i'm makin a kicker right now, i'm using enigma so the not being able to block while moving thing won't hurt me, but i'm still going claw/shield so that i can use a lacerator and if i ever make any of the nifty new chance to cast runewords, i'm also going claw/shield sot hat i don't have to pump fade to get my dr, i wanta pump mindblast cuss i heard that the master will use that skill alot more if thats a high lvl, with 1 point in weopon block, +2 dancers and 10 shadow gc's, your gonna have a good weopon block anywaysdkay said:oh, this is strictly pvp. i thought that claw /shield might be good because i can hit around 3300+ish life with a shield and still have max block and w/b as backup against casters. my main point of a shield is so i ahve a "better" advantage against mele (pallies,druids etc)
lacerator is a ton better than azure, u dont' realize how much damage amp adds, no damage reduction on that open wounds, i would use malice all day anyday over azurewraith, but lacerator imo is by far the best kicker weopon, lvl your kicker up to 89 the ow is pure craziness, if u go azurewraith u can't use enigma and get decent open wounds, so u'll hav ea ton less life, u'll do worse vs casters(malice/jade prob best vs this anyways), can't cblock while running, enigma solves that, i'd take shadow dancers over gores and trangs over dracs, but ofcourse if you disagree with me on your other gear slots, perhaps azurewraith is best for you build. . . but some duels your gonna have to rely on mindblast to win and thats another reason open wounds is better,LagunaCid said:Doom is shiat on kicksins. Holy Freeze is nothing.
+1000 damage, with 500 of them beign magical = G_G
don't worry your opinion on hammerdins > kickers isn't that off even one of the best kickers considers hammerdins as the hardest class for a kicker to go up againstdkay said:heres waht i found out after playing with her for a bit:
hammerdins wearing death glove > kickers ; /
cant really trap lock em and the damage is untortunetely... minimal( of course this is coming from a kicker newb though)
with BoS i ahve very bad resist ~_~
overall fun but still had trouble with defensive necros and hammerdins.
