WHOA!!! fireclaws good for duelin' with!

Well i guess this is sort of a no-brainer, but today i realized how effective a fireclaw bear can be in melee pvp.

Fought a BOTD conc barb today (dont think it was an eth one but still). I dont think he got a hit in! he runs up kills my oak. I just start wailing on him and a few hits later he was face down in the dirt.

also fought a damn fine rabies/fireclaw hybrid.

when he went rabies id kill him but have to run back to town right after cause id have like 1 life!

when he went fireclaws OOOHHH BABY!! suffice to say i got my furry rear handed to me. But i chalk this up to him having a 4 frame phase blade (i just need a couple ias/AR jewels to complete mine).

i am loving this!

its been talked about ever since 1.10 came out, fireclaws is amazing. coldarmy has a guide on one, and i am glad to see others have followed my guide (the rabies/fireclaws hybrid, i assume he read the guide ><)


edit: however i dont know if things have changed, but pub pvp, especially melee pvp, no one ever has resists, maybe a little, but barely any, if it only took a few hits to take him down, a barb for that matter, then i think he lacked some resists there. i am not saying a FC bear cant fight with ppl who resists fire, but i am just saying, it shouldnt be THAT easy.

Man....I made a WB based on Coldarmy's Fireclaws Guide and IT ROCKS. I cant speak enough about the 6 x shaeled phase blade. Its super fast and with FC, Firestorm, Fissure and Volcano maxed it really sings!! A couple swipes and most people are dead!!

My bear has the elite gear listed in Coldarmy's guide except the SS of Vita charms. I have a ber SS even :drool: , So I can use Jalal's without needing that extra DR.

Also add in Chains of Honor, whew.

My phase has less AR than I would like (only 89~ish in total).

I adapted the build as well. I think I use IK Mitts + Boots for the AR, which with 13K in duels is much needed.

Pwning with Fireclaws... me has to go do now :lol:

I wanted to make a fireclaw bear since .09 but when I asked for advice, SOMEONE gave me **** about it and I never got around to it, it just seemed like a fun way to use werebear without the expensive phase blade

I beat him with a lidless and my bo weapon O_______________O
Thats the day he was finished with his druid and he was really pisssed that it didnt pawn as he wanted to but i think he fixed that problem so we have to duel again.

Hi kazzzzzy ^_^ Been a while old bud.


Edit

We did this in hell too, we moved to hell because i thought i had better advantage in normal. I have about 23 resist all.


Edit2

Kill well have to go dueling together, we too much mf freaks, after a few duels back to mf we go ^_^

Well, my WB FC is lvel 87 atm, I deal pretty much 10k damage (only got 3 ss charms yet). I find main problem in melee duels is ar. 13k Ar is good to fight zons or casters, but i find it far low to fight melee chars. Even good zealots have hi def now, not to mention barbs. Good ww barbs using eth botd (4k damage) have 25k+ def, hard to hit. I can reach the 25k ar mark using 2* angelic rings&ammy+aldurs boots&armor, even like this i cant hit all time. Another problem is the damm slow fbr, every time i block i get standing able to receive a couple more of hits (seriously thinking in going with 2 hand weapon-GT6*shael-&upgraded shaft+high fhr instead). And I barely have 2.7k life, not that high. I know is not finished, but dont find it so amazing...yet (having in mind all that dammed enigma casters...).
