    Final Pvp Character: Hammerdin or BVC?

    I've built quite a few pvp characters, but I feel like investing a lot of resources in one more character and just pvping a lot with it.

    I've played both hammerdin and bvc, although neither of them recently, and I feel they are builds that offer ALOT of flexibility and have a good chance of going toe to toe with just about every build (when played right).

    Which one should I make? Which one has a better chance against most builds and what are their respective weaknesses? Any other character suggestions are welcome. (regarding the "hammerdin" im considering liberators/any build that utilizes hammers significantly)

    BvCs are alot of fun to play however the learning curve is quite steep so don't expect to come fresh out and expect to own everything.

    hammer varient are fun to play i.e libby and mages (hammer/foh)

    Bvc over hammerdin for fun

    Though paladin varients are pretty fun too.

    In terms of even matchups against other character builds, which one has more defined weaknesses (and what are they?)

    Re: Final Pvp Character: Hammerdin or BVC?

    assume it is pure hammerdin, really there is no real weakness.Only chars may have some advantage over them
    windy/summon bonemancer/summon posion/Es sorc(?) > hammerdin
    bvb/ exile smiter(?) >bvc
    Build a bvc if you have wealth,more fun. with hammerdin ,you soon give up because of bore

    Re: Final Pvp Character: Hammerdin or BVC?

    Es sosa's are a hard match for hammerdins?

    can they really tank hammers?

    More than anything though, im interested in making my build effective at defeating most other builds I run into (take fun out out of the equation :D)

    my bonemancer can only collasp a es with continu bonespears only,ie not even spirite do much damage.So even hammer do much more damage,but very unlikely a es sorc will get mutli hammer hit,so i assume hammerdin will have diffculty of killing es sorc

    would 1 pt in charge and a grief pb/Z suffice in handling the sosa?

    Should be, since you have high level concentration. Grief is definitely a powerful enough weapon on its own.

    malice may be useful against them too, especially for those 95 es

    charge... run away 8 seconds, charge again... wait 8 seconds... then they got 1hp left, charge

    and theyre dead

    Re: Final Pvp Character: Hammerdin or BVC?

    How can a Hammerdin handle a Hammerdin's weaknesses? In anycase, BvCs generally have a lot more weaknesses than a Hammerdin, but like everyone said, Hammerdins get quite repetitive.

    Re: Final Pvp Character: Hammerdin or BVC?

    Both are great. Overall I find hdins stronger.

    Fun wise .. I dont know. I never really played hammerdins because everyone plays them.
    BvC is, imho, no fun against all paladin types even if you can kill those. It's just that you can only ... whirl around ... ^^

    If I built a hdin I would go for rest points into HS. LR aura is crap if you ask me since you can just as well swap to TGods which is even much better with its 20 abs.
    HS provides def, which is very important when dueling BvCs and increases your overall life (less dex for block) and smite damage.
    You should get into libby playstyle and practise how to combine hammers, charge and smite correctly. Charge with lvl1 base still does very good damage. You could also figure out a good libby switch setup with high %DS and/or OW when you need it.
