    Titan Sorc Guide (END YOUR SANITY)

    Yes thats right the titan sorc. All of your dreams can be aquired with this build. Instead of dodging attacks take them like a ... well a .. WOMAN! Not only will you dominate the walks of life on the earth you will CRUSH. You will constantly chant 3 words while roaming the world of diablo. ME WILL CRUSH

    (warnings)
    1.Not a cookie cutter
    2.You probally will die (alot)
    3.To much fun to handle

    Lets get down with the fun shall we.
    Heres the basic Field of skills
    20 into warmth
    20 into enchant
    20 into fire mastery

    There is about 20 more points to put into this sorc before it becomes streneous to level in my opinion so you can use those however youd like. Get creative use the extra 20 to make your titan unique

    Stat points...

    LOL why the hell do you need to know this one??
    every level you should apply stats like this
    +5 str
    +0 vit
    +0 dex
    +0 egy

    Well that was easy. (warning) putting 1 point into anything else will make you a demi TITAN sorc we dont want that now do we ^_^

    Well now that we got the basic drable down lets discuss equipment.

    LOW LEVEL EQUIP

    Your probally wondering um alk what do we do at a low level. Well theres quite a few ways to become a goddess when your low.

    First off if you can try to get a hell forge hammer from the hell forge with a diffrent char and then putting it on your sorc it has no requirments and is very easy to get. Lots of damage too its a very good starting weapon.
    for untwinked players and people who just dont care. A nice 2 handed axe will do you may have to get around 3-5 levels to get the STR to start using the big axes and so on but in time youll have those big babies o_O.

    How Do I Beat the Game?!?! :yawn: (equipment for later levels at bottom)

    Using these axes linked with maxing STR should get you through normal act 1 quite easily there may be times when it gets sort of hard but if you max str it shouldnt be to hard to get a nice average defense.

    In act 2 you should adjust your equipment to the best weapons in that act at this point your str will have a nice bonus to your damage. If your twinking weapons with a good base or +damge per level are good as well.

    the rest of the acts should naturally come to you and be played as the other ones. Dont be afraid to use a shield at first to live and then later switch to your fav titan weapon. We all start somewhere right "_"

    You should find act bosses actually die rather fast. As will you too! So to counter this either have a nice rack of potions at hand or a nice bit of leech. Youll find that in normal leeching with massive damage can really help .


    Wow ALK normal was easy but what about the other ones!?!?

    Well this is where it gets fun. For you non twinkers it gets a bit hard but fun as well kinda wierd =P. First of all if you dont have a good weapon that youve xfered or found update your weapon with a more damaging one in nightmare. You might be around level 27-40 when you get to nightmare depending on how you did the rest of normal.

    At this point your STR will be pretty high so the weapons there will do you good. Also Defense is key to living just a bit longer so upgrade that armor as well. Youll find the act 1 monsters wont be to hard in nightmare untill you get around dark woods area.

    Overall andy shouldnt be hard as long as you get rid of her little minions first. Without them stunning you youll be able to hit alot more and knock her hp off.

    When in act 2 repeat the same thing you did in act 1. The only problem here is undead are annoying as crap and duriel has been beefed up beyond stupid . Suggested as much psn/cold resis as you can get in this act. Charms or even magical armor can usually cover this just try to get it around 40-50% psn resis because without it youll have trouble.

    During duriel hopefully enchant added to your str and your titan wapon will be able to dispose of him if not chug the potions and keep trying remember TPs mean infinite trys

    The other acts will pretty much be similar to normal other then resis will be terrible. So if you can get those up usually you wont have to much trouble.

    Act 5 minions wont be easy but if you leveled up correctly you should be around level 60? at this point your enchant will do loads. Not to mention you should have a good weapon by now if not try mfing for one better.

    Hey ALK you wont belive it I passed NIGHTMARE but OMG HELL!?!? o_O

    Yes hell the difficulty that makes us cry and cheer.

    I would suggest that only well equpied non twinkers enter this difficulty. Even with enchant some monsters will be difficult. Your resis will also fall into the crapper without nice gear. Still it is possible. With the conjunction of enchant and high damage if you have a decent weapon hell is doable. It may be hard but it is possible. I have gone to act 3 with my titan sorc but shes twinked im still working to get to act 4 but im pretty sure ill be able to do it. For non twinkers it should be a bit harder but YOU MUST BELIVE!


