    Input for the "Experimental Sorc Guide"

    I am sure you all have read the post new experimental sorc guide. Which basicly is a FO sorceress with max telekenisis and and E-shield. I am here to report back on what I have found, and urge other players to do so too.

    I had a lot more luck by simply putting 0 points into vitality, even if you play untwinked, you will end up with vita charms in the end which (20=10) points in vit. While if you spend those 10 points in mana, you could get (10=40), then factor in the fact that you have +max mana by percent, its a lot better than life. The only problem with this build is that you will be drinking a lot of mana potions just to keep your mana shield up, this is no problem for mephy runs. But in regular pvm, you find yourself constantly replenishing potions. Which bring us to the only solution warmth. I know point in warmth feel wasted when all you are using is a timered spell, but it seems that warmth deserve more points in here as well. I was able to reach 1k max with my relatively poor gear for ladder.

    Here is what I used:
    ptopaz shako
    vipermagi
    occulus
    lidless
    frostburns
    Viper Knot: 2 sorceress skills, 24 cold resist, +10 to mana, 2 ll
    Silkweave
    Goldwrap

    I used 6 Cold skill Gcs (plain), and a lot of 16+ life scs. In the end my stats looked like:
    796 life
    2109 mana

    This turned out to be pretty good with enough mana (haha, i pretty much used mana gear only b/c of that, and I will also admit, those were cheaper than stuff like skulders and anarchid mesh...shudder). I had a lot of fun with it. Not really the most overpowering build, certainly won't be my first ladder character. But try it, its fun.

    The reason why I chose to use Goldwrap is simply b/c this *** wouldn't trade me his Gloom's trap. Yes this was a little twinked, but I made sure this sorc didn't get really good equip (unlike the suggested equip) b/c I didn't really want to waste too much cash and time on her. That is why she is only lvl 83, haven't even completed izual quest yet, grrr need more points in warmth!!!!!

    I have a orb that gives shiver armor, since i mainly had to come to town to get pots alot, i reset shiver armor every time i return to town. I might put points in that spell, not sure yet. I maxed telekenesis first though, then went to orb+cold mastery, then ice bolt, then a couple of points in E-shield, I plan on putting rest in mana

    I don't even have a shako. Does that mean I'm too poor for this build? :D

    however, in this example, es was not maxed, tk was. in that (or any case), just one or two dmg to mana items would help your mana bulb stay full.
