    "Town Guard" Killer.

    So I was playing pubblic duel games with my wind druid yesterday (first time ever playing in a pk game)

    Everything was going good with good manners for the most part with everybody. Then a Blizz Sorc and a Trap Assassin Partied up. Ruined the game. They sat the town entrance and just killed anyone who walked out with traps and blizzard :angy:

    This happened to some extent in different games, but it was always an assassin or sorceress (had fireballer, blizzarder, and lighting...)

    I've been wanting to make an Auradin, and I have the gear to solo hell with him easy enough. Here what I was thinking to have in stash to bring and piss off the BM duelers (I know its BM too, but I'll just hostile them and let everyone else enjoy the game until they rage quit or stop town guarding)

    Fire Absorb: Fireball/Meteor
    2x Dwarf
    Infernostride

    Lightning Absorb: Light sorcs, Trapsins
    2x Wisp
    Thundergods Vigor

    Cold Absorb: Blizz, Orber
    2x Ravens
    Snowclash

    Hopefully that is enough Absorb of any single element to take them out and not even be fazed :grin:

    Let me know if these would do the trick. I can post the other gears that I'll be wearing (for normal play with this build) but this is the PvP forum, so... Right to the point.

    EDIT: I know I would probably have better luck putting in my hammerdins stash and using them (and I might if the Auradin doesn't have enough resists) but not even touching them, tanking (healing?) from their attacks, and still killing them would be even more fun :evil2:

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    it's not advisable to play an auradin against bmers. even if you stack, tgods heals them, and a rising sun solves almost all the problems from holy fire.

    bm trappers are hard to deal with as a druid definitely. trappers are one of, if not the worst match up for a windy.

    the easy way out would be to make a character to counter every bm character you expect to see in pub games, but in my opinion, if you expect to do well in pvp, you should find ways to duel all of them using the character you want to specialize at.

    for me, i find i actually duel quite a number of modding hammerdins pretty well with my smiter. and i seriously have no troubles with any other chars in pub games.

    Dang.

    WW Sins, and Trapsins... and Zons :(

    I just can't get them with my druid. What if I use the 2x wisp and Tgods on my druid to take out Town Guarding trapsins? Would it be sufficient to elminate their damage?
    The only thing to worry about after that is :censored: mind blast.

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    that is generally considered bad-mannered though and i think you would do well to try to play gm as much as possible. if anything, by forcing yourself to play legit, it forces you to come up with actually viable tactics to duel a variety of characters because you simply cannot rely on 2 wisps and a tgods carrying you to a victory.

    i dun play a druid so i can't help you there. i mean i have a working knowledge of their breakpoints and what they're supposed to do etc, but a better person to ask would definitely be angryteen. =D

    if you have any pally questions feel free to ask me though. i'll try to help as much as i can.

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    Do you guys just leaves games with people who town guard?

    It's usually not right away, they lose a bunch first, then get pissed and town guard/NK.

    Suppose just leaving the game is best :\

    Angryteen has been helping me quite a bit actually :)

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    just wanted to say that pk and dueling are two different things. pk is more of a HC activity in which someone enters a non duel game, hostiles people, tracks them down (the ones dumb/brave enough to stay) and attempts to kill them. people in a duel game, know they're going to be fighting.

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    i normally just get out there and beat them. =p or hang around in town until they feel stupid.

    i actually think town guarders aren't that bad. it's the modders that are sometimes a little frustrating.

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    Well if ur a windy you can manhandle townguard sorcs, foh-ers, hdins or necs by going out there and stomp them with cyc armor/ minions/health pots/juves etc. Throw a sin into the equation and theres nothing much u can do sadly(unless ur partied with a pally who gives u lightning resist aura).

    Haha i usually just wait for some sorbed up smiter or something to kill the tg-ing sin then i go out to kill her friends. Then nk etc until they leave. :)

    **** talking while in town and refusing to go out leads to some pretty amusing situations i must say.

    If you want to kill elemental chars make either a stacked res pala or barb and just laugh at them ^^

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    Masterazn’s PvP Auradin Guide
    Theres the guide to kill town guard casting noobs. Its all BM though. I'm gunna check and see if you can still stack holy shock auras (999X times) and use the auradin to goldfind.

    1 pulse kill the screen? Epic Trav runs.

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    Some guy on the forums said the aura stacking still works.

    If you can't beat BM with GM, use BM. Who cares? Win!

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    Yeah, it would be sweet if it did. I kind've hope it does just to save me time getting gold for gambling. Guess I'll find out lol.

    GM beating BM is epic though.

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    bloody pathetic. talk about aura stackers and game crashers. If you get bent in half by a blizz sorc and a trapper, maybe you should consider practicing your windy who is an arguably top tier dueling champ instead of making a sorbing stacker.

    Re: "Town Guard" Killer.

    slap on a blackhorn tgod wisp and run their traps out until it is of mutual interest to unhostile each other.

    or

    stay away from trapper, run from trapper. anyone playing super defensive has a chance against their direct class counter. camp houses. whatever.
