    Prayer group

    I have a question for all the great pally players here.

    there is currently 3 auras that heal due to synergys being Prayer,(forgot),meditation

    My idea was to get a group on east to have chars that use prayer and atleast one of the others maxed.

    My question is if someone uses prayer +40 per second(considering good level)
    another uses meditation +20per second(considering good level)
    and the other uses (forgot) +20per second(considering good level)

    would we get 80 hp back a second or would these auras not stack the prayer bonus. :scratch:

    By the way if we get prayer to 40 (ya right) itll be around 150 hp regen :lol:

    Yes, they definitely do stack. You can test this with a prayer merc and you using cleansing or mediation aura. Look to see how big your healing 'burst' is every 2 seconds.

    Also prayer doesn't work like a normal synergy, just going off base points. Instead it gives with cleansing and mediatation healing exactly equal to the listed healing of prayer itself (with plus skills items). This means your healing can be boosted much higher across the party.

    Possibly a better alternative than three palas with prayer/cleansing/mediation between them is two pala with cleansing and mediatation and a prayer merc. It will be slightly less healing, but prayer has quite a high continuous mana cost otherwise.

    Something to consider would be how you plan on doing damage with this prayer group.

    Well you have my prayers(Athiests can pray too!!!) and best of luck with your group,

    True that prayer uses alot of mana but if one of the paladinshas meditation I see no problem :bow:

    Thanks for the suggestion though but I already have 3 friends waiting so im sure one would be mad If i passed him off for merc but just maybe :lol:


    Ya good point raven hopefully we can all get some sort of distinct combat skill to help eachother out with thanks for the thought ;)

    Well prayer IS a synergy for holy bolt. Three clerics using a 10k plus holybolt would mf the hell mauslem faster then a dozen hammerdins put together, specially if they're gaining 120 health a second or so and never have to worry about mana.

    Just be sure to keep decent resists and maxed blocking

    Well... if i remember right, prayer only synergizes the healing part of holy bolt, and not the dmg.

    :-\

    What if one of us used Holy hammer
    The other used FOH
    and dont know about the third one yet

    With medatitation our mana regen will be pretty good as well. So hammer and foh wont have as much problems. Maybe the third one will be holy bolt extra healing????

    If you're gonna have a party of three, why not have one cleansing, one meditating, one concentrating, and all three blessed-hammering their hearts out?

    You'd have mana 750% mana regen, +90 life every 2 seconds, negligable curse and poison time, and sweet sweet hammer damage x 3.

    I like that, three hammerdins, one with meditation, one with conc, and probably one with defiance, and a maxed out lightning resist aura somewhere, trust me, it'll come in handy.
