It's not necessarily a skill factor.hydrahydra said:I have trouble beating smiters right now. They do tons of damage and have insane defense.
I have decent gears so it is more of a skill factor.
also should i use griefZ on mainhand or offhand along with beast
These?:hydrahydra said:just a quick question, when should I use arreat over coa?
Their attack triggers the curse Life Tap (appears are small red sparks above your character), which causes them to get 50% life from whatever damage they might do. Due to Grief, this damage is huge and thus the regained life is also huge. However, you can counter this via for example, Fade (as it shortens curse duration).edit; also I see smiters heal themselves alot, how do they do that?
Neither. You should change your playstyle into a more defensive one. If you're using Enigma, you can get on a nice tele-journey. There's no rule that says that you have to attack while cursed. However I rarely bother with waiting for it, as most smiters are toast anyways.hydrahydra said:as a barb should I just run away when I'm cursed or keep fighting?
For versus All, you should use triple or double resistance boots with 30% FRW and +stats.edit: also whats a good boot? atm im using an eth trek which is completely useless
No because the str requirements are too high and u wont be able to use them when u switch in ur armour for a duress or forti.BierWiser said:And why not use upgraded. The Enigma will give enough strength to use them, and strength is the only real problem with them.

Of course they're annoying. To each cocky smiter that beats me in a pub I always say "nice cursedin".matchuk said:smiters i find are quite annoying cos of lifetap, but ive met some pub smiters that wait out tap then keep dueling
I've only ever had trouble with 2 smiters. One of which is the best Smiter on Europe, and other is a v/t, who is supposedly the best anti-barb player in Europe. The best smiter (Goldwrap) can desynch so damn well that I simply cannot follow it. Also he's damn good with telesmites. IIRC he dueled and trained with morotsjos (the best BvC on Europe). As for the V/T, there's one simple problem with my barb: no stack rings or life/lr scs. Making it so that I get hurt by fohs if I use CoA and if not CoA, then smite.i find to beat good smiters (not ones that keep charging 24/7 at u) u need real short whirls, good clipping and try not to be too predictable with ur whirl, ive seen a real good telesmiter who could predict all my whirls tele or walk infront of them and smite me dead
However vs V/Ts you should/could be using Hsarus.also duel angelic setup is a must
That's the time you take out a Doom and beat him up. You could also force him to be offensive, which, unless he teleports, will put his blocking to a test.matchuk said:it is so fustrating in pub duels where its not really 1on1 and u get a smiter to under 500hp, he taps it back and types EZ
Charge means less blocking, so better for you. If I see a smiter on my map, I usually do some short whirls in case they might wanna charge at me.also another thing to watchout for is charge, i tend to short whirl abit if im he doenst appear to be shift smiting and just walking or standing around, charge if it connects hurts alot connecting with smite, short whirls counters that
I have them, but as I do not play D2 actively anymore, I cannot possibly use it (it got them a while ago). However, it seems that there's a little difference between Angelics and Hsarus. Hsarus allows more damage in a short time, whereas Angelics allow more damage over a longer period (due to more hits).SicHalo said:Ce Olba do u use this hsarus boots + belt?
Let's make it this way:How good are these i hear these mentioned abit but i don't see how it could fit in my setup as i have no problems with stack and i don't see how i can use.
And then you will wish you had them when you meet a max ias bp bowazon that has kb. And BTW, the only things that can compete with Dooms for the best swap on a barb is a +3/+Life Tap dagger.matchuk said:doom/grief pretty much is too bm for smiters haha i am selling my doomZ id ont find i rreally need it
for me its not a matter of best item, its just the doomz cost me 6-7hr, which i could use elsewhere on my other pvp char (making a mage) since im poorCe Olba said:And then you will wish you had them when you meet a max ias bp bowazon that has kb.
