    Dodge Vs Smite

    If happens in PvP a smiter to come close to us, is the powerful skill "smite" will hit us every time or our passive dodging skills can help us?

    if you go against a smiter, just simply dont let the smiter get close to you, most of the time smiter vs bow zon will be like a 90% chance win for the smiter, and no, dodge dont really help since you'll be in dodge lock if they get that close to you and start smiting, mostly smiters just kill bowzons using nothing but charge

    If the smiter is charging you, just switch to javs and LF/run/repeat them. If they are just smiting, do the same with ga. You shouldnt go into dodge lock if you do it right.

    50dr/max block pally = nearly impossible duel.
    if they use doom or HF, you might as well bring in another char.

    the only ways to give yourself any chance is to:
    1) throw on gloves with kb, if you want to be bm clegs will do, otherwise +passive 20ias /etc/kb gloves will do.
    2) 1 point LB, high eth titans (upped if possible), with ss on switch.
    3)put on some fhr, mainly from boots and charms + 10 form dungos.

    4) ga till they get close, then lb

    LB will work only if the pally doesn't have massive resists. Usually, the pally will have either low dr or low res.

    I'm guessing you're talking about ladder.. I don't think many would take doom over grief (even though it is smart vs a bowazon). If they use doom, your best bet is to spam IGAs and hope for the best. Doom is bm anyway though :confused: .

    You dont know anything about smiters from what you are saying. Unless you're talking about a zealot using smite yes the smiter will have maxed lit res, usually beyond max.

    Thats my point exactly, if they have max res, they probably won't have max dr. IIRC, both phoenix and grief don't give much res/dr. Maybe if they used ber ber coa, coh, and verds they would have max res/dr.

    yes im talking about vs max resist.
    vs no resist pallys its pointless...for the pally. 1-2 hits gg.
    the reason it gives you a chance vs pallys even though they ahve max resist is cause its ITD and kb gloves give you 50% to kb. its also pretty fast so it can kb lock pallys when they go in for the smite.

    also once they get close, its pointless to switch back to bow unless you have 7-8 frame GA with a good amount of dr. otherwise its suicide.

    Even on my v/t I use max dr at almost all times. Ber shako Ber up'd hoz enigma and verdungos is setup 1. BerBer coa, tgods, enigma Ber up'd hoz is setup 2. Not hard at all too get max lr with max dr on a paladin. And generally vs any type of pally...once they get close happens very very fast.
