A little critique/help on a new sorc. This is probably going to be one of my last builds for this season and I want to make her as close to perfect as possible, so any comments/advice will be very much appreciated. This is a basic BlizzBaller, being built for the purpose of being able to clear all of Hell (with ease!) namely the level 83-85 areas. Typically, I don't play with such good gear which is why I'm requesting advice (to optimize), but Meph and Andy have been kind and I figured I'd give a character such as this a go. Below is listed the gear (along with pertinent stats) that I have/am in the process of aquiring Merc Equipment: Infinity Polearm (Ber + Mal + Ber + Ist) Level 12 Conviction Aura When Equipped +35% Faster Run/Walk +255-325% Enhanced Damage (varies) -(45-55)% To Enemy Lightning Resistance (varies) 40% Chance of Crushing Blow Prevent Monster Heal Harlequin Crest +2 All Skills DR 10% + (1.5 Per Character Level) 1-148 To Life (Based On Character Level) Shaftstop Damage Reduced By 30% +250 Defense Vs. Missile +60 To Life Sorc 2 x SOJ +1 to All Skills Increase Maximum Mana 25% +20 Mana Mara's Kaleidoscope +2 to All Skill Levels +20-30 Resis All +5 Stats Heart of the Oak +3 to All Skills 40% FCR 15% Max Mana 30-40 Resis Harlequin Crest +2 All Skills DR 10% + (1.5 Per Character Level) (Life/Mana) Skin of the Vipermagi +1 to All Skills 30% FCR 20-35% Resis Stormshield 60% Cold Resis 25% Light Resis +30 STR & DR 30% 67% Block Magefists +1 Fire Skill 20% FCR War Travs Arachnid Mesh +1 All Skills 20% FCR Anni (Not sure about what stats I can get.) Sorc Torch (Not sure about what stats I can get/if I can afford one just yet.) Here is the summation of what I recieve from all of the gear sans sockets. 110% FCR Total +14 All Skills +1 Fire Skills 100-135 Resis All 160-195 Cold Resis 125-160 Light Resis Skills: 20 Blizzard 20 Glacial Spike (Last to be Maxed) 20 Ice Blast 1 Ice Bolt 1 Frost Nova 1 Cold Mastery 1 Static 1 TK 1 Teleport 20 Fire Bolt 20 Fire Ball 1 Warmth 1 Fire Mastery Now, first off everyone will probably comment on the lack of e-shield and tk. I made the decision that I won't need it, my current sorc has less life and no %DR and rarely gets hit. Secondly, there is only 1 point in Cold Mastery because of the massive +skills and the Conviciton that will be running at all times which will be -95% Resistances and the Mastery will be -90%. I consider this to be an apt amount for any monsters that I will encounter. I'm heavily considering not using 2 SOJs for the fact that they are ungodly expensive and I lack absorb, so using a dwarf/wisp and a Raven would save me on absorb and some dex. I also have a BO slave running at about level 36, so an additional +1 skills for Battle Cry. (Which brings Conviction to -100% and Mastery to -95%) *Submitting post now, possible additions/corrections later. *Ah yes, stats. Knew I forgot something. Str - Absolute minimum, will be str bugging anything possible on (namely Stormshield) Dex - Of course she's going to have 75% block Vit - EVERYTHING POSSIBLE! Energy - I can't think of a single character (I'd play) I would put any points into here.
