    My FFA WW Idea.

    NOTES TO HELP WITH MY IDEAS.

    I like to duel in FFA games. I already do pretty well in FFA duels too.

    I don't care for winning against Hammerdins, Smiters, Summoner Necromancers and Sorceresses that teleport a lot - though I can usually get them, too. I don't really care for Barbarian Vs. Barbarian duels either, kinda boring.

    I don't usually like to switch around my items either, unless it's a 1v1, which hardly happens.

    My idea for items.

    Helmet: Crown of Ages. Ber/Ber.
    Body: Enigma. Archon Plate.
    Gloves: Dracul's Grasp.
    Boots: Gore Riders... Tri-Resistance Boots?
    Belt: Verdungos.
    Weapon 1: Grief Berserker Axe.
    Weapon 2: Beast Berserker Axe.
    Weapon Switch 1: Doom Berserker Axe.
    Weapon Switch 2: Doom Berserker Axe.
    Ring 1: Ravenfrost. 20 Dexterity/High Attack Rating.
    Ring 2: Ravenfrost. 20 Dexterity/High Attack Rating.
    Amulet: Highlord's Wrath... any better ideas?


    Other things: I have a Stormshield that I will sometimes use, and I plan to get a Widowmaker, maybe.

    I was wondering if this is a good item layout.

    NOT REALLY IMPORTANT.

    This is what I currently use. It's fun, and good for FFA - Melee and Casters.


    Helmet: Arreat's Face. 40 ED/15 IAS.
    Body: Enigma. Archon Plate.
    Gloves: Dracul's Grasp.
    Boots: Gore Riders.
    Belt: Verdungos.
    Weapon 1: Ethereal Breath of the Dying Berserker Axe.
    Weapon 2: Beast Berserker Axe.
    Weapon Switch 1: Doom Berserker Axe.
    Weapon Switch 2: Doom Berserker Axe.
    Ring 1: Ravenfrost. 20 Dexterity/High Attack Rating.
    Ring 2: Angelics Ring.
    Amulet: Angelics Amulet.

    I use my Ethereal Breath of the Dying and Beast against all, then switch to my two Dooms to fight Amazons and some other melee. Works real well. I cannot beat Zealers and Smiters too well. I think the COA will help.

    So you're making a Blobs-style BvC...

    If you do not wish to switch around your items, I suggest you rather use Arachnid's Mesh and Trang-Oul's Claws. Allows 40% FCR, and from your CoA and Enigma you should already have all the DR you need.

    Also, for FFA, you should use triple resistance boots, as there are always sorcs or fohers or trappers or javazons in all games. Except BvB ones.

    CoA will give more room for error, but the truth lies deep within yourself (a phrase from a game, I think). If you can whirl close to perfectly or perfectly, you do not necessarily even need DR versus Smiters.

    Well, the things you need to achieve: high resistances (VERY high lightning stack if you wish to duel fohers without switching gear), 40% FCR, high mana, high DR%, high life, 48% FHR, decent damage.

    I do not know if you've seen that little part of my guide that talks about charms, so I will post the "FFA" setup here.

    Read the whole thing and give it some though.

    Yeah, my plan was to get at least a lot of FHR and AR charms.

    Some things I will swap are:
    Arachnid Mesh/Verdungo's
    Beast/Stormshield

    Ce Olba, you've always helped in my Barbarian threads. :thumbsup:

    Along with what I listed, the only things I want clarification on are:
    Double Ravenfrosts, and Highlord's Wrath. Are those the best choices?

    Overall yes, as with anything else, you will need to add lots of points to desterity and you will lack safety from cold damage.

    Oh and one more thing, I have an Archon Plate Enigma, is there a better choice even if I don't mind paying costs to repair.

    EDIT : How many SOJs are the tri-resistance boots. Name if you are non-ladder or ladder and tell how much they go for. Or, if you know both. That'd be good.

    To answer your boot question...

    I payed 3 SOJs for mine, stats were...

    10FHR/+15AR/~35LR,FR,CR

    So anywhere from 3-whatever the dupes are worth.
