    Smiter shield for pvp vs. all

    I'm wondering which shield is best for each class. Some people recommend Pheonix paladin shield and some says exile. I want to know which shield I should use for each class. I can afford all the shield ex. exile vortex + exile sacred rondache, phoenix rondache and vortex.

    1.) which shield is best used for smiter vs. smiter?

    2.) which shield for WW barbs?

    3.) which shield for sorc?

    4.) which shield for necros?

    5.) and last for windy.

    Thanks for your help.:listen:

    What makes Upped HOZ so much better than a exile? Also i'm dueling my close friends and we always do BM duels 1 vs 1 and a upped HOZ will still be superior than a exile?

    up'd hoz has more dmg than exile because of the extra skills and has higher block chance making you able to invest more into vit

    in almost all cases you wont have much time to benefit from life tap so better to get as high dmg as possible

    For second option, I will go for exile in a zakarum shield, as it has the most stable damage (46-46)

    I use upped HoZ ber'd most of the time, the only time I switch to exile sacred targe is vs barbs. My pvp paly is a T/V so using HoZ also provides more FoH damage.

    one last question about the tele smiters, i heard you can hit your enemy from a distance if its done right. How is that possible and what are the stragedy for that? It's not listed on camden's guide and his guide is the only tele smiter guide i found and read.

    I think the distance is the fact that you are initially a distance from them, then you tele...

    Anyway, good luck with your smiter... but please please make a hybrid, pure smiters are just so... cookie cutter...

    1) Vs any high HP melee chars, i prefer Exile, Lifetap is just godly, once it procs (20% = 15 exile + 5 drac), it's 100% win.

    2) same as 2

    3) People often underestimate Pally Spirit shield here. If you can make one with base 45 res +35 more from the runeword, thats 80 res all. 55% FHR is just hands down GODLY. And the FCR also helps alot for tele/smite, sometimes it's just impossible to catch up with sorcs, and charge leaves you too vulnerable to their fast firings.

    4) Spirit

    5) Spirit

    I never really liked HoZ, i use it mostly for holy shield prebuff, and switch to other shields. Overall, Hoz is an all around shield, meaning it's "GOOD" for any situation, while spirit and exile are designed to be "Exelent" agaisnt certain classes.
