    Which gloves for smiter?

    Hi, I'm planning on making a ladder pvp smite/charger and I was wondering which gloves I should use. This is the rest of the gear that Im hoping to get:

    Helm: "BerBer" Coa
    Ammy: Maras
    Armor: Archon or Wirefleece "Fortitude"
    Shield: Upped HoZ
    Weapon: "Grief" PB
    Belt: Verdungos
    Ring1: Raven Frost
    Ring2: BK
    Boots: Wartravs

    I'm planning on using this paladin for both public and private duels. I was thinking of using Dracul's for the ow, ll, and strength in public duels and switching to bloodfists for private duels. Is there a different glove that is better than either of these? And would the wartravs be optimal or are goreriders better? Thank you in advance for any help.

    Thanks for the advice tinn. However, I thought that the dmg from wartravs got multiplied by fort and other ed right? If so wouldnt the constant high dmg be better than the gores?

    This passage is from Pravda's Vindicator/Templar PvP guide (in guide sticky):

    I think it will cover your needs.

    Yea, I read over that guide but I thought it might have been different for a pure vindicator. Thanks for the info guess I'll stick with the bloodfists and the draculs.
    As for the boots can anyone confirm if the +dmg on wartravs gets multiplied like in grief?

    I'm pretty sure that it doesn't. The only +damage attribute that worked with Smite (before Grief r/w) was the ones appearing on the elite unique scepters. I'm refering to the Redeemer (unique Mighty Scepter) and the Astreon's Iron Ward (unique Caduceus).

    You're better off with some boots that either have Crushing Blow (i.e. Gore Rider or Goblin Toes) or other useful mods such as:

    Waterwalk (unique Sharkskin Boots)
    Defense: 112-124 (varies)(Base Defense: 33-39)
    Required Level: 32
    Required Strength: 47
    Durability: 14
    Assassin Kick Damage: 28-50
    +180-210% Enhanced Defense (varies)
    20% Faster Run/Walk
    +100 Defense Vs. Missile
    +15 To Dexterity
    +5% Maximum Fire Resist
    Heal Stamina Plus 50%
    +40 Max Stamina
    +45-65 To Life

    Pravda's V/T guide is dead-on in this area as well.

    It doesn't. War Travs offer a RANGE of damage bonus (15-25) which acts like +min and +max. These mods do not work with Smite.

    Straightforward, single-number +Damage WILL work with Smite, but is only found on three sources -- The Redeemer, Astreon's, and Grief.

    This is also the reason why charms with +max are wasted on Smiters.

    bloodfists are the best!! use them!!!
    draculs have lifetap which i dont like
    rares/crafted are good if you need extra ias, obviously you can get some rare/crafted gloves that are ubergodly and are better than bloodfists ---but usually bloodfists are the best option

    i use eth treks --- sexy!
    waterwalks are also useful for their insane life boost :thumbsup: also dex mod gg
