    [L] Quick Question on AR and the importance of it VS casters

    i am contemplating on my anti-caster switch and was wondering how much AR is sufficient enough to kill sorcs/necros/druids? i should have 4k AR off the bat and was wondering if i should wear this +2 pally circlet 20fcr AR per lvl 37life 15resist circlet (gonna socket it with 15ias/15resist jewel) for the major AR boost along with p ravens (but casting hammers with 30fcr) or a +2 pally circlet 20fcr 24str 68mana 14resist (gonna socket it with 15ias/15resist jewel) with p ravens and a 10fcr ring (which gives me 50fcr and reaching the next bp)

    if you feel like the major AR boost isnt necessary then i d rather go with the 2nd circlet so i can wear a +2 pally 20fcr amulet and cast a bit faster

    any insights would be appreciated... thanx for reading

    I assume this is for a Liberator?

    Generally, most casters have very low defense. But even so, your 4k seems a bit low to me. I've never experimented with caster-killing using low AR, but I would think at least 8k would be a much safer number.

    If you have a melee side and caster side, it's much easier to hit FCR BPs without sacrificing gear. That is, of course, assuming that you're building a Liberator; if not then ignore this last part :D

    well i hear some of my frends has like 2-4k ar and they say it doesnt matter much but i wanna hear from other people and see what they have to say

    and my build is originally a mage but i have stuff in stash to switch up and become an anti-caster (with charge/smite) so yea... i need to know which circlet would be better for what as i cant have both of them in stash... no space

    I easily hit casters with 6000 or so. I don't think anything more than 4000 is needed.

    so in this case... i should go with the circlet with 24 str 68 mana so i can take off my amulet and get me a +2 pally 20fcr amulet to reach 50fcr bp... let me double check if i get 4k flat

    Imo, you should try and reach the 75 fcr bp.

    That circ only adds onto your dex's ar. Pallies generally have low dex. Sorry?

    I agree with shade. a better cast rate could often help more against caster. charge with blessed aim is always an option if you need the ar boost ( i use that alot with my doom)
