         3.About Paladin
        =================
    
           It is a GOOD choice if you pick Paladin.
           Paladin is such a good character in D2 at my opinion. The aura is
           useful and it will also give benefit to your party members and
           hirelings in certain distance. In battle net, I think there is
           no one dont want to make party with Paladin.
    
           For those people who not using Paladin, make a TRY on it.

         ( For the point column down there shows the point I advise to pump
           in that skill. * means pump as more as possible)

         Comment       : This skill is not good. It damage self to do damage
                         and the stats is weaker than Charge. It is better
                         using Charge. It is only useful when you fight
                         in Act 1 (Normal). I just put 1 point in it to
                         learn the next skill.

         Comment       : USELESS!! The stun length is short and the damage
                         is weak. Beside that, the stun attack isn't very
                         effective in Boss Fight. It is better save some
                         point to others.

         Comment       : This skill maybe help you a bit in Act 1 but after
                         you enter Nightmare or Hell it is TOTALLY USELESS.
                         Plus it only damage Undead only!

                         Best using it in Boss Fight with Holy Freeze.

                         Meditation or Mana Stealing item.
                         Remember, you can only use Charge when you have a
                         distance with the monster or else it just like
                         normal attack.

         Comment       : A good skill. Added some Elemental Damage and it
                         is very useful against 'Immune To Physical Attack'
                         monsters.Best combine with Convinction that lower
                         enemies' resistance.
                         But its attack speed is slower than Charge and
                         not effective on Immune/Resist Magic monsters.

         Comment       : I am not very interesting in this skill. Seems
                         it cant 100% convert a monster (at skill level 20)
                         and it duration alwalys remain at 16 seconds.
                         I think it is better to kill the mosnter than
                         try to use Conversion.
                         (I think this skill is only has 1 advatage that
                          it can slow down your enemies. But it is not

                           defence(Shield) and chances of blocking.
                           Another good thing is you can use it with
                           auras. It is more like Shiver Armor than
                           aura. Remember to cast Holy Shield anytime
                           when you are fighting. It helps you very much.
                           Beside that, this skill didn't take a action
                           space like auras.

           Comment       : I dont like this skill very much. Seems it
                           has the cast delay and only did heavy damage
                           when the skill level is high. Beside that,
                           Charge can do more damage when you equip a
                           strong weapon(Nightmare or Hell).
                           *Although it is not my favourite, it is very
                            useful when you are fighting with many undead
                            enemies. If you want to use this skill,add
                            as many as possible.

                            the monster but it is very useful when duel
                            with other player exspecially when a paladin
                            allies with a amazon. The paladin just run

             (Supplied by Depthcharge)
    
             Act 5 is the new act in expansion. Its terrain is snow and
             that's what I like the most.Map size is just as big as
             act 1 and 2, rewards are crazy a lot here, probably Blizzard
             is afraid we get sick of the game and so they make a lot a lot
             a lot of rewards here. My favourite act and it is now the best
             training ground.

              A class-specific item(from Anya)
    Note     :Continue your journey on the Frigid Highlands and eventually
              you will find yourself in the Arreat Plateau. Keep going until
              you reach Crystalline Passage and enter it. In there, there
              are 2 ways, Frozen River and Glacial Trail. Enter Frozen River
              and save Anya. Then go back and talk to Malah to get a potion
              that can release Anya. After giving the potion to Anya, head
              back to the town and talk to Malah and Anya for your reward.
    
    QUEST IV :Betrayal of Harrogath
    Available:Talk to Anya
    Mission  :Kill Nihlathak at Halls of Vaught
    Reward   :Personalize one of your stuff by Anya
    Note     :After talking to Anya, she will open a portal to Nihlathak's
              temple. Wander around the temple and eventually you will find
              a waypoint at Halls of Pain. Keep going and you will reach
              Halls of Vaught, where Nilathak is situated. Kill him. For
              strategy, read the Bosses Guide section.
              The reward here is really nice, the feeling when you have
              personalize your favourite stuff is fun. In this case, I have
              personalized my Silks of The Victor Ancient Armor. So, my
              armor now called "Depthcharge's Silk of The Victor Ancient
              Armor". Sweet.
    
