    quick easy question

    When I switch to dual dooms on my bvc, my strength drops and I don't have enough to equip my CoA, which sucks if i'm actually trying to duel things with the dooms.

    How do you get around this?

    I'm wearing trang gloves / arachs.

    Switch to draculs/tgods?

    How much STR have you added?

    You should only need to use Draculs to have your Dooms and CoA. Plus you rarely ever need Trangs + CoA anyways. Using TGod's for only the STR is foolish.

    My pub setup has been arachs, trangs, highlords and 2 ravens or 1 raven and angelics when lots of paladins are in game.

    This is kind of a dumb question but am I even hitting the fcr breakpoint? It's 40 right?

    Yeah like matchuk said I thought trangs / coa was the "normal" setup?

    Not sure what my base strength is will check on that when I get home from work.

    You're stressing too much on the 40% FCR.

    Myself and morotsjos (who happens to be the best BvC on Europe (sorry Mat, had to name you!) have used 20% FCR always.

    40% is only really needed versus sorcs and some boners.

    As for the "normal" pubsetup, something like this:
    CoA
    Enigma
    Grief
    Beast
    Arachnid
    2* Ravens
    Triple resistance boots
    Draculs
    Highlord's
    2* Dooms

    And no, I've not found myself handicapped while playing with 20% FCR. It's still 11 frames, which is quite fast.

    Actually, that's the setup that mcm has been using for a while. But always have BvCs been using Draculs and 2* Ravens or FCR rings. The 40% FCR is not necessary by far. Morotsjos would be a living proof of that.

    Very cool. Well I will switch out the trangs for the dracs and see how the tele'ing goes. That will also help with the strength for the dooms.

    Also on a side note with the dooms. Currently have 2 x ettin, just got 1 zerker, if I mix them will half of my doom hits be range 3 and the other have be range 2? (In the process of upgrading :smiley: )

    I think it is that way, making it so that you have to be in range 2 to assure that you get all the possible hits.

    well for me i dont have coa so dracs i only use for ow so i remain using my trangs :p

    tho i do have a pair of 30+light/30+cold?10fhr rare boots i bought, should i use those in pub or gores, if i use those i lost alot of run speed and my res is maxed with cold bit stacked from trangs... if i need to stack vs foh/cs zons/some assasins the stack from boots wont be enuff i normally just go boots/kirasort/tgods/2fcr rings with lil light res

    should i go gores or res boots in pub?
