Hm..enchantress questions / ponderings So there I am, looking through my accounts, and I find this melee sorc I started ages ago, but ran out of funds to complete. So I figured I'd start building her again, but I've run into several problems / questions. As follows: (1) She's going to be a werebear chantress. But until I can afford a "Beast" I was thinking about IK maul (2x hel'd)/ belt / gloves combo. There was talk In the sorc forum about how putting pts into cold/light/fire mastery would affect the damage on Vengeance: would it work the same with the elemental damage added on by the IK maul's partial set bonuses? Or is the only reason the mastery affects Vengeance is that Vengeance is a skill, even if its imparted by a weapon? (2) When I finally get a Beast. What to socket it in... I've seen several people on East using Beast ettin axes - 2 hands. - The physical damage isnt that important right? Most of your beatdown comes from Enchant. - If that's the case, wouldn't it be better to use a Beast zerker with a shield... say SS? (3) On my bliz sorc, when she casts oak sage via hoto, the sage disappears on weap switch. Would this have the same effect? If I used Beast to turn to Werebear, then switch'd out, would I just find myself reverting to sorcy form? Any thoughts?
