    pvp dream questions

    do you need to max salvation or is the damage enough with just resist lightning

    and has anyone tried a bear dreamer for pvp?

    It's 12% increase from rl and 4% from salvation so not much gained from 20 points salvation, but salvation works for holy fire and freeze too. If you pure dreams I'd go another form of dmg like max hs/smite for grief smite, but with hf on hoj n dragon I'd consider salvation.

    Forgot to add that it's 4% damage increase for hshock but 6% for hfire

    no enhanced aura damage on bear, but are you talking about bear pally with 'beast'? never seen one

    I prefer to not max Salvation, and instead I prefer to max Zeal, Charge, or some other offensive attack skill that will help with AR. AR is one of the Dreamer's weaknesses in PvP. Smite is great to use as a back up if you have Grief plus a good shield but then you aren't using lightning damage from your dual dreams.

    If your going to be playing your pally as a bear, max both. You can't use charge/zeal/smite/etc while in bear form anyways.

    i was thinking of being a def whore bear, max holy shield/defience along with 25 conv max light res and max blesses aim.

    for pubbys would i be better maxing salvation insted of defiance?

    and has anyone ever tried this?

    Coming from an experienced bearzon player, I can say you are most definitely going to need maxed blessed aim since you have no source of a percent ar boost from an attack skill.

    I've read about sorcs that are similar, in that they use duel dream and bear form with a 6 shael phase, or something that's really fast, and then defense whore with energy shield and frozen armor, using enchant to boost ar. I would say that they can hit harder, due to how masteries and holy shock work out. The sorc may be tougher as well, seeing as how they aim for 90 damage absorb w/ shield. But if your hell bent on making a pally, consider reading this.
