    Arrow Don't Go Air Savant

    Air Savant sucks in PvP. I used to just Icy Prison everybody, but no, I wanted to fly.

    Well, this 20ranger came down and did his full Manyshot and did nothing but 0s because I have godlike DR.

    While this was happening, his guildy fvs dude was pounding me with spells, which my ioun stone absorbed.

    He managed to drain my stone by the time the ranger's manyshot was out and I killed it, so then killed the fvs.

    The 2nd time, I had no charges. (they make me go in first they won't go in otherwise)

    So I sat there and had to kill the ranger because the fvs was using DP and stuff on me.

    While trying to kill the same ranger that did 0s to me blocking, BAM! I died. Let me tell you what happened.

    Slayer Arrows (500) + Smiting's Bane (100) + -4 CON from Wounding (40) + Base Damage of 4 arrows + affects.

    That's over 640 damage just because he had a Wounding Longbow of Smiting. Lesson: Go Ice Savant.

    What would have happened if I were Ice Savant is this: Icy Prison, ranger dies, destroy fvs, then wait for more.

    I'm going to go to sleep now, good night everybody, it's past 2am here. I'll probably ruin my eyes further if I keep staying up this late every single night...

    That's not what would happen. The FvS would kill you with Divine Punishment. There is no counter to that spell and it kills everyone who walks near a FvS in PvP. I know that's true because I read it on the forums.

    It's water savant, not ice savant.

    TWO: It has nothing to do with what savant you are, at the end of the day.

    THREE: Clerics and FvS are pretty uber with Divine Punishment. THeir "stuff" is good too.

    FOUR: Rangers with slayer have always been a danger.

    FIVE: God-like DR? Is that possible? Could someone answer that?

    SIX: You tell some interesting stories. THey are quite amusing.

    It sounds like he was shield blocking and Docent of Defiance proc'd. That should get you somewhere in the range of 40-50 DR.

    Also, air savant is awesome.

    This means two things.
    1. Ranger out maneuvered him to where the forward facing blocking didn't block shots from the side/behind.

    But really I think it is this.
    2.
    If you are casting/attacking you aren't blocking. You sucked manyshot and got killed by a ranged person again. You aren't following the one exception to this rule I can think of at the moment.

    1. There's always someone who has nothing better to do than pick out the little mistakes

    2. It actually has everything to do with which savant you, different savants = different pvp/play style

    3. Their 'stuff' is good but can be beat very easily especially since DP can indeed be removed.

    4. Atleast we agree on something

    5. It means he has high enough DR so MOST melee attacks hit him for little to no damage

    6. Their quite informative too!

    Finally, get a hobby. It's obvious you don't like pvp, what bemuses me is that you still want to post in as many threads in this section as you can. Don't let your almost 10k post count go to your head.

    @OP I don't think air savant would be a viable option for you anyways, apart from the wings your DC's would be pretty bad and most air spells have a save. Icy prison is kinda cheap but I would use it if i was getting double teamed

    Here's a fun fact: PvP matters 0 zero niente nada nothing in gameplay, it's just for plain fun and it doesn't give you anything, and building your character, even changing a single feat, to focus on PvP is simply a bad choice.

    May be DR above, but generally in pvp he stands in one place shield blocks; all others are welcome to beat him up and slowly one by one all around him dies.

    PvP might not give you anything, but a few people do seem enjoy it for some reason. Building a character to maximize the fun you have in the game is not a bad choice.

    There's a problem here though: PvP is terribly imbalanced and under-developped, so it's not viable or trusted in anyway, simply because a Lv. 3 Sorcerer can go ahead and kill a Lv. 10 character in 3 Shots. (Just an example) If that seems fair to you, go ahead and PvP as you like, as for me, I don't think that's the least fun for anyone. I do think DDO has PvP potential since the best kind of PvP is based off skill, reflexes and build differences (DDO), but the way it is now, it's not to be taken seriously in ANY way. And if it was to be developped, it should come with prevention against Drama and QQ - Say a separate chat or Instance.

    Grow up. She has just as much right to post as Dispell does. You don't like it don't read it or put her on ignore.

    If you don't want comments, don't post it. It IS that simple.
