PvP Lightning Zon

Well after reading Jek's lightning zon guide I decided I wanted to make one for myself. However, Im not much for pvm so I decided to make one for pvp. Im pretty sure Jek's guide is directed more towards pvm. Are there any crucial differences? What gear/stats/skills are ideal? Btw Im nonladder, so the ladder gear is obviously unattainable.

There is a difference in pvp and pvm. Is that what your asking?

STATS
for pvp most of stat points go to vitality. Minimum strength to hold your equipment and minimum dex to reach 75% block rate.
However for pvm, dex zons are more common. About 60-100 vitality is enough as more damage is better for monsters.

ITEMS
Yes they do differ.
In pvp you must wear items to maxamize or at least close to max resist ESPECIALLy lightning. FOH pallies, trap assasins are very common duelers. Insufficient light resist will end your health bar in one hit. For pvp, high block rate shields are better. Damage reduction should also be considered.

For pvm, you would wear +skill mod items. You do not need to worry too much about resist. You need to focus more on MF so that you find better gear.

SKILLS
Yes they do differ
for pvp skills like MS, FA, PS, are limited. Guided, CS is more used.

for pvm, the opposite since there will be mass monsters, you would rather go with MS or LF.

Actually I wanted help on pvp lightning zons not zons in general. Thanks for trying to help though.

The build is Simple, spend all point on CS, LF, PS, TB, prereq’s , get dodge to 50 w/ skills rest in LS

Equip (IMO): Shako, cat’s eye or high lord’s, eth titan’s (t-stokes are better for this build but not on ladder) , enigma (a must for necros) or 120/45 Giz’z armor (my fav :) ), SS, 20ias +2 passive or java gloves, raven + raven spiral, t-gods, wartrav.
6 java (w/ life is nice) gc, 15 (w/ life is nice) all resist gc, 6x 5fgr sc, 10x life w/ resist sc

Use CS and TB as they require no AR. PS does more dmg and kills better, but needs a lot of AR boost.

Now bring me ears!

yes I mean 50%
I wouldn’t worry about avoid and evade 1 point is enough for each.
Remember the is pvp not pvm, why are u running away? If you are you've already lost, your ear just didn't fall off :)
As far as missiles: slow missiles!

LB is Lightning Bolt
LF is for pvm NOT pvp!!!
LB is FAR better; I kill just as fast w/ LB as I do CS!!
(Ever wonder why thunderstroke’s have +3 on LB ;) )

btw I used imp shank over the wartraveler’s. Trap assassins aren’t a prob now
