    How can any teleporting caster class play without insight?

    When I made my sorc, I was like wow, i blow through mana teleporting like none other, i end up having to make a tp just to revive mana

    Now on my druid its the same thing.. am i missing something here?

    Those infinity sorcs don't need mana or something? jeebus.

    Es = assloads of mana. Probably also use an autopotting program to keep mana up.

    From a certain level on, lightning-based sorcs have enough +lightning to teleport endlessly without losing any mana, without spending a single point into energy.

    I have a lightsorc without insight on merc, and without Es.
    But I hardly ever need to pot. I use some nice rings with fcr,res,80+mana though, and a torch+anni.

    EDIT: Cta makes a huge difference too.

    Same goes for Hammerdins.

    +0-2 on Head (Unless it's a Pally circlet)
    +3 on Weapon
    +2 on Chest
    +1 on Belt
    +1 in Inventory
    +2 Shield (Spirit)
    +0-2 on Rings (SoJ's/BK's, if FCR not needed)
    +0-2 on Amulet (Mara's +2, Craft/Rare Amy +0)
    +1 Initial from Enigma

    Total: lvl 10-16 Teleport: 8-14 mana to cast. Not much, ey?

    Re: How can any teleporting caster class play without insight?

    I don't use Insight on:
    My blizzballer Baalrunner (kelpie snare)
    Any of my three light sorceresses (reapers toll, infinity)

    It is quite possible. Just use a few pots. If you kill enough you can pick them up.

    I do use it on my meteorb but only because I haven't bothered to change. Plus I don't baal run with her.

    You know, I mostly agree with this. However, strange thing: Cows NEVER drop enough mana pots for my Javazon. Ever since she exchanged the Shako for the Griffon's (16/10, lol), she's not been able to cast more than 11-12 javelins without chugging an [mpot].

    I only ever use Insight for a Sorceress when I use ES, for every other Sorceress, my mana goes up when I teleport just because warmth regenerates my mana that quickly.

    With enough +skill gear, teleport (one point) falls to only four mana per cast; with the same gear and one point in warmth, you're regenerating more per second than you're spending. This, of course, is just the case for sorcs.

    I say go with silk's if you are cowing. There's more than enough cows to make mana per kill worth it.

    Or you could stick a Crescent Moon on her and you should be fine.

    Re: How can any teleporting caster class play without insight?

    What do you mean by that? I am using a javelin as a weapon, can't wield a Crescent Moon.

    A very good idea! At my current level, each LF eats up around 25 mana, which can be replenished by simply killing 5 cows while wearing Silkweaves...

    Oh lawd, I mixed up the RW and the Amulet...

    I still think mana/kill would work better here.

    I don't use Insight on my LFzon when cowing either. Actually, I don't bother with a merc. They're too likely to do something stupid for my taste. :grin:

    Re: How can any teleporting caster class play without insight?

    I don't either. It's far more difficult to herd cows when a Merc or a Valkyrie runs around, so I get rid of them. I could theoretically use Teleport, but I don't want to put an Enigma on her - I like COH better.
