    reading the guides help.

    1. as for armour it all depends coh i think is better. for this build.
    it has + damage to demons and undead and its the resists are huge as well.

    2. that is in debate. grief seems to be quicker but you need some more equipment its the poisen mods on grief. last wish has CB which is very important. grief does not. if you are going pure smiter last wish or even black would be better because of the CB if you can afford it death is opt.

    3. Helm again if you need cb it is the orphan helm. boots gores all the way. also if you use LW or death and gore the helm is not need as you will have a 75%+ on CB if you really need 100 then go with helm. gloves here is the other argument. some will say dracs the others will say laying of hands it all depends on what you need. belt again preference tgods works well or cirumdem (sp?).

    4. smite is always on left aura on right

    5. there was a listing on another page that had that you need to look for it. it was under sapherm hymn thread.

    But if he is PvP, this setup will kill him fast.

    With the grief and LW debate, grief leeches more, and finishes off that silver much faster.

    1. Fanatism, attack speed and weapon range. IM will affect smite since its a melee skill as well.

    2. Grief can be used for PvM and PvP. LW only for PvM. LW takes down hp faster but does not finish the boss as fast as Grief. Grief knocks down hp slightly slower but kills off faster in the end.

    3. Fort = huge off weapon ED that adds to smite. Nice defense. Also its cheap compared to CoH. CoH, huge resist + str bonus and other nice mods. Def sucks though and cost more (Dol Um Ber Ist).

    4. Yes smite always hit as long the target is in weapon range.

    Please do read the guide a bit, they are all answered there. Also, please what others have posted above you.

    1. CoH if you need resist, Fort otherwise.
    2. There is a debate on this I am not going into.
    3. Get grief.
    4. Yes if it is a grief, and by a lot too.

    otto please read what others have been posted, and don't repeat the same questions so many times. And you should really read the guides. I would use coh/forti for ubers and enigma/forti in pvp.

    Read the FAQs first too.

    And then read everything that's in Strategy Comp. You seem to be fairly new to the game, so it wouldn't hurt to build up the fundamental knowledge.

    2. I'd say Exile. 15% Life tap + 5% Drac = 20% Lifetap is godly for a smiter. Prebuff Shield with HoZ and ditch it for Exile.

    alright guys, sorry for that
    im actually not a newbie but really sorry for that.

    OK. ONE LAST QUESTION

    thank you very much

    both are perfectly fine to use and a matter of perference.

    grief gives you that lvl15 venom which keeps the ubers from healing plus it add the -25% to poison resis and it helps out. you can knock that last bit off quicker.

    with last wish you are going to need to do some other stuff. CB is good but has diminishing returns less health less cb is usefull.

    so OW is important. also getting some poison charms would be helpful as well for LW.

    grief is strong on the back end. lw is stronger on the front end.

    You said PvP, right? Do you really want to equip your PvPer with a weapon that does crappy damage compared to one that does godly damage for smite?

    GRIEF IS FASTER! nuff said! Ais = More hits = more dmg! And grief still adds more dmg to smite than lw. With Guilelms or however you spell it and gores your Cb should be fine. Not so sure venom effects smite either. In facts smite cannot add any elemental or poisen dmg to an attack.. only on zeal switch.

    You are right sorta.

    The venom on grief is CTC. CTC spells happen when smite is used. That is how life tap is activated.

    Grief is a better melee weapon than LW. It does way more phy damage and is faster. It also it lots cheaper than LW at only 2 hr.

    It does not have the CTC spells or crush blow that LW has. Fade, Life Tap, Charged bolt (?) and huge crush blow. Life tap and Crush blow are the most significant of these.

    If you use Grief you get life tap and crush blow from other gear. Drac gloves and exile give life tap. Guill. helm and gore rider boots are the standard soures of 50% crush blow for Grief users.
