    PvP using Widowmaker?

    ..could it be viable?
    There are a few guides in the sticky about ranged attackers using different sources of enchant, but I might fear that they have gotten somewhat dusty.
    All suggestions on gear/skills/everything welcome!

    simply NO. your attact is all range anyway,what is the pt? aslo your dex is too low,so the damage is no use.The only non-zon who like to use it are venom sin and barb

    Even paladins with their aura.

    I just don't see any use of a widowmaker on a sorc. If you were to use a bow then that fire arrow bow would probably be your best bet.

    The 300%ED from forti and high enchant could help though?
    How much firedamage would I get from, say, lvl40 enchant (fully synnergized) taking into account that it is nerfed on ranged attacks?

    It would have to be played extremly defensive of course, but with fast tele (lots of fcr on switch of some kind) that should make her less of a sitting duck than a bowazon.
    But then again, I rarely ever play sorcs...

    Still can't see it working well against any real pvp players.

    You are overlooking the Dream-helmet.. A Dreamhelmet with max LM, Enchant, Warmth, FM and Telek will give a cool dreamdmg. Not superhigh, though, since ranged attacks only get the mastery applied once.

    I did some thinking about a char like this, and you ended up not reaching all the bps you want: either you tele slow and fire slow or vice verse..

    Helm: Andy Visage (20 ias, can add another 15 from jewel)
    Amulet: Highlord (20 ias)
    Chest: Fort (comes with 25 FCR)
    Weapon: Widowmaker (Shael)
    Ring 1: FCR ring with STR, DEX and Res
    Ring 2: Ravenfrost
    Gloves: IK (25% IAS bonus with 2 piece)
    Boots: IK (see above)
    Belt: Nosferatu's Coil (10% ias, 15 strength, life leech, 10% slow)

    On switch:

    Fire Eschuta (40% FCR)
    Spirit Shield (35% FCR)


    This leaves us with 110 FCR for teleporting on switch, and 110 ias if you jewel the visage.

    Seems good enough for me *shrug*

    Edit: blah lol

    I really really still don't see this going anywhere decent even in pub. This looks like the kind of build where you go back and forth from moor to prebuff =/
    Cta-> Bloodmoor->BO->Town->Switch to enchant/teleport.

    Re: PvP using Widowmaker?

    But has anyone ever tried it?
    Just want to try something different as stated in the first post.
    Stupid as it probably is, where would you put your skills and stats though?

    synx: thanks for the setup suggestion. Getting 200fcr while maintaining good ias will obviously be hard, if not impossible..

    It didn't even pass the planning stage, you would have to hack in order to make something like this even decently work.

    Re: PvP using Widowmaker?

    damage would be decent my enchant sorc has around 6k dmg
    with melee dmg it is multiplied upon impact by fire mastery
    ranged sadly stays at those 6k
    that 6k dmg uses only 60 of your skill ppoints so you can invest in thunderstorm,es,...
    ar shouldnt be a problem when using angelics
    i use the amulet and the ring and have 8-9k ar
    what could be a problem is the speed
    I have no idea if what im about to say is true but i believe when using another classes skills you count as that class
    for example: sorc with 5shael phaseblade is 2.5 attacks per second
    however when im a bear i have 4-5(not sure)
    if this is the case with guided arrow as well i hink this could be a rather decent build

    As Borje first suggested, a dream helm combined with lightning mastery would be your best bet with widowmaker. On the switch you could also sport a dream shield and passion phaseblade to zeal in close combat situations.
