    Lvl 25+++ Conviction?

    The higher lvl Conviction overrides the weaker one in a duel. Keep in mind I'm talking about my Mage, where your skills are extremely valuable and you can't even spend 1 in Medi or Redemp. He's wearing double sojs / spider.

    So do you think it is a smart move to anticipate this and get a lvl 26 Conviction, so I can overpower the rest of FoH'ers / V/T's / Mages?

    Or do you think I should get lvl 27 so I can wear TGod's and still overpower 25 Convictions?

    Or maybe 28 so I can wear TGod + Wisp?

    Or 29 so I can wear TGod + Wisp and still overpower someone who thought they were smart by getting lvl 26 conviction, with my lvl 27 conv?

    How much do pure fohers put in conv? Do they aim for 25 as well or do they just pump it since they have so many skill pts lying around?

    I do not know about everyone, but at least on my Foher, he has 20 base points to Conviction, making his conviction about lvl 40ish with gear. Too bad I've never really used him (outside of PvM), but I still put 20 in Conviction specifically for other fohers.

    Holy..... :lipsrsealed:

    Bleh maybe I'll just go 26 and not use wisp or tgod against other mages/v-t's.

    Then you should have a point in Resist Lightning, as it will be the aura of choice when your Conviction is negated.

    Hmm very good idea. That will also allow me to put some minor lightning proof gear on.

    Do you think I need Resist Cold for cold sorcs?

    IMO no.

    You'll never be able to outpower Fohers in convic because they usually max it. V/Ts no need since they do not have enough +2skills compared to mages.

    T/V will probably be the hardest class since they will have a higher lvl convic. For mine I went with 26 and is kinda wasted IMO. Since most T/Vs now build with 26. :undecided:

    Hmm... T/V's are devastating to mages.. I'll always have to have Resist Lightning on, but they can switch between fanat/conv..

    They will only switch to fana when they are close, by then you can easily hammer them. My T/v has convic on 24/7 when I am away from my opponent even when I charge. This is what makes T/V a hard opponent.

    Though I usually try tele smiting since fohing = boring duel.

    idk wat your set up is but my mage is pretty flexible. a 4 topaz elite pally shield with resist will help. then for pdr gear i put on a berd shako and 15 dr dungos and with enigma i get 41 pdr which isnt bad. hoto and trangs and either fcr ammy or rings will still keep you at 75fcr with some pretty good survivability

    Here's a thought: Just stack against lightning. :]

    My incompletemage has 357 light stack without any gear swaps. Just prepare for it so you can ignore FoHers ~_~

    V/T is Smite/Foh (more smite)
    T/V is Foh/Smite (more foh)

    I use 9x pcombs and 10x life/light scs.

    40 hoto + 30~ amulet + 53 ring + 110 SCs + 15 torch + 19 anni + 50 HoZ + 40~ boots. The only real dupe is the ring, but I'm sure you could just use a 30~ light res ring and still be fine. I use an soj as the 1st ring, so if I needed I could drop it and add a FCR ring [which would get me to 125 using wizspike + tgod]

    357 - 150 conviction - 100 hell - 25 FRW scepter [west specific] = 82 light res. If I really need more [or if I want to get more stack using a tgod, then I'd just switch in my wizspike w/ 15 res all jewel for an additional 50. That would negate a perf Griffon w/ 5/5 facet and even a 4x Facet shield. This still allows me to use a tgods.

    Just stack them. Pure FoH is probably the most retarded thing I have ever seen; but most likely insta-kill click is out of the question against me.

    Lol that's almost like my hdin setup, mega stack all.

    I'm not going that crazy on this mage, I definitely will use soj over a res ring. And I'm using a 45 base sacred targe 35% spirit so that will help a lot. Don't know if I can gather such good life/lr scs.

    Against FoHers, I'll just put on dual wisp with tgods and grief charge/smite.

    Problem's with T/V's. V/T's conviction I hear is pretty low, but maybe against T/V I need to use Resist L. :undecided:

    thanks for all the input.

    This is what i head aboot conviction for palli vs palli

    if you have a lower level conviction than the other guy

    his overrides yours

    so you get -res but he keeps his res

    but

    if you right click your own conv aura every second

    it keeps your res max vs any level of conviction

    hmm this post made me think about making mage but those pc sks with life ;/
    Im not rich(tbh atm only chars i have is bvc which i wont sell and wind dru with crap items and 25-30 life skillers) is it worth to make cheap mage ?( i could sell my druid and 2 griefs but that wont give me better skillers i think ;/) -im on eu ld btw.

    ps. in my opinion now mage is better than hammer
    he has only lower life ,same dmg( is that realy true ?) and foh
    i worry about blizz sorc does u have enough stack on hell vs them ?
