    Insight, and prayer mercs...

    Will a prayer merc synergize the meditate from Insight, and thus granting you his prayer aura "twice" - one from Prayer and one from Meditate (prayer synergy)?

    It's been puzzling me for quite some time...

    Plus it'd be hella sexy on my future ES sorc. :)

    yep :D it is a really nice combiantion ^^

    Making an ES sorc who get her mana healed and her life double healed with something like 40 a sec and she only has 120 ^^ while she will get something like 200 mana pr. sec with 5k or somehing (not 100% sure on that one, but you can look it up in the strategy compendium I guess)

    Yeah, that is good, because you don't HAVE to get to lvl 40 ES to survive... My sorcs actually do quite good with just ~lvl 15 ES with max synergy. Saves a lot of points for damage.

    I guess you'll go pvp so I'm just wondering how much mana and dr/mdr you plan to achieve :)

    I guess you're gonna use 20 ORB, 20 IB, 20 CM, 20 Telek, and 20 ES? ^^

    If you want to know how much mana you'll reg then use this equation:
    Mana Regenerated per second = 25 * [[256 * max_mana / (25 * 120)] * (%Mana Regeneration/100 + 1] / 256

    [] = Round Down

    From the STRAT COMP :)

    I'll use her for HC MFing purposes - planing on ancient tombs, mephisto, andariel, duriel and pindle runs. ;)

    She will rule in ancient tunnels, but make sure to max mercs poison and lightning resists. Lots of skeletons down there, so life leech isn't the best way to go about it.

    The way I keep mine alive (same build as you are planning) is I gave him a Guardian Angel and a Kira's Guardian, in addition to his Insight (a Bill, actually, I'm short on Eth Colossus Voulges).

    When he takes much damage, I just tele away a little bit, and if it's poison damage, I feed him an antidote. If my sorc gets poisoned, I of course drink an antidote myself.

    FO works WONDERS down there, by the way. Players 8, no problem!

    Omg. We seems to be thinking totally alike. I figured double prayer would more or less make lifeleech obsolete when combined with the slow from FOrb and teleporting, however if it's really needed, maybe a Tal's Mask + Um could do the trick too? Hmm. :)

    Why not some Cannot Be Frozen, nice resists and +life/def per clvl with the good old cheap duriel's shell?

    Because you'd miss out on the +15% max resist all on the Angel, and even a bad Tira's have 50% resists and Cannot be Frozen.
