Sorceress Septivarite

Been working on this for a while now, playing the chars, so it's time to post the plans...

SC Sorceress Septivarite

Theme: 7 different Sorceress builds.
Goal: Mat all Sorceresses.
End Game: 7 Matriarchs, level 90.
Gear: Interchangeable among the Sorceresses while building them, however, each Sorceress must posses her own set of gear at End Game.

The only one i might want to change is the Chain Lightning Sorc, BonnyRae, but i have to find a really good replacement first...

So, nothing to do for the next 6 months?

Good characters darlin'. Should be a real challenge....but alot of fun also. The Archmage is a blast, not real powerful, but fun to play. Mine has hydra instead of meteor though, yours may be stronger.

If you're looking for a replacement for a CL sorc, might I suggest a Blizzballer? My own is currently lvl 50 and sitting in NM Outer Cloister, having little difficulty. Skill set-up will look something like this:

20 Blizzard
15 Ice Blast
10 Cold Mastery
20 Meteor
20 Fireball
1 Fire Mastery
1 Static Field, Telekinesis, Teleport
1 Warmth
7 Pre-reqs
97 Total

You'd have both a timered and spam spell in two elements. Some prefer Glacial Spike (lesser damage, freezes group) over Ice Blast (greater damage, freezes individual) and some prefer Firebolt over Meteor. Milady's-Knight has a good guide for the original build in the Sorceress forum.

I'm thinking of replacing the Chain Lightning one by a "Vengeance Sorc", which means maxing all Masteries, plus some back up skill, preferably a fast one, while using a kick-ar$$ weapon ;)

Darkwell, darling, great to see you on here again *hugs*

Hi Sidhe! I'm a sorceress fan all the way. I'm working on an Archmage myself. Anyway, I have items I don't need that your characters might find useful and if you send me your email addy, I'll give them to you. Let me know. Good luck with your goal. I'm having a hard time just completing the game with one character!

ok then. max the masteries, then get frost nova and go melee with a vengeance axe. hows that one?

No offense, but using FO with an enchantress seems a bit like chickening out. I agree with Corax, a vengeance two handed axe (or some other source of big elemental damage) and points in masteries would make for a more awesome enchantress IMO.

Chain Lightning is actually a decent skill and pretty fun to use. My build is a bit different from yours, though.

Chain Lightning 20
Lightning 20
Lightning Mastery 20
Static 7+
Teleport 1
Warmth 1
Frozen Orb 20
Cold Mastery 1

(clvl87)

That gives me a pretty decent level of static field which is used to half-kill everything non-LI. Overall killing speed is much faster than with even another 20 points in a synergy and no static. (I had 7 in static when I reached hell)


If you're looking for some enchantress idea you might find this thread interesting: http://forums.diabloii.net/showthread.php?t=344445

No offense taken, i know it's chickening out... The 'problem' is that i've already started the Enchantress (lvl 58 now, in NM), even before i came up with the idea of making a Sorc Sept. That's kinda like cheating even: i used two Sorces that were already partly build... Anyway, i'm still revising the builds, and i can still start chars over, it's not like i'm very attached to the ones i have now (except for SaraLee). Ideas are always welcome.

Guess i can even make a double Septivarite, anyone know a name for that? There are so many possible builds... Both conventional and unconventional. Nightfish, i'll check out your shameless self-advertisement, and might keep the CL Sorc. Specially if i go with a double Sept; no need to cut builds out then. :) Darkwell, could you either post on the SPF or send me an email about your Bowasorc? Oh, and Corax, seems like the starting on Druids will have to wait for months and months yet, what with all the Sorces...

I looked over the builds i posted so far and noticed some things: first, the point distribution is including prereqs, second, the skill distribution is not the best distribution ever, third, after 4 years of playing, i'm still a noob... ;)

Sidhavirate maybe? :p Actually I'm not sure if it's a sept if it's not HC. But then again, you probably don't find septavirate in a dictionary in the first place.

Oooh, me likes the word Sidhavirate... Nothing better than an ego-boost at times. ;) And septivarite/septavirate can't be found in dictionaries... yeah, i checked, hehe... I always thought a Sept could be made on both HC and SC though, that it only stated that someone was making 7 chars more or less tied together by something...

NF can expect to be called upon then, someday soon... ;)

Far as I know it was butz who started this whole thing ages ago. IIRC a sept was a guardian of each class. At least my first sept is. My second sept is going to expand that to one ribcracker guardian per class but I'll count the initial ribby guardians I already have. See, you can make your own rules. ; )

Sure, go right ahead, if there's anything I like more than giving out D2 advice then it's... uh...? Cookies? Yeah, that's gotta be it.

I have a Pure Chain Lightning Sorc and it's a good Sorc.

In a enchantress a good thing is maxing LM and use some Lightning damage charms to extra damage and FI's.

X-Bow Enchantress is nice too and a good way to use this unique.

Demon Machine
Chu-Ko-Nu
Two-Hand Damage: 33-139 (86 Avg)
Required Level: 49
Required Strength: 80
Required Dexterity: 95
Base Weapon Speed: [-60]

+66 To Maximum Damage
Fires Explosive Arrows Or Bolts

Piercing Attack (66)
+321 Defense
+36 To Mana.

Ehm, right, ok... so it's going to be a Sidhavirate, as Nightfish suggested, consisting of 14 Sorces. I'll post the builds i want to make as soon as i have everything planned out and reviewed. ;)
 
gogo Sidhe! sorcs are 1337 arent they? make druids look as cool as a 13yr old fat spotty bnet hacker with glasses and a lazy eye.
however, i dont think your sept will feel complete without a wirts leg in there somewhere...:teeth:
