    I assume you're talking in a windy's point of view.

    Better BvC's will beat you, but if you can pull off max block you've got a decent chance. Add fhr/Doom and it just gives you more advantages.

    Hybrid sins are by far the best windy killers imo. There might be some other super effective builds though.

    Against walkers, you can keep teleing on em till they rest to 1) tele away, 2) attack, 3) fhr of hurricane, or 4) their run interupted due to wolves or hurricane. Then start nading there. Or just expect where they walk to and tele ahead of em.

    I hope you aren't suggesting using Doom vs. BvC...that’s plain suicide.

    I have killed a couple windies with my smiter by charging them into shreds....It is hard to do though because it is hard to target the druid amongst all his summons while dodging those freakin tornadoes...

    Lightning trapper will do better, simply because of it's piercing effect.

    From what I know 'holy freeze' will slow down whirlwind, therefore causing more hit checks. Am I wrong?

    To be exact, it keeps you in range for a longer time, thus allowing easier time for your opponent to hit you (and of course more hits too), whereas you stay in range for longer.

    Also, Doom makes triwhirling useless.

    Cheers Ce Olba, to me this means using 'Doom' against a barb is a bad idea, keeping a barb in range longer, causing more hits is never a good thing. Maybe Morotsjos can explain further, if that isn't beyond him.

    Actually, it's a good thing in a few ways:
    A) It eliminates the BvCs most powerful force: triwhirls (as your whirl so slow that it won't be effective anymore)
    B) It makes it so that the if the BvC player offensive, he will most likely lose (due to the fact that the Windy can dodge the barbs whirls and then spam tornados at him)

    yes. it's nearly impossible to make good wws when slowed, and slow often causes lag and 1-2-seconds of whirl-in-place at end of each ww. this is why necs who use decrepify+golem slow are impossible to beat.

    Im not quiet sure about that, some trappers told me you need to mb the druid out of the stack as light traps dont 'pierce' stack.

    They do. Might not seem like it since cyclone armor "tankes" a volley or two. But I personally have FAR more trouble dueling a good fb sorc than I do trapsins :|
