I'm wrapping up my paladin of Auri-El character and am looking for opinions on how my next paladin should be played, in your opinions.

I had the flame tree down packed. Used mostly for role playing the character. It was a tone of fun getting more out of my enchantments and flame cloak.

I could fit Shock in and make it work....

I'm having a bit of trouble figuring out frost though. Maybe those of you who vote frost could contribute your reasoning...?

Hmm...flame is one vote less than shock. There must be something in missing....

its interesting to see frost isn't completely neglected.

I've always preferred shock spells to fire just because it's instant. I also think it fits better for a paladin as disintegration seems like a "purification" of something as opposed to simply burning something to death; seems more cruel to burn something to death as they try to run away than simply disintegrating it in a final blow.

Frost I couldn't justify at all for a paladin build because of it's nature. To freeze something to death seems slow and would arguably be also seen as cruel as fire because you paralyze them as you slowly drain them of the rest of their life; they're alive and see you slowly killing them, not at all holy.

"Okay, look. We both said a lot of things your going to regret but I think we can put our differences behind use. For science. You monster.

Use all three. Why?

Because certain enemies resist certain elements while others have weaknesses to them so by using all three elements you'll be able to most damage in any situation.

Ignore anyone who says otherwise...

EDIT: Heh, didn't see that you said you were playing a Paladin...(thought this was a magey type character).

Well, in that case ignore everything I said before and just use fire (does the most damage to Undead).

Ehhh, holy/cleansing/purifying fire fits more than shock imo.

I agree with Rebel, I see what you mean, however.

Humane kills it seems.

I would think that if someone invoked the wrath of a god, their death at the hand of the servant should not be humane.