    QUEST V  :Rite of Passage
    Available:Talk to Qual-Kehk
    Mission  :Defeat 3 Ancients to prove yourself worthy
    Reward   :One level up
    Note     :OK, back to Crystalline Passage and now take the Gracial Trail
              exit. Kepp on going until you reach Frozen Tundra. From there,
              you can find a path that leads to the Ancients' way. Ancients'
              way will lead to the Arreat Summit, find and click on the
              Altar of the Heavens and 3 of the statue will become alive.
              Beat them without a death or going back to town cuz this will
              reset them. I have written my strategy in the Bosses Guide
              section, read it if you need them. After you have beaten them,
              in normal, if your level is same or higher than level 20, you
              will upgrade 1 level, if lower, you gain no rewards. For
              Nightmare, you gotta have at least level 40 to gain the bonus.
              For Hell, you must be at least level 60 to get the rewards.
    
    QUEST  VI:Eve of Destruction
    Available:After beating the Ancients
    Mission  :Kill Baal
    Reward   :Some stuff dropped by Baal
    Note     :Enter Worldstone Keep. Explore all of them and you will find
              Baal sitting there in the Throne of Destruction, teasing you.
              Click on him and you will find nothing, so that means you
              can't fight him now. Baal's kinda cool here, cuz he don't
              fight wiht you first, instead, he will throw something that
              looks a ball and a group of his minions appear, and one of
              them is a unique. I can't remember  exactly how many rounds
              there are, probably 5, then after he has run out of minions,
              he will go through the portal to the Worldstone Chamber.
              Follow him, and kill him there. Strategy of mine is written
              in the same section.
              Then Tyrael will appear and talk to him, he will open a portal
              that sends you to a safer place. Enjoy the cinematic, though
              it's kinda disappointed.
              Well, boys and girls, it's time for Nightmare again..........
    
    
    
    
    
    
           ==================
            7.Tips and Hints
           ==================
    
              A)Skill
                i)Hotkey Combination
    
                  The Hotkey Combination is very important for Paladin
                  for his Auras. If you do it well, you will be able to
                  use combination of skill you like.
    
                  Below are the combination of hotkey I suggested.
    
                  F1--VENGEANCE(LEFT)       F5 TO F7--ALL THE AUARS
                  F2--CONVINCTION
                  F3--ZEAL (LEFT)
                  F4--CHARGE(LEFT)
                  F8--Holy Shield (RIGHT)
    
                ii)Skill Combination (Paladin Type)
    
                  a)For fighting minions
    
                   1)Zeal + Throns/Fanaticism (Zealot)
    
                     The combination is best Vs minions. Since Zeal can
                     do multiple attack and Throns can damage the enemies
                     who hit you. Fanaticism add your speed and attack
                     rating. I use this combination to fight in
                     Moo Moo Farm and it is totally no promblems fighting
                     with the cows.Of course,this include using Holy Shield.
    
                   2)Smite + Fanaticism + Holy Shield (Smiterdin)
    
                     Stun all the enemies and slow down them. Fanaticism is
                     for stronger the Smite. Holy Shield here is for some
                     defence and + damage.
    
    
                  b)For fighting Unique Monters and Bosses
    
                    1)Vengeance + Conviction (Avenger)
    
                      Best using it when fighting with moster that Immune
                      To Physical Attacks. Vengeance does the elemental
                      damage and Conviction lower the resistance and make
                      more damage. Hmm... a fantastic combination.
    
                    2)Charge + ?? (Any type of auras)
    
                      Charge is a very unique skill for Paladin. Its fast
                      attack speed and knockback ability make you able to
                      do many attack in a short time. Beside that, Charge
                      can combination with any aura u like due to the
                      situation you faced. A good combine.
    
                  c)For Dueling with Other Player
    
                    1)Charge + Holy Freeze (Chargerdin)
    
                      Charge is used for it fast attack speed and its
                      knockback. Holy Freeze can slow down your opponents
                      although he/she has equiped item that contains
                      'Cannot Be Frozen'. You can beated your opponents

                    1)Blessed Hammer + Concentration (Hammerdin)
    
                      1 word, Suckz. Low accuracy + low damage, a useless
                      combination. Mostly cant hit the enemies, sure losses
                      in duel.(*Note, Fanaticism dont work with Bleesed
                      Hammer in 1.09)
