    HOTO vs. Spirit?

    Just going with the flow:cool:

    But seriously I'd pick Hoto on hdin cause spirit makes you use 5%fcr more for 125fcr bp, and spirit most other class. Especially if they are max block(no fhr from spirit shld) yeah ... just let this thread die plz...

    oh forgot to mention the sexy life and mana for ya es sorc

    For a 200/142 Sorc, spirit allows for a lot more flexibility in terms of FHR, and helps out with life/mana like you stated.

    if you could get the same stats on a spirit sword as you would on a shield id probably pick spirit. otherwise hoto>spirit.

    i've used spirit sword on a windy when he was using stormshield. in caster duels i used hoto/spirit shield, but when i needed block i went with spirit sword so that i wouldnt have to swap in a ton of fhr gear. dunno if that was the "best" way to do it, but it worked for me.

    I prefer a spirit sword on maxblock/es sorcies. If your resists are good, then all you are really losing is the one skill, but you’re gaining amazing fhr and some vitality. 55 fhr in one lump chunk is hard to beat. And as long as it’s a 35 fcr spirit, then you hit the 105 bp perfectly with a 20 circ, 20 belt, 20 glove, 10 ammy, 35 sword set up. Of course that really only applies to a fire sorc now that I think about it. I guess you could argue the same logic on a nec or windy, but on an hdin it’s hands down hoto as fhr isn’t as much of weakness.

    Thats exactly what my windy does for mb setup but he's really hurting for resist. Max in hell but not after anya :thumbdown:
    Atleast true max resist in caster set up when I need res more

    i keep a 35 spirit sword, 39res HotO and a wizknife handy on my 200fcr vit FB sork.

    dual spirits & 142fhr for vs trappers & bvc's, hoto as main wep, wizzy vs cold sorks and fohers.

    i find it works quite well.