    ----ALKS SUGGESTED ITEMS FOR TWINKERS----
    Armor:
    A high defense armor that has some kind of life bonus does good. It can also be armor socketed with rubys that works too. This will keep your defense and life high wich should do what armor is supposed to do Keep you alive and ticking :evil: heres some suggestions might be.
    1.shafts ( DR and high defense with +60 hp very nice )
    2.najs ( +1 skills high defense and life very nice again )
    3.other ( mods with life)(gems/jewls )

    Weapon:
    A 2 handed weapon is suggested for the titan build but one hands are also acceptable but the shield you use probally wont be good with base dex. Even with item bonuses. some Suggestions might be.
    1.Rib Cracker/Tree stump/Wind hammer ( massive damage mauls )
    2.Hellslayer/bone hew( if you have good item dex ) ( massive damage axes )
    3.Other high damage mauls and 2 hand weapons ( massive damage whatevers )

    Shield:
    Up to you really I wouldnt use one but heres some ideas.
    1.Storm guild ( just a few good mods )
    2.high defense ones
    3.Plus to life ones

    Helmet:
    YAy these are fun and easy to find. Lots of helmets can make this category very variable heres just a few of my suggestions.
    1.vampire gaze ( DR/LEECH/high defense )
    2.Rock stopper ( DR/damage )
    3.hp/damage/High defense mod helms work too

    Booties:
    These are usually where youll get any run walk from other then charms. They can also give nice bonuses. Heres just a few I suggest.
    1.War travs ( nice damage here )
    2.Water walks ( dex and hp )
    3.Boots with average run walk and or Hp mods damage mods STR DEX mods are nice. Any of those mods work and are real nice if you have atleast 2 of them.

    Belts:
    heres another intresting category and a few more suggestions.
    1.Razor tail ( deffintely suggested high defense and +10 max damage )
    2.String of ears ( DR and other good mods )
    3.HP/high defense mods

    Gloves:
    Now we can start to either Increase attack speed nicely or just get more mods from our gloves. A few ideas are.
    1.Blood fists ( cheap high FHR HP Faster attack what more could you ask for? )
    2.Magnus gloves ( nice Faster attack )
    3.Attack speed/Hp/Hit recovery mods

    Rings:
    These are tottaly up to you but I have a few suggestions for rings to use.
    1.2 Angels ( LOTS AND LOTS OF AR go from 784 AR to 2800 easy also +40 hp )
    2.1 Raven 1 Dwarf ( fire and ice resis no freeze more hp and dex very good combos togeather. )
    3.Any mods that seem to help mainly AR would be nice.

    Amy:
    Once again a catergory for you to choose from with lots of choices heres a few I like.
    1.Highlords ( ya right but its nice )
    2.cats eye ( love the speed mods )
    3.Angelic amy ( +75 to life with the rings on = cool = yay )
    4.any good mod ones

    Hope I didnt miss anything

    Remember these are suggestions feel free to use anything that you find that is uber cool or just works ^_^.


    (((((((((DUELING))))))))))

    wow you really are as crazy as me ok fine ill tell you what I can ^)_(^

    Heres some basic guides nothing real special though.

    Sorces:

    Titans:hard to find them oh well

    Melee:bash thier heads in show them whos the real meleer around here.

    ICE:the key here is you can both probally kill eachother in one hit try to get the first hit on them if they have tons of hp and 75% block it may be quite hard to hit them though. I suggest only fighting ones that dont have max block then you have atleast chance to bash their heads in.

    Fire:Same as ice except if your in a pubby duel they may not be able to aim thier attacks this gives you a chance to get a hit off.

    Lighting:same as cold almost.



    Necros:these guys will probally give you some trouble

    Melee:bash thier heads in teach them your the master of melee.

    Psn:get any resis you can and reduction really helps.

    Bone:unless you can get a hit off your in trouble here =/. All I can say is try to hit them and hope for them to be stupid.

    Barbs:eww your worst enemys

    Titans:these are the original titans they wont lose to a mere titan sorc but if your built good and have uber items it just might be possible. One thing you can do is walk away so they run after you then hit them immediatly after thier Defense will be 0 on this hit.

    Concs:sigh try your best dont expect to win though.

    WW:If they use no shield it should be minory easy to kill them even during a WW. Other wise itll be alittle hard.

    Zons:these guys are versitial their builds change like crazy.

    Bows:minorly difficult just try to get a hit off hide behind stuff if you have to.

