    Smiter Questions...

    Hey guys. First post and all that good stuff hah so here goes...

    I just made a smiter and i have the following. 6 Shael'd war axe, Etheral Vortex Exile (no res unfortunately), Dungo's, Gore Riders, Dracs, Shako, Highlords, Soj, Raven spiral, COH Dusk Shroud. I just found a redeemer should i use that instead? or should i try for a Heaven's light.. This is all NON Ladder btw.

    Thanks.

    I would go with the redeemer or heavens lite over the war axe. With the redeemer you will need at least 50% total ias (30more since your useing hlords) to reach the last breakpoint with a lvl 27+ fanat, but the +dmg and the +skills are nice on it, heavens light is good for killing bosses with the %cb, and it already has 20%ias so you would only need 10%more since your useing highlords, and the plus skills and sockets are always nice. For smiters I prefer up'd hoz over exile but thats jut me both are good. Another good option for a weapon if you can't get ahold of a greif is astreons iron ward, skills, %cb, ias, +dmg.

    I would definitely use the Redeemer over a Shael'd War Axe since the +Damage from Redeemer gets added to your Smites; I'd also probably use Redeemer over Heaven's Light

    You might have some speed problems though as with your setup and Redeemer you're at a 7 frame Smite. Since you have Lifetap from Exile switch Dracs for some 20IAS gloves like Laying of Hands and add a 15IAS jewel somewhere to hit 6 frames.

    Well... Since im non-ladder i know its going 2 be alot harder to get what i need... if i use redeemer instead of the shael'd axe will the dmg make up for the insane speed? i smite amazingly fast with the axe heh..

    remember. The KEY FACTORS, that make pvp smiters win are:

    IAS and life. dmg is 2nd, but ...you shouldnt have any dmg below 2k...but just saying...in pvp that smiter isnt gonna go a long ways. though, dont be discouraged, make it, and watch it get better as you get richer.

    For pvm: Just dmg is fine
