    How does Holy shock synergy work.

    Hey, my name is Dave, im making my mid lvl v/t pvp'r again and I just wanted to know if points into holy shock will synergize foh if I dont put pts into foh.
    How this works hopefully is that I will have a hand of blessed light switch, to foh with. This will save me 7 skill pts which I will only have 53 of to use in total counting skill quests. Im planning on maxing holy shield and almost maxing fanatiscm for maximum smite dmg and putting about 10 or so into holy shock to get my foh dmg to a decent lvl.

    I'm 90% sure that yes, the Holy Shock will synergize your FoH. Not 100% though, sorry.

    This won't work. Only hard points or charges can synergyse something.

    Masas is talking about the reverse situation. For example, if you spent real points into FoH but were using, say, a scepter with +3 Holy Shock. That situation would not give you a synergy bonus.

    This situation should though. Like I said, not completely sure.

    Wish I still had my character editor to try these things out before I waste hours lvling rushing and remaking -_-.

    i'll give you a few figures here. only holy lightning directly affects your foh damage output. holy bolt increases the holy bolt projectiles that come from the foh... but not the actual foh damage itself.

    1) lvl 20 foh, no synergy bonuses:
    Holy Bolt Damage: 226-236
    Lightning Damage: 675-725
    Mana Cost: 25

    2) lvl 20 foh, w/ level 20 holy lightning (hard points only):
    Holy Bolt Damage: 226-236
    Lightning Damage: 1620-1740
    Mana Cost: 25

    3) lvl 20 foh w/ lvl 20 holy lightning, & lvl 20 holy bolt (hard points only):
    Holy Bolt Damage: 904-944
    Lightning Damage: 1620-1740
    Mana Cost: 25

    4) lvl 40 foh, no synergy bonuses:
    Holy Bolt Damage: 1026-1036
    Lightning Damage: 1875-1925
    Mana Cost: 25

    5) lvl 40 foh, w/ lvl 20 holy lightning (hard points only):
    Holy Bolt Damage: 1026-1036
    Lightning Damage: 4500-4620
    Mana Cost: 25

    6) lvl 40 foh, w/ lvl 20 holy lightning, & lvl 20 holy bolt (hard points only):
    Holy Bolt Damage: 4104-4144
    Lightning Damage: 4500-4620
    Mana Cost: 25

    extreme foh damage projection in pvp:

    plus 'all' skills estimation:
    +2 enigma/coh
    +2 hoz
    +1 griffons eye
    +1 arach
    +2 maras/slippers
    +2 skill rings
    +1 annihilus
    +1 battle cry (cta)
    = +12 all skills

    plus combat skills estimation:
    10x +1 paladin com GCS
    +2 hoz
    = +12 combat skills

    plus foh skills:
    +3 foh rod

    additional skill levels to foh: 27
    additional skill levels to holy shield: 24
    additional skill levels to conviction: 12

    presumable level of foh: 47
    presumable level of holy shield: 44
    presumable level of conviciton: 25-32

    additional notes:
    this example pally has a 5x 5/5 lightning faceted foh rod, a 5/5 faceted perfect griffon's eye.

    Current Skill Level: 47
    Lightning Damage: 6663-6783
    Mana Cost: 25

    negative resistances:
    -25 (5/5 girffon)
    -25 (rod)
    -150 conviciton

    so overall you would grant a negative 200 to foes. effectively tripling your damage.

    versus 75 res opponent:
    -125 lightning res.
    = 2543 dmg foh after pvp penalty.

    I plan to have a lvl 22 foh no skills into it, through hand of blessed light. Will the synergy from Holy shock work with that is my question. Ty for the figures though makes me see what im going to be getting.
