Pure Light MF Sorc for Baal/Chaos Runs Help! =(

Hey guys!
So I've had a basic light sorc running pit, andy, meph, pindle.
The easy stuff.
I realized my guy gets raped in WC and Chaos.

Here's my setup:
Level 93 Light sorc

Helm: Perfect Griffons w/ 5/5 light facet
Armor: mage plate enigma(anyone want to trade their dusk shroud for it?)
Weapon: Ist'd Oculus
Shield:Spirit 34FCR
Belt: Goldwrap
Gloves:Perfect Chance Guards
Boots:Perfect War Travelers
Amulet:Mara's 24resist
Ring1:Perfect Nagels
Ring2:Perfect Nagels

Switch Weapons/Shield
weapon: 4Bo CTA
shield: spirit 30FCR

Merc:
Armor: fortitude
Helm:Perfect Andariel's Visage
Weapon: infinity


This is what I know I need to change:
Belt= Arachnids
Gloves= Magefist for the FCR?
Rings= x2 GG10%FCR Rings(no clue how im gonna get those)
weapon= Perfect Light Eschutas?
shield= im clueless to what i should be using
armor= um'd perfect viperskin magi or ormus robes(help)
amulet= need help here


This is my resistances in hell with the current setup i have

Fire: 1
Cold: 36
Light: 36
Poison: 55

I'm thinking that the main problem is the FCR and resistances.
What do you guys think about the gear and the general outlook of my situation?
Thanks for helping and posting your replys <33!!

Re: Pure Light MF Sorc for Baal/Chaos Runs Help! =(

Merc is...HF I assume? You want to hit 117% FCR, so thats 25 Griffs + 40 Weapon + 35 Spirit + 10 Arach + one 10% FCR ring and you're there

Armor = CoH, with the budget you're showing
Weapon = HotO, that +15% lightning on Eschuta's wont do much after your LM bonus

Your gear seems to show that curious mix of super-elite-top end and kinda scrubby crap...:p

You only need to shoot for between 150-250 MF as an area-clearing MF sorc; you get more benefit from running faster than running richer. Perf Gheeds+Chances+Travs+Nagel+CoH puts you at 185; its a little low, but you can make up for it with some 7 MFSCs stuck below your lightning skillers and a FCR/MF ring, and eventually you can try to craft a 2 Sorc/RA/MF amulet (and if it has enough FCR, you would even be able to drop the FCR ring for another Nagel).

Re: Pure Light MF Sorc for Baal/Chaos Runs Help! =(

You seem to be in a bit of a no mans land for FCR. Why wear magefists if you have 20 10 40 20 20 25 35? That's like 180 FCR. The break for tele is 105 and the breaks for CL are 117 and 200 IIRC. You have 60 FCR you can lose. 20 on the magefists (go for Chancies if you want MF). 20 on the rings (nagels or soj or whatever crazy mana/res/str rings you have). 20 on the belt if you can find better. Goldwrap is annoying with it's 3 rows.

thanks for the advice, i totally forgot about the breakpoints here. i respected my guy to redo skill and i maxed all synergys and everything else i need. i have 10 points left for anything, should i put points into ice blast to kill lightning immunes? becuase sometimes my bot wanders off to kill the non immunes and im left to fend for myself against the immune

Considering light can hit over 50k if spec'd for it, it's defnitely a bit low. My budget builds usually end up in the 30k+ range, with general builds in the 40s-of course, this is with skillers.

I would personally shoot for at least 30k lite, especially since it sounds well without your budget range. 117 or 200 are the breakpoints to hit for fcr, and I honestly wouldn't go for 200 since it's very specialized and restricts gear choices.

Re: Pure Light MF Sorc for Baal/Chaos Runs Help! =(

how on earth do u reach 1-50K lightning damage? i know ur right and it's possible but i wanna know exactly how it can get that godly lol. im geared at 130FCR just enough for the breakpoints. Everything else i use is MF and + skills. My lightning is at level 37 doing 6- 28K. My inventory is filled with 23 7MFSC's. ATM i dont have any lightning skillers.

Re: Pure Light MF Sorc for Baal/Chaos Runs Help! =(

i would advise getting a hand held infinity, give the merc an insight, lose the nigma and get coh. you really don't need the occulus (the teleport is difficult to handle), and keep the nagels. really only need the 105 fcr breakpoint. i use hoto and spirit to tele to chaos sanc and throne then switch to infinity for killing speed

There's my sorc, does CS runs in 2 mins if I only clear seals and can do solo Baal runs in about 3-4 minutes, p1 throne room, p8 waves and p3 Baal. Carries about 250 mf I think, not that she's actually found anything :unimpressed:

Her damage is 5-20k, but I'm lacking skill charms, and ofc, I don't have access to Anni and torch.

You shouldn't die to Wisps, I run with 75 res and no absorb, just dodge them. Skill > Gear.

50k Takes very specific gear.

30k+ not so much, but yes, skillers are required after a while.

In my 200fcr setup I was at 40k+, but I had a +2 sorc 20fcr ammy and 9 skillers along with torch and anni

Re: Pure Light MF Sorc for Baal/Chaos Runs Help! =(

by the way guys, i'm having trouble in the throne room (hell). those undead soul killers just run up to me with amazing speed and hit me once and im dead. literally takes 1-2 hits max and im dead. they charge at me and it's gg. when im buffed i have 1900HP and one of their hits do 7/8 of my health. i dont get why these guys are so strong, it's ridiculous. even those death knights, baal etc dont do nearly that much damage. is there anyway out of this life of misery? becuase those are the only things that are killing me in my baal runs.

Did you get your resists maxed by now? Maybe it's an elemental enchanted pack.

My sorc has no trouble running Baal at 1.8k life...
