    another spirit vs hoz question

    Im thinking about two setups (without combats):
    1)with spirit: +19 all skills (include +1 from BC) and 125FCR: damage is 12379-12487
    2)with HoZ: +19 all skills (include +1from BC) +2 combat and 90FRC: damage is 13147-13255

    Average damage diference is 768, so which one is better playing PvM: 125FCR and lower damage or 90FCR and higher (768 points) damage?

    I prefer 125 fcr, it means more hammers out there so also more dmg :laugh:

    Don't forget about fhr that spirit grants, mana is also nice, and vitality. i consider spirit the ultimate hammerdin shield. If you decide to use HoZ remember that fcr breakpoint is 75 so either go for 75 or 125 - anything in between will not make any difference anyway.

    90fcr -> 75% fcr breakpoint = 10 frames = 2.4 casts per second -> 13147-13255 (13201 avg) -> 31682 dmg per second
    125% fcr = 9 frames = 2.6 casts per second -> 12379-12487 (12433 avg) -> 32325 dmg per second

    so for you switching from 75fcr to 125fcr it will result in doing 643 more dmg per second

    @megafusion :
    pure dmg wise, without any extra skillers you're better off using zaka

    Kalvydas, use both.
    Switch 1 Hoto and HoZ = 75% FCR
    Switch 2 Wizspike and Spirit = 125% FCR
    I personnally use switch 1 for hammers and switch 2 for teleporting however, neither is mutually exclusive.

    P.S. with that exceptional amulet you have :grin: , you could probably substitute the Wizspike for another Hoto on switch 2.

    Dont forget the 86% FHR breakpoint! That can be huge when spamming hammers in the middle of a mob. Its going to be hard the reach that with a Hoz. With a spirit and the right gear, you can easily get 86% FHR, 125% FCR, and do over 13k dmg.
