Good pally Circlet?

I recently gambled a 3+ combat skills/ 20% FCR Circlet and wondered what it would be good for and what to socket in it? I was thinking that a hammerdin would make the best use of it and wondered if its worth building a pk hammerdin around. Any input would be appreciated.

Oh, by the way i socketed it and got 2 sockets too :p

ShaelShael is the most common combination.

Personally, I find that combo useless if you're wearing Spirit. Other choices could then be Ums or PRubies.

is spririt a viable shield on hammerdins though? seems like a hoz would be more benificial due to skills, stats and high block.

Spirit is definitely a viable shield. If you're aiming for a PvPer then it becomes more enticing because the FCR bonus goes a long way to helping you reach the 125%FCR breakpoint.

Spirit also offers +Skills, FHR (VERY important), and nice resist bonuses especially when made in a Paladin-only Resist-automod shield, in addition to some Magic Absorb :)D), all in addition to up to 35%FCR and a very nice bonus to Mana and Vitality. The block rate is clearly inferior to HoZ, but don't forget that Holy Shield will help you out a lot.

block rate? as in, fpb? holy shield=2 fpb, no matter what.

as far as that goes, yes, you are going to lose a lot of block using it. However, there are ways to make it work well (like using it vs. sorcs/casters wtih unblockable attacks). personally, I like the hoz better.

I may be wrong but I think FoH is NOT affected by FCR. I have a v/t and I do not bother with FCR. It simply makes the animation faster.

You are correct in saying that FCR doesnt affect cast rate on FOH, only animation speed as far as i know, however, this circlet is best used on a hammerdin and not on a FOHer. Ur prolly better off with a Griff on a FOHer if your gonna go with a circlet.

Oh, sorry. Didn't really read properly before posting.

Yea, it'll be a cool hammerdin circlet. I'll probably socket it with ShaelShael for better FHR. Hammerdins usually tele into a mob before unleasing hammers. FHR would probably help, since resistance will come from spirit and hoto.

I also have a +2 pally skill, 20%FCR, 2socket circlet, but i only PvM, so it's actually quite useless for me
