Then I cast Shield, Shield of Faith, Shield Other (familiar), Magic Vestment, Magic Vestment, Endurance, Bull Strength, Spikes, Divine Favor, Shield again, Hold Person, Hold Person, Hold Person, Sanctuary, and Divine Power and attack. During that whole time, I will use my domain spells to keep me up from your arrows (which I presume will hit me sometimes but not for much damage).
Once I have my spells off and I have cast hold person 3 times on you from the sky, I will wait to see if you are held. Thats 3 saves you need to make or I win. If all three are made by you (which means you have a very good roll for will save). Then I cast sanctuary and move in. This will prevent you from cheeseballing any AOO or readied actions (because you will have to make another will save just to attack me until I attack you). Once I get within melee range, I will just attack you. And hit for hit, I do WAY more damage than you do with Spikes, Bullstrengthed, Divine Favored, and Divine Powered. My threat range is 19-20 to.. and when I crit, I do way more damage with you. Considering that one of your attacks per round is an offhand attack (your raging strength is only calculated once). Either way, once I see you raging, I will move out of combat, back into the sky. At that point, you shall be exhausted. I recast Divine Power and Shield and move in.
This is why I say you will have a very hard time beating me one on one. If you go first, chances are you will pummel me to a bloody pulp. But you still have to go first. And I am assuming I have Absolutely no spells up (which means EVERYthing is in your favor).
Oh and boyo.. remember I have a Tower Shield too.. 3.0 gives clerics Tower Shields so I can cast from behind my tower shield to prep in the sky while you are just doing nada.
We are both equal in level and equal in power, therefore I think that it will come down to who goes first.
That is rarely the spell compliment that you take. I have never seen you cast hold person, spikes, endurance, or magic vestment, but even if you have those spells I think I still win most of the time.
Granted, if I miss a will save on Hold person I am toast, But that is true FOR JUST ABOUT ANYONE in 3.0.
And I hope you're ready to take an attack each time you cast a spell, because that is what I will be doing, readying actions to nail your ass so you lose your spells. And I hope you don't think your measly 8 strength guy can get full cover from the tower shield he can barely hold up AND cast spells without at the very least making concentration checks. And how will domain spells keep you up? You can't convert those to cures.
And sanctuary won't stop my AOO or readied action, I just have to make a low save to attack you.
And you're casting Divine Power twice and Air Walk? How many 4th level spells do you get champ?
Even if all you say is accepted at true, which I do not btw, all I need is ONE little potion of Fly to wreck your day. How easy it is to foil you!
And what is this garbage that you will do WAY more damage than me? Dude I do 3d8 + 18 a round with my gladii, without any crits, if I hit all 3 times. If I use my Tralian hammer I do 4d8+ 20 a round, if I hit both times. I am not dependant on spells going off, or concentration checks either. I don't win only outdoors and I don't have to carry around spell components, and grapple doesn't own me. That ALWAYS applies to me in general.
Btw, I don't think Bull strength stacks with Divine power (they may both be enhancement bonuses, but I may be wrong in 3.0).
I don't think I will have a "VERY HARD TIME" beating you as you put it.
And even if you get off that crazy scenario you have devised that benefits ONLY you, I still think I can take you one on one, that is the funny thing.
Even if I realize you're beating me, I wll just use your trick and run around long enough for your spells to wear off, in which case you are toast. But you already knew that didn't you.
BTW, Ramon, I am truly enjoying this exchange, I hope you're not taking it too personally, because I have been known to irritate people here with my smack, but I think you know me well enouh to know better.
