    Upd Magefists Vs. Trang Glove for hammer

    I notice alot of hammerdins use trang gloves to get that extra fcr framerate to make tele with an enig faster. I always wondered why not magefists. For good hammerdins... the only benefit coming from the trang was just the fcr and higher def. If you got good gear, the cold res on trang isnt needed at all as well. Trang is about 68def and magefists is 26 or so.

    But with uped Magefists, the def goes to 62. So now they just about match all that the trang can offer but now with mana regen 20% instead of nada with the trang.

    So my thought is, why not more uped magefists. To get just to excep is Shael Tal and Pdiamond, and this should be chump change to most. Elite would yield more if u want to be rich about it. The excep does fine for me.

    Any thoughts on this.... Whats with the trang glove being used and why not uped magefists?

    Well, granted if you have all good combat gear on, resists will likely be maxed out and the 30% cold resist won't matter. However, if one is wearing mostly mf gear, resists are likely to be lower, thus the added Cold resists would matter. Of course if one was doing mf then one would probably have on Chance Guards, but perhaps not. Plus, not everyone has the great weapons and armor like enigma and HOTO, so they must find resists wherever possible.

    But seriously, resist is never a problem for hammerdin, wizardspike + sanctury shield = 190 resist right there, with the three resist quest reward that's 210, how could you not have enough resist.

    Aiight so I guess in summary, Trangs are good for the not so wealthy in need of res. And Uped Magefist is a better option to use over the Trang for the wealthier type. To take the next step would be to elite the item, but the value of lem and ko for the amount of def it will only add probly isnt worth it. That and I am not sure how the str calcs then, but shouldnt be a problem if wearin Enigma and Hoz

    U only use trangs to stack cold resist in pvp... otherwise magefist is a better glove.

    Another reason to use Trang's is for the bonus mana regeneration you receive from wearing the belt as well. Trang's Belt is very good. It also has cannot be frozen on it. Which frees up a ring slot for another SOJ. If you can teleport with Enigma then being frozen might not be that bad. But otherwise its good with hammerdins to be able to move.

    if some cold sorc comes in casting orb/blizz...i dunno

    a hammerdin doesnt really need cbf, its just nice to have, kinda annoying if you do get frozen, and you're running around at 1/2 speed. if it really bothers you, use trangs, or just cham shako/HoZ. cant afford it? raven.

    because, of course, everyone here has an arachnid web that they're not doing anything with.
