Armour: Viper: 1 skill + Faster cast
rings + amu: all with 10% fastercast
boots: Walterwalk life + dex(for blocking)
Helm: Rockstopper / Gaze for the DR.
Belt: String DR again.

Inv: life charms.

Stats: str, dex enuff 4 equip + max blocking
energy: 0
Vit: the rest

Skills: all in FoH + Holybolt...

a) FoH is a timered/non-spammable spell, meaning you have to wait for 25 frames after you cast it once. FCR only helps in reducing the animation length, and it's not worth sacrificing other mods to make you casting a couple of frames faster.

b) Holy bolt only increases the Holy bolt part damage of Fist of Heaven, much better to invest points in holy shock. Last time I checked, players are NOT considered as Undeads.

c) And you are NOT using conviction aura?

d) I suggest you head to Paladin forum and read some FAQ threads or Strategy guides. As of now, your FoHadin will have little success against any decent dueler.

I think you missed pretty much everything. Do yourself a favor and go to the Paladin forum.

Hints: FoH without Conviction is less than useless, players are not undead, and 42 is way below optimum level for this build.
