    Question about my first nice light mf sorc.

    So, i just decided to ditch PvP :D
    And build (actually rebuild) a light mf sorc.

    I have the following gear gathered.

    Shako 141 1 socket
    Mara 25
    Spirit 32
    Hoto 30
    Arach
    2 nagels 30 (could get a soj if needed)
    War travellers
    Chancies (better options ?)

    CTA 4 and spirit on switch

    Merc:

    Andy 1 socket hight str high ll (cant remember atm)
    ETH forti dusk
    ETH CV Infinity

    I still need skillers and torch. I can not afford life skillers, so ill have to go with plain ones, maybe with dex or smth.

    I need the following info.

    1) Which is the most up to date guide ?
    2) What should i change in gear, if needed ?
    3) And, if i cant afford lifers does it make any change in stat point distribution ?

    THANX IN ADVANCE !

    1.This is the only light sorc Guide I know about.
    2. I think you should wear Mage Fist/Trangs instead of Chancies. Get a CoH for Armor or a nice up'd Viper. Make sure to get a Torch. and I might dump 1 Nagel for a Soj.
    3. No not really.

    Read the guide and ask more questions after you are done.

    Why are you trying to equip a light sorc with mf - it does not make sense.

    Re: Question about my first nice light mf sorc.

    well most lightning sorcs will look something like this..
    eschuta or hoto
    chains of honor or light ormus or vpermagi
    spirit monarch
    arach
    magies
    trekkies
    griffons if u can afford or shako or light sorc circlet
    maras or tals ammy or 3 light ammy
    2 sojs or some nice rare resist fcr rings etc etc
    torch
    anni
    maybe some lightning skillers
    so basically not a lot of room for a lot of magic find in there. lightning sorcs are pretty dependant on certain gear to maximize their killing speed and efficiency.

    Re: Question about my first nice light mf sorc.

    I am after runes and charms mainly and that 300mf is kind of hard to get for lightning sorc anyway. I mean its easy to over 600, but then its max 4-playes games. I have 25x 7mf charms in mules , but I dont use them with light sorc.
    Currently using only
    Infy 30mf
    +3L+31mf amu (tal, mara29,+3+10fcr in stash)
    Shako (-5facet) 50mf
    Gheed 40mf so only 151mf at the moment.

    Merc has tal armor(ias jool) and shako(Ptopaz) and eth Reapers Toll, so some
    mf boost from there, but resist and damage reduced are main purpose to choose those.

    My lighting sorc for mf does only 17k damg and she can solo 8 players runs fine. Also has around 350 mf. My merc is carrying the infinty

    She is wearing
    Tals Armor-p topazed
    Tals Ammy
    Tals Belt
    Occy-isted
    Shako-p topazed
    Wartraves- 38mf
    Some random mf gloves
    Lidless-waiting for ladder switch to make my own spirit
    One nagel ring and a 10% fcr ring
    A couple of mf sc's and 0 skillers

    Re: Question about my first nice light mf sorc.

    Thanx for answers. well...my last mf chars had close to 400 mf...killing speed...pretty ok still... but as i have the gear i wrote ill not change it and probably will try to go for max destruction power.
    after all...ill be able to make gear changes for more mf quite easy.

    weird
    that guide doesnt seem to include hoto
    im confused ... whether to go Energy Shield way or the other way
    what would u suggest for an mfer ??

    Re: Question about my first nice light mf sorc.

    The Guide was written before Hoto I think. But it doesn't matter just use a Hoto.

    I wouldn't even put a point in ES unless you plan on going all out with it. Just max all those lightning synergies.

    You still haven't said what Armor you will be wearing, what breakpoint you are trying to achieve.

    Also I personally would wear treks or waterwalks over wartravs but that is just me.

    Re: Question about my first nice light mf sorc.

    Well I would suggest that you aim to reach 117% which is the cast breakpoint for Lightning.

    You can wear a Coh but you need Fcr from other things then.
    Hoto 40
    Spirit 35
    Fists/Trangs 20
    Arachs 20

    So it looks like you will still need 2% more fcr from another piece of equipment. a Rare ring would work or a nice Sorc Caster ammy would be a decent choice also.

    Re: Question about my first nice light mf sorc.

    ^^ I agree with ya.

    For us non-super-rich players, the Light-MF socr is great. Just make sure you get 117fcr.

    To get to 117fcr with you got so far:
    Spirit 32
    Hoto 40
    Arach 20
    Total = 92

    If you can afford it, I would add:
    CoH armor
    Trangs Gloves 20fcr (replace chance)
    1x fcr ring 10fcr (replace 1x nagel)

    This gives you 122fcr.

    You'll also have pretty good resists with this setup Coh + Hoto + Spirit + etc.

    Your merc gear is fine.
