So guys,

I've decided to ask for some feedback/advice.

I'm working on my pally atm (1380 AAs), getting him AA-equipped so he can start soloing HoT/Feer when the mobs don't con yellow/red to him.

I'm hoping, that if someone does take some time to review where I have my AAs invested, that someone could highlight some AAs I'm just not focusing on that I should be to be more DPS/Tanky (and even healy..) solo-capable. So thanks in advance for the feedback (and yes, listing all my AAs did take some very annoying time.. lol)

This is a game for a mature player, you want easy, want to curse a lot, want to grief, cheat, pretty much ruin the game? Go play World of Warcraft, cause we don't want you.

CA/CS - I believe you can get higher than 24 at lv 82 (maybe not?) but I can't remember. Max these for 82 if they are not already.
General Sturdiness is cheap hp. max this for your level
Armor of Wisdom - max this for your level. It's deceptive because you won't see much of a change on your displayed ac, but it will make a big difference in how you mitigate hits.
Shield Block - max this for your level
Armor of the Inquisitor - max this for your level. If you're feeling like this is getting expensive, just remember that the ac, and +healing, and duration all go up with every level. It's worth it.
Lay on Hands and Hand of Piety - Keep these at max for your level. LH's heal over time component scales nicely once you have it. HoP stops critting on the base heal at 23 but adds a heal over time component. I find I use it a lot with it's 16min refresh.
Steadfast Will - keep this maxxed as you level up. Eventually you're 100% immune to melee stun.

Overall you look very balanced for 82. If you see yourself always soloing then you may want to max your heal and dps aa's every level you can, but I would focus on defensives till 87 or so.

You may want to get Tactical Mastery once it's available. Also Hastened Deflection is something I wish I invested in sooner.

Good luck

I have begun working on my paladin aa's now that I am playing Jonwin again. This list will be helpful to me now that I am at 75. Was going to grind out about 200 before leveling up. But then I have only 221 right now.

One question though, does Fury of Magic add to my Slay Undead proc's damage?

No. Fury of Magic does not increase slay size or frequency. It only affects crit chance of our nukes.

Haha thanks. I think I'll go at it till I can't handle the grind anymore lol.

Congratulations for enduring the grind. Smiley: smile Smiley: clap

The undead in LP probably seem like slicing cake now?

Yther Ore.

Not sure, it's been 3 or 4 years I think. When I quit the level cap was 75 I believe. Had a 68 Pally with less than 100 AAs, and a 55 shaman.

About where i stood haha... But when you add those AAs in, the real power of the paladin starts to unlock, swinging for 20000+ procs on undead mobs... Its just amazing haha.

My question was also going to be if the spell crits also worked on some of our weapon procs? I think I have one point in it on Winjon as he got a spell crit casting Holy might.

If the proc is a spell we can cast normally as a spell gem, then our AA affects the proc. For something else like "strike of venom", the mod3 on gear "Spell Dmg" will affect it.

For Holy Might, you had actually cast the spell, so it wasn't a proc. Therefore your AAs apply. (I think I'm reading your question right. I don't see a weapon listed on Alla that is Paladin useable and procs Holy Might)

Yes Holy might was cast so I know it was a casting crit.

Well I've taken a more methodical approach than I had originally thought to, By only farming AA's in the general TAB.

I'm gonna go for either 2000 AAs, or max all my (fighting related) AAs for 82, whichever comes last.

1591 assigned AAs, 2 aas free atm.

The updated AAs are:

General Tab

25/45 Combat Agility
25/43 Combat Stability
22/35 Delay Death
15/20 Discordant Defiance
2/5 Earthern Alacrity
2/5 Earthern Allure
7/25 General Sturdiness
2/5 Corruption Prot

Class
2/9 Flurry
