    Your dream Enchantress setup

    I'm debating what my dream setup would be (mainly so I can start to get an idea about prices and what to keep an eye out for).

    I was kinda eyeing Chains of Honor, Verdungo's, BK ring and Azurewrath. Trying to max resists while keeping at least some +skills. Are Enchantresses using Stormshield at all (with +str gear and/or -req's)??

    My ideas are sometimes wandering into the strange so I wanted to see what others were dreaming of for gear.

    Well, my enchantress is sitting in hell a1, lvl 70. She's got rather good gear, but this is what i'd dream of:

    Um'd Gaze
    Um'd Shaft
    mara's
    razortail
    Bul kathos wedding band
    raven frost
    20 ias/3ll/some cb crafted gloves
    ik boots

    weapons:

    demon machine w/fire damage jool or facet, or you could go hellmouth and stick a shael here

    switch:
    demon limb w/fire facet
    stormshield w/um or facet

    of course, you'd have different stuff for prebuffing, but yeah.

    Kind of funny, this is my first Enchantress to live long enough to be usefull, Hired_Fire now 39, (hint working on new chars in hard core maybe not be that smart), and I haven't even thought that much about a weapon, just figured to pair up with a group, zap them and stand back and leech. Something fast with exploding arrow sounds good, but what is your gear for BUFFING, since that is my first purpose pair up, zap, leech.

    Buff gear for level 50


    Buff gear for level 70+


    Cheapo for my poor hardcore.

    Picked up Andy's mask. I might end up using it for my Enchantress. Huge boost to str (29 on mine so I can wear a stormshield), 20% IAS and life leech. I'd have to make up the -30% FR but it could work. Debating whether or not to try for something else like a Crown of Ages w/ 2 sockets. It would certainly boost my resists.

    I've got a Lightsabre and Demon Machine put aside for her once she levels enough. Probably going to plow through NM tonight with a friend.

    I'm starting a new enchantress and this is would be my ultimate gear

    Crown of Ages
    Duriels Shell (love this armor)
    Highlord's
    Dracul's Grasp
    Wisp Projector
    Raven Frost
    Tgod's / String
    Beast Runeword in a sceptre
    Moser's 2 pdiamonds
    Demon Machine on switch

    I've been thinking this set up would be good for resists, leach and most importantly the entertainment value of being able to shift into bear mode

    Thanks guys.... for the most part, I think I've got my dream build down...

    I do have one dumb question... would socketing a -15% req jewel into a weapon affect other things such as armor/helm/shield,etc? Or just what I socket it in? Just want to double-check. I was assuming so since people loved to load up on 40/15 gems in just about everything.

    Weapon: Azurewrath / Demon Machine (have the DM.. it's niiiice)
    Armor: Chains of Honor
    Shield: Stormshield
    Helm: Crown of Ages (hoping 2 sockets, resists can be less as I'll um x2... low dr is fine, too)
    Belt: Verdungo's
    Boots: Gore riders... maybe War Trav's for the +str (see below)
    Gloves: Not picky. Got some nice 20% IAS, 3% ML gloves with two really good resists so I may not want to part with them.
    Rings: BK Ring, Ravenfrost (Dwarf & Wisp as needed for absorb)
    Ammy: Mara's or +3 Fire / res-all

    Of course, the str req on the Crown is pretty damn high which is where my -15% req comes up. The str boost from some items would allow me to wear SS which would boost str enough to wear the crown at -15%. That's so long as I'm dealing with -15% str req for both SS and CoA. If not, time to pump str and find some more life charms :p

    Damn. I wasn't sure so I've at least planned for that. Just need to add a few more items to my dream list in order to max resists on this build ;)

    Questions.. Comments...


    What I want to know where you are getting those lightning dmg charms and what you are trading for them.

    FYI I have a level 86 Melee sorc named EnchantedTouch on us east non ladder.

    I have been collecting 1-24 dmg light charms because that's all I can find/trade for from ppl. They are cheap and if you can find 20 of them vs 3x1-99 or 6x1-44 then you are still better off on dmg.
    20x1-24 = 20-480 Now add in say, level 15 Lightning mastery which is +218% dmg and you get. 63-1526 lightning dmg. This, along with good crusing blow % will help alot on those pesky fire immunes.

    For all you folks planning on using passion phase blades keep in mind that you will want to try and get some more IAS too to make zeal more useful. I currently use crafted gloves with 3% life leech, 9% crushing blow, +14 Str, 20% IAS and +14 to life. And I use highlords ammulet which gives 20% IAS and good deadly strike based on char level. I notice a big difference from adding these 2 20% items to my setup. I can do hell cows melee with this sorc. Ofcourse I stay away from packs of cows that are larger than 7 or so. A high level BO from a barb is your best friend.

    Fable13,
    Please use proper case. Its annoying as hell to read your posts.

    There is no difference between 40% OIAS and 0% OIAS. At 47% OIAS you hit 4 frames, as opposed to 5 frames - not significant enough to sacrifice equipment IMO.

    Looks like I need to go on a quest for +15res / +15% IAS and -15% req / +15 res jewels.

    Those don't seem to be too common, either (they appear possible form the suffix/prefix list).

    Maybe it's also time to start collecting up pgems ;)

    the first attack in the zeal probably goes down fairly significantly, however, and a 4 frame zeal is infinitely better than a 5.

    Oh there's definitly a difference... are you factoring in the 25% increase attack speed on the passion phase blade?
