    Frostburn vs Magefist

    Heya. I'm a meterorb sorc and I'm debating which to use. Frostburn or Magefist. Ive found both already to obtaining both isn't a problem. Most likely they will be used for when I want to lvl instead of doing mf as I'm only on lvl 55ish.

    It depends what you're in need of, mana or a faster cast rate? Tell us what your current mana situation is and what your cast rate is with your current items.

    I have 218mp and 10%fcr and 15% regenerate mana not including 1 on warmth. Honestly my sorc is diabolic as I have hardly any good equipments my other sorc failed miserably. This one is my mf once shes high enough to take on hell.

    I'd go with Frostburn then or at least until you have enough FCR items to reach higher breakpoints. I don't think you'll notice the extra frame you'll get from Magefist, but it may be noticeable when you hit 40 total FCR.

    If you can't hit 63% fcr with Magefists then use the Frostburns.

    Keep in mind that in the end, you WILL end up using Magefists. Reasons:

    1. I assume you're using full tal's, which gives 50 FCR. You need 55 more FCR to get to the 105 breakpoint (less than 105 simply sucks IMO), which is in the form of magefists and 35 FCR spirit shield. Magefists also gives +1 fire skills which is quite handy, and if you have an soj (or two) you won't have any mana problems, even without insight.
