    When to use fort?

    I heard fort is best when used against smiters... but then i realized that u cannot use fort+coa+dungle at the same time... so im forced to use tgod which is not useful against smiters... so when should i use fort?

    Versus Smiters and Hammerdins.

    39% DR is enough for just about any smiter.

    And TGod's or a ow belt is the best possibly imaginable belt.

    If you cannot duel smiters without having the extra 15% DR from Dungo's, consider your dueling again.

    its not about the forti its about wearing coa with forti. coa reqires 174 str so one needs dracks+str belt+ beast to wear coa + fortitude

    Your Beast, if equipped with 36+ strength, will allow you to wear CoA without Enigma, or any other +strength. BA require 138 str, so +36 more str will give you 174.

    You you will need 138 STR before that.

    138 - 15 - 40 = 83 = waste

    138 - 15 - 40 - 20 = 63 = good.

    Why spend the stats to wear fort?
    Is the 300ed that much better than the 19pdr?
    I've done well against smiters with nig, but it's very possible that I haven't run into a good one yet.

    Well right, a 63 base sounds good. I am guessing that 15 str is from Dracs, 40 from torch/anni, and 20 from arreats? Do you ever switch out to use say Trangs for fcr? If so you're probably using Enigma anyways and have no str problems.

    Against some smiters forti is better due to the fact that it gives alot of dmg to your grief. this dmg is actually bigger than that of smite. fortitude is very usefull against hammerdins too for the same reason huge dmg for grief nad widowmaker.
    As for the strenght, base of 63 assures you can equip arreat with only dracks on , or you dont depend on armor to wear helm and from there equip beast .

    20 is from a ring or a belt actually. You see, you will be using CoA (138 + 36 = 174).

    As for Trangs, why would I use Fortitude and Trangs? Makes no sense. As for Enigma and Trangs, I can do anything except use dual Dooms, CoA and Trangs. But that will also be fixed with a few more levels (needs 3 more str than what I have).

    As for using enigma and trangs, not useful versus hammerdins or smiters. Only in TvTs when you need to be able to teleport.
