    WW > Smite already. I guess LT makes it a bit more fair.

    Yeah smiters are very easy with good AR. The thing is, just don't WW right through them, that will allow them quite a few hits. As for the lighting, they will be without fanaticism and smite, so while they do that, you can just teleport and attack them. They will be trying to keep distance anyways. I'd say the only real problem is the lightning damage. With good resists that won't be a problem.

    Rofl, good smiters don't give you the time to teleport also quite a few people use fortis vs smite. Rofl at lightning damage.

    Anyway i didn't ask how to duel smiters, this thread is to discuss weather it's a fair duel.

    Yes, lt will effectivly counteract the advantage of WW.

    the only time its a fair duel iswhen the smiter has same range as the barb, if they use pb its still very much in favor of the BvC.
    But aside from that whats your guys opinion , is LT bm in such a duel or not?

    I find it challenging in a fun way to duel lt + ba smiters, it's quite a fun duel in my opinion but of course if would find lt bm in tvts or any other 1v1s. It seems pretty fair to me and it's similar to bvc vs lt zeal.

    zealots are nothing compared to smiters, mostly because noone make anti-barb zealots.
    any random smiter with enigma can beat 95% of barbs in 20 seconds, assuming equal skill/gear smiter will nearly always win any series of duels. smiters control the game since they can charge, desynch, slow+holy freeze, telesmite, widow-hit-and-run and medi at will. the reason nearly noone bothers with that is because they find barbs easy enough anyway.
    decked out smiters with 5k+ life, 50k+ def, dracs+exile, grief pb and some stacked ias wont lose if they decide not to.

    if i think of the right smiter he still won a few duels. consider that he was the aggressor, didn't utilize charge/slow/holy freeze/medi/widow/desynch whatsoever and obviously was way less experienced than me.

    Oh, sorry, I was thinking v/t not LT.
    Well you said discuss. I am pretty sure some criticism isn't needed when I say how I duel smiters with WW, I think I got pretty close to the topic.

    30 more base speed. good vs barbs who use slow. useless otherwise. then again range is overrated when telesmiting.
