Re: Hybrid or Ghost

Whichever build you go for, don't use a suwayyah for your Fury! You need a runic or feral or something kinda fast so you can least wsm bug to hit 9fpa trap laying speed with a Fury claw.

Re: Hybrid or Ghost

You can--Runics are perfectly fine.


Hybrids are good in a GM pub (oxymoron, I know). In just a random game, expect absorb.

W/O absorb, a hybrid has a much higher chance against barbs. With it, you're better off with a Ghost, but lose the ability to target multiple people like a Hybrid can.

Re: Hybrid or Ghost

@ Sass so you think Ghost would be best with my current gear? i've been leaning towards it.
Is my main problem my claws? and can a Ghost sin peform just as well in pubs cos like you said i can only target 1 person at a time i've been flip floping back and forth between both builds trying to decide i think my main worries are that if i go Hybrid i wonte be able to lay traps quickenough and that as a ghost im going to bet barb stomped and killed by 2v1 ppl.
Sorry about this guys im probably being a nooby pain but im just finding myself feeling clueless as to what to do =/

Re: Hybrid or Ghost

Currently, the gear favors a hybrid. Ghosts tend to use Highlord's and a tri-res pair of boots. They don't need treks.


Hybrids benefit from Mara's, and enjoy the +2 Shadow on dancers.


Neither build uses 2x Suwayyah. Like you fear, using them makes you cast traps too slowly. Build with either a Runic or Ferals and WSM like Tienje describes if you want to use a Suwayyah.


If this is your only PvP char, I'd start with the hybrid. LS makes you more versatile, and you can afford to stay back and get the hang of PvP before jumping into face-to-face PvP. Both are heavily skill intensive, and Hybrids are the more user friendly of the two.

Once WW is mastered, a simple respec can get you to be a Ghost--they can perform well with that gear as well. For both, trap speed is everything, so look into swapping that Fury.
