PvP Shaman build This is a build I've seen and dueled against, and am now building one for myself (it was designed by clan_iraq on the bnet forums, who also has a guide for it, all credit goes to him). I've found it to be an extremely effective build, both in PvP and PvM. I haven't seen anyone mention a similar build on these forums, and thought I'd bring it here for opinions. I am not going to go through strategies with this right now, as I don't want to copy and paste clan_iraq's guide. I'm just going to lay out the skill points and basic gear options briefly here, and I'll be posting again tomorrow to answer any questions raised. Skills: Elemental: Remaining points in Firestorm 20 Molten Boulder 20 Fissure 20 Volcano 1 Armageddon / prereqs Summoning: 1 Oak Sage 1 Heart of the Wolverine 20 Grizzly / prereqs Fissure is maxed first, followed by Grizzly, Volcano, and then Molten Boulder. Optimal Equipment: HotO Enigma (probably mage plate) Spirit Ravenlore Tgods Magefists Sandstorm Treks / Rare boots / Hotspurs Mara's SoJs / BK rings (absorb rings in stash, if you are so inclined) 5 Elemental GCs, 5 Summoning GCs, Anni, small charms to add to resists. Strength: enough for equip Dexterity: base, unless you plan to use Wizardspike (HotO is probably better) Vitality: everything else Energy: none This build has game vs. just about everything. Attacks are varied, and useful in many situations. Fissure is generally your best tool against melee characters, when you can lay it behind you and drag people through it. Hits many times. Doesn't work very well against casters though, as they tend to teleport out of it. Volcano is a great tool against casters, as you can namelock someone with it. It does a lot of physical and fire damage, and will usually stun someone for several seconds, giving you time to teleport in with a Grizzly. Often kills casters in one cast. Grizzly is just amazing. When you teleport onto someone, your Grizzly will hit them immediately, often killing weaker characters in one hit. You can do drivebys with this against most people. Also useful defensively, the bear will hit people who try to teleport on top of you. Molten Boulder is primarily used against Wind Druids, where it is really necessary. They're tough to kill by other methods sometimes. A Molten Boulder will knockback and hit several times, doing monstrous damage. It takes practice to get them to hit, but it's not too difficult once you get the hang of it. This is also maxed before Firestorm because it adds physical damage to your Volcano, the most important part of that attack. I hope this has been interesting...it's a tried and true PvP build by this point. Once again, I take no credit for this build, but I don't think the inventor posts on these forums and I thought you guys might like to get a look at it. I'll be back tomorrow to answer any questions.
