    Eshuta's VS Oculus

    I have recently traded for an Eschuta's orb because of the random 25% chance to tele on the occy. Other bonuses include 10% etra FCR and more energy. Sure you don't get the +20 vit and +20 res but it sure beats random tele'ing into a mob of monsters and then dying. Am I right?

    If you're going pure dmg then eschutas is better, but occy's bonuses to vit, res, and the +3 skills make it so much better in my opinion. You're a sorc, you shouldn't be getting hit by anything. If you are it is either because you play way to aggressive and don't have block, or it's because of lag. I for one have had probbly 1 bad tele with my occy and that was into a fanta pack of extra fast dolls on my way to meph in 1.09. . .instant death. Other than that I have learned when to back off and let my merc attract the monsters. The 10fcr can also be made up for on your ammy, gloves, belt, shield, or rings. A 10fcr ring with some res and stats can be godly. the 10fcr is only going to help you if it gets you to a breakpoint. Remember speed may kill, but only if you can live to kill. Res, life, and block can save your life on more than one occasion, especially in the tombs of A2 and Worldstone.

    The Oculus has saved my life many more times than it has endangered it..

    True, that.

    The added fcr is nice, but the dmg is negligible since the masteries already add so much dmg. Well, not worth 20 resist and 50 mf anyways.

    Can only agree to that if the +xx% dam on Eschutas would rather be -xx% res then i would reconsider *ggg*.
    Occy still rules!
