    Tal's Meph MF Blizz Sorceress

    I'm making a sorceress to run Hell Mephisto for the quest drops (supposedly better than baal, if its not I can always respec)

    Blizzard is my choice of attack. This build is mostly for fun because I want to use Tal's for the Display Aura. Heres what I'm thinking for gear (Gotta get decently high MF)

    Helm: Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest (Ptopaz) +24% MF
    Amulet: Tal Rasha's Adjudication
    Rings: Magic Fortuitous Rings of Fortune (Best MF rings) +70% MF
    Body Armor: Tal Rasha's Guardianship (PTopaz) +112% MF
    Gloves: Chance Guards +30% MF
    Belt: Perfect Tal Rasha's Fine-Spun Cloth +15% MF
    Boots: War Travelers +40%
    Weapon: Tal Rasha's Lidless Eye (Ist) +25% MF
    Shield: "Rhyme" / "Splendor" / Ist'd Stormshield? +25% MF
    Inventory: Sorc Torch, Anni, Gheeds, 20x 4-7% mf Smallcharms +140% MF

    Set Bonus: 65%

    Total MF: 546%

    Skills
    20 Ice bolt
    20 Ice Blast
    20 Glacial Spike (primary singel target attack)
    20 Blizzard (main, high damage attack)
    XX Cold Mastery (All Extras here)
    1 Teleport
    1 Warmth
    1 (second cold armor)
    I have an orb with Energy Shield

    Any improvements I can make? Should I just abandon Mephisto magic finding and make this Sorc something else? I don't know what to do for a Mercenary.

    Thanks!

    Well, since you're going with Full Tals you could take advantage of the masteries provided and spend some points into a backup skill like Firewall?

    Well I'd disagree with the drops - Baal and Co. can drop up to TC87 which means anything that isn't a special drop (ie anni) is basically possible. Meph maxes at TC78. It isn't worth the hassle to get a quest drop each game, because you're still lookin to kill him over and over just the same, but he's still faster than a baal run.

    The extra mf isn't worth going below 105 fcr.

    Hmm... Even the quest drop isn't T87? Guess I'll see how it goes. Could always make it a meteorb or something later for all game MF.

    I'll replace the Chance Guards with Magefist, would that cover fcr?

    As far as FCR goes, here's what you're looking at:

    Full Tal's Set will give you 50% FCR. The two breakpoints you want to look at are 63% and 105%. Personally, 63% is tolerable, but 105% feels a lot better and I haven't gone back to 63 after using 105. The most common set up to hit 105 with Full Tal's is to use Magefists (20%) and a Spirit Monarch (35%) for 105% even. If you just want the 63 breakpoint, you could use a Lidless Wall (20% fcr) or a Spirit Shield, or use any other shield if you have magefists equipped.

    Personally, I think that you'll want to sacrifice the small bit of MF to hit 105% fcr; it'll make your runs go faster and with a spirit shield your attacks should be slightly more powerful.
