    Hi I wanted to ask you guys what you think is the best template for a PVM warrior Gargoyle.
    I usually play a Sampire but I'd like to explore also gargoyles race, thing i never did.
    I'd like also to know which is the best equipment for him(including new sa items, i dont care if the equipment might be uber expensive).
    Thanks in advance!

    I don't have my garg finished yet, but I am building a garg sampire. I am using Connor's template with parry. My suit plan uses the following arties:

    - Mace & Shield Glasses
    - Breastplate of the Berzerker
    - Void Infused Kilt
    - Tangle
    - Quiver of Infinity
    - Conjurer Garb
    - Conjurer Trinket

    The 45 DCI comes from the Tangle, Conj Garb, Quiver and 15 on each ring and brace. I can max my HCI as well between the garg racial bonus, kilt, trinket, ring, and brace. Because a garg doesn't get the benefit of a swamp dragon I want to use the 10% damage eater from the kilt. The remaining pieces will be imbued barbed leather. I plan to use dual short axes for dual strike. I only need 25 SSI as the breastplate has 10. LS really isn't necessary with HCI already at max.

    What do you think? I have the breastplate, tangle, trinket, quiver, and garb. Just need to acquire the kilt, M&S glasses, and another garb. It isn't anything revolutionary, but it is different than the standard elf sampire.

    LS is about more than just HCI though, it's also useful for those damage bonus' that come with Crit hits.

    Let's put it this way, with a regular hit to Medusa I do from 60-90 damage. Crits roll in from 156-180 consistently when I'm spamming LS.

    The only way I can see LS not being important is if you are using a Sampire for PvP where damage has lower caps.

    You know I always tell folks to build their suits around the RBC for Human/Elf characters. I'm seriously thinking of adopting the Beserker's Breastplate for Gargoyles. See most Garg weapons are slow...the SSI on the piece really helps. I'd start with that and then look to build from there.
     
  5. LS is much more than just HCI. It's also the 20% crit chance and the massive amount of damage one does.

    To put this in perspective, with 20% Critical chance.

    Against something with:
    75 resist - 2x damage
    50 resist - 1.5x damage
    25 resist - 1.25x damage

    Assuming you use lightning strike every hit.

    Maybe it'll be more clear with more numbers.
    Assuming you do 100 damage per hit against 0 resist. This will be the damage spread over 5 hits.
    75 resist : 25 + 25 + 25 + 25 + 100 = 200 damage
    50 resist : 50 + 50 + 50 + 50 + 100 = 300 damage
    25 resist : 75 + 75 + 75 + 75 + 100 = 400 damage

    For the last couple of weeks my favorite char to play is my Gargoyle Thrower/Mystic. He does Great in Pvm, can do all the abyss mini spawns, and solo Navrey and the Stygian Dragon, also does really well at Champ spawns, not like a Sampire, but good in a small group.

    His Template is:

    Anat - 88 (100 with ring)
    Chiv - 77
    Focus - 120
    Magery - 100
    Mystic - 115 (looking for 120 scroll)
    Tactics - 100
    Throwing - 120

    Armor is all 70's(with protection) all 74 (in stone form), 100 LRC, 40 LMC, 15 MR, 31 Stam Inc. 40 HCI (jewels & trinket) 70 DI (jewels & trinket), 2fc 3fcr & 10 SSI (ring & wing armor)

    Pieces are: Mace & Shiled Glasses (converted), Lt. guard Sash (converted), Crimmy (converted), Pendant of the Magi, Conjurers Garb & Trinket, Warden's Armor of Augmentation, Imbued Chest, Arms, Kilt, Legs

    I can cast invis on myself and Gheals and Arch cures. Better yet is Cleansing winds, for healing and curing, not to mention the healing stones.

    General fight tactics are Mass Sleeps and Rising Colossus, followed by AI's from the soul glave that is SC -1, Mana Leech, 30 SSI, Slayer and DI. Invis then needed. There are a lot of other spells and tactics, it's fun playing around with it. Oh and the AI's for most stuff, do between 160 and 255 per shot

    In 2010 Soul Glave had 20-24 base damage.
