    How much FCR ?

    hi i got a sorc with only 60 FCR is that enough ? using vipermagi and ocu. Not using magefist cos i need the mana bonus from Frostburns.

    And if it matters im pure fircesorc. So is 60fcr enough if not how much is ideal ? Also like to duel so maybe much FCR is handy in there....

    60cr is no better than 0fcr, if you were to get 63fcr you'ld hit a breakpoint, the next of which is at 105

    After toying around with 63+ and 105+ fcr the only noticable difference in meteorb would be the teleport. I dont know about other builds but for meteorb 63fct should be the desired break point. Concerning Sepiroths 60%, I would suggest obtaining an Arachnid Mesh for the 20% fcr and of course the +1 skill.

    hmmm i can switch rings to for 10 extra fcr but using a 17 enregy 104 mana ring with 9 poison res. Gives me about 200 EXTRA mana with frostburn !!!
    Guess il mf a bit for a arachnid.

    That's crap, you're still 3 or 4 frames faster at 60% than at 0%. Though you're a tiny 3 FCR short of the next breakpoint. Craft a caster belt or amulet i'd say :) (lidless wall is also an option)

    hmm using Stormshield for block and DR. Duel to so its esential to have max block and the DR. But whats the breakpoint thing ?

    Think my only option would be a Arachnid cos im using mara as AMU and do have a caster amulet with +2 to sorc but it lacks the resistance.

    Arachnid is a good choice!
    The breakpoint thingy means that when you have and fcr of 63 you will teleport at 9 frames per second instead 10, and also then you reach a value that is similar to frames it takes for monsters to attack. So your chance to escape them before they even hit you is even higher than with a 10frame rate :D

    Infact it all comes down to the way this teleport anymation is displayed. Higher FCR means that the Tleeport animation takes less frames to complete, so its faster :D
    There breakpoints where you can be another frame faster, which is 105, or 117 for Lightning.

    Hope that helps.
