    hoto vs wizardspike

    i have both i can use for my hammerdin, the hoto is a bit high with 125 str req i think made out of scourge (is this a bit high?) hoto gives a bit of res, cast rate and +3 to all skills, and wizardspike 75 to all res, mana, 50 fcr.. why do hammerdins who can easily afford hoto use wizardspike as primary wep? is this just for res? and the extra 10 fcr?

    AFAIK some paladin players are using Wizspike and Spirit shield to reach 125fcr breakpoint for superfastcast of hammers.

    Glove=20
    Belt=20
    Shield=35 (when max.)
    Weapon=50
    -------------
    =125fcr

    As far as hoto goes, it sounds like you made it into a Scourge, not such a great platform for a caster weapon :p. Flail is preferred for low req. Otherwise ofc, hoto is cool because it has practically all a good pala needs. 40%fcr, 3skill, 30-40res,+10dex... one candy after another...

    It's just that with Hoto you can't reach 125fcr bp, so the next one is @75, which most people go for anyway, so np here.

    With enigma you should be able to get to 125Str. You can always trade it (if its a decent %) for a Flail one with a crappier resist. Some people may want to do that.

    I use the Wiz/Spirit set-up for fast teleporting and the Hoto/HoZ set-up for killing. Works great for me.

    with only 10% less fcr its easy to reach using caster ring or amu if thats the concern, gaining 2 skills.
    Its mainly a mana/res/fcr consideration.
