Not really. Haven't had much time to play recently. Orbs generally have too low damage to make them effective for WDM builds throughout most of the game, but a proc-based setup might be possible. I did find
Galeona's Lash
Galeona's Lash
Jared's Stone (Sacred)

(Sorceress Only)
Required Level: 100
Required Dexterity: 242
One-Hand Damage: (189-240) to (312-399)
Dexterity Damage Bonus: (20/256 per Dexterity)%
Firedance Grants 1% Deadly Strike Per Base Level
40% Chance to cast level 1 Ancients' Hand on Melee Attack
+(160 to 200)% Enhanced Damage
Adds (85 to 120)-(201 to 270) damage
10% Chance of Crushing Blow
+(1001 to 10000) Defense
Socketed (3)

about 3-4 weeks ago. Tried it; seems decent. But again, haven't had much time to theorycraft a build around it.

Thanks! Crystal sword would be better.
That orb is decent though.

Lv50, yet to get any of the TUs I want from Meph (besides Gift Box ones at the start)

Overall, seems like a fun character so far

You're not necessarily farming Meph for the TUs you need. You're farming him for ACs to make what you need and upgrade what you have. The possibility of actually finding what you're looking for is just a side benefit.

And if you haven't done it already, drop everything and do the Level Challenge 1 now before you hit clvl 51.

Yeah, completed it already (wandered around the island for a good few minutes before I noticed TA was moved to an area to the south from the island). Now just thinking whether I should continue playing this in SP or wait for a few days and restart this char on 1.2

Sounds like 1.2 is still "a few weeks" away, fwiw.

Oh, I mixed it PoE's 3.1 release, guess I'll keep playing this then, try to finally reach the "endgame" endgame, since I gave up on my past chars after tackling some medium ubers
