    Lightning Sorc Gear Setup Help

    Setup #1:
    Shako (Lite Facet)
    CoH
    Eschuta (Lite Facet)
    Spirit Monarch
    Arach
    2x SoJs
    +3 Lite/10%FCR
    Magefists
    Treks

    Setup #2:
    Griffin's (Lite Facet)
    CoH
    Eschuta (Lite Facet)
    Spirit Monarch
    Arach
    2x SoJs
    Mara's
    Gloves (Bloodfists?)
    Treks

    Setup #1 leads to more damage and a +1 higher warmth :)

    Setup #2 leads to more -%Enemy Lite Res. by 20% more.

    Questions:
    Does -%Enemy Lite Res. work?
    How does +%Lite Damage work... I heard it was broken.
    Which gloves for setup two?
    Any criticisms on either setup?

    Thanks.

    Stack that cheese... Once more; it should be easy to figure out this kind of stuff by yourself, especially considering all the topics in this forum that go over this.

    Anyway;
    1) Yes it works.
    2) Yes it works. It is added up with lightning mastery so the relative/absolute bonuses are very small. But it works.
    3) Frostburn works, Bloodfist works, dracs work for str and life AEK... Doesn't matter much.
    4) Stack that cheese, is all I have to say. Generally, the second setup is more effective and more expensive.

    <-- I fixed that for you. Setup #2 will be better.



    1. -% Enemy Resists works at 100% effectiveness against non-immune monsters (up until the monster resist is lowered to -100%).

    2. +Light Damage stacks on top of your Lightning Mastery. So, you'll go from ~450% from your mastery to ~470% from your mastery... a small increase, at best. (which, by the way, is why I think Eschuta's isn't very good - I'll take HotO any day of the week, and with the rest of your gear, you could comfortably make max resists).

    3. Gloves:
    - Frostburn's = lots of mana, probably improving your regen even more than Magefists
    - Dracul's Grasp = +life per kill works just fine for casters, which can be a nice way to help replenish your life bulb. The +str will help equip the Spirit too.
    - Chance Guards = MF and gold-find never hurt anybody

    4. Going back to the Eschuta's... would you use a magic wand with +3 sorc skills, +~2 Lightning Mastery, +~50 mana, and 40% FCR?... because that's basically what Eschuta's is.

    Also, you didn't mention the FCR on the Spirit, but I assume you're planning for it to be high enough to reach the 117 FCR breakpoint (which definitely makes sense).
