    Life SC's and PVM

    Hi All,

    Am not sure if this belongs in the trade forum, but thought i'd ponder it with the general community first.

    The question is, do Life SC's do much for PVM characters? or is it primarily for Deulers?

    Would finding them be more useful to me to sell them rather than hold onto them?

    Am curious the value of these SC's and why they hold value to different classes of players? (LLD? Regular Duels? PVM?)

    Thanks!

    It really depends on how you feel about the life amount on your PVM character. If you do not think you could use the extra life you could always use 7% mf small charms instead. If you think you could use some life holding onto some 17/18/19 life small charms could help, while keeping the 20 lifers to sell.

    Value differs from realm/ladder or non. 20 life small charms are used by most high level duelers while 15 life small charms are used by lower level duelers.

    In general, serious duelers drive much of D2's economy. That is because they want very specialized equipment, and they tend to be rich since they bot and they have loads of FG. When you're mf'ing, you should always keep the dueler market in mind, because after all that is where you'll be able to trade those seemingly useless but extremely valuable items. Otherwise you wouldn't ever think to ID blue Monarchs or blue Greater Claws. It helps then to see what type of gear PvPers desire so that you don't manage to ignore it.

    Now 20 life SCs are always useful, and you can sell them on Ladder East for about Pul. I don't know the ratio of PvM to PvP characters that trade for them; it doesn't really matter. You just ask yourself would you rather use the 20 lifer on one of own characters, or would you prefer to try and shop it for a Pul. The problem with plain 20 lifers, and why you can't be hauling in HRs with them, is that rich duelers won't bother with them except to use them as placeholders; they want a good secondary mod.

    Its pvp only really.

    you can use them in pvm but really only if you pick them up and they aren't valuable.

    Some overpowering characters like hammerdins you are better off with lots of 20 life scs than pcombs.

    20 lifers benefit any low-base-life PvM character, like a Bowzon or an ES sorc

    PvP small charms needs to have a good second mod, like 3/xx ar, 15+mana, 4-5% all res, or 10%+ single res along with the vita suffix. Else its just good pvm charms.

    Why would this be the case? shouldn't life not be too much of a concern at higher levels, and killing power/speed be more of the focus?

    Hammerdins have plenty of killing speed. Getting a 5k+ pvp hammerdin with 10k+ dmg is always nice
