    Matriach Shein

    Yes, I was one of the MP group having a group ... erm Mat/Pat :tongue:

    Shein is a pure light sorceress (IE didn't chicken out again and go dual tree).

    Level 80

    Skills:
    20 Chain Light
    20 Lightening
    20 Charged Bolt
    20 Lightening Mastery
    1 Static
    1 Shiver Armour (I know, I should do that on switch)
    1 Teleport
    1 Warmth
    2 spare points - probably going in Nova

    Stats:
    Str 136
    Dex 39
    Vit 229
    Energy 35
    51 spare points - probably going in vit

    Resists:
    Fire 27
    Cold -1
    Light 34
    Poison 50

    Gear:
    Spirit Monarch - actually got 35% fcr :grin:
    Viper Magi - 35 resists
    Crescent Moon axe
    Thunder Gods Belt
    Harly Helm
    Magefists
    Aldurs boots - you try keeping up with a running druid :shocked:
    Rings 10% fcr plus resists
    Ammy 10% fcr plus resists
    2 Light skillers
    2 small life charms, 2 small resist charms

    Moron:
    Act 2 Holy Freeze - well they move so slowly anyway
    Tal Rasha Helm
    Duriels Shell Armour
    Insight Thresher

    Thanks to all who MP'd with her on her journey. I was practically coasting during Act 2 with all the LI's.

    Good job all.

    Edit:
    @Encrusted - Notice what the Moron is carrying? That helped especially later on. Heavy pot usage when he died (IE frequently). But my other sorceresses don't use insight so I am used to gulping pots lol.

    Congrats! Did you run into any mana problems with such low Energy?

    Hey, another CM sorc. Congratz!
    *kicks the collective shins of anyone doubting the Hell-viability of a single-tree sorc*

    How do you like the max-vita build? How many life did you have in the end?
    I'm just wondering if the trouble of rebuilding (block->vita) my lightsorc is worth it.

    CM?
    She has 877 life - I will probably dump the spare points there. I only kept them in case I needed a bit more dex for gear.

    I seem to eat a lot of pots without any pots. The armour I have on switch is helping with ranged attackers.

    She doesn't feel finished for some reason, although she kills well enough.

    Frankly, I doubt I would have Mat'd her without the MP. Single tree is a serious pain. I have spent an hour trying to do my Hellforge to find everything Light immune. I finally kill everything - after spending time getting things to sell to resurrect the merc. Then I discover it won't let me hit the forge for some reason. Aghhh.

    Give me time to play her at a high level. Maybe then I will be used to a single tree playstyle.

    Why would you ever call them morons? They are very smart and most importantly they never die.

    Anyway,congrats for the mat.

    Congradulations on the Mat, one of the MP group of four (or five) from this morning.

    Edit: Changed Pat to Mat. :rolleyes:

    Congratulations Thyiad.
    There were some great MP sessions in this last week - was that new char to Mat in less that one week?
    Retirement plans if any?

    @max - no she took longer than a week; I was interchanging two sorcies in MP and I don't think some people noticed lol
    Retirement: I have actually only retired one character - my first Mat, Kheldar (assassin). I want to get Shein some levels and try and run the WSK. I don't actually have a char that can do it easily.

    @jgreg7 - the LCS says
    CB - 233/254 L - 4/9104 CL - 4/4779
    Just about to pump Nova now - staying single tree with this one. :grin:

    @Frostburn - thanks for the vote of support but whatever you don't mention it was Normal Diablo :embarassed: but at least she didn't die :cool:. I had forgotten about the cows ...

    Edit: just massacred a load of cows lol. moooooo erk mooooo erk
    I should have said Baal running not the WSK. I know what I mean.

    The last time I saw Shein in action, she fried Diablo's mangy hide.

    I think she'll do very well in the WSK. Fear the Souls, but all other LIs in there will pose little threat. She'll be able to do Baal runs without breaking a manicured fingernail.

    Oh, and give the Cow Level a go. It should be a steak out. (*groan*)

    Edit: @Jantia's post below. Yeah, I totally agree with you. When I said 'LIs will pose little threat', I meant Shein should just tele past them.:wink3: As you noted, 105% FCR is great for that. My Tal sorc with 70% FCR doesn't even get hit when tele-ing, so 105% is even better.

    Too bad Obedience is not open to vanilla players. :mad:

    WSK running will suck with this sorc IMO.

    It looks very solid for Baal running though. Since you break the 105 FCR bp for teleing it'll be easy on the way down and gloams (in small numbers in the Throne Room) are easily cleared by the merc at p1, especially with tele, although you may want some CB.

    Edit: just saw Frostie's post. To defend my claim let me speak from experience. Lightning Beetle boss packs >>> you. They'll swarm your merc, and if you try to tele him to you, you'll get swarmed. No need to talk about large packs of gloams.

    Also the third level has 2 types of spawnable of LI's and relying on a merc where OK's spawn often is not the best idea. Not to mention Frenzytaurs/PI (unleechable) hell temptresses who will eat up your merc in seconds.


    Also, consider the Obedience/Treachery/Andy's helm w/ fire res/IAS jewel setup on your merc. Kills gloams really quickly with 80 IAS, with maxed (and stacked resists/curse reduction/DR if fade procs), awesome damage and CB. You lose meditation and CBF, but its not needed on Baal runs with a lightning character. If fade t
