light sorc advice

well i found a griffons eye 20//12 so i thought i would make a light sorc.
i have griffons
spirit 26 fcr i think
3 light amulet
hoto 38
1 soj 1 fcr str resist ring

infinity on merc with andys as soon as he is high enough level....i guess my questions are 1. is hoto better than eschuta or should i go for eschuta .should i stick with vipermagi or should i go for chains of honor..cant remember which lightning breakpoint i need to hit 117?? im wearing tgods belt and i know i need to get arachs also. any advice would be helpful and appreciated. thank you

CoH is all around better than Viper in this case, because you don't need Viper's fcr at all.

Eschuta / Hoto: 40;
Arach: 20;
Spirit: 32;
Griffon: 25;

Or use an fcr ring if you can't get a 32 fcr spirit shield.

I like eschuta > hoto. Hoto's res isn't really needed (pvm) and the extra -8 or -10 light res you would get from socketing both eschuta and griff is well worth the effort.
Plus it looks a lot better.

Also, if you plan on playing it much, definitely get a forti on your merc. Imo it's the only act2 merc armor that really works, eth or not.

You may want to reroll your Spirit for 27+ fcr (117 breakpoint)... but if you already got that bp it's fine.

Am I the only one who prefers a Crescent Moon? The massive -35res really helps versus broken immunes. You can reach 117 FCR with Griffon's, 35 Spirit, Magefists, Arach's, and +2 sorc 17 FCR ammy.
