What spells are most useful, and least useful? What armor and weapons should your paladin be seeking out?

I have a 61 paladin and was looking for some advice on the best order to spend my AA points. I was hoping someone could tell me the %increase one gets with the "Cridical hits vs. undead" AA.

Thanks for the help
Its good to be crazy, if you call this world normal.

I wouldnt worry about the crit AAs at your level (I wouldnt even think of doing AAs until 65 personally). You should first work on your defensvies, such as combat stability. Remember, you are a tank/meatshield, not a DPS machine.

The answer to your question is you need 6 AA's in General. I recommend Run Speed 1-3 and Regen 1-3. Next you need 12 AAs in Archetype. since you need Combat Fury 3 to get Slay Undead, you could go straight there with CF 1-3 (2,4 and 6 pts respectively). This is the direct route there starting with zero AAs.

That said I do not recommend it. The % increase in crits is not worth foregoing other AAs at your level. I would, and did max our=t Natural Durability first. Then work on Combat Stability 1-2 and Combat Agility 1-2. after I got those I got the Combat Fury 3 and then SU1.

There just isn't enough undead content in the game to warrant this being your primary focus.

Thanks for the responces- I typically pay with a 58 shammy and the team combo is really working well. I will work on the AAs you listed as after looking at the overall advantages I agree they will serve "us" better. When the shammy reaches 61 we will both begin working to get to lvl 65 before we return to AAs.

Any advice on the first 59th lvl AA for me to get?
(I have gotten the max stat boost for lvl 61 so all my stats but cha are 265 now unbuffed)

I currently am gaining an AA in about every 1.5 - 2 hours. Is this a good rate or could I do better?

Thanks for the help.
