Hi so i started playing median xl again yesterday and i m wondering is there any rainbow staff sorc build and is it worth it ?
Sorc should be good for Rainbow Storm build.
I played Rainbow Druid and it was pretty strong and had plenty of mf.
I didn't like how itemization was limited due to how the skill works.
There are very few items that fit well with the build, most of the items you will find even if they are caster focused might not be useful because energy, spell focus aren't helpful and poison spell damage also hurts.
Just remember which stats work and which don't on Rainbow Storm.
Remember that you can't mo Staff of Herding.
Remember that Staff of Herding has stat range. ( So you need to continually gather ingredients for the recipe to craft better staff of herding )
Remember that level is important for the skill damage because of the stat per level from the item.
Staff of Herding
Staff of Herding
Required Level: 33
Item Level: 1
+1 to All Skills per 2 Socketed Rainbow Stones
10% Magic Find per Socketed Rainbow Stone
20% Movement Speed
(0.375 to 0.5)% to Fire Spell Damage (Based on Character Level)
(0.375 to 0.5)% to Lightning Spell Damage (Based on Character Level)
(0.375 to 0.5)% to Cold Spell Damage (Based on Character Level)
+3 to Rainbow Storm
+2 Life Regenerated per Second (Based on Character Level)
+(4.5 to 5.5) to Life (Based on Character Level)
+(3.75 to 4.25) to Mana (Based on Character Level)
Physical Resist 10%
Keep in mind that Bonus Spell Damage ( All Elements ) has "equal" effect to having two of the three trinity element bonus spell damage, because increasing poison spell damage reduces skill damage, so you end up trading one for one from the four elements you boosted.
So one item that boosts fire and cold spell damage by 20% might be better than one that boosts 15% all spell damage. Because the 15% from poison would reduce 15% from the 45% you receive from fire/cold/lightning, so you end up with "40%" vs "30%" bonus spell damage for Rainbow Storm.
Charms that give +x to all skills are really important.
Max Elemental Resist can be a problem because you insert tons of Rainbow Stones on the staff and you can't use shields too.