    Jab:these guys will tear you up before you can even hit them good luck =(

    Elemental:The lighting damage on these is just uncomparable high resis and absorb are your only hope but then they may start to jab you to death.

    Assns:These guys can be from Easy to imposible depending on how smart they are and thier build.

    Titans:yes there is titan assns. Do not let them releash a 3 charge on you I repeat do not you will get chunked like a piece of poop. Best to either kill them in one hit or run when they get 3 circles untill it disapears and continue to attack.

    Traps:If they mindblast you enough theres not much you can do =/

    Melee:these are pretty tough if they use block but usually have relatively low hp. If you can get past thier shields usually youll have a chance just pray you get that 25% chance. Also dont let them 3 strike you with TS.

    Druids:druids are usually underated well the melee ones anyways but these guys can be dangerous.

    Melee:if its a bear with a good build your probally dead. A wolf with a good build is possible but fat chance. Your best bet is to hope they dont use block so you can get those good hits off. The bad part is that druids have lots of hp in shape mode so one hits will occur less often.

    Elemental: Oh jee tornado=you=dead. Sorry guys havent found a way to beat these effectively yet.

    Summoners: Show these guys how well you pvm by slaughtering their minions.

    Paladin:I dont like these guys =P

    Charger:put on walk all the time if your running charge will always hit you. Try to go into corners if you have to to stop the knock back. sometimes chargers will have low hp so you can still get a chance.

    FOH:good luck without max light resis. They will tear you apart. Best bet is to hope for that 25% luck.

    Hammerdin:no comment

    Zealot:zealots will usually tear you apart but I find if you can make them run after you while you walk away sometimes you can turn the tables. Their hp is usually quite low so with enough damage you may be able to knock em.

    Well thats all for the guide so FAR! ENJOY YOUR EXCLUSIVE TITAN SORC AND HAVE THE JOY AND HAPPINESS OF BEING (cool) :buddies:

    This sounds very great, something I would really like. I have a Normal Barb Titan and it was probally the most fun I have ever had buuilding a character and lvling him. He is 84h lvl now and no sign of stopping yet.
    Anyhow this adds a whole new lvl to the idea. Love the work keep it up. I am gonna go make one right now I think.
    Peace :clap: :clap: :clap:

    You guys are crazy...but hey, Semi-Titan barbs were actually BvB duelers in the non-hacked part of 1.09.
    Once hexes came....
    Everyone was a titan, full vit, dexabarb at the same time. Did I mention that they wouldn't get hurt from elemental attacks?

    IK sorc

    I was thinking of trying a sorc with IK gear, minus the helm of course. I am aware that sorcs have CRAZY FAST swing speed with both two-handed mauls and polearms. I would try polearms for the coolness factor, but in the end mauls win out for crazy damage.

    Anyways, if I go IK.. that leaves me with helmet, ammy, and rings freed up.. Can anyone recommend some good equipment for this build?

    Speaking of build, I plan on going the Enchant route. So that's 60 pts. for maxed Enchant, Warmth, and Mastery.. plus I don't know how many pre-reqs.. plus a point in teleport and static. I don't know where I would put the rest of them. More static, probably, for the bigger range.

    Suggestions welcome!

    well if not more into static a few into ice armor would actually really help. I find while playing a titan sorc just a small amount of more defense and your alive for alot longer. for a helment vamp gaze and or peasents/shako would do nicely and ammys and rings could be the angel set for tons of AR or just a raven and another ring of choice with a highlords/cats eye or something else.

    That reminds me of another important consideration for this build: defiance or holy freeze merc?

    In my experience, holy freeze is better for ranged attackers - zons and sorcs. On the other hand, defiance is great for those who have a good base defense and are already going to be getting up close and personal alongside their merc. Buuuuut, holy freeze would be better at keeping you from getting swarmed, but that wouldn't be much of a problem because you have teleport and a merc. My bet would be with defiance.

    My Enchantress will use a Holy Freeze merc, for the simple reason that as a melee sorc, you do not have very fast attack speeds nor very fast block speeds nor very fast hit recovery and due to gear considerations your cast speed won't be too fast either. Which means you'll get block-locked if you get swarmed by quick attackers...defiance works somewhat to help there, but a boss pack with blessed aim will rip you to shreds. Holy Freeze is the better choice in my opinion (with the added benefit of a merc that also deals reasonable amounts of cold damage).
