    Death's Web question

    Hey i was reading a rabies guide and it said to bite them and then switch to death's web and back again. How does this help? Does it also work with psn charms and throwing weapons and bows and other characters and such.

    im sure it prolly ment to bite them with the deaths web as is has a really high % of -enemy resistance to poison. but im by no means an expert haha.

    Swapping works with all posion types, and all skills - including if you shoot with a bow and swap to dweb before the arrows hit.

    if you hit someone with a regular weapon with the rabies attack, then when you switch to your second weapon (dweb and 20/20 facet shield) it then adds the - resists...however, when you switch back to main shield/weapon it doesn't take back off the - enemy resists

    Ok so if im playing with a ranged character, and i throw an axe at somebody and have 25 290s in my inventory, i need to switch to dweb before the axe hits? Or can i switch afterwards (you swich after rabies right?)

    and then do i only have to do that once and can fire my next axes without switching?

    rabies is a completely different type of poison

    it keeps re-infecting the enemy not just one long effect, thats why you can die from one bite of rabies, so if you do a deaths switch the - res will take ffect once then keep going until the enemy is dead or rabies wears off

    This is interesting. Because i was thinking of making a pvp build using 451/12 poison charms and widowmaker.

    With 25 of them, if you score a hit, its 939 psn dmg a second for 12 seconds. Thats pretty hefty.. before you factor in people having maxed resists.

    That's why i was trying to find some way of lowering their resists so my poison charms will destroy them. If theres some way to use death's web, that would be nice. I was also thinking of 5/5 psn facets, as well as a lower resist wand, but i dont know if that would be bm or something.

    web works like that with bow swaps - all swapping on garrow:embarassed: works, whether it be open wounds, amp damage form lacerator or -poison from dweb.

    Calizzar, it's been a trick of famous bowassns and poison telebowazons since whenever dweb came out to switch to it after they let fire some arrows.

    It certainly works, and it works well. Stormshield, IMO, would beat out a 20/20 facet shield as you'll need the block and DR on your switch because you'll be missing out bow-side.

    Fire an arrow.
    Switch to Death's Web.
    Teleport two screens.
    Fire another arrow.
    Repeat.

    Question on the switch: Does the - resist only apply when you switch back or does the + psn dmg stay as well?

    I don't think any +damage will be added to your projectile, but I've never tried it with venom.

    This gives me some interesting ideas for unconventional PvP builds.

    You can get some pretty solid damage from the charms.

    451 * 37 = 16687 (37 charms)
    16687 * 1.8 = 30036 (bramble, trangs, 5/5 facet in dweb)
    30036 / 12 = 2503 (damage per second)
    2503 * (1/6) = 417 (pvp penalty)

    So if opponent has 0 poison resist, they will take 417 damage per second, killing most opponents in 7-11 seconds.

    Im brainstorming what to combine this with and will probably make a thread in the pvp forum with my ideas.

    I meant for Rabies, not arrows. Sorry.
