Oldschool lancer revived? How does this sound for pvp (I've tested it on open and hell is a cakewalk with no charms), I realize a s/s or zerk/s would probably be better but I like 2 handers, and a eth botd tmaul has about 15 more max then a war pike, same speed, and 2 less range, plus it looks ***, and a shield won't really help you against a wwbarbs biggest problem (casters, smiters), basically I'm getting nostalgic for a lancer Eth BoTD War Pike Chains of Honor (probably in Archon, Shadow Plate is my favorite looking but it's just too much strength, and I don't really want to tele with a melee char, I'd rather rely on skill) Verdungo's Hearty Cord Arreat's Face(possibly Ber, the upgraded defense is not worth it to me) Steelrend (other possibility would be Dracul's, what do you guys recommend?) Gore Riders (Upgraded is too much strength I think) 2 Raven Frosts for the attack rating Highlord's Wrath (Other option might be Metalgrid, but I like the deadly strike a lot) Switch - 2 Echos, maybe demon limb for ar Charms would be Annihilus, +max, ar, life, and maybe a couple mastery charms I have lying around, and a couple poison (under 300 probably) Stats would be basic, I'm not going with the gear from +stats on my items, because I want people to see my gear str - enough to use gear, which would probably be my armor or lance, so 165 or 196 if I use this sup hellforge I have lying around dex - going to need 106 to use war pike >.< not that much of a sacrifice since I need AR anyway vit - the rest, I'm looking at about 3xx at level 90 or so Skills would be WW build 20 ww 20 spear mastery 20 bo 20 shout 3 in nat resists (125 in hell before nat resists, so I'd need level 9, so level 3 base. Rest into Iron Skin, I'm basically relying a lot on 15kish defense to help me against most melee, I realize against a high ar 50% dr/block melee I will be at a big disadvantage but I guess I'll have to learn to use range 5 again. Any comments and suggestions would be great, I'd have to mf a lot to get all this gear together.
