    Did you synergize with holy bolt and holy shock?
    Holy shock is +7% Damage per level, that could be the difference there.

    20 Holy shock = +140% bonus

    3.8k + 140% = 9120

    :grin: (if thats how it adds on, I don't know)

    Well you can respec and distribute your points the right way. But top gm players easily resist and sorb fohers and easily beat them.

    +1.

    FoH is one of those skills that will only beat the unprepared. as soon as you encounter anyone with the extra lit res needed to stack out that conviction aura, you're screwed.

    If you want to use it for PvM though, just respec and put points into the right synergies.

    I don't know how common FoHers are for PvM, but it seems decent enough if its fully synergized (holy bolts taking out crowds, main strike the tough monsters, one point in zeal, etc.)

    I can't see foh being effective at all as a main pvm skill. The only thing holy bolt hurts is undead monsters so that's not going to be a big help. Foh itself has a cooldown period and is basically useless against crowds because you can only hit 1 monster per cast and the damage isn't great.

    So in short foh pretty much sucks for pvp and pvm.

    Fohers are only for pvp but vs people that do not have full gm gear. Any good gm dueler would slam an foher like nothing.

    Lets say for exampe a hammerdin. Its a 125/86 build with x37 20 life/resist scs and has sorb gear and all that who would win the hdin or the foher?

    But count the resist part as any sort of resist on the 20 life sc you can get. Obtaining x37 20/5 is pretty much impossible legit.
