    What to socket my Tal Fbal sockets with for PvP?

    I was wondering what would be best socket with. I got 3 sockets that needs to be filled. Since my tal orb offers -15 fire res, If I socket the 3 sockets with 5/5 facets, I could lower the fire res of my opponents with 30.
    But I don't really know if it's actually worth it.....

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Oh I forgot to mention I already hit 86 fhr bp. So sockets shouldn't be with fhr, I still don't know if socketing fire facets in the gear, will make much of a difference.

    I think the ber's are a pretty good idea... might be enough to help escape a desynching charger alive. I have been testing a pre-buff with fade on my infinity-sorc, and it seems to help against chargers... I use "seems" loosely, since It's hard to say for sure. But, a little dr can go a long way right?

    I assume your gear is tals/35fcr spirit/magefist/2xsoj/sandstorm treks? So, facet the orb and ber the armor/hat? Of course, an additional -10 resist could help against opponents with absorb? You fair ok with your damage now?

    Maybe just duel a while without filling the sockets to determine whats lacking?

    Facets for pvp. Unless you are short on resists then go with Ums.

    Facets are pretty useless IMO.

    +% Dmg only applies to fire mastery as we all know and one hotspur will easily negate all -%Fire resist. I'll take bers/ums/etc.

    I have figured out if I socket my tal armor and mask with shaels, I can hit 142 fhr bp = 6 frames hit recovery sounds sexy.

    Seems like a good idea actually, 142 fhr is great to have. Full tal sorc ftw :laugh: I bet it will be fun in public games, fire skillers with life would help too...

    Well I have to rebuild my beauty, since she has dex for block and str enough to equip Forti sacred. My friend started this sorc a long time ago, I just wanted to do something funny, then I equipped her with full tals, 2 x sojs and a spirit 35 fcr.

    My remake would be with 20k fb and 16 pt. telekinese or so, have to experiment a little.

    I find Tal Sorcs to be my logical fireballer, since my priorities are my Hammer and Barb > rest. Further Hotspurs > sorcs, so there's no reason getting a "godly" fireballer when a Griswold pala with hotspurs could dismember me.

    If you're going with ES, I don't see the point of having high FHR. Hence no need for shaels.
