Finally!!

I finaly got the Occy for my Sorc, up untill now i was using Cathans, (at lvl 67 lol) best part, gott it free from my freind... i like free stuff! :thumbsup:
 
Well done! i personally dont use my occy very much. the CTC teleport can be a lifesaver if your aswamped, but a killer if you TP into a massive pack of hard hitting monsters. I wouldnt use it in HC myself.

Congrats on your occu, now socket it with IST and go do some MF runs :p
I find the teleporting thingy annoying too but oculus is the best MF weapon for sorc imo.

I've used an occy for..... a very long time now. I'm wanting to build a mfer/rusher (and she's coming along great), so I thought an occy would be the best. 50% mf, put in a 15% res all jewel and u have 35% all res.

Not bad!

Now, I'm an extremely fast rusher... and I hardly ever, if ever, die. But the last rush I did, I died like 5 times... ALL TO THE TELEPORT.

Thus, I now greatly hate the occy. I'd hardly ever die if not for it... so I suggest only using it till you get better, like a hoto. Though I do believe there's another good wand weapon for sorcs? I forget the name of it. I'd look into that or the hoto, the teleport really does kill.

Eh... it will be hard for him to obtain an Ist since apparently he just started.

* Death's Fathom for a cold sorc.
* Eschuta's temper for a fire or lightning sorc.
* Wizardspike if you can do without +skills.

Not harder than to anyone else who just started.
In case you missed the smilie in the end of the post, the ist -part was supposed be slightly humorous.

i think my first occy easy too. i think i got it for a Lum rune. I thought lum rune was the highest rune ever and that only item in the game that was worth it was occy. Good old day... :uhhuh:

And once you've ISTed it, do like me, upgrade it just for the fun of it :lol: :bonk: !

Yeah, dimensional shard, that's a pretty cool name, huh ;)

I know this good advice for a "new" player, But If you're not a blizzard sorc, I'd go for a hoto. (heart of the oak flail).

I just made a perfect one last night, so it has 40% fcr and 40% all res, and 3 all skills.

So you get the skills, fcr, massive res (if you get a good one, of course), and no auto teleport.

If you are dead set on using an Occy (which isn't hard to get), I'd consider putting a all res jewel in it. The one I was using had a 15% all res jewel (worth an um), so it had 35% all res.

Then again, I'd seriously consider the other sorc orbs (someone else posted them on this thread) if you run into it instead of an occy, I've died too many times to teleport.

Oh, for a shield get yourself a spirit shield: they are cheap to make, u just gotta find a good shield to use (Get 156 str and find a monarch shield). Runes are very easy, and it's easily one of the best sorc shields.
