Doesn't DW trigger FoD twice? Since it counts that as a full attack or something.
Yes. That's why if you go for Kind Wayfarers, it's better to make the dual-wield.
What kind of gear would be good or anything goes? Also what armor are we looking at here heavy medium light? Also which stats anything goes or do they all need high int or?
Speaking of 5 completely the same jack-of-all-trades I do
second third? the herald suggestion, since it is also really decoupled from equipment so there won't be any 'fight' for uniques. Specifically wayfarer/troubadour. The party just doesn't die, and has a lot of invocations to cast.
And as alternative there could be wayfarer/monk, where you can balance the heals versus wounds generation.
For armor go for they heavy one. Of the highest importance is Blackened Plate armor, because of the -1 AR aura. And the rest Kaylon has already listed.
Also you have to decide, do you want 5 exactly the same heralds, that do the exact same thing, or if you are ok with slight specializing. And speaking of specializing I mean:
- you can have only one herald to use Lay on Hands. 5 x White Flames should provide more than enough healing, so this 1 paladin will use LoH for emergency cases. And because it has low range, you might want to give him Nomad's Brigandine for dissengagement immunity.
- the amount of items with +healing done, is very limited, so you will have to designate one herald who uses ONLY Flames of Devotion and doesn't spend zeal on nothing else. Also this one will be the one with Exalted Endurance and Ancient Memory. And Blackened Plate (if you choose the healing upgrade)
- speaking of weapons, I would recommend something along following lines:
> Magran's Favor + Sun and Moon
> Slayers'Claw + Kapana Taga
> Matakau + Shattered Vengeance | can start the fight with Xefa's Empirical Explication + Kitchen Stove (you want that cone Daze from Thunderous Report) and switch after initial opening
> Magistrate's Cudgel + Keeper of the Flame
> Beza + Tarn's Respite | with Willbreaker in offset
You can almost always keep battle axe modals on; and see for yourself when it makes sense to have offhand modals on as well.
