    PvP dualdragon melee soso

    Introduction

    It isnt a full-guide, it is only mini-guide.If i have positive ratings then i'll make full guide too :)
    So actually i'm making a dualdream zeal enchantress for PvP, but had this idea and i want write this and know , how u feel/think about it.:rolleyes:
    This char will have 44 Holy Fire aura and -20 fire res by 3 runeword!:shocked:

    Stats

    Strength:enough for gear
    Dex:enough for gear
    Vita:none
    Mana:pump it (see later why)

    Equipment

    Weapon:Hand of Justice PHASE BLADE (Sur-Cham-Amn-Lo)

    100% Chance to Cast Slvl 36 Blaze when You Slvl-Up
    100% Chance to Cast Slvl 48 Meteor when You Die
    Slvl 16 Holy Fire Aura when Equipped
    +33% Increased Attack Speed
    +280-330% Enhanced Damage
    Ignore Target's Defense
    7% Life Stolen Per Hit
    -20% to Enemy Fire Resistance
    20% Deadly Strike
    Hit Blinds Target
    Freezes Target +3

    Weapon has itself 33 ias which is 11 fpa and -20 fire res come good :laugh:

    Standard attack ias/fpa with phase blade:

    ias (%) / fpa
    0 % 13
    10 % 12
    24 % 11
    48 % 10

    U will need only 15 ias to hit the last breakpoint.

    Armor+Shield:Dragon (Sur-Lo-Sol)

    20% Chance to Cast Slvl 18 Venom when Struck
    12% Chance to Cast Slvl 15 Hydra on Striking
    Slvl 14 Holy Fire Aura when Equipped
    +360 Defense
    +230 Defense Vs. Missile
    +3-5 to All Attributes
    +0.375 to Strength Per Clvl
    Increase Maximum Mana 5%
    +5% to Maximum Lightning Resist
    Damage Reduced by 7%

    2 runeword will give 14 % dr, 10% extra mana and a lot of str.

    The rest of the gear is open for choice

    I'd prefer these which are bold

    Boots:waterwalk (life+dex),sandstrom (fhr,vita,str)
    Gloves:magefist (fcr+fire sk),frostburn (extra mana)
    Ring1:raven,angelic for high def chars
    Ring2:soj,angelic for high def chars
    Amulet:metalgrid, angelic for high def chars
    Helm:giant skull (2 sox, lot of str,knockback),andy (2 sk,ias, psn res,str),guillaume (fhr,cb,dl),3 fire sk 20 fcr 2 sox circlet
    Belt:arach

    The socketing in helm u would do:when u have only on the helm fhr then socket it with ias jewel, when u have only on the helm ias then socket it with shael rune

    In PvP u always need 60 fhr breakpoint, against smiter, windie, baba u need 86 fhr breakpoint too!Of this gear u average have 20-70 fhr (20 with shaeled andy,70 with shaeled guillaume+sands), and u can pump it with charms (5 fhr sc/smtgh or sks with 12 fhr)
    With fcr breaks u average have 20-60 fcr (breaks are 20,37,63).20 fcr with arach, 60 with circlet+arach+magefist.

    Iventory
    anni, torch, 9x fire sks (with fhr/life),sc's with fhr/mana,life/mana

    Prebuff

    3 light amu
    3 light circlet
    3 es ormus
    9 es memory
    2 soj or bk
    arach

    Skills

    Max:
    enchant
    fire mastery
    warmth
    telekinesis

    1 pt into:
    pre req
    and thunderstorm

    Rest into es

    U can ask, why i dont use res charms /items.Because i use es!U will have a lot of mana, near 95 (or 95) es.

    That was the mini-guide i n commentars:rolleyes:

    you didnt mention using tele and/or the ratio of effectivity btw using tele/FCR or straight attack rating in your belt/ring/ammy/glove slots. I've never made a melee sorc so i dont know such things, but i would picture myself trying to tele next to somebody then melee smack them.
    Or maybe use a beast axe instead of the hoj, and using bear form, i dunno if the ias and bear form with +str/OW/CB is better than the aura/-res from the hoj overall.


    on a side note, i've seen sorcs use dream helm/shield and max thunderstorm and lit mastery, and just tele around with rediculous FCR, they were fairly effective.

    Please bare with me about this, but the fire mastery also adds to holyfire aura damage, correct?

    I saw someone talk about a Dual-Dragon Sorc and figured we'd be talking about the Hydras.

    In my opinion, the ONLY way to make a Dual-Dragon Sorc would be to max Fire Bolt, Fireball, and Fire Mastery, and equip a Passion Phase Blade. After that, you run around Zealing until the Hydras trigger. With some decent speed, you can trigger a Hydra every second, which is twice as fast as you can cast them.

    Your way might be more efficient, but I promise you that my way is more fun.:grin:

    if you are going to use all fire auras, id say just make a pally. my advice-

    dream shield
    dream helm
    dragon armor
    passion pb/ hoj pb

    max lite mastery/fire mastery/es

    2 corrections on the gear:

    dragon does not offer damaged reduced by 7%, but damaged reduced by 7
    -this is a huge difference

    dragon in shield does not offer 5%mana, but 50mana added
    -not such a big difference on most builds

    No experience with such a sorc build, but I built a dreamerdin and he is a lot of fun. I feel pala builds are more suited due to them having natural access to zeal + conviction aura for a more rounded build. (not the crazy dmg numbers in your char screen though!)
