    Being hit by items with slow% while smiting

    I am unsure of how to do the calculations to figure out the additional IAS needed to counteract being slowed.

    For example:

    Lets say I'm using a GriefZ and I have level 6 Fanaticism. By the weapon speed calculator, I'll need 75% IAS to reach a 6 FPS smite.

    What if I'm hit withs a Cleglaw's user (25% slow). What would be the additional IAS needed to restore the 6 FPS smite?

    not even worth worrying about... slow is BM, so if you are dueling a slow user just nk them til they leave, but it has never happened to me in 2 years of dueling

    if you are actually using griefz and lvl 6 fanat think again... get grief pb and max fanat and you will need almost no ias to hit 6 fpa, and will easily be able to stack it, but i dont recommend it

    Not exactly the response I was looking for but thanks for replying. :azn:

    I actually duel on SP so NKing is frowned upon. Also my build is a T/V so I can't max fanatacism and I'm pretty much stuck with a GriefZ.

    I guess I'll just politely ask my opponent not to use excessive slow and if he still uses it anyways, I'll just ridicule him at the SPF. :rolleyes:

    AFAIK, you should treat all slow items as -IAS
    So if it's 25% slow, it's like -25ias.

    tip:
    slow in pvp is capped @ 50%

    This question has gone by mu head many times, though I have never recieved a proper answer.

    Does slow target% affect total ias or like oneBlast said, just - minus amount of slow target%.... ???

    So BM is "Bowel Movement" ? LoL

    What is problem with using slow ?

    If I want to duel with general's flail (50%)+glegaws (25%) and holy freeze aura so other guy can't move why not ? How is that diff than someone using other technique to win duels ?

    Note topic of the thread. This isn't a "Slow is BM" argument, its a technical question. Stay on topic.

    @Zhao: Have you posted this on the statistics forum (or PvP even)?
