Re: FO/CL PvM Soso help

Why bother with FO when you've got infinity?

Use the Duel Spirits and put the infinity on a merc. You need 120 (117 I think) FCR for lightning, so your spirits need to be pretty much perfect with current gear. It would be better if you could switch that String of Ears out for an Arach if you can afford one. Also a Hoto instead of a spirit sword would be good, but also expensive.

A skill point in warmth is worth it.
You don't really need Thundestrom/ES.

Seems like your setup should be doing fine anyway.

*Sigh*

Only three things really wrong with your setup. First, obviously, string of ears isn't the best choice. Arach or a crafted belt, heck, even nightsmoke.

You don't need ES. Thats 6 skill points right there that you could have saved.

You also shouldn't hold the infinity. The only time you hold infinity is in PvP, who cares if you have to res a merc once in a while? You should be able to get good enough gear for him that he will be able to take on all the key bosses no problem.

i'll try the nightsmoke til i get a arach or some crafted...

6 points for ES i dont see it just 1 point :coffee:

And on the infinity tingy don't i need two hold it to break as meny of the lightning immunes as i can like the Guide to Understanding Broken Immunities say or is it not worth it...

Thanks mate :)

but where to put the rest of my points from now on :)

Re: FO/CL PvM Soso help

Only the conviction aura on Infinity breaks immunities, so it will work just as well on your merc as on you.

Not true. By holding it you also take advantage of the -Enemy Light Res on infinity. But that isn't really worth sacrificing your weapon and shield slot for.

I say 6 points in ES because of all the prereqs. I believe its actually 7, I'm too lazy to figure out the number.

Where you put the rest of your points is up to you. Do you use CL or Orb more often? Drop points in CL synergies or in CM depending on which you find to be the most effective.

That depends, if you can still maintain 117 FCR and good resists i would definitely hold the infinity myself. That way merc can hold Insight and you won't have to rely on such a moron. Style points count too.

Holding infinity works well on ES builds because ES takes damage before resistances so you don't have to worry about that.
