Dickwads pvp advice for beginners


#1

Allow one eternal item per build . Never an eternal weapon. Pay close attention to natures and talents


#2

I disagree with no eternal weapons. Ever tried Fate’s Travesty as an eternal? It’s pretty good, esp. if we are aiming this advice towards beginners in the arena.


#3

He means as a rule of thumb, if you really really know what your doing then its not too bad, but more often than not, its best to avoid eternal weapons… i mean the eternal obsidian daggers went round quite a bit


#4

I’ve been experimenting with both characters having angelic pets to mutually heal each other


#5

Two high regen characters with normal legend angelic pets. It’s good


#6

Then chuck in sanctuary on your weaker but most destructive character with blood magic , permafrost bonus, druidic bonus and equality. You have a two man army. Often the hireling out lives you and finishes the match. All hireling summons are transferred to the remaining summoner in 2 summoners pvp build.


#7

@Golem summoners are the way :slight_smile: The question is do you use say apocalypse or just stick a couple of summon furies procs on gear


#8

Apocalypse. And summoners is easy to counter with reactor set


#9

to be honest, I consider Summon Builds difficult, so I don’t use them. but I like the concept of them…having Minions going out and causing havoc amongst your enemies while hanging back and giving support. basically, I would be making a dual Build, Minion and Minion Support (support is separate from Affixes, Talents, and Skills that affect Minions directly, like using a Staff with 20-40 points in Comet to help Minions with ranged support while staying out of range of the fight.) but the Dual Spiritmancer with 2 Angelic Pets set up is a good idea. how about one Spiritmancer with Apocalypse and the other with the Furies.


#10

While legend procs are rubbish in pvp unless stacked or on an eternal item, summon furies do seem more reliable . So maybe


#11

the only reason I thought of the summons on separate Spiritmancers was space considerations, which is at a premium on PVP builds.

@Ircher you can add powerful attacks on mythic upon weapon. So save them for mythic affixes.
So choose one eternal item to suit your build. Check out rings , necklaces and armour. Jasper them from other classes and see what happens
