    Firewall viable for PvP?

    Firewall does high damage per sec, and if you namelock your opponent with it, it automatically appears udner their feet, so would it be good against noobish pub opponents who stand still (nigmaless hammerdins, newb bowzons, etc.)

    This wuldnt be for serious dueling, just having fun in pub games. What im asking is if it can kill or not against an averagely opponent with 75 fire resist and no absorb.

    Also this would be unique

    about 3 years back ive fought a sorc like that. Of course she maxed out her fire wall so it was really long. She just sorta teled around just spamed her fire wall. Fire wall with FM does quite a bit of damage. I dont really think its just for the newbs who just stand there motionless, the trick is to spam :D . so every where u go u get burnt!!!!! w00t w00t

    Yeah id doubt its viable for leagues but hell it looked pretty usefull.

    yeah i was thinking the skill would be

    max fw
    max fm

    the essentials (warmth, static, tele, etc.)

    then either go w/ an energy shield or a nice thunderstorm

    Since id use for pvp i wouldnt want a weak backup skill like orb, (thunderstorm is the exception b/c it is.... pimp imo)

    Bumping your own thread is not allowed here.

    Anyway, I don't ppl will just stand there and let your Firewall burn them. After a few firewalls, most of them would know your attack and run a screen away so you can't hurt them.

    They might have to run a few screens away. High level firewalls are really long.

    Inaccuracy is a problem though. Is there a casting delay for firewall?
