    Occy or Crescent Moon for Light Sorc?

    Hello.

    I was wondering if it's worth using an um to make a crescent moon for my pure lightning sorc? I don't have nearly enough for an insight yet but I do have both an occy and Um + Shael + tir + 3 os sword. I know -35 is pretty sweet but it doesn't have anything else that's useful for my sorc. How much damage difference are we talking here between +3 skill and -35% resist? I like the other mods on occy but the tele mod has killed me numerous times and I'm sick of it.

    imo a good eschutas is still pretty inferior to an occy or crescent moon.

    Yep, Eschuta's isn't that great since the +damage stacks on top of your mastery. In other words, it gives you the opportunity to say "woot, I went from +400% to +420% on my mastery!!! That bumped me from 25k to 25.3k damage!!!" <--- fyi, the math's not accurate, but the point is.


    If you don't have an Infinity merc (I assume that's what you meant instead of Insight), then the CresentMoon's effective damage will be higher than the +3 skills from the Occulus (against non-LI's).

    Personally I'd pick the occulus for the FCR, Resists and +Vit/Ene, but if you're sick of Occy, trying Cresent Moon isn't a bad idea.
