    Jabber PvP

    They any good? I dismantled my Faith zon and have 25+ frw/dmg small charms laying around so thought I'd try a hybrid version (i.e. 20pts LF or LB).

    Relevant equipment:
    169 eth upped Titans
    dmg. charms
    Fortitude

    Speed's going to be a problem since I traded my ias helm. Hoping to hit 4.5 frames (100%?). All advice welcome.

    If you're making a jabber you're going to have to play with enigma. It's highly unlikely you'll beat smiters/wwbarbs/dedicatedmelee fortitude or not and enigma will be better than anything else for other opponents.

    Jabbers have 3 main advantages over other melee:

    - Valkyrie as a tank (with teleport, this is vital and can even add damage)
    - Dodges, this will boost your actual hp to 6k +.
    - Lightning fury and lightning bolt (both are powerful offensive 1 point skills, not many characters have such an option).

    However, if you want to make a jabber they are generally rather expensive to make a good one so it's probably not the best idea.

    OK, have to put her on backburner then. My idea was to focus more on LF/LB as primary dmg. & jab as contingency. I'm pretty sure Smiters/Barbs are going to be difficult, if not impossible, if they stack res.

    On the contrary, you'll find the majority of barbs/smiters rather easy if you walk/LF and have high physical damage. In fact, bvc/bva without shields can be taken simply by standing still and throwing LF (unless they are extremely good, depending on the javs you're using).

    To reiterate: The best way to take down barbs/smiters it to use LF for physical damage, (sometimes even if you're a pure light javazon).

    Re: Jabber PvP

    Would I have to name-lock/throw or is LF a/o LB auto-target?

    It's not homing if that's what you mean.

    I generally do not namelock with LF/LB. If they are charging/teleporting at you it shouldn't be hard to simply throw LF/LB in their general direction to hit them.

    The only time namelock LF/LB might be useful is when they are retreating (shouldn't happen with smiters/ww barbs).

    You won't kill casters using LF/LB generally. This is where you use tele + jab (much like tele zeal or tele cs).

    Actually with 48 or higher fcr it's not as bad as the frames indicate.

    Vs. casters you can use spirit monarch + 20 fcr circ + fcr ammy + arachs/caster belt to hit 99% and it'll be decent.
