoM enhanced), SR items, Mords style dispelling and extra damages without having to think about it , whilst your still wacking the enemy for six... ... it can make the rest of the fighting for your entire career alot more manageable ... ...

Did that capture how awesome a spell I think it is for Pally's ??

OK, I see why Holy Sword is awesome.

Personally, I'm still going to fill my slots with mostly nova of life, theres just nothing that can beat insta-killing all them annoying vampire/zombie/other undeadites in the immediate vicinity Smile maybe if I had more wisdom, and by extension more cast slots I would include a sword or two, but with just 3 casts sword doesn't seem like the best option to me. Thats just me though..

(hence why I suggested wizard for that 1 level caster dip the other night, you can scribe up a bunch of holy sword scrolls for whenever you really need them Smile )

Ahhh, thats why she was talking about Wizard.... I didnt include scribe scroll in my reasoning.... and yes, it would be a phenomenal combo with Paladin spells.

I had actually advised going rogue or bard 1 level in order to get Tumble and UMD... so... considering scribe scroll...hrm.... yeah thats a toss up.

Maybe go bard 1 on level 39, and take scribe scroll as the level 39 feat? Get the best of both worlds that way.

Why not use a custom item ?.. Bonus Feat: Scribe Scroll is one of the few things a custom item can get that an in-game upgrade can't ... and for most items it's got an average price of 25k... Unless it's been banned without me knowning... this would allow you to remain a "Pure" Paladin...

... although you could also do a 15Pally, 1Brd, scribe hundreds of scrolls, then re-lev to 16Pally and continue on.... ...

.... Still damn fine build though ... ...
