    Are you blizz sorc runners maxing out Cold Mastery or are you just getting it to a soft 17? In the past i had always heard soft 17 is best as more is usually wasted, but i wasn't sure considering the resists/immunity on a couple of the council bosses in conjunction with Infinity.

    Turns out i still had my hell respec on my sorc, so i'm going to try out some blizzy. I've actually never played a blizz sorc so this is new for me :D

    @TheGuardianXXXIII I would definitely put more than soft 17 into it. As a pure Blizzard sorc, you have the points to max it and it helps against Toorc, who is always cold immune, but can be broken by Infinity's Conviction aura most of the time. Taking all the 1-point skills like Warmth, Teleport, Telekinesis, Static Field and Frozen Armor into account, you can max Blizzard, all its synergies and Cold Mastery by level 95. However, considering against the council a maxed out Cold Mastery is only useful against Toorc, I would max all the synergies first, then put the remaining points into the Mastery.

    I had an Um, Ist, Lo, and Jah drop in about 1.5 hours of practice running last night. Almost stopped when I saw the Lo. Jah came on next run.

    Obviously no more practicing, but pretty much doomed for the tourney now. Grrrr.

    @TheGuardianXXXIII To add to what LongingForDeath said: Any council member that is not a broken cold immunity or unbreakable immune will be at -100 Cold Resist if you just reach -115 CM, i.e. level 20 (with the -85 from Infinity). And Toorc with that level in CM will also be at -24 Cold Resist. So I guess if you're tight on skill points you should at least have lvl 20 CM so everyone except Toorc is getting double your screen damage.

    That being said, more never hurts...

    @LongingForDeath Do you only put one point in static? What is your range? I have 10 hard points in it and I'm pretty sure I should respec to at most 5 hard points and put the rest into CM. (Haven't respecced her since the Switch from Nova to Blizzard in normal)

    Currently I have Trang’s belt on the Barb, I have no Cham hats other than 1.07 Valk. Switch is 2x HoTO, so I hit 65 FCR.

    Considering switching to 2x Suicide Branch & a FCR ring - Thoughts?

    Edit:
    Looks like I have +9 FI currently = 55%
    Suicide Branch would be + 5 FI = 53%

    Wondering if the increase in cast speed is worth it.

    Two jah and Lo in an hour and a half? That would have been a recipe for winning imo!

    Last time I found something big before the tourney (it was Cham), I found 5 more Chams on the tourney. So... bunch of Jahs and Los incoming!

    Nope just one Jah, but four qualifiers in 1.5 hours in Trav, an area that has not been generous to me in the past, is probably not a good sign. Here's hoping for Grip luck...

    On my barb before i had cham shako, I was also running Trang's and i used HoTO + Suicide on switch for more +skills while still being able to stay at 105 FCR. With that you just need a 2/5FCR ammy if you're also running an FCR ring, or a 2/15 ammy and no FCR ring.

    FCR Amulet would mean I have to drop Highlord’s.

    Sorry if I missed something but why worry about CNBF? It’s more beneficial not to have it for WW anyway. Hence the Arach + Hoto/Suicide Branch switch for 105 is pretty standard for Trav Barb, with HLW.

    You walk between horks. If you get chilled it is slower.

    I used to run without CBF, but thought it made me quicker. Maybe I just try both as I run.

    Indeed, I only have 1 point in static at the moment. Range is 12 yards after BC. But I wanted to respec anyway to max out Blizzard synergies and put the remaining points into Cold Mastery, which is currently still maxed and at -200% after BC. I might as well put some more points into static field then. But I'll have to see about that, since the sorc is currently only level 89, so I'm a few skill points short.

    I will be running with my fury druid. I was hoping to find a 4 socket ethereal thresher during cows for Infinity, should the runes drop in Travincal. Might have to just go eugh and make it in a CV, which isn't what I want, but I also want an Infinity for Habacalva ASAP :p

    Yeah, mine's a bit wider but I feel like it's overkill already... Leveling shouldn't be a problem for you though. I'm at 92 right now and she's still making good progress on the experience bar.

    ---

    Only 3 hours until round 2 starts here in Europe (CET)!

    Has anyone ever gone for the full 25 sets? :p
