And another boss where don't use PoF - Kabraxis (fuck this boss btw). It just causes him to chain proc punisher. Or pretty much against any boss/mob with procs on getting hit, because PoF hits really fast.

I think i found another alternative gear for the end game setup. Using Whispers of Mirakodus as a weapon and Strength Beyond Strength as armor worked wonders for me so Solfege please try this gear combination.

Yeah, I like that weapon. I built a Melee Sorc with it a few patches ago just for fun.

There are quite a few different gear combos that work. I've wanted to add stuff like alt builds and reintroduce the “Tips & Tricks” section to the guide for a long time. Unfortunately, there's a character limit per post (which is why the guide is split among 3 posts already), and I've pretty much reached that limit in each post. In fact, I've been having to cut stuff out of the guide with each update.



@Unda
Good suggestions. Wonder how long before that little +Max Skill Levels trick is “fixed.”

These things would probably be more useful to Feedback Sorc than Melee Sorc (especially the apple thing), but if I can make some room and find a good place, I'll try to add them.

It wouldn't do you any good. I'm terrible at Zorun Tzin. I can't tell what's going on there. Zorun's palette is too similar to the Zombies, the sprites blend in too much with the stage's tileset, things move too fast, and there are too many visual distractions. Plus, I hate anything involving Purify, I hate invulnerability shields, I hate unkillable enemies, and I especially hate that all timered skills still share CD timers.

Got another question about crafting your own weapon.
Is 200% ed the max you can get out of a crafted weapon including using orbs? Because whatever I get out of crafting, using ed MO always caps at 200% which is definitely a lot less than using the runeword
