    What Kind of Beast for Melee Sorc

    I'm making a melee sorc, can't decide which type of beast to use: Zerker or Caddy? I'm thinking caddy for the speed.
    Does the zerker have a long range?

    Also, I have a 5os zerker not the caddy

    By "Melee" do you mean an Enchantress? If you are, you'd be better off with a Kingslayer runeword Wep.

    Kingslayer
    +30% Increased Attack Speed
    +230-270% Enhanced Damage (varies)
    -25% Target Defense
    20% Bonus To Attack Rating
    33% Chance of Crushing Blow
    50% Chance of Open Wounds
    +1 To Vengeance
    Prevent Monster Heal
    +10 To Strength
    40% Extra Gold From Monsters

    Oh you meant a Bear ES sorc... Hmm...

    Well I suggested Kingslayer because +1 Vengeance becomes INSANE with a maxed out Enchant because it gives +% all Elemental Dam... %... %...%!!!!

    If you want to go Bear, then you NEED ES to fully master the ways of the Bear. I heard ES Bears with 6x Shael Sup PB doing OK in duels... Only dueled couple in my life because they're pretty rare...

    Good luck in your sorc. :thumbsup:

    like if you make a es bear sorc, dont you max chant and fire mastery and what not, so wouldnt it be better to have like a dragon helm and shield to boost your fire damage cuase from what i have heard that your firemastery increases you holy fire damage which increse your melee damage, but i dont know i might make on just for the hell of it and try it out

    lvl 30 holy fire + 300% fire damage = 6k damage or something thats what a guy told me

    use beast to go bear form, then get a 90 ias/mod phase blade on your attacking switch to hit 5 fpa (cap for a sorc bear). enchant+dual dreams=whole lot of damage. I wouldn't worry about block, but 95% eshield, nice mana, mega ar, at least 86 fhr, and good speed can do well in melee.

    Bah, you wusses with your sheilds... Sorcs just aren't meant to use 1 handed weapons. They're terrible with them. Use a Champion Axe!

    You can hit the 4 Frame attack in Bear /w a 108 IAS PB and 5 Frame attack is 82 IAS in a PB. Leave two GC spaces in your inventory, BO and BC, swap out for Beast, Morph, when BO and BC run out or you need to switch to Tele, put the CtA back in. <--Ability to achieve and maintain 6,100 HP when my Sorc will be done.

    I am sorry, but you cannot hit 4 fpa with a sorc in bear form. it requires 121 ias on a phase, so not possible. the breakpoints for weapons vary from class to class in wereform. 86 ias is required for a sorc to hit 5 fpa, so keep that in mind. maxed enchant and dual gelics should push you to 20k ish ar. as far as tk goes, I am guessing you need 20 points in tk and enough points in es to hit level 40 after skills buff. I don't know how many that would be, but thats the guess.
