View Full Version : A Pally Duo

<DIV>Last night I was about to ding 29 and noticed a fellow pally in my guild about to ding 28.  We were both in TS3 so I shot him a tell to group with me so we could finish faster (was getting late).</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I main tanked with my guildie warding me and throwing in a heal here and there (rarely required).  We decided to alternate HOs to determine the value of its usefulness.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The sequence:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>- I would start an HO, he would kick up the combat wheel and I would taunt</DIV> <DIV>- He would start an HO (a split second after we completed the first one) and either of us would kick up the combat wheel with me taunting again (Blinding Light if the counter on Inflame wasn't reset yet).</DIV> <DIV>- Start over</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>We were near tower 4 killing green ^^ skellies which I can now solo, but our power usage (mana) was very very minimal and we could hit several mobs in a row with no downtime and we actually earned some pretty fast XP this way.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>At any rate, I just wanted to share the fun experience of two paladins working together with machine gun HOs.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Additionally, I would like to recommend to all paladins that do not HO that much to launch them in your groups.  The fighter profession in my opinion, seems to open the most significant series of HOs possible between the most number of combat professions.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I regularly duo with a Swashbuckler and together we have fine tuned the HO process into very simply steps with amazing results and extremely minimal power use.  I love doing the HO sequences with my Swashbuckler friend but it's always cool hearing your paladin buddy casting so many of the spells you know and recognize by sound(card) from your daily play.  It requires almost 0 coordination on the pally duo and is quite fun <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Thanks,</DIV> <DIV>Kalen</DIV>

<DIV>Good job San,  myself and another same lvl pally in my guild where grouped last night,  did a real good job for the hour that we duoed,  never thought about the HO switching,  will have to try that next time we duo again, will prolly make things quicker.  I do notice how we are doing very little power usage for a 100+ hit though,  perhaps throw in the ocasional oath strike for the DOT</DIV>

<DIV>Well I'm sure it's slightly different now with the HO changes.  However, pre patch we could rifle off HO after HO with very minimal coordination (to avoid killing the HO which isn't much of an issue post patch) and we had wonderful success.  We typically smashed oath strike and omen of battle along with my two taunts.  I was the only pally taunting though at the time.  If my Inflame wasn't reset I would use Blinding Light and we ran like a well oiled engine.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Thanks,</DIV> <DIV>Kalen</DIV><p>Message Edited by SanJun on <span class=date_text>02-03-2005</span> <span class=time_text>03:35 PM</span>

What is the EVIL side equal to this class, as far as healing and taunting?
