    Matriarch IRunForYou - your standart blizzsorc.

    It's been a while since
    1) I started her
    2) Played SP more actively.

    It all started with the release of the new ladder, which suffered from rollback exploits in bnet. I gave up playing bnet for some weeks and started in SP. After it got alright, I returned to active playing of bnet, but played SP too. These days (weeks) I grew tired of bnet again, so I decided to mat my first character I made in my return in SP. I've got a werewolf druid and perhaps a frenzier in normal and a javazon in hell act 3, but they were slower to finish. Besides, as I said - the first to be created gets the first to be mat'd/pat'd.

    As it is my first character, I had to deal with all the stuff untwinked before I got to run hell mephisto for better gear.

    Don't know hot to post direct ATMA readout, so I'll copy it single-handedly. I have 60 more stats to spend, will see how it goes, perhaps I may pump them in vitality. :)

    Code:
    Character stats without gear/with gear:
    Level 83
    Strength - 139 / 148 
    Dex - 31/ 54
    Vita - 150 / 199
    Energy - 110 / 137
    HP with gear on: 837
    Mana with gear on: 757
    Resists: 22 / 36 / -8 / 9
    Funny thing about the items is that the game somehow kept dropping the gear I need in ethereal variants. Got 2x eth Lidless wall and here is the current gear readout:

    Notable finds: hellforge sucked a bit with a Hel and a Pul. While staying in act 3 though she pulled off a Sur in LK in a few runs. Meph dropped her both the ethereal Occulus and the ethereal Shako. Pindle dropped a nice Tal armor and a Trang belt from higher TCs. Now the only thing missing off the Tal set is the amulet, duh.

    Screenies:
    [URL="http://i45.tinypic.com/2i2c5mg.jpg"=http://i45.tinypic.com/2i2c5mg.jpg]Immortal Lister for my merc...luckily, he had no badass mods for my sorc. Worldstone was the second hardest part in the game after CS[/URL]

    [URL="http://i45.tinypic.com/1zefbef.jpg"=http://i45.tinypic.com/1zefbef.jpg]Baal was tricky due to my low hp and blood mana which ripped me apart. Luckily, Pratham served me well in this situation.[/URL]

    [URL="http://i48.tinypic.com/r6zhb6.jpg"=http://i48.tinypic.com/r6zhb6.jpg]Baal's drop wasn't so amusing[/URL]

    Any future plans? Well, what can you expect from a cold sorc - off to pindle/lk/cs runs. Cs is a bit hard for now and all my items are ethereal, so they might get broken. For now it's pindle + lk + AT sometimes for me. I may respec her later, but I need a good gear for rolling a lightsorc.

    Re: Matriarch IRunForYou - your standart blizzsorc.

    105% FCR is the breakpoint you want to hit. I hit this via:

    35% Spirit
    20% Trangs Gloves
    30% Occy
    20% 3 piece Tals

    Upgrading your sorc's Spirit to 35% and acquiring tals ammy for the 3 piece tals isn't an expensive upgrade to make.

    War Travs are pretty much the goods boots wise if you plan to MF run (which I'm assuming you do with the Pindle and AT call).

    SoJs are the ideal rings but expensive, so I can understand if you stick with nagels in the interim. The +1 skills and mana boost is really handy for a Blizzsorc.

    I don't like Chaos Sanct at all. Having merc dependance on the Oblivion Knights really blows. Baal runs though are an easy prospect. Just set the 2nd wave to players 1 and the rest at players 8 is perfectly manageable. Occasionally you'll get immune to cold Lister but just cheese him by teleporting him out of the throne room.

    Stat points come down to the max block (i.e. dex) vs all vita debate. I have a Call To Arms and went all vita with no regrets, and I'm also a hater of dex for the block lock potential and mob death that goes with it. This debate can rage on for ages though so I won't delve deeper than that.

    Light sorc is nice but an expensive leap. I wouldn't bother myself without doing Infinity, and would prefer to spend the Bers on gunning for an Enigma if I had the chance.

    Re: Matriarch IRunForYou - your standart blizzsorc.

    Yeah, same thoughts exactly about the light sorc.

    Otherwise - I will get 105 fcr breakpoint later, always doing it with my cold sorcs in bnet with fathom + 10 fcr ring + 35 spirit + tal pieces and magefist.

    WT are still elusive, but they WILL drop eventually, also a better gloves for her. After I acquire some base items for my druid it's off to him, till then - massive farming when I have the time :p

    Re: Matriarch IRunForYou - your standart blizzsorc.

    Yeah dude, you got it.

    I prefer the occy rig to fathom with no Infinity or hope of breaking cold immunes. The +res really helps as well as the MF bonus and FCR, and the ring space is best occupied by SoJs.

    I'm currently doing the same game of light sorc vs barb upgrades, and the barb is definitely winning the battle ;)
