    so how does someone KILL a trapper?

    the closest match i did was a hybrid zon, i dont have a barb or a pally or necro.. but i did have a 35k light sorc, and it got fried. i think he said his trapper has 112fcr? isnt that a bp? im building a charger/smiter at the moment but i was wondering what equipment should i use to kill a trapper? i dont want to make a hdin. or in any case, if a smite/charger cannot kill a trapsin, what character CAN? thanks.

    trappers are probably one of the strongest pvp builds overall when controlled by a good player. i think your best bet will be some sort of melee character with a bit of lightning +max res (charger/smiters are good). necros can beat them as well, but thats much closer to a 50/50.

    Re: so how does someone KILL a trapper?

    yeah tienje, i used and followed your pvp zon hybrid very well with minor tweaks and man.. i just dont get how that stunlock just rapes you. i understand that the more fhr you have, the faster you get out of stun lock but are there other ways to bypass it? and since assassins teleport, i have enigma on my paladin, should i tele and charge or tele smite or have a tele charge then smite? i also understand that fade gives dr per level, so basically that would hinder smite a little bit too right? here is what i have .. tell me if its doable?

    helm: shako (what to socket here?)
    amulet: 2pally/9%fcr/27str/18dex with some minor mods
    rings: raven / bk
    belt: dungos
    shield: upgraded hoz (what to socket?)
    weapon: astreon's ward (UM'd)
    glove: dracul's.
    boot: gore riders.

    anything i should switch? should i use exile vortex instead of hoz?

    WSG is your friend, whenever you get into a mindblast lock, or stuned by trappers, walk away while pressing the weapon switch button(default 'W') fast.

    use a grief and tgods, exile if you need the life tap.

    charge will usually work better against a trapper, but the occasional desync tele/smite would work wonders as well.

    WSG is "Weapon Switch Glitch" it's a glitch in which by hitting "w" to switch from your main to secondary weapons you reset, so to speak, your Hit-Recovery Animation. This effectively allows you to get out of locks caused by the trapper.

    Re: so how does someone KILL a trapper?

    i usually kill trappers by reducing them to zero health before they do the same to me :)

    ok, not very helpful i know.... the trick is not to get stunlocked. if the MB you, break off the attack until the swirlies go away and regroup for another attack.

    you're lit sork shouldn't have many hassles with a wep/shield trapper, but against a c/c one, your at a distinct disadvantage.

    a charge/smite pally should do ok'ish, learn how to telesmite.

    yeah the sin was a dual claw trapper. really tough.. took 1/4 hp but she broke my es easily. im thinking of a BvC however.. if i get stunlocked, would i walk away from it too? and telesmiting, i get the concept but i need a lot of fcr to get a good tele right?

    Re: so how does someone KILL a trapper?

    i personally think that bvc vs trapper is overrated. a good trapper will always rape bvc in gm ft5 (assuming gm = tgods or similar).


    anyways, i think what causes most trouble for most (average) trap players are very good necros, VTs/smiters (max charge helps), potentially bvc.
    however, a good trapper can beat all of those.
    very good windies and hammerdins can get even good trappers into trouble but this is only if you are very experienced on those characters and familiar with all the subtleties of those builds and if you are a very seasoned namelocker. hammerdin should go for 2 hit kills via 15k damage setup to stand a chance.

    Re: so how does someone KILL a trapper?

    There aren't too many "good" trappers though, while a good trapper will take down a good barb, an average bvc will pk the **** out of the average trapper a player may run into. Personally I find bvc to be a very effective character for stomping 99% of c/c trappers, takes very little effort most of the time, stomp vroom vroom dead trapper. Of course its a whole different story and a very difficult duel if the bvc is dueling someone that knows what they are doing.

    Its kinda like necro vs trapper, on the average vs average player balance, I hear a lot of necros whine about how impossible it is to avoid getting stunlocked, on the higher end of gameplay however necros are one of the hardest matchups for pure trappers because of how impossible it is to keep them stunned or even get ls to hit them, even with good namelocking and fb stomping.

    A hammer works fine. 1 point holy shield and rest in resist lightning to get + max lightning resist. Put on thundergods vigour belt and 2 20% wisps rings and you are immune. For a hammer to die to a trapper is a disgrace.

    Oh oh oh, don't forget Lightsabre, and Hotspurs+Rising Sun if the bad sin tries to BM you with FB. That should do it :coffee:

    typical nub hammerdin tactics: pile on the sorb.

    you know, a good hammerdin doesn't need any sorb to do well in vs all duels.
