A Dragon-Disciple takes advantage of the lvl 14 Holy Fire aura given by the Dragon runeword and the lvl 16 Holy Fire aura given by the Hand of Justice runeword. He will equip 2 Dragons, a body armor and a shield,and a Hand of Justice weapon b/c the auras stack to become a lv 44 Holy Fire aura! Also synergies work with auras given by items!
1 Zeal - (Use for PvM) You just need enough for 5 swings per Zeal.
20 Holy Shield - Max this to save as many stat pts as you can.
20 Fire Resist - Max to increase dmg of Holy Fire.
20 Salvation - Max to increase dmg of Holy Fire.
10-20 Conviction - Put as many pts needed to get this to Lv 25 for the huge -150 res.
Sacrifice - Put pts here if you pvm and want some physical dmg.
Charge - Max if your gonna duel alot with this char b/c it gives the biggest AR boost.
Strength - Enough for equip.
Dexterity** - Enough for max block - Sacred Rondache with maxed Holy Shield you will need 152 total dex, not base, for max block on lv 85.
Vitality - Rest.
Energy - None.
**I have found that it is also viable to put just enough Dex for equip and skimp out on block b/c you'll usually just run away from the enemy. This allows you to put more in Vit.
EQUIPMENT (The Equipment listed are some of the best pieces in the game, realize the only required pieces are the HoJ and Dragons, you might could even pull it off with two of them but not sure)
Hand of Justice Phase or Zerk** - For Lv 16 Holy Fire aura. If you are not going to use max block then i would suggest the Zerk so you wont waste pts in dex tryin to equip the Phase.
CtA Crystal Sword or Double Axe - Battle Orders, more life and mana.
Dragon Dusk or Archon - For Lv 14 Holy Fire aura.
Crown of Ages VS Melee - "Ber Ber" for DR.
Kira's Guardian VS Casters - Great source of Resists.
