I am not going to alter the original paladin at this time.
I am going to make a submod, which will be called SYNERGIES PALADIN
it will require synergies to work.
it will be a fresh install of the paladin files, from scratch, and in teh new direction.
I am finding the old files are so convoluted and stressful to deal with, that doing it this way is best.
when its done, and the current paladins have the chance to respec, they can load hte paladin patch on top of synergies. This is the only means I have of keeping both my sanity AND your skill points safe.
quite frankly trying to 'fix' the current paladin is a good portion as to why i have been quiet lately, its stressful and crazy.
