    What will you do when you run into LIs? I just created tri-elemental sorc because I had such a difficult time dealing with certain immunes. I really don't like to run from a monster so I had no choice. Another Problem with this set up is that unlike Cold, lightning mastery only raises the damage and does not lower the resist. IMO, against certain opponents like Hammerdin with GA and Thunder God.. you are a corpse waiting to happen.

    unless he's dueling in leagues, he can just go standard bm rules and have a wand with lower resistance charges on switch, and/or use light facets.

    Just one question, how high is your life? I see you have need for a lot of resistance charms, so there's no room for Vita charms and such.

    Well the obvious part is getting more lightning charms to get 32k damage. Swap the eschuta's for heart of the oak and drop some resistance charms, youll end up with a buttload more life. Your idea seems right though. It's a cool build, you can search for my guide on this forum.

    Lightning is very hard to absorb, as hard as fire ball or blizzard even.

    Other than my above suggestion it's mostly stuff that's hard to afford (yes HoTo is there too, but a little easier relatively), namely sojs, call to arms, chains of honor. Lightning skillers (with life, fhr).
