the melee sorceress is without doubt very powerful, but i am still having trouble farming dunc and toraja easily, maybe my assumption that i should be very hard to kill is wrong but dunc doesn't feel like efficient farm, and i don't particularly feel like i can stack mf in my sockets without losing too much (running 70 mf with your "general" endgame setup with the full set, hit ias/fhr breakpoints), i could be wrong though.
should this build be able to handle fauzt / dunc / tojara with ease? tojara mobs are just hard to kill because of melee status, and dunc just feels like a nightmare as the mobs still do a ton of dmg through the DR, not to mention the barrels.
also im on single player. i would like to ideally farm in /player 3 / 5 / 7, i have most of the blue difficulty ubers, but every red zone i step in feels too hard, and i feel like im at a wall trying to get the Auhe rune so i can make the Nero belt.
what / how would you recommend i progress from here, to clearing red difficulty ubers / farming for my SSU / SSSU endgames?
First, I'd recommend following the End-Game progression as I laid it out. I tried to design it so each task you complete will help your chances of completing the next task.
Second, I'm curious why you're attempting to farm Dunc. Unless you have all the recommended gear+SoL+Charm+Trophies up to and including End-Game Part II (pre Corrupted Abbey), you shouldn't even be setting foot in there, let alone trying to farm it.
By the time you get to the Corrupted Abbey for the first time, you're only there to get the Charm, nothing more. You can come back later after you've eaten more SoL and try to farm Dunc + the first area of the Abbey if you want. I don't recommend going beyond that, though. Since too many of your skills share a CD timer, and you don't have timerless telport, it's not very efficient.
As for Toraja, you shouldn't have a problem surviving if you keep Celebrants debuffed with Force Blast. It's just a supremely annoying area. The biggest headache with farming it is setting up the field. Just kill enough of the Celebrants so you can farm Morlu without them interfering. After that, it's just hours of boring grinding until an Auhe Rune drops.
There's no reason to ever farm Fauzt, imo.
