    Nova Sorc Build

    Hey guys, I recently made a nova sorc, and I couldn't find a good build for one, so now that I think I have this build done, I'm gonna share it with all you people

    Skill (add them in this order):
    1 warmth
    1 frozen armor
    20 nova
    Energy shield- Enough so that when you have all your charms and equip its level 40, because extra levels here after that don't matter

    every other extra point after you maxed all that stuff goes into warmth

    Dexterity: Just enough dex for your equipment, with the correct charms you won't have to add anything here

    +1-2 To Strength (varies)

    If when you have all your equipment on, and your strength is base, replace the strength mod on the scs or gc with a vita mod for it.

    My character doesn’t have all these charms or perfect stuff, but to create a perfect one, this would be the prime things to have.

    General Gameplay:

    Never teleport onto a paladin or a druid. You will be destroyed. A good strategy for paladins and druids is to stay away so just the edge of ur nova hits them, and they are a safe distance away. The same goes for cs javazons (unless, of course they have farcast, in which case, get as close as possible to them).

    Kill characters with poison damage quickly, and for bowzons, try to get the first strike, because if they have knockback and hit you first, you will be owned.
    For ww barbs and sins, don’t nova until they start to whirlwind, when they do, teleport to the side of them (just out of their range) and nova until their whirlwind is finished, and repeat that.

    For trapsins, teleport around them and let your ts attack, until you see a little bit of an opening, then teleport on to them, and keep novaing until they are out of your range.

    For boner necros, teleport around them, and test summoning nova, until you can hit them, and just try to lock onto them.

    For summoners, they will tele onto you usually so just nova around, and if they use their long range to get you, lock onto one of his minions and teleport then quickly switch to nova.

    For against regular sorcs, dodge their attacks and then nova them, if they teleport too much, most likely your ts will be stronger, so you can eat away at them like that.

    Thats pretty much my entire thing, so, yeah, I'm going to submit this thread.
