if you use three items (dementia , snowsquall , lifecrusher ) . I sure you will miss alot of alot % and flat dex .With sorc melee ied . We don't need more pierce . Because we have alot from weapon + body armor + svalin .So try to find all item give % and flat dex is good .
Hellfire rw is bad right now . Because it's got nerf (no longer scales from Vitality or Energy ) . So we will lost 5-10% ied ( i guess ) . Dev said that nerf just focus on Barbar and pal . But but but sorc ied got nerf too .

How are you possibly losing 10 IED from the hellfire nerf? You've really got 2500 vita+energy? 5-6 is realistic, and not make or break on an item that's already a damage loss compared to Lachdanan's but that you'd choose for the Life Spark and phys resist.

You may also notice Snowsquall and Lifecrusher give exactly the stats you're asking for. Maybe you choose
