is probably better as it gives more mana at that stage!

Currently trying out this build and loving it.
I am quite worried to find out when I'll stop steamrolling the game with Arcane Torrent and Mana Sweep.

I started one of these a while ago using Poison / Cold passives. I'm not clear if it's worth going into the poison tree below the passive Vengeful Power. Hive seems useful as a buff but also to add 25% of Vitality to Energy.

My feeling is that Snow Queen vs Warp Armor is a close call, but cold tree has so much more (Elemental summons, Abyss is useful at 1 point and Shatter the Flesh also)...

I have been trying to get high sources of Energy because skills in the cold tree such as Shatter the Flesh are increased in power by Energy (not mana) according to the skill description.

Miasma and Arachnomancy in the poison tree also look useful but probably not at 1 point each - and also there are so many other skills to use the build would be too complex - so if I go further into the poison tree I think it would be just for Hive. It would be useful to hear other people's thoughts on this. Thanks.

hive is worthless if you are a caster , as most of the time you hit/cast your main attacks from a higher distance than the one in which hive can do any damage . unless you go melee/lazy sorc , hive is 1-pointer .

Mana sorc is better. Not much people play mana sorc because gears/umo are expensive

Currently at 117 and farming k3k for hours.. Guess im about to switch of to something else.. Right now its a endless grind for me to beat medium difficulty dungeons, the damage is there but im more or less 2 hit and it gets pretty tedious and frustrating.

Guess switching off to something else would be fine since Im still new and have plenty of stuff to discover, was just hoping to finally get to see the late game since Ive been through the norm-hell like 7times already without really setting a foot into all the new stuff (my 117 mana sorc is my highest so far)

Resistence is maxed out and phys is 22% right now which is my problem.

Also playing singleplayer so cant really trade shrines.. hmm

Edit: guess I will benefit from a uber guide or at least a dungeon order that might make things easier will check out the guide in the comming weeks again since im a fan of the playstyle so far =)
