I started a Templar as well, and really enjoying him, too. He's 21-ish at the moment.
So what's the templar play like? A Str+Int character seems so weird to me. Are you hitting shit with a big stick and then frying them with magic?
Kinda just been going the melee route, honestly....leap slam and twirlytwirl, whatever that skill is. I want to go staves, but right now the best weapon I have is an axe and it pretty much one hits everything....so not sure where this guy will go, honestly, but he's fun, no doubt about it.
I made a Templar as well, my Marauder is too far to change much at this point.
I am finding (seems like most games) that range is much better than melee.
My maruader (lvl 69) is groundslam/heavy strike build, and while decent, i take alot of damage from ranged mobs, takes awhile and seems slow.
The Templar (Lvl 59) is spell totem/summoner using freeze pulse/arc
Some mobs take awhile to kill but im having a much easier time thus far. Im still toying with spell totem, both links seem decent.
Spell totem + Arc + Greater projectiles + chain
Spell totem + Ice Spear + greater proj + faster projectiles
Still playing with it, but i am tearing through stuff decently in Act2 merciless so far.
