which dk best with shield or with spear... ?


Recommended Posts

It depends on who you want to kill and your skill setup.

 

I have both setups and both dooms for it.

 

Spear actually is perhaps the best melee class for killing casters: shamans, druids, rangers etc.  You'll even kill warlocks in that 0.5 seconds you have inbetween fear and circle.

Spear struggles with strong melee classes though like a high amp bd. 

 

One handed is fantastic for melee classes.  You'll also make some druids and shamans run out of mana on you.  Against pro casters though you lack the burst damage to kill many of them.

 

Spear is for Burst Damage one hand is for sustained dps.

Well I am currently exhale thorns and dark shield 5. 

 

You must have dark shield it works great for both setups.  Obviously high thorns.  Exhale doesn't add too much for shield users though unless you sacrifice defensive stats for dark damage. 

 

I might try 5 thorns 5 shield 3 threads and 3 exhale.  That would be a very balanced setup no matter what you're using for gear (dark or defense).
