    Fist of Heavens Question

    I was looking at Fist of the Heavens and it states that it ignores the resistance of undead and demons. Does that mean that it would be pointless to use Conviction as an aura with someone who makes use of Fist of the Heavens as their primary attack?

    I could be wrong, but FoH does both lightning and magic damage. Magic damage does not increase with conviction, I don't think conviction lowers magic resistance, but lightning damage would. But since lightning damage counts only for the target itself not his surroundings, it would not be of much use.

    The above is based on 1.09 observations; I haven't had a Paladin in 1.10.

    Well, that's more or less what I was going for, anyway. Lower the lightning resistance of the bad-guy and the Lightning portion of the damage kills them faster. More damage, few casts per opponent, better all the way around.

    However, if the resistance of demons and undead are "ignored," that means that vs. those opponents, Conviction may be useless. My question is, is it really useless? It may be better for me to do more with Holy Bolt and Holy Shield skill wise and ignore Conviction.

    So confused :scratch: .

    It could also mean that the base lightning reistance for undead is set to 0 and that Conviction will take it into the negatives. You´d like that, huh?

    Let´s see if someone has a better answer.

    That would be cool, but I'd like to see if anyone knows for sure.

    Well, I guess that this is too esoteric a build... I guess I'll give it a try and see what happens.

    Probably won't get that far, anyway. This is HC, afterall.

    Wish me luck...
