    RE: Dual Dream Melee Sorc

    So I've made the decision to build a dual-dream melee sorc. I've read through all the guides, and they've been extremely helpful, but rather conflicting. Right now my goal is to make a dual-dream/enchant/ES sorc. Skills as follows

    20 Lightning Mastery
    20 Telekinesis
    20 Enchant
    20 Fire Mastery
    10-15 Energy Shield
    everything else in warmth

    What i'm wondering is what is the ideal gear setup for this build? I'm trying to keep the str to a minimum to maximize mana. I've heard a lot of talk about 4Eth2Shael or 4-6Shael Phase Blades, but also that a kingslayer or a passion are the best choices. If anyone has made a build like this and has some wisdom to share, I'd appreciate it.

    id say try, rather than melee, use a widowmaker bow for guided shot with the same build

    and max out warmth before telekinesis because it works with both enchant and nrg shield

    i don't think you should max out warmth before telekinesis, otherwise, all thats going to happen is that your energy shield will become a supermassive blackhole for all your mana

    They use ES - which even fully synergised still needs a healthy mana pool.

    I would suggest shopping for a +3 es gnarled staff in normal to make memory runeword, the +9 to es will help greatly.

    Iirc, you want to aim to cast your es at lv 40. Also resists are less important than damage reduced by, and magical damage reduced by. The gladiator's bane is a popular ES sorc armour for eg. due to those mods.

    I had made a dual dreamer, using Guardian Angel to help me achieve max blocking with my dream monarch.

    Was very fun and everything died in a couple of wacks from zeal (passion phaseblade).

    I regret not finding a decent staff to make memory in, as I think a fully buffed ES would be awesome. But with ES it's kinda all or nothing, you need to build up slightly differently than usual.

    is a very good read on the ES sorc.
