    Rate my Chain Light Pit Runner

    I've spent a lot of time building this up...let me know what you think - her resists are awful low - a Cold Enchanted explosion leaves me with very little life. Total FCR is 110 - too much? Too little?

    Griffon's Eye 19/11 (25 FCR)
    Eschuta's 3/16/19 (45 FCR)
    Ormus Chain Light with RBF (-3, 15% Light Dam) (20FCR)
    Frostburn
    Arach's (20 FCR)
    Silkweave
    +3 Light Ammy
    10 FCR/7 Energy/89 mana/ 11LR Ring
    10 Fcr/2 energy/LR 11/ FR 28 Ring
    28% FCR Spirit
    3 Light GC's

    Merc Duress/Andy's/Infinity (How did I live without Infinity before???)

    i had a pure lightning sorc, 20 lightning and 20 cl and synergies and all, and it worked real nice for pits, and i didnt even had infinity. u could probably better wear some more mf, cuz with infinity u can kill quickly enough. I also have 4 lightskillers for trade on Eu L if u need, but if ur chain dmg is 9-10k its probably enough, gl

    That's a shame - i am on East. But my CL is only 4k...with infinity it kills insanely fast...but yeah - thinking more MF would help...guess War Travs would be good there...

    also, try to get that 35 spirit. it would bring you to 117fcr which is bp for light and chain lightning.

    I know faster cast is huge for lightning due to the low min. damage but wouldn't equipping an infinity on the sorceress give you huge -lightning resistance? If not that, how about Crescent Moon? Also, you can always take the no MF approach and search for socketables. The right ones trade for way higher than most uniques and set items.

    Also, is +damage multiplicative or additive with lightning mastery? If additive, +skills might be a better approach than Ormus.

    Upon recounting, looks like I actually have 158% FCR right now. Is there another BP?

    Pherdnut - Yes - the infinity does HUGE amounts more dam (through less resist) and I tear through hell pits - even took on hell Baal! I've been using this char to get a lot of whites and greys (Big tradelist on USEast plug! :p))

    Just wondering what I am missing...

    :( Make us NL folks look bad... I.. want... Infinity... Spirit... ... ... MOMMY! :(

    My lightning sorc breaks the 127% FCR L/CL bp with 38K Lightning! :clap:

    What you could do is lose the 1x FCR ring and equip 1x SoJ, and then wear Viper Mage for 120% FCR. You'd lose quite a dam from Ormus, but you'd be breaking the next bp which is a HUGE leap for you but a SMALL leap for the rest of the D2 world, + the resi is still all nice right? :thumbsup:

    - Dennis

    Wait WTH?? All your stats are messed up... and they end up more than 110... Huh? Scratch the above comment I'm confused... Wha... How... Where am I?

    lol - well, after playing this game, and watching the ebb and flow of the trades (that's how I managed to get an Infinity) I have noticed that the high trades are all white and grey items. The new runewords have all but eliminated the Gold, Blue and Yellow items. So far in the pits I have found an Ist, several Um, Sup Eth Armours, +3 Skills helms that bring in 3+ ist, and all the things that people want! Runes, Jewels and Charms don't need MF!

    That being said, I have a 947MF (Just counted her stats) and if you add the merc - well over 1000MF for running the pits (very slowly -more like crawling) or doing some Meph/Andy runs.

    So going back to the original question - I guess I can drop the Ormus and put on a nice Vipermagi - see if the FCR does make a diff...thanks!

    Oh - and the SOJ - I would LOVE, but only have few higher runes left, and no one wants to sell me a SOJ for Ist 3UM... :(

    Kinda going OT here, but yeah - the last few SOJs went for much higher than one Ist UM - more like 2.5 Ist... :(
