    Best PK/Anti-PK Type of Rainbow Facet?

    What's the Best PK/Anti-PK Type of Rainbow Facet for your Char gets killed by a Pk'er

    1) Best Chance to hit the Hostile Player?

    2) Most Dmg dealt to hit the Hostile Player?

    3) Biggest Area of Effect?

    4) Ability to hit Long range Hostile Players like Guided-Arrow-Amazon, Bonemancer, Fist of Heaven-Paladins and other hostile sorcs included.

    5) Do the Effects Multiple Rainbow Facets Stack? For example, if you have 4 Cold Facets and 2 Poison Facets, do you release 4X Blizzard and 2X Venom upon death?

    I guess you're talking about on-death since you're highly unlikely to level up :)

    So we've got...

    Level 31 Meteor
    Level 37 Blizzard
    Level 47 Chain Lightning
    Level 51 Poison Nova

    Out of those:

    - Chain Lightning and Poison Nova are the ones most likely to hit. Meteor is easily enough avoided, and Blizzard can usually be evaded with minimal damage (although that depends on luck).

    - Damage-wise:

    Meteor: 1762-1842 impact, 405-426 per second flames
    Blizzard: 1575-1641 per 'shard'
    Chain Lightning: 1-686, 14 hits
    Poison Nova: 1637-1671 over 2 seconds

    These are just 'base' damages without Masteries or -resist/+damage from the Facets taken into account. Meteor does the most damage but is easiest avoided, Chain Lightning does the least. Poison Nova is the best candidate, based on the numbers.

    - Area of effect: Meteor has a 4-yard radius. Blizzard... can't remember off-hand, but about the same or slightly bigger. Chain Lightning hits 14 times, but will only bounce if there's another valid target nearby, so it will therefore probably only hit once. Poison Nova sends out bolts in all directions for about a screen's distance.

    - Range: Depends on how on-death stuff works (can't remember). If it targets your killer, then all of them will hit. If it doesn't, only Chain Lightning and maybe PNova will be able to reach that far.

    - Chance to Cast stacks the percentages, so you'd have only one of each effect.

    not to mention once a pker gets wind of your suicidal tendencies, they'll town gaurd and nk you to oblivion. (I entertained this idea once, while drinking a bit on a weekend off of work :lol: )

    Chain Lightning is probably your best bet, as Meteor and Blizzard are easily avoided (unless you get lucky), and Poison Nova may bring your opponent to 1 life but wont kill him/her.
