I am doing fine with my Neco/lvl94 in Nightmare but my wife.... is struggling hard I respected to this build and I am missing the gear obviously but ... I should be able to take normal mobs down so I must be missing something ...
* included her save file for review/hacking
feel free to fix it for me
* have not unlocked "Force Blast" because its not available (Hell ? )
* cheated to lvl137
* can't even walk outside act IV Nightmare without almost dying instantly ( most the gear is tier 4 crafted with Jewles/Runewards etc ..again not the best but .. )
* guide state max Max - Moonstrike (26) , Fusillade (24) , Baneblade (12) but not sure if thos are reall max because I have 49 skill points left over ...
So am I just missing the gear or skills ? it has to be one of the two ...I could work on getting the 'The Mysteries' stuff but ... her build is WAY worse now.. I can span one Familiar and 4-5 Blade Spirit. At this point after struggling shes basically given up
Simply hacking your character and giving it clvl 137 isn't gonna make it op. All those clvls, Skill Points, and Attribute Points won't mean a thing if you don't have the gear to utilize them. There are no shortcuts with a Melee Sorc. You gotta put in the work to succeed.
The way I'm reading this, you're in A4 Nightmare. You should be using full TUs by that point, with most or all of them at T3 (check the guide for gear recommendations). The TU gear listed will take you though Hell and Early-Game Dungeons+Rifts without much trouble. It also looks like you're missing the Sunstone of the Twin Seas charm from the Level Challenge. So I'd recommend getting that. However, since you're now clvl 137, it's gonna cost you 14 ACs to assemble it. And since you don't have your Sunstone, you're also missing out on the free Res for completing the Prison of Ice quest in Act 5 (i.e. rescuing Anya).
Aside from gear, your Res is terrible. Socket perfect Ambers, Bloodstones, Onyxes, and Turquoises into your gear to boost it. You should be Res-capped by this stage.
I'm not sure what you mean by spamming Familiar and Blade Spirits. Familiar is a one-time summon, and Blade Spirits are just there to distract enemies when you need them.
Force Blast is a reward skill. You gain access to it when you complete the Black Road quest in Hell.
Having extra Skill Points is normal. You'll acquire Charms in Hell from certain Dungeons that have the "+X to Max Skill Levels" mod. This will let you put more points into your skills.
I tried to make the guide's walkthrough fairly thourough. So I'd recommend checking it out if you're not sure what to do.
