    Melee Sorc: more damage output

    I was wondering, why hasnt any guide touched on Melee sorcs using double dream and enchant? With maxed fire master and lightning mastery, and enchant combined with the double dream wouldnt a melee sorc do alot more damage?

    I searched for a little while and didn't see anyone mention this but i was kinda lazy and didn't look too hard so if some one did bring this up before, i am sorry.

    It's because dual Dream is already overkill as it is. Better save to skill points to make a sturdier sorc (cold armors, etc.)

    yeah but it would stack right? i was thinking of somthing around these lines...

    20 light mastery
    20 enchant
    20 fire mastery
    20 warmth
    And ES or SA or both i really dont know

    Dream Helm
    Dream Shield
    Grief sword
    20 ias gloves (laying of hands, magnus or somthing)
    Nosferatu or Verdungo
    Highlords
    2 Life Leech Ring (maybe BK whatever)
    Gore Riders
    Tyraels Might or Gladiators Bane

    because of Huge AR bonus from enchant you should hit and if not you can use angelics because the "cannot be frozen" is in you armor.

    This set up should pretty much kill anything.

    Oh and Lots of Life Charms obviously

    Venom, Fire, Lightning no matter what the characters resists are, this will rape them. Because if you use beast and turn to bear, i am under impression you can switch weapons, but then i havent tried yet so i wouldn't know. But if you could switch to grief and you would have the sickest damage output ever 4 melee character.

    You can weapon switch and remain a bear, but using a multiple shealed phase blade might be a better idea.

    yeah i am starting to think grief wasnt the best idea... but then in its place... wouldn't passion work to get the zeal? the lvl 1 zeal would be boosted at least 3 lvls if u use 2 bk rings and highlords so it would be lvl 4 zeal... plus the 50-80% increased AR from passion would help alot. So your massive damage would most likely hit. What you guys think?

    Sorry to interrupt guys....I am a noob for melee sorc...therefore it might be a stupid question to ask...why need 20 lightning mastery?

    light mastery is for the dreams... 2 dreams gives a 30 holy shock aura... and the maxed light mastery will increase its damage.

    Lightning Mastery can boost holy shock?

    hehe...thx man..never though about that....

    looks like Lightning MAstery can boost all the lightning skill's dmg...

    haha..I wish my LS assassin can have bonus from it as well....


    by the way, about how much dmg it does for lvl 30 holyshock with 20lightning mastery? The melee sorc sounds very attractive to me now:p

    Well the max melee damage can be pushed over 50k, since lightning mastery applies twice on melee attacks(means whatever dmg u have for holy shock boosted by lightning mastery gets a SECOND multiplication by the lightning mastery again resulting in some crazy numbers). Anyway u should check the Bodomsorc guide sticky, it has all information inside.

    well... after i test out holy shock with enchant... ill write a guide...

    right now the stats will probably be the following... you would use many + skill items to buff you character before you go out (lets say +12)... and lets say you have all the things i listed maxed...
    Your damage would be the following after buffs...

    Enchant would add 2187-2632 dmg with an attack bonus of 299%... now lets say you lightning mastery was lvl 23 when on the field (bk rings and highlords) your dmg from that would be... 1-16341 lightning damage since the mastery is applied twice. plus a 85% increase of damage from being a bear (3 from beast and 3 from items) and the attack bonus from zeal 40%... and the damage from your weapon (in this case we are saying its passion but if it wasnt and we were talking about grief it would be a significant amount of venom damage) so with a weapon like passion... we are talking at least 160% enchanced damage.... so the hole thing would come out to a sick amount of elemental damage per hit... and thats if you want zeal from passion, if you dont you could get a weapon like botd and do a shitload of extra damage...

    Edit: i was mistaken how i calculated lightning dmg... its really some sick number above 40k

    There is actually a great guide here for duel dream sorc but from some reason its not archived, try searching a bit better i'm sure u will find it.
    I built my sorc from that guide and its the most powerfull and most fun char I ever played.
    Gl with it and dont forget, its VERY expensive.
