    Is this Necro Viable for PVP

    Hi All,

    I got a +2 necro, 20%fcr, 17resis circlet so thinking about making a pvp boner. I will do mostly nm dueling. But will this build be any good?

    ArthritisMaster (going to level 80)
    Gear:
    +2 necro, 20%fcr, 17resis circlet
    Enigma (breast Plate)
    Perfect Spirit
    Marrows
    Arachnid
    SoJ x 2
    Maras
    Hoto
    Magefists (might try crafting better gloves with resist)

    Stats:
    FHR - 55% already on Spirit, was gonna get a fhr sc +life which will give me the 56% which is 7frames.

    FCR - %20 (circlet), %40 (hoto), %35 (spirit), %20 (Arachnid), %20 (Gloves) = %135 which will give me 9frames

    Resist - Thinking about um'ing my circlet, because i have enough fhr.
    Circlet (um'ed) 32 all resis
    Hoto (perfect) 40 all resis
    Maras (mines 27) 27 all resis
    Spirit - Has %35 all resis
    Anni - 17 all resis
    Resis = 117 (without spirit
    Resist (with spirit) =
    Cold = 158
    Fire = 117
    Light = 158
    Poison = 158

    I can invest into some +res +life sc's to help with resist.

    Blocking Vs Health:
    I like the idea of blocking especially of the flood of PvP Smiters around. But i understand it takes huge amounts of dex to get 75%, I plan to go to level 80 and not sure how much dex i will need for a monarch spirit to get 75%.

    And then again i will try and get as much health out of my charms as possible.


    Cheers
    Pougee

    You can't block a smite attack.

    I use two setups for my boner, Wizard/spirit and Hoto/Homun. I got maxblock with homun and I use it for babbas, amas and other blockables. I wonder how many times block has saved my butt :scratch: .

    I was quite aware of that, Smiters tend to well most if not all of them charge casters. You need blocking for that.

    Why not sheal your circ and get 3 fhr scs (or a fhr gc/w another mod preferrably) to hit 86%, it's only one more frame but I find it to be well worth it on a caster.

    Nope, I don't, but I know it from experience, especially vs. windies.
