    Re: What owns a smite paly?

    my smiter usually stacks with kira+trang gloves+griswolds 3 diamond shield and 2 x 30 cold res gc + salvation. there are also @res charms, anni, torch...Locke07 you do the math
    ofc 2x ravens on me

    same thing you can do for foher, fire sorc, light sorc, even more easily

    if you wanna kill smiter use winder, boner with revives, hammerdin or extreme bvc. smiter have advantage over bvc cause usually they play with exile, have 30k+ defense and max block, and smite always hits

    I suppose if you wanted to design and carry with you the requisite gear to make the PvP blizz sorc an easier win you could, but by carrying all those that which you mentioned you severely limit your gear when fighting other characters.


    Don't tell me you that specific gear for every other character that will use elemental damage...

    I'm not saying that a Blizz sorc is the best character to kill Smite/Chargers with because I'm quite confident it would be a Necro or a Druid, but I just think you're severely underestimating the power of a well built PvP Blizz sorc. I'm not talking about armchair PvP/MF Characters that put on a Nightwings instead of their shako and call themselves a PvP blizz sorc.

    Smiters and Hammerdins can easily stack against any opponent without crippling their offense. They might lack a bit in other departments, but that's okay, because they are purposely focusing against one specific character. Blizzard being an almost one-hit kill to most characters is good enough reason to keep massive stack against cold in stash. Yes, a blizzsorc can still win, though it will take a long time and a lot more skill and patience.

    apparently they havent fought a blizz sorc use like 4x 5/5 facet monarch and perfect fanthom and nightwing ormus etc.

    it's still hard to stack against that in hell really.

    LOL

    if you want you can stack vs blizz sorc teamed with conviction pally (for aditional -150 @). and death fathom is somehow less dangerous then perfect domm vs massive stackers

    Re: What owns a smite paly?

    It's pretty much been already stated, but again, it's quite easy to negate ANY element and often 2-3 at once. There's nothing hard about it, and it's why for pubbing your never going to GG everything.

    Physical damage, Magic damage. These are the most rounded attacks available.

    Any pally with with the usual pvp gear can turn on the 1point salv or single res aura. With the stack and some sorb there is nothing any elemental build is going to do to the commited "stacker". But I do love the 1 trick pony sorcs who cry because they didnt plan on someone having a dwarf and hotspurs , or My favorite, the farcasting CS zon or town guarding trappers.

    Sorb/stack , collect ear and Yawn. :coffee:

    Vs smite?

    well again, physical or magic.

    WW barbs/sins
    Lucky range 5 melee'ers (ouch no shield, going to lose more then win, but at least you cant be sorbed)
    Bone necro'
    Windies
    hammerdins
    Very well played bowas

    Anything else is a crapshoot with reguards to knowing your opponent and hoping they dont have a stash full of swap outs for the res.
    All elemental damage can be reduced, sorbed/stacked or negated
    Poison , see above. Though not as common.

    Re: What owns a smite paly?

    cryptic is range 4

    this are the range 5 elite weapons:
    mancatcher
    ghost spear
    war pike
    great poleaxe
    giant tresher
    matriarchal spear
    matriarchal pike

    of the elements, poison is least likely to be stacked. but there are always antidotes, fade or reduce poison length items.

    i managed to kill smiter with poison dagger necro using stacked revives slowing him first with clay golem. i got lucky roll and 1 hit was enough.

    any char can kill any char, but for continous winning you must use one of the already mentioned chars

    Re: What owns a smite paly?

    Chars that own my smiter are mostly hammerdins that d sync and necros mostly the bone wallers windys are an interesting duel too and I've never had a problem with Bvbs or BvCs shift smite or walk smite works great as long as you don't chase them

    Just thought i would give some advice from the opposite side and if you want practice dueling a well geared smiter I'm on west Non-ladder so if ya want pm and i will help ya (or anyone really)

    my smiter would pwn those sillr arrogant babas.

    only hammerdins would be really annoying. (those who just stand shiftspamming hammers are izi, telesmiteded)

    and necros are really annoying. If ur lucky chargelocke them dont even try getting cute telesmiting rofl rofl rofl. a good necro u cant get to.

    rest of chars are EEEEEEAAAAAAAZZZZZZZZIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
