    Default Suggestions for my Reaver Builds (PvP and PvE)

    Can anyone offer up some insight into building a workable Reaver PvP build?

    Para 16/Reaver 36/WL 14
    In this build I have a reaver that is capable of dual-wielding, sacrificing his shield to output more damage. I chose Paragon for obvious reasons, mainly for offensive capabilities. I chose warlord for both super defensive capabilities (Armor, Dodge, and Block increase) but also the skill "Spotter's Order" which adds damage to DoTs with according attack points.

    I have my doubts, however, I added an increase to block with Warlord but since I'm not using a shield will it even work? Should I instead invest these points in another tree or talent?


    I also have a PvE build with some questions:

    RB 0/ Reaver 42/ Paladin 24
    Overall I think I did better with this build than with the PvP one, I dunno PvE is easier to make builds for I suppose.
    Anyways, basically this build takes all the AoE abilities of the Reaver and stacks them with the defensive capabilities of a Paladin. The RB is simply for magic protection, nothing more. But I was hoping someone could help me tweek and tune this build a bit for soloing. Also, could I turn this build into a PvP build?

    Thanks guys.

    Block is specifically shield only. Though the PvP soul has an ability you can get that lets you block without one.

    I've seen the PvP talent but I'm confused because the extra block talent for my build is located in the Warlord Soul Tree. Why would a class that wields a two-handed weapon have an increase to block in their soul tree if they can't use it?

    Just seems odd to me.

    Ok so I work on a Reaver/Paladin PvP build and ended up with this:
    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14031925/rif...17,5_&lang=eng

    Reaver 36/Paladin 16/ Warlord 14

    Warlord is used for ultra Defense and Spotter's Order
    Paladin is also defense oriented but specced in Light's Hammer for a stun.

    I think this works well, yes?
