Hmm, this is actually quite valuable?

    Hmm, this is actually quite valuable?

    I found this magical item (only blue) in nightmare act 2 with my hardcore sorceress. She was just doing the normal quests.

    I kinda think its quite a good item. What do u think?

    Arch-Angel's Clasped Orb
    One-hand Damage: 5 - 12
    +2 To Sorceress Skill Levels
    +1 To Frozen Orb (my main skill)
    +29 To Life

    The following mods i added with a jewel:
    +6 To Energy
    +12 All Resistances

    Here's what I think:

    1) That blue color makes my eyeballs bleed. :teeth:

    2) It's okay, but not great. On a scale from 1-10 I'd give it a 6.

    For a blue item its really good, but a rare or unique most often overshine a magical one.

    Unfortunately, The Oculus overshadows that wand.

    +3 To Sorceress Skill Levels
    +5 To Mana After Each Kill
    All Resistances +20
    25% Chance To Cast Level 1 Teleport When Struck
    30% Faster Cast Rate
    +20 To Vitality
    +20 To Energy
    +20% Enhanced Defense
    50% Better Chance Of Getting Magic Items

    and its clvl req 42, which I believe would be the same req for yours.

    Mmmm, if going untwinked, finding a thing like that could prove very fortuitous. It can take a while for an oculus to show up.

    Besides, many people- me among them- don't like it very much for "25% Chance To Cast Level 1 Teleport When Struck". It can save your bum, but also drop you in the middle of a boss pack. Tricky, especially HC.

    Aha, I didn't think about Untwinked. I also don't use an Occy right now, as my sorc uses full Tal's Set. I also have never used a sorc in HC.

    I don't know if my sorc is very lucky, bu - oh, wait.. she's dead, so maybe I should say "was very lucky"... (no, wait again, she's dead so she can't be that lucky... :scratch: ) At any rate, she found several +2 all sorc skills orbs before she even entered hell. And considering that this one "only" has +1 frozen orb and nothing else it's not really all that uber. :)

    (oh, and royal blue is indeed a lot more please to fishy's eyes :fish: )

    my $0.02 USD:

    @Mordalies:
    - why'd you waste a +12 resist jewel on that?

    - is your avatar supposed to be one of those Hawaiin luau fire juggler guys
    (you know the "natives" the hotel resorts hire to put on a show every
    night, but who is secretly hoping to score on a hot white mama from the
    mainland to whom he will declare "I am King Ka-meha-meha. Come partake
    of my Balls of Fire and I will bestow upon you my royal Pina Colada
    cream .... I could keep going on like this... ) :lol:

    maybe he had a 12 res jewel and needed the res?

    I think its a good orb for a untwinked sorc! Sure there´s some uniques that is better but not everyone run around witht he best items

    For an untwinked(?) HC FO sorc, that orb is indeed a very nice piece of equipment, and not a waste of the +12 jewel. What's the point of dying to elemental damage while it was sitting in your stash waiting for that 'perfect item'?

    I posted a very similar thread when I was first starting in SP 1.10, so I am going to defend this person.

    It is a very good item, considering it is a blue. For an untwinked sorc, it is godly. Socketing it with a rez jewel makes it as good as a custom rare. Granted, it is not a unique/set item, but this person is just doing untwinked full clears, no MF running, so +2 is just awesome.

    This is a nice gift to just drop at your feet, and proves how good the magic items are in 1.10. Look forward, it only gets better.
