paper helm dd is a must or u wont go far against shards+9 or things like that.
i would suggest rofs in spite of fr and deffo lycaon staff+8 at least... but +9 seems a must in order to cover the diff in dmg between rof and fr without talking the about hp and fr.
Valky with ac bonus and def. gloves. seems a common choice.
EP at least +2.
If u can't buy a cs, pretty interesting would be trying a 90 str setup for wearing a ds any+
If u do that go use ep and valky with hp bonus in order to cover your loss in hp stats.
And a lycaon staff (even if +7)here is more welcome than a wood+10 since it adds an extra hp bonus.
Now the main probs will come from those using smthing like hb+8 or higher
cs or ds should deffo help u in stayin alive a bit more against those.
Keep in mind that an iron set + 20club def coat do almost nothing against a weap with such elemental dmg
So if u see a shining warrior with an hb coming to u..i would tp a priest or even better a rogue near me ...if he's not retarded...he should have learnt how to minor u on fly and attacking the warrior (using red skills mainly -saving the spike-trust for the right moment) while u slide him or while u do anythingelse
Tping an archer would be a pretty good trick too since he can still minor u and plus he can styx the warrior, giving u the time to beat his potting.
other than that good luck in getting that gear XD
