Basically I have a challenge for all you optimization wizards. I'm playing in a 3.5e campaign. We are playing the Shackled City Adventure Path in Greyhawk. We cannot use any Forgotten Realms books, but other than that it's pretty much open.
I currently have a 10th level Paladin with the below stats (started with 32 point buy and additional increases are due to levels and some magic items).
10 Level Paladin of St. Cuthbert
Feats: Mounted Combat; Power Attack; Improved Smiting (CD); Celestial Mount; Ride-by-attack.
In one more level I will be receiving a Celestial Dire Tiger as a mount so I do not want to get Charging Smite as a feat as that will remove my ability to have this cool mount.
Anyway, as to my question. I want to maximize my damage when mounted and charging.
Can someone help me to figure out what I need to do in order to do this and how much damage I will be able to dish out?
Also as a note in two more levels I will be able to use True Strike 2x/day due to an item that I have, so I can basically utilize all my PA bonus and if I initiate my True Strike ability still be able to hit the target (unless I roll a 1).
