    Gameplay: Everything exept RoF,CS,baal wave 3 and ancients in hell were on p8 and she owned all non LI's very fast.Hardest monsters were baal minions wave 3 and lister(extra fast = Yuck).

    Deaths: Very many - It isnt easy to play a char with 800 life.

    Drops:Stone crusher from random monster in RoF,pul in ancients way from an artic blast casting creature:brainiac:

    Hellforge.NM Um hell Lum

    Overall i liked this character, becoz of her very quick killing, but she was very fragile which i didnt like.In the future she will hopefully find many HR's in AS.:smiley:

    Pretty lady there you've got naab, do you have a lot of mana problem even with the help of insight? I went energy route so I don't know how you did it. :thumbsup:

    No mana problems - with 500 mana insight regenerates it very fast.

    @suiling iirc some guy had a light damage of 10- 33k, so 20k isnt very big.

    congrats on your mat.
    the 20K damage isn't impresive at all. the killing here comes from -60%lighting resistance.

    @suiling: read fishy guide deeper and you'll find you can match any other uber char closely.

    Such a subjective thing. It really depends on what you want the character to do ultimately. A fishymancer is strong without relying on a lot of elite gear. A Meteorb or Blizzball sorc is also very strong without Elite gear and can MF very well and also have Teleport as a skill. A fishy is very safe though with all his minions. A LF Zon is also a very powerful build, but needs some gear to be truley powerful and doesn't like LI monsters, less MF too.

    Edit: Contrats Naab, built my own Lightining Sorc not long ago :thumbsup:

    First congrats on finishing the game!

    second, to add some remarks based on my experience with pure-light sorc

    You haven't mentioned Frozen Armor among your skills, though I hope you had 1 point in it, it's definitely worth it.

    Unless you want to use 2-handed staff, a blocking character is more suitable for this build. Unlike other sorc builds, the light sorc gets in close combat quite often, because of her "unreliable" min damage and long spell animations. Being able to block 3 hits out of 4 helps more than additional life thanks to higher vitality; 800 life should suffice for her. Also while switching for LR wand, blocking is extremely useful.

    Though Spirit runeword looks nice, I doubt it's worth investing so many points in strength to handle monarch, esp. with your other excellent gear (griffon's, perfect facets etc).

    For comparison, my sorc had no more than 900 life at lvl91 with 250 base vit (too much IMO), wielding upgraded Visceratuant for decent block. She also made good use of Energy Shield. Regardless of what people say, it provides additional protection and, most important, prevents you from getting into hit recovery when struck. This should keep you pretty safe.

    Ugla

    One of the matriarchs where you can guess the character type from the name of it...

    Congrats though! Have to say, as far as sorceresses go, I'd rather play a pure light sorc than a meteorb or a blizzballer or whatever the combo is these days. Kudos.
