Pure melee and Ubering So I'm having a few issues with ubering. And was wondering if maybe you guys had some ideas. I have a kind of unique build, but I can't stand up to lillith or mephisto right now. Here's what I use head: dream weap: Ebotdz body: CoH dusk shield: dream gloves: soul drainers (7/6) belt: Gloom's trap Boots: Waterwalk ring1: SOJ ring2: perf ravenfrost Some various life/AR charms, but not much. No skill charms yet 20/15 sorc torch 18/13/x anni Skills are: 20 tele 1 teleport 1 es 20 light mastery 20 warmth 20 enchant 1 fire mastery (so far) various prereq points merc: helm: Andy Visage armor: Stone weap: Eth Infinity Giant Thresher Now granted I already have a 40K melee from the dream and lightning mastery. Also I have a pretty high physical damage (gotta watch out for IM) and the dual leeching even in hell lets me stay alive with little to no potion usage. The general idea is a low ES (at around 55 or so) that soaks up a lot, then leaves the rest to high resists. I leech enough life and mana to make this a pretty self-sufficient build. I don't do it as bear cuz I port around a lot and pretty much dodge things manually. I prefer this over passion because passion makes me drink much more pots. Setting up ubering, I solo melee down izual without a problem, and solo melee down duriel with a little luck and drinking potions every 5-10 sec or so. If the merc is there though, duriel dies without too much issue. However, when I get to lillith, BOOM! I'm toast. resists are 75 across the board. Yet when I'm trying to melee her or anything, she just takes out chunks of life, and the poison keeps hurting. My merc dies in a second also against her. I can't seem to do anything to get her life down before I'm in critical danger. No amount of leech seems to be enough to equalize against her. Going in on a separate uber game, the same happens with Diablo and Baal, not problem equalizing with the melee, but I can't touch Meph without having to port out. Any ideas on how to finish a melee sorc for lillith and mephisto? Am I going to have to cop out and cheat with a spell or something? Is it impossible to melee build kill those 2? Interested in your opinions (those that have made melee sorcs and done ubering before) -Fujisai P.S. yes, it's incredibly fun playing this char. You're invulnerable walking death to everything that doesn't cast IM.
