Spirit vs Hoto on 105 FCR ES Max block fire Sorc Ok, first off a 35 FCR spirit sword + viper + mage + arach gives 105 FCR. Spirit loses a skill but the massive 55 FHR + 20 from treks + one burning grand charm of balance = 87 FHR. That means the sockets I have from viper and shako can be faceted instead of shael'ed, which more than makes up for the lack of a skill. The problem, I think, is resists. My fire sorc is more of a budget type of character, without the godly gears (I tend to buy the lower end stuff to save money). Using the hoto, I have 30 + Mara's (20) + vipermagi (34) + Anni + Torch (20) = Roughly 0 resistance in hell. Using a spirit sword, I end up with -30 resistance in hell. I guess that would be okay with a 95 ES, but mine happens to be 79%. So would that be a problem in pvp?
