    Vipermagi
    Occulus
    Magefist
    Spirit Monarch

    I'd say those are the most important and very cheap. If Occulus is out of your league, you could also use Suicide Branch or another Spirit made in a 4 socketed normal sword.

    From the Arreat Summit:

    Aim for 2x res Vipermagi when you're on a budget.

    It sucks, means that if you get hit you have a 25% chance to cast a random tele. I don't know where exactly you tele (whether it's random or opposite direction of where you got hit) but it's easily the most annoying mod in the entire game. I guess it makes up for the other godly mods for such a common item.

    Well, the bone prison on Arm of Leoric annoys me more, because it totally sabotages mobility. This oculus' issue isn't that annoying to me, although yea, it depends a lot on play style (and on luck/bad luck as well, from time to time).

    People in the Trade Values don't like to answer common questions about uniques much. I've seen 25 or less Vipers go for 5 or less PGems. Occulus got more expensive this ladder, usually Lem+, that being at least 20 PGems. MFist is cheap unless it had perfect defense. Spirit Monarchs I'm not sure, but are in the saem range I think. Viscerataunt and Whitstan's Guard are good options if you're going block, both for fez PGems. Peasant Crown War Hat is another cheap option. Are you converting a char or starting over?
    The 25% chance to teleport on Occulus is a matter of taste really. If you're going to be a straight MFer, you'll be teleing most of the time, and having to tele once more to return to your original path will only take half second at most. I've got used to it really, and didn't bother much. but then again I prefer block sorcs, which reduces greatly your chance of being phased away...

    err, in all honesty, i'd try and get full tals. you should be able to pick up almost the entire set for 25pgems.

    No way he can get armor and ammy for 25pgems... w/o those the set is weak imo.. but yeah if you can colect about 120pgems I think that would get you the entire set.. counting armor as um and ammy as pul (what I usually see those two go for).
    I would get the vipermagi, occulus/spirit sword/wizardspike, spirit monarch/mosers, magefists/trang gloves, and a peasant crown/Lore runeword (ort and sol in some sort of combo) if I was building a budget sorc. Once I could afford the armor/ammy I would prob upgrade to tals, especially if I was using two elements.
