    Re: Best Sorceress Build?

    We'll best is a very subjective term and depends where you want to run and what equipment you have available.

    Single element sorcs can be very powerful but of course struggle to kill monsters immune to their element.

    Blizzard sorcs are popular Meph runners while Fire sorcs destroy hell Andy. Lightning sorcs are good Baal runners but an Infinity is usually required for your merc to break lightning immunes.

    For all round dual element sorcs Blizzballers (Blizard/fireball hybrid) or Meteorb(Meteor/Orb hybrid) are both very effective.

    Head to the sorc forum, read the build guide stickies and you should find all you need to know about stats/skills and gear.

    best armors for magic finding are skullder's ire and the wealth runeword. If you're willing to sacrifice +skills and +res mods other amors have that is.

    No, the only way you can add socket (one) to skullder's ire is through the larzuk quest in act V.

    I have my skully socketed with ptopaz and get 136% better chance of getting magic item from the armor alone.

    no, you can't add sockets to an item which is allready socketed with this quest.

    Re: Best Sorceress Build?

    I actually prefer a Tals armour over Skullders for MF. Socketed with a perfect topaz you get 112 MF plus some other useful goodies.

    If there is a build for a guide chances are it will work. A lot of the gides are for cookie cutter (most common and powerful) builds and most that are for "different" builds say so.

    Any of the sorc types I listed will work but each will have strengths and weaknesses.

    If you want a good, all round MF character, that is relatively cheap, and can easily hold it's own in one person games I'd make a Blizzardballer or MeteOrb using Tals set.

    Tals' armour/ammy might be reasonably expensive on ladder at the moment but should be lass expensive than the really rare gear.

    I'd start with Tals Helm/Ammy/Armour/Weapon (try and get one with +2 fire and cold mastery)/Belt. A Rhyme shield, Magefists (or Trangs but prefer Magefists).

    Which gets you past the 63%FCR break point.

    What rings and boots you use are optional.
    Rings: Nagels = more MF, SOJ/BK + more skills and mana or life but expensive, Rares = mana, life, stat points, resists, don't need 10% FCR if using 20%FCR gloves.
    Boots: War Travellers = more MF, Silkweaves = more mana and MAK, Waterwalks = more life and dex, rares = nice resists, MF etc.
