    Well.. all a person can do to beat infinity nova is keep a distance while 200fcr has range. Though, assuming they don't completely stack over the -res, nova will deal alot more damage. Pointless if you cannot hit

    I meant both are Nova sorcs but different equipment. I've heard conflicting advice.

    -res from a sorc (excluding infinity users/cold sorcs) is a joke. It's so easy to stack over.. what.. 25? 35? light resist.

    Against pub.. I'd honestly think 200fcr has a better chance though infinity sounds tempting.

    I would go with 200fcr, nova has limited range. With infinity you will have to get close wait for convic to apply*takes a sec* then nova then try to tele out. With 200 fcr you can tele around and either have them get close to chase you which you can nova and tele away, or tele around them with novas then escape.

    Do you think Nova damage w/o mass lower resist is sufficient to kill?

    Assuming perfect gear:
    -25 Griff
    -5 Viper
    -5 Wizzie
    Total -35 only

    As I was saying.. 35 lightning resist is easy to stack. Everybody stacks over it without even trying as a great number of people have resist/life or something similar. Meh --'

    If anything, I'd prefer the dmg% of the facet, which is not that useful on a fire/light sorc, because nova doesn't do that much damage.

    Vital right?

    Both are not that diffcult to stack over.so I will personal go for 200 fcr nova for unperpare players.Unless u are a well build ES sorc,then i think infinity sorc is better in tanking

    Ive come across an infinity nova sorc on Europe that was pretty effective, killed a fair few pubbies. Pissed me off more than anything due to a ridiculous energy shield and her not really doing all that much damage to my barb.

    Ive fought a few nova sorcs on my bvc, but never played one. From my experience, an infinity nova sorc takes too long to get the casts off on me while being stuned. Maybe with a bit more fcr they could get off the novas they need before I ww them to death. Just a thought from the leaping bvc perspective.

    The point mentioned about the conv earlier is also viable, definitely does take too long for it to activate on another teleing target.

    On text, nova absolutely begs to go 7 frames and its associated gear. (griffons, viper, spirit, etc etc.)

    On moor, infinity supremes.

    Its a scientifically proven fact, btw.

    Re: Informal poll: 200fcr or Infinity Nova PvP

    i'd choose infinity sorc
    i've been playing it all ladder and its my favorite char by far
    for those of you that says its easy to stack or whatnot

    infinity's conviction + -55resis + griffon = -160 resis all
    this pretty much kills most chars easily because lightning damage can reach about 22-24k with decent gear

    i use perfect gears so my char hits 4.2k mana and 1.2k life thats pretty good tanking
    i kill pretty much
    all zons
    all cold sorcs
    all necros (except xlnc-takeA who's developed this hybrid that kills es sorcs ~_~)
    most druids but its hard because some druid just keep running and recharging their cyclone armor
    paladins that do not use their salvation or light resis
    (as a sorc with no block any high stacked pally with amazing resis can just charge me to death)
    some fireball sorcs but fb > light in terms of cast rate/mana etc so its iffy depends on the other's skill level
    pretty much all barbs too

    i usually go 105 fcr
    but i can change to 117fcr for faster cast rate but my mana is only 3.5k then

    im on west ladder
    char name: jigglypuffs
    its lvl 97 atm
