Ok, I'm making a sorc roughly as described (exception, I'm using 75 energy because it's my first char, and I'm maxing teleport before ice bolt for personal reasons). I'm planning to use it for rushing lvl 1 chars to Act 3 Hell, NOT Meph-running.
Some questions on gear:
3-Sock PRuby Helm OR 3-Sock PSkull Helm - does it matter what it's in? Or just anything with 3 sock?
Spectral Shard - how much is this? (i.e., how many PGems, or how much gold?)
Shield: 3-Sock PDiamond Large Shield OR 30/20 Priz Bone Shield. I got a 15/10 Priz (20 all) Bone shield, but gave up on a 30/20. Does it matter? (And how important is full res for hell, if I'm only doing acts 1 and 2?)
Twitchthroe - same question as shard, how much?
Gloves: Magefist OR Frostburn - does it matter which? Magefist is FCR, how important is it to hit 70%? How much are these? (I've seen someone selling frost for 500k earlier today)
Belt: Nightsmoke OR Bladebuckle - again, how much?
Amulet: +1 or +2 Sorc Priz Amulet OR The Mahim-Oak Curio - I found the Eye of Etlich. Will this suffice, or do I need the extra skills/res/att from the above ammys?
as you level this new sorc, you will find out what type of gear suits your style of play. I would go with a zero skill priz/stacked priz ammy over the eye of elitch if in hell.
if you are fast enough on the teleporting, and skilled enough to avoid getting whacked, you can in fact just down thawing and antidote pots for the temporary boost in CR/PR, but a lack of LR, and periodically FR in hell will kill you very very fast.
as for gloves - I love the fcr of magefists over the mana of frosties. magefists/shard hit that breakpt perfectly, and can allow you to use cheaper, easier to find higher rez/twinker rings that may not have fcr.
re: tri sock helms. do some cows, and pick up several. you may find that the rep of skulls helps your style of play, or the extra life of prubies does, or the extra mf along the way during rushing of 3 p topazs is neat for a gull off of nm andy from time to time, or p saphies for extra mana instead of the frosties, or finally, if you find heavier gear that suits your style of play, the pamy's for a ton of extra str...
since you're rushing with this char, instead of mfing, the extra space inside your cube/stash/pack taken up by the extra masks/crowns wont matter
