    Liberator questions.

    I want to ask about liberators. The guide posted is a bit outdated, and dosn't list some possible gear. I still want to use lovelygod's/lovelyhahagod's libberator skillset, but I'm still not sure about the gear. I would like to have 125 fcr, and hit a few other bps... but I still cannot figure the optimal set.
    Skills would be:
    Max hammers
    max conc
    max charge
    max vigour
    16 blessed aim
    1 holy shield

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    you cannot hit 125 fcr if you are using grief. at most you do 75
    and you need to use grief else u better go for pure hammerdin...

    kk my bad dint think about more flexible gear choices , but yes lost dr means you will have alot of problems against druids, barbs, and maybe bowazons.
    also if im not wrong using spirit to smite is not a good idea (dmg is too low ), not to mention he really need alot of stacked res because he will lose from not using wizzy or hoto, and since he will have to use 9 pcombats he has only slots for 10 20life/res scs. so basically he has to duel with 75 fcr in many duels ,pubs especially.

    im not an experianced libby player, but a Forti weapon in a cadeus with possibly 3bh and/or conc should be a good comprimise between caster and charge weapon. isnt it?

    AFAIK an elite Paladin Shield will have the best damage in the game, and it will be the same whether it is unique, rare or has a Runeword or even PGems socketed in.

    25%fcr fort
    20 fcr gloves
    20 fcr belt
    20 fcr circlet
    35 fcr spirit sacred rondache
    10 ring
    __

    130 fcr with highlords

    OR, ammy and fcr rings and use stormshield for dr when you need it.

    OR - 08 valk

    ORRR!!! use 75 fcr because you don't need 125 anyway.


    And why are you guys discussing smite damage anyway? This is a Liberator, not a Vanquisher or some wannabe Judicator.

    I'm going to use a weopon switch... I was thinking hoto on one and cta on the other... then switch out grief once I bo'd.



    Edit: Oh, and ty wolven... I don't know why I would use smite.

    Sorry, but I just read this.... Wtf are you talking about?

    Pcombs arn't needed.. I'm still able to 9k+ hammers. Why am I smiting? If I'm close enough to use smite... hammer would be far better? And if I need the res I always have a weopon switch.

    don't use a switch. pre-buffing bo gets boring really fast. and charging anybody with your hoto by mistake = death. and all it takes is a little bit of lag for that to happen.
    75fcr is enough. Grief is the weapon of choice. You can always keep a fcr ring/hoto in stash for 125fcr v's pure hdin's.
    my pub set up is this

    Coa-berber
    Highlords
    Grief
    Spirit -35fcr, 45res sacred rondache
    Trang glove
    Spider
    Ravenfrost
    BK
    Tri res boots with 10fhr
    torch/anni
    5pcomb
    rest of inventory is filled with life/res sc's with an emphasis on life/lite res or cold res
    switch cta/spirit

    Yeah, I just found myself doubting I could switch weopons effectively. Btw, grief pb or zerker? Also, what about ar. Will I have a decent amount of ar for this setup to work?

    Well, when you think about ar, you need to consider who you will be charging. I have about 7k ar and don't carry any charms to boost it. Thats enough to hit most casters, ie sorc's, boner, zon's, windy. You won't be hitting high def barb's/exile smiters with 7k ar. But then charging a pure smiter is not a good idea. that's why you have hammers!

    I started out with a zerk, and have been trying a pb lately. The pb will get you to 7frame smite (yes i do smite some characters to finish them off, this is why grief is your best choice), whereas the zerk will only go to 8 frames. I think I'll be switching back to the zerk for its superior range. you should try both and see which you like better.

    Skill-wise i went

    Max hammer and its synergies
    Max concentration
    15 charge
    1 medi
    1 salvation - haven't need this yet tho
    1 holy shield

    You could try less in charge and put some points in lite res for the passive bonus. If I ever rebuild I may do that, just to see if my charge effectiveness is reduced.
    I'm still pretty new to the build myself. The learning curve isn't too bad. Plus it helps that most pub duelers are pretty bad to begin with.

    Yeah, well my gear setup atm is CRAP. It's just random items that allow me to use other items, at the time being. But, I will get better items...

    Anyways, libbys are pretty fun to play.

    *hammer run hammer run hammer run watch them chase you, charge them, watch them get hit into the hammers*

    My build is still in the works but for the AR for charge just get a demonlimb and prebuff before the duel. Sorta like a barb does.
