    Need ratings, comments, suggestions, criticism, etc...

    I just wrote a smiter guide. However as it's been some time since I actually had the smiter I wrote about, I went from memory... thus I fear I may have miscalculated some things, worded something improperly, or simply overlooked something important. Any thoughts/comments/etc etc are most welcome ;). It's a pvp smiter so I thought I would ask here.

    Now now.

    You did a few mistakes there:
    Suggesting of popular duped items that no more can spawn (such as Soul Spurs)
    Suggesting items that only exist due to a glitch (glitch Zaka, I take it as an ethereal indestructible zaka with 1 open socket)

    Otherwise your guide seems fine after a very quick check. However, I will read it in full soon and then I will see if I find any more mistakes.

    And no, I am not really whining over duped items, just that it's for instance, against of the forum rules, which again prevents it from getting to the guides thread, and such items are not really on all realms (such as those boots, Europe for example has nothing close to those) and as I already said, Soul Slippers can no more spawn (no str on boots, and only +9 max dex, also the resistances are capped at 40%).

    haha way to go. More/stronger smiters, thats exactly what we need in pub these days.

    Would you not suggest using BA Grief against Barbs though? You should have enough str for coa anyways.

    Ty. And I posted legit alternatives to the aslips / sspurs in my final version @ jsp


    If you can make up the ias, certainly. Though I've noticed a trend to if the barb is bad enough to die to a smiter in the first place, it's because you're tele-smiting properly, in which case pb vs zerk doesn't seem to matter.

    A barb that really knows what he's doing won't die to you whether zerk or pb, in which case I would worry more about stacking a bit more dr/life than about range

    yeah the guide looks good but to answer that ba vs pb as stated if ur good with tele smite or desync + charge smite range will not matter where as on the other hand if the barb decides to chuck on slow gear, i.e a clegs + a doom for example, u will drop a few frames in smite speed which will have a big effect vs good barbs etc, greatly reducing the effect of tele-smite.

    I believe vs other ba can be used but then again wots wrong with using a pb vs all?

    incredibly concise guide! :thumbsup:

    the charms setup is a little annoying though... and the strategies assume you have those charms.

    you should just say the stats needed on items instead of listing the dupe names... if that's what it takes for it to get stuck.

    very good guide,i just made one on ladder pretty much nail anyone on pubby except necros and hdins.

    imo those charms are simply needed for this build for tankage, i need to keep switching to a cold resist shield +thul kiras for damaging cold sors otherwise i die in 1 blizz or 2 full orbs.

    about barbs i think you should add a setup to counter doom if they use it, im thinking of a 4 ed ias jewel sacred targe of deflecting or something close

    That means very low defense. If a Barb uses Doom, it means they lose Beast which gives them damage and attack rating. PB resists Doom and is used for telesmiting with flash freeze.

    It's the other way around for me. A simple WW away or clipping sends them crying and complaining about being lame with WW. It's not my fault they shift smite or run smite or charge smite...

    defense doesn't matter unless you can get over like 60k while with 30-40k a bvc with enough ar will still hit you.

    most smiters i seen are charge,charge,smite after a barb i dont see any tele smiters around on L except one

    Very nice guide, you clearly know what you're doing. I wish you were on West so I could change your strat against WW hybrids though.

    Props.

    40k and 60k defense are pretty much the same thing. Barbs can easily hit them with just 20k. Just wondering... how does a Smiter get 60k and a Barb get 40k anyway?

    btw this build gets call sorber alot just because you got 85% light resist all the time,and people notice their damage is not too great.

    you get trash talk by light sors,trapers,fc zons,fohers, while they're Oked with everything they got, convic mercs facets etc 0_0
