    I think you mean: "Do BvCs that use CoA take advantage of the +STR that Beast supports?".

    The answer is YES.

    But you only need 36 STR, as 138 + 36 = 174, and you cannot lower the requirements for Beast, unless it's ethereal, which I doubt. I've always said that str>ed on Beast, as the STR varies a lot and is more important that the insignificant ED (My BvC has a 246/38 Beast and he does better than good with it).

    However, I plan to make my BvC into 66/57, so that he can use CoA + Trangs + Enigma + dual Dooms. If you ask why, well, 40% FCR, no life lost when bo'ing, and the fact that then I can have 9-10k AR, 40% FCR and holy freeze to slow down bowazons.

    im pretty confused about the different setups with stat point distribution. What other items are you looking at that add str to get to 138?

    Well, it depends.

    If you go with my build, the only time you cannot use 2 Dooms is when you're using CoA and Fortitude and when you use Trang-Oul's Claws and pubsetup.

    However, once I get back to D2, I will get my BvC at least a few levels so that he can use Trang's + Dual Dooms + CoA.

    And then, of course you shouldn't depend on your Beast with your Enigma setup. If you do, you've either made a pure-vitality BvC or you do not have enough points in STR or you're too low lvl.

    Well, no, as you will NEVER even need 2 Dooms, CoA and Fortitude.

    And no, you ALSO use TGod's with Enigma, versus fohers and some annoying trappers or light sorcs for example.

    You will need to add an extra 36 to your STR with the 63 build if you want to use CoA with dual dooms and TGod's. But that's NOT worth it, nor is it ever needed.

    so against smiters and bowzons do you just flash them with dooms aura and then switchback?

    Well, that's how people suggest doing it.

    I rarely bother with Dooms versus smiters, most of them are simple shift-smiting ones anyways. And Doom is only needed versus telesmiters that use Grief BA.

    As for Bowazons, you're not supposed to use Fortitude anyways. I never really "bother" dueling bowazons so I just press W and kill them with dual Dooms.
