No you need open wounds as well.Assuming he's talking about wwbarbs; no you dont. You only need block&def in bvb period.
I was saying that wwbarbs only need def and block vs other wwbarbs. All other melee are beatable (and in 99% of the cases very easy) without block and with crap def.xpumafangx said:No you need open wounds as well.
And I am 100% shure charge is blockable.
The big problem with charge is it is a 1 hit killer. It does have weakness. With 75% block rate they have a 25% chance of hitting you. Now think about having a really hard def to be hit. Now that chance of being hit by a charger drops.
Nono, that doesn't work. Not at all. First off, ww >>>>>>>>> smite.Lazy_BerZerker said:yes... but then he can lure you in to making ww by fake charge, and afterwards tele behind you and start smiting in your ww probably hitting you with life tap and smashing you down... or something :uhhuh:
Nah I'll admit that barb vs charger = barbs advantice ^^ though a pala can make a lot of tricks
And I am saying in barb vs barb you want open wounds to kill off the barb you are dueling. I am not talking about a barb vs caster build fighting the same build. I have found that a high def+75% block rate. could kill those kinds of barbs. I know that the best thing to have vers any ww barb is open wounds+90lvl.I was saying that wwbarbs only need def and block vs other wwbarbs.

Yeah, my BvAll got his ass kicked by this one superexpensive smiter (astreons, dracs, exile, all the BM goodies :uhhuh: ), until I pulled out my secret weapon.. ::drummrolls:: a wand with lifetap charges !! I totally whooped his ass then ^_^ But in general, if the chars are more or less the same in equip and skill a barb will win 5-0. My barb loses vs the good smiters because his equip is worth 1/10th of what they useMr.Popo said:Btw, smiter does have a chance to beat ww barb if he is well-equipped and skillful.
Of course you need open wounds in bvb, but why bring it up in this thread?xpumafangx said:And I am saying in barb vs barb you want open wounds to kill off the barb you are dueling.

Ah yeah, grief allows for less mistakes by the barb. A damage-comparision as you decided is useless however. On paper even NL-smiters >>>>>>> wwbarbs. Thing is, competent barbs will barely get hit at all if they whirl right.Lazy_BerZerker said:I was thinking about using grief when I wrote before... but still couln't anyone make a damage / leech / life / speed / defence output between a max smiter versus a max ww'er? To be honest I think the smiter theoretical has a great Chance ^^ though I don't have time to make the calculations by myself right now
Unfortunately not. Grief Smite is just as much of a joke as any other smite if the barb can pick his attacks. Only chance a pally w/ grief has is by using FOH to make the barb attack or die. But we just did extensive tcp/ip game testing of a variety of godly paladins vs BVC baba and none of them have ANY chance versus even sub-optimal baba gear recipes.morotsjos said:Smiters on ladder might change that though, will be really interesting when grief comes to nl =)
