Hi,

I got full Elemental Set now but my damage still sucks badly:
Thunderstone: 936-1204
Forked Lightning: 1634-2451

Plus I am running out of Mana super quickly. I am currently "farming" TA since my elementals are good in blocking arrow from the amazons, but I do like 10 casts then TP to town, talking to NPC for getting refreshed Mana, back in - repeat. You can imagine how long one run takes.
And taking down first Priestess who is only Fire immune takes ages. Gear sockets are filled with Ort runes and some pgems for resistances. Not eaten much sigs ofc, because farming is a pain.

What can I approve to quickly gain more damage?

Put 1 point into Mana Sweep, even at 5 seconds cd it's extremely solid. I've never had mana problems as a sorc.

The lightning set is nice, but as far as damage goes it has very low spell damage and pierce, focus on that. Craft a belt with ornate shrines, they can roll up to -26 enemy lightning resist. Try to get these mods on amulets and rings too. If you have trouble farming TA try somewhere easier like K3K or even Nihlathak runs for more signets. (you probably need this because usually at this point in the game you need to put points into str and dex for sacred item requirements -> not enough pts in energy -> lower overall spell damage)

Do what HohoHaha said and try to get some Lightning pierce.

If you're just doing TA for sigs, try farming the Torajan Jungles on Terror instead. It has a sig drop bias and SoL drop there even on Terror.

Damage rework. All damage and monster life has been reduced to 1/8 of what it used to be a while ago , after this guide was done. Also , Thunderstone was nerfed last past , it released far fewer charged bolts when the stone landed. Its been slightly buffed this patch tho but im not sure if it made a significant difference. Last patch the nerf was substantial enough to make it virtually not worth it anymore even as a boss killer. Try using Forked Lightning instead. Its a mana hogger but it clears fast , bosses and mobs alike. Only downside is you have to be at least at mid range while Tstone you could spam it all the way in the back.

Hello :D

I recently started playing MXL and tried this build, now I managed to get my hand on a yul rune and I am wondering.. Does it matter if I make this runeword in a sacred battlestaff compared to a T6 battlestaff as a caster :D?

Thank you !

Edit: Posted this in the short question thread, where it probably should be posted! My bad, forumpleb :-]

Make the runeword on T6 War Staff, max sockets and lowest requirements.

So I recently got into Median, I never touched it years ago.

It's come to my attention that Volrath Challenge is no longer available?

Are there any early game alternatives? Or is it still in the game. I'm playing the most recent 1.1 build of Median XL, not Ultimative.
I'm enjoying corpse ice explosions. :twisted: :twisted:
