    Protection vs hammerdins?

    Ok, i always seem to get slapped by almost any hdin on east, and i mean i got decent gear on my din, 5k life with no oak charges, pcomb lifers,etc.But i tend to run into others hammerfields.So i use a eternity 3bh, 2 conc scepter to revives some magic immune wailing beasts in act 3.But gaydins wait it out ,revives expire and call me nooby for revives.I tried using what other hdins do ,merc+oak charges, but they always die. And neither wolves nor the %magic reduce crafted shields work, is there any other protection, i can get besides revives , because they always wait it out on me.Any ideas are appreciated.

    You call them gaydins, yet you use one.... You BM and still get killed and find it a surprise they call you n00b or whatever they use these days.

    There is no true protection for magic damage - gm wise especially not, and BM wise your minion stacking is obviously failing.

    Have you ever given thought that instead of protection you should be looking at a more offensive strat (hint hint hint)?

    merc, revives, wolves?!? All BM. Even had to resort to safety shields? I lol'd. Oak is gm on euro Nl where I duel, dunno bout your realm if its not the same. Try duel private games with gm rules, and practice practice practice. HvH can be tricky and is ultimately dependant on player skill, since damage and hp is always in the same range,

    Re: Protection vs hammerdins?

    If you're going to mention strategy, the most obvious thing is you're not thinking with it. BM or not, you fail because the people who beat you know better than to fall for your simple trick.

    Instead of protection, you need to focus on offense as you won't find solid defense against magic damage - all major pvp magic attacks are too damaging to make integer damage protection ineffective and as people have shown you firsthand, all you have to do is wait out revives.

    Since they finally made magic immunes immune to hammers, it wasn't till the last patch till you strategy would even make sense. The only strategy worthwhile is to look how you can either prevent the hammer spam or get inside while not getting hit by hammers - of course, that's assuming you can avoid the telestomp death in the first place.

    No,Wailing Beasts in Kurast temples where always immune and couldnt die since they are animal,but the hdins are really annoying with their invisible out of nowhere stuff/hammers and 3-screen away smites with grief pbs. Blizzard should remove these desynch hacks and the stack fails somehow,i get pushed out. How do they find you/smite/charge in a whole mess of revives? Dont they got to kill off the stack first?Thats just plain hacking,IMO

    Re: Protection vs hammerdins?

    they'rr hdins. you're a hdin. why are you complaining about desync? it's not like you can't do the same thing.

    very ironic as well that you call your bm revives, summons, and merc 'strategy' (not very strategic if they don't work anyway), but you call desync a 'hack'.

    what double standards.

    and no they don't have to kill off your minion stack first to hit you. they can sift through the minion stack and target you. if minion stacks had to be cleared first, everyone would be playing a wind druid.

    Re: Protection vs hammerdins?

    If the minion moves or the opponent has a NL, then it'll hit you. If it's just a telestomp w/o NL, it'll mostly hit minions and only a slim chance of hitting you.

    EDIT: AoE will hit either way (like a FB).

    There's no need to be hostile. Its BM on all realms afaik, kind of things you would use in pub games (are you dueling HvH in pubs?) but even if it were GM and you still lose with all this stuff, then perhaps you should think of a different strategy / offense?

    No protection just keep your distance while you can.
