Self explanatory i guess :)
A good template for putting a Paladin together that can hunt some nice stuff alone. I've played for a long time, but i've been mostly RP'ing, and lately my girlfriend and I have been playing the game quite alot, hunting around. I have a swordsman with chivalry currently (115 swords) but not sure what else to take, and which skills specifically to use.

Paladins, played the proper role played way (i.e. no necromancy) can kill some pretty big things, but their talents stop at the top end of the game.
So a template which includes:
115 swords
100 tactics
100 healing
100 anatomy
115 parry
85 chivalry
85 focus
In a 700 point template can kill some awfully big things, including some of the prime hunting grounds like Miasma or Thrasher. The trick is to get the right weapons to go with your gear.

For example, if you use an arachnid slayer sword with no other properties, Miasma will use its mortal strike against you and you'll end up dead-in-a-hurry, but if you change arachnid to scorpion slayer, add in swing speed increase and life leech, you would do fairly decently against Miasma, with only a few "run away" times when remove curse or cleanse by fire get interrupted (fast cast 4 helps a lot there too!).

My favorite non-necromancy solo template is the bushido-paladin with:
115 swords
100 parry
115 bushido
100 tactics
100 healing
100 anatomy
70 chivalry(on a 700 skill point template, extra skill points are for parry)

This gives you the great bushido abilities of extra damage from perfection, confidence, counter attack and the best of all, lightning strike. This template can kill a lot more than the "pure" paladin template and doesn't compromise the paladin role-play image.

For ultimate power, take the previous template and replace either parry or healing with 100 points in necromancy and use vampire form. There is literally nothing in game that you can't kill alone with that template. (I had thought the Slasher of Veils or Stygian Dragon weren't really possible, but I've recently been proven wrong... I haven't killed them myself alone, so can't verify that 100%). But with necromancy and chivalry, you wind up in a role-played bind, as they're usually seen to work against each other.

For your "Ultimate" suggestion with chivalry and necro. What would you recommend for stats?
