i realized very quickly that guys like fotum look nice but i have yet to see someone with that kind of HP who also gets a shitload of strength. everytime i've tried to fight someone with immortal and vitality the outcome is strength > HP but i've only fought people like that on similar levels. obviously my level 11 vs fotums level 44 looks like THIS but when you put them on the same level it looks more like THIS and it only gets worse for the HP people the higher the levels go. :)
the best people i've fought are ones who have all of the first 3 items with high strength, agility, and speed, some items are just flashy or can get ignored by the brute but those 3 things will always help you in a fight.
