    I'm surprised to see that Silence Phase Blade is not on there... I would use Silence over almost everything if you're going to be a pure smiter.

    Yeah, SPB was the weapon of choice back in 1.09 thanks to killer speed, skills, resists, and more. Don't know enough about new weapons to offer alternatives, though.

    Silence Phase is still one of the best non BM weapons out there. If you dont care about BM, use Lacerator/Doom Warspike (Speed)

    That would indeed be godly :clap: However, you can't have +skills to smite and HS/Fanct on the same scepter. Because there is a max on how may levels the skills can be apart, don't know the exact amount though...

    Why would you use an etheral one? Weapon damage does not inflict in smites dmg what-so-ever. However, it would get a lot of style points :) A redeemer would still beat it :p

    Some people prefer a well balanced weapon so you can use it for charge/zeal/smite. You wouldn't want to limit yourself to just one type of physical attack right? :thanks:

    extra socket, extra +1, 20 ias, 33 cb > + damage on redeemer.

    +4 combat iron ward would also be good though, since has cb and huge ar bonus. also faster weapon.

    i don't know about u guys, but for non-bm silence is viable. however, a priests xxx of quick/alacrity/readiness in a dual socket'd flail or 3 soc sword socket'd properly would beat out most of those options
    it's 1.1 and i still use my .9 smiter build(shaft-gear still) without any tap/amp/hf/cta and still have no add'd trouble against ones who do use those. amps a bit rough. just use lifetap wand u got stuck in stash for the bm duel'rs rest is history

    120 dmg is much better than crushing blow + 1 skill. Crushing Blow is so pathetic when comparing to Open Wound.

    120 dmg bonus is equivalent to 1411 min/max dmg

    cb is not pathetic. it can be huge, especially against vita-pallys and barbs. ideally you want both cb and open wounds. redeemer doesn't have open wounds anyway ><

    not sure what you mean on the second part.

    He mean 120 damage does not go through the pvp penetaly or DR. So it is really like alot more damage on your character screen. I'm not sure if his numbers are right but I bet there close.
