I have to say, I am quite confused with your post @.@

Anyway, I'm assuming you are now on Fatal rings with dark potential? Am I correct? That so, you might need 3rd stat crit heraldies and get matk crit potential on your weapon.

 

Having dark attack with measly crit will not be good. I tried that build myself, max dark with 5k crit yields some mediocre damage. I'd rather have you balance them both. 8-9k crit would be good enough( if you cannot reach 10k) coupled with a bit of dark attack.

I have a lot to ask too

I'm lvl 24 EL with Ice build and I want to ask you few things (or maybe suggestion):

1) Skill distribution suggestion? since I see a lot of fire spell is actually more usefull if we combine it with ice spell
2) What stat should I max? Int/Crit/Vit? Int/matk/vit? or sth else?
3) What skill heraldies should I take?
4) Combo suggestion in pvp? I usually use Glacial wave, firewall, ice stab, and inferno for finisher (sometimes freezing sword or frost wind)

1) If you're going for Ice, some good skills to get Under the fire tree is a lvl 7 inferno. Its optional to get Flame Road.

2) Focus on Int/Vit. With Hellfire, you dun't have to worry much as a EL. 

3) It depends on your play style. Icy Sword Damage would be good as a starter. 

4) That combo is good. Maybe you can experiment more? Like Glaciel Wave>Icy Spike>Chilling Mist>Frost Wind.

i suggest you get the right potentials on your items first. they contribute a lot to stats than suffixes does.

good potentials for ELs that already hit the CRIT CAP is INT VIT HP% and MATK AGI INT or INT FIRE ICE and INT AGI FIRE/ICE

he's/she's an ICE EL, so hellfire won't help him/her unless she goes hybrid ICE EL.

I know. Bur he wont go pure ICE right? If he does, then so be it. But i take it most EL would go hybrid. hellfire works work when burn status is inflicted. It is 0SP cost.

AFAIK, i think hellfire only works for burned targets attacked with fire spells..EG: it wont proc when you a hit a burned target with say, icy stab or blizzard storm..

only those will will become pandemoniums will benefit from it (pandemonium can actually go for pure fire only leaving glacial wave and glacial spike as the remaining ice skills, or mabye leave a few for object breaking)... if youre going for frost witch better max crit anyway since you need ice skills to do a max crit... dont bother with hellfire if you're going to max your crit... i think there's a bug with crit, if you go over the crit cap by a lot your crit chance goes down, I seem to notice it with my EL sometimes... although manti and apo follow more or less the 19k crit cap i think...

Is Ice Shield a must for PvP (ladder)? I got only Fire Shield, since I didn't skill past Frozen Spikes.

Does Final Damage have any use in PvP?

How much Crit Resist is needed/recommended? I'm at 11k currently, enough or not?

FD has no use in ladder, but in compe off, you are like a walking aura of death..Fire shield is good if you do know how to dodge coupled with the opness of the shield..still, ice shield si 10x better due to the freeze effect

That was a fast reply, thanks.

Do you also know the chance to freeze/burn of the shields? And do they only trigger when you get hit or also when you are basically 'in' an enemy?

i do not know the chance sorry..

from my own observations, u just basically need to be near an enemy in order to freeze them that is why it makes flame road so OP..imagine getting frozen while being barbecued.. bowpout

I'm not sure with the rate either, but Fire shield proc chance is a lot higher than Ice shield's proc chance. I could usually on Fire Shield, Frost Wind the target and Cast Ignite afterward.(without him burning from other skills cept Fire Shield)

For Freezing shield:

Lvl 1 : 10% Freezing chance.

Lvl 2 : 15% Freezing Chance.

Lvl 3.... Lvl 7 : 20% Freezing Chance.

Fire Shield should be the same i guess.

Well if hellfire only works with fire spells on burn target, then i apologise for the mis-info, because i'm under te impression that hellfire works on burnt targets, and any skills benefits from it. If that is the case, i would recommend Elemental% and Crit at level 50. If you have money, then Crit + FD + elemental %. So far fire ELs can reah this. For Ice i still recomend vit. Elestra is more defensive type. With imba shields ( ice shield and ice barrier ) along with frostbiting skills, pretty much a tanker that is dangerous to go close.

its not that accurate... since that was before the shield had the toggle on/off function... although I guess we have to stick with it for now... but i feel its lower now...

anyway frost witches get 2 more skills that can freeze... so hooray for ice spells XD
