    phoenix/dragon/dream trigger-sorc question/idea

    i know there could be more dmg other way but this could be pretty funny to try:

    i suppose fire mastery would boost the dmg of trigger-events, right?
    brainstorm-idea: everything triggers all the time :D

    you could wear 3 items (shield, armor, weapon) with any combination of dragon/phoenix or hoj as a weapon.

    a hoj/dragon/phoenix setup would grant the following fire skills:
    12% Chance To Cast Level 15 Hydra On Striking
    40% Chance To Cast Level 22 Firestorm On Striking 222 - 249 (with +6 skills)
    lvl 30 hf aura
    -48 enemy fire res

    dmg: (with +6 skills)
    firestorm 222 - 249 +275% fm = ~800
    hf 387 - 399 +275% fm = ~1100
    hydra 1230 - 1389 (lvl 36 fire mastery, no other synergy maxed yet)
    enchant 2105 - 2493 (10 fire skillers/max warmth/fm)

    1 hit with fire storm results in roughly: 5800 fire dmg
    +hydras spreading out everywhere and firestorm possibly hitting multiple targets AND including -48% enemy res (almost doubling fire dmg), serious dmg gets dealt:

    ~10k per hit +aura dmg + hydra dmg + venom (375-395 over 0.4sec)

    well not the maximum possible but still not so bad :) one could max lightnigh mastery and thunderstorm and put on a dream helm to add another 2 damage sources :D namely 350% * (1-648 + 195-294) = ~4200 lightning dmg.

    possibly, but no cool looking firestorms, no -28% res, no redemtion aura. calculation thing. but as stated above this is NOT about max damage more about triggering different stuff and looking wild.

    those stack. aura stacking a basis for any dual-dream build. lvl XX aura when equipped translates to +XX aura within the game.

    true it's a kinda sick peace of art. but since my old one broke in the forums and i was unable to find it... just made a new ;)


    shako, soj/bk, mara = +6 skills
    iirc these should apply to triggered events

    No +skill items will affect the level of %chance cast skills. Synergy, Mastery, and Facets do affect those chance cast skills. I am working on a similar Fire Sorc. She is an enchanter though. To enhance Firestorm a lot, try wearing "Stone" armor. This is similar to the Marrowwalk thing wit necros. Also you can wear Hellmouth to get Firestorm to trigger even more often, and a cheesy Meteor sometimes.
