    Level 9 Dueler

    If i had a level 9 sacrifice paly dueler facing other level 9 ones or maybe even a level 12 would it be a bad or good idea to put 1 or 2 points in smite or thorns or both?

    Thorns returns utterly pathetic damage in pvp (ask SiP I believe he was the one who tried a lvl 2x thorns pally). It's something like 1/10 the damage returned. Smite, however, deserves one skill point; many do an attack order of smite, sac, smite, sac, etc etc etc.

    Thx, maybe even two in smite? But would defiance be of any help?

    No, dont use defiance, might is much more useful as a smite/sac'r

    As for Thorns, yes, SiP did one, as did I, it has been verified, it is a complete failure... Do not use thorns!

    Also, dont use more than one in smite, its just there for the stun, not to do the damage.

    Defiance is useless. The point in Smite is just to stun -- you'll only do a few pts of dmg after the PvP penalty. You're not gonna actually kill anyone doing the sac/smite/sac/smite thing unless they're really slow with the juvs, but it'll win you duels (you don't have to kill someone to win a duel). If you just want ears, stick with sac all the way.

    Defiance-no
    Thorns-heck no

    Might i suggest making a more effective build since you seem to be pretty unexperienced with lower level dueling. Its not exactly easy to make a good level 9 sacadin. Perhaps a jabber kicker or charger?

    with 1.10, there isnt much variety in low level dueling. sigh :yawn:

    Defiance is not useless... It's actually a nice aura to have on an allready high damage skill, where one or two points in might won't add all that much damage.
