    lightning sorc advice

    Hi!

    I have a lvl 91 sorc (Im doing only MF) that has these stats and equipment:

    stats:

    str 161
    dex 78
    vit 442
    en 78


    equipment:
    - isted shako
    - 36 hoto
    - ral'ed vipermagi
    - 35 spirit monarch
    - magefists
    - 29 maras
    - 2 soj's
    - war travellers
    - CTA, 30-ish spirit
    - 19/13 torch, 17 anny, 3 light skillers

    after precasts, life is 1892 and mana 1162
    I'm doing 29k lightning dmg and 11k chain lightning, so that's ok in my opinion. FCR is 145

    The problem is MF. With this equipment it's 120.

    Do you have any advice what to change so I can have higher mf?

    Thank you!

    You'll want to stay above the 117 FCR bp, so you have 25 to lose somewhere. You could drop Hoto, Magefists and 1 soj for ist-Occy, Chancies and a fcr ring. You'll lose 16 res, 1 +skill and some mana but gain 120 MF. That's enough imo.

    If you can get Griffon's you can also swap Vipermagi for Skullder's.

    so 240 is enough for MF?
    Also had dillemas about switching vipermagi for Enigma. Could gain aroun 90 mf on that, more skills, but lose now maxed out resistances.

    Thank you for your answer

    I wouldn't put too much emphasis on MF - when you consider how tiny your base chance is for most items (much less than 1%) and factor in diminishing returns, that additional MF doesn't even increase your chance to 2% in most cases. Ultimately, your focus should be on killing speed, as its total number of kills that will ultimately lead to more finds.

    gheed's? You seem to be missing one. Perfect one will net an additional 40% mf.

    250MF is adequate for an area-clearing MFer like Light Sorc. 350 is better, but not worth sacrificing killspeed for.

    Gheeds+Travs+Ist Shako is plenty. Supplement with 7MFSCs stuck below your Lightning skillers :)
